You’ll Want to Visit Norway After Seeing These 20 Photos

Wow, just wow.

The land of the midnight sun and the northern lights, of epic fjords and ancient glaciers, of charming coastal villages and cutting-edge cities, Norway dazzles, sparkles and shines.

This is one of Europe’s most breathtaking destinations. A long and narrow country in the far north of the continent, Norway has always fascinated. This is Viking country, a place of legends and lore, of sagas and stories. It is also home to some of the world’s most awe-inspiring landscapes.

Nowhere else in the world can you find this many fjords. The Norwegian coastline is incredibly long, characterized by deep bays, islands and inlets. Inland, you will find some of Europe’s tallest mountains, largest glaciers, deepest valleys and densest forests. Moose, wolves and brown bears call these landscapes home. In Arctic Norway, you can see hundreds of reindeer roam the tundra. In its coastal waters, whales and seals migrate.

If rich history and spectacular nature isn’t enough, there are Norway’s cities. Places such as Trondheim and Bergen, Oslo and Alesund entice visitors with their gorgeous architecture, walkable streets and world-class shopping.
