Full of natural beauty, Norway is one of the most stunning countries in the world. However not every traveller is an outdoorsy one and there are also bustling cities to visit as well. Full of history and museums, the country can cater to any visitor all year round.
Nature and Wilderness
One can’t go to Norway without visiting the Western Fjords. Famous throughout the country, they aren’t limited to a particular area though the West of Norway does boast the most dramatic ones with dramatic cliffs, mountains and deep valleys.

Hitting the Towns
Beautiful Bergen is the second largest city in Norway and was the main port since the Middle Ages. It sports a waterfront from the 15th century, which is simultaneously a working port and a tourist destination for those wishing to try some seafood. Perfectly situated to visit the fjords nearby, there is also plenty of history to see within the city itself.
Of course the capital city of Oslo is another must. Vibrant and modern it hugs Oslofjord and has two thirds of its cityscape made up of lush green parks. The city is also home to fifty museums, which include The Scream by Edvard Munch and a number of historic building and artefacts museums.
