Norway Tourism

An enchanting mix of cities and villages, of fjords and breathtakingly beautiful seas, Norway is one of Europe’s few countries where you can be in a busy city in the morning and out in the countryside, without a soul around for miles, by the evening. The country’s main cities- Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and the like- are as swinging and modern as many in continental Europe, but out in the countryside, life is still as quiet as it was a century ago.

Norway means many things to many people. `The Land of the Midnight Sun’, this is the country where during the summer, the sun does not go down even at night (not a phenomenon all over Norway, though- it happens only in the Lofoten Islands). This is the land of famous explorers like Amundsen and Thor Heyerdahl and the greatest of all, the legendary Vikings; of literary and artistic giants like Edvard Munch and Henrik Ibsen. And, in contrast, it’s also the land of people like the Sami Lapps, who even today still live by herding reindeer.

An unusual country that has virtually everything you could want: natural beauty, adventure, beautiful medieval cities, and more.

Isn’t it strange that the sun never fully sets during the summer months in Norway? You can even witness sunlight until midnight! For this, Norway is also known as “the Land of the Midnight Sun”.
