Sightseeing in Norway

Norway is a naturalist’s haven. The sheer beauty of the misty fiords and the breathtaking magnificence of the mountainscape is bound to hold you captive. Start your foray into this country at Oslo , the swinging capital that offers you a host of museums to satiate your cultural curiosity.

The `must-see’ are the northern lights- the Aurora Borealis, which create the most spectacular sky shows during winter nights; and if that’s not enough, then make a trip to Nordkapp, the northernmost point of Europe, windy and freezing, but exhilarating too. Cruising along the fiords can be fun, so too a trip to two of Norway’s most enjoyable cities, Bergen and Trondheim for interesting buildings, great walks and ambience.

Unlike most of Europe, Norway is not a place where you’ll stumble across a medieval castle, an old manor or a palace at every step you take.

True, there are some lovely old cathedrals, like the magnificent Arctic Church in Tromsø, with its eastern wall made completely of stained glass, some castles and lots of museums, but that’s about all.

What Norway is really known for is its natural beauty- its mountains, glaciers, and bewitchingly lovely fiords. For anybody who’s keen on natural beauty and is a good sailor, one experience, which shouldn’t be missed, is the Norwegian Coastal Voyage (Hutigrute), an 11-day trip from Bergen to Kirkenes. A great way to see the coastal beauty of the country, the Hutigruta makes frequent stops along the coast so that passengers can disembark and visit ports.

Live life to the fullest. Make a list of ‘ things to do before I die’ and tick ...
