The Kingdom of Norway is located in the northwestern part of Scandinavia. Norway is not a member of the European Union. Five million people live here, of which about a million live in Oslo.
Air travel to Norway is provided by Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) and Norwegian Air Shuttle. Oslo has two airports and most cities in Norway have air travel available. You can go on holiday in Norway at any time. In winter there are significantly low temperatures.
Where in Norway must you go? Culture and sightseeing in Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim. Do you want to experience hiking? Then visit one of the national parks and mountains, where you will find excellent facilities for camping. Fishermen can also enjoy it. The rivers are full of fish. Fishing trips in the sea or lakes in Norway are renowned among fishermen.
The most visited monuments are the Kon-tiki Museum, the Nansen Museum with the Fram, the Viking Ship Museum and possibly the Munch Museum and the National Gallery. You can also visit the Royal Palace, Parliament, City Hall or Vigeland Park. In Bergen, the Hanseatic Harbor of Bryggen and the former Royal Castle are worth seeing. The Gothic cathedral is very popular in Trondheim, where the coronations of the kings are still ongoing and the remains of St. Olaf. For more demanding travelers, there is the Geirangerfjord, Trolls and Jotunheimen Mountains with the highest peak of Scandinavia. You can also visit the Lofoten archipelago far to the north or the northernmost cape in Europe, Nordkapp.
Norway is not particularly rich in monuments. Yet everyone here comes into their own. Especially hikers can visit places like Hardangervidda plateau, Rondane and Dovrefjell mountains or Svartissen glacier. Rago and Øvre Pasvik National Parks are relatively little known. So do not hesitate and buy.
