Officially known as the Kingdom of Norway, this country forms a portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula. It shares boarders with Finland, Sweden and Russia. Norway’s extensive coastline is home to its famous fjords, long narrow inlets with steep sides created in a valley by glacial activity. The Geirangerfjord, and the Naeroyfjord are on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list. The coastline of Norway faces the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.
As Norway has a cold climate, tall mountains and glaciers are a few of the natural attractions here. What tourist will mostly enjoy are the winter sports. Hiking in the snow and skiing are only a few of the fun things to do.
Other magnificent attractions in Norway include the Opera in Oslo, the fish market in Bergen, and the North Cape. Norway also offers great water activities such as sailing, swimming and Wild River kayaking. And the fun doesn’t stop there. When in Norway, tourists may also enjoy ice fishing and snowmobile safaris. A great historic tour would be at Tromso’s historic city center. It contains lovely neo-classical merchant’s residences in wood, colourful worker’s houses and some picturesque public buildings. During the tour, you may stop over at some great cafés, restaurants and shopping. Vesteralen is also a nice place to go to as it offers cross-country skiing and an awesome killer whale safari.
For a more cultural tour, Norway’s Oksnes Museum and Losmuseet Lodingen og Norsk Telemuseum are very interesting places to visit.
