Magical Norway Holidays
Take a magical trip to the land of the midnight sun and discover Norway’s spectacular scenery. Dramatic snow-capped mountains meet the icy waters of the famous fjords, the northern lights dance across the skies, and boats will take you to spot those most majestic creatures of the sea, Norway’s beautiful whales.
Norway is a fantastic country for outdoor lovers, with everything from skiing, hiking, biking and fishing on offer, and braving the Norwegian weather is well worth it for the stunning natural sights you can experience. If you need to warm up, Norwegians are experts in creating cosy places where you can thaw out and enjoy delicious food, drinks with a kick, and a cheery welcome. Norway’s cities have a lively mix of bars, restaurants, and museums perfect for soaking up that trend-setting Scandinavian culture.
Top Norway Attractions
For many visitors to Norway, a visit wouldn’t be complete without witnessing the spectacle that is the colourful Northern lights, or Aurora Borealis, where the heavens light up with dancing lights of green, pink and purple. Northern Norway from late September to early April is said to be the best time and place to see the lights, as the skies are dark and the temperatures are cool. Snuggle up under a blanket and enjoy nature’s most spectacular show.
Norway has a vast array of gorgeous mountains, forests and coastal fjords to visit, but the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geirangerfjord, has to be one of the most stunning, with towering cliffs and tumbling waterfalls.
If you fancy some culture, then a visit to Oslo, the capital of Norway, is a must. This compact city is home to fantastic museums, wide green parks, a beautiful coastline, and hundreds of bars and restaurants. Discover Norway’s Viking history with a visit to the Viking Ship Museum, immerse yourself in the world of polar expeditions at the Fram Museum, or browse the works of one of Norway’s most famous artists, Edvard Munch, at the popular Munch Museum. With so much to see and do, you have found the perfect short break holiday in Oslo.
Not to be Missed on Norway Holidays
Less well-known that Oslo, the gorgeous city of Bergen is also a top destination. Lying 400km to the west of Oslo, it boasts breath-taking surroundings, with seven fjords and and seven hills leading up from the city’s lovely harbour, scattered with pretty timer houses. Take a cable car ride for a bird’s eye view of the landscape and unforgettable views. Summer holidays in Bergen are popular so it advisable to book your hotels in advance to get the best deals.
