Norway is a country that needs to be experienced with all your senses. It’s a bucket list destination if ever there was one! While Norway’s breathtaking landscapes, towering mountain peaks and magnificent fjords are a nature and adventure lovers’ paradise, the country’s cities and towns offer a heady mix of ancient history, contemporary charm and modern sophistication.
The capital, Oslo, is a modern city with historical significance, and for a relatively small population, the city plays an important role in world politics. Nestled comfortably between the Oslofjord and the surrounding indigenous forests, the city is a magnet for international tourists, especially those who seek something a little different in their travel excursions. With a rich history and impressive cityscape, Oslo boasts a kaleidoscope of fascinating cultural attractions. Check out its interesting architecture and immerse yourself in this cosmopolitan city during a trip to Oslo!
Travel to Bergen to experience Norway’s “gateway to the fjords.” Norway’s second-largest city is a wonderful place to relax and take in the local culture and nature. Make sure you bring good walking shoes as you'll want to experience Bergen and the surrounding mountains on foot! Situated on the water’s edge, the old town is a charming waterfront city with character buildings, many cool shops and restaurants, and quirky art scattered around the town.
