Norway is a destination that will interest tourists who like nature and wild, harsh landscapes. It is a perfect place for people who value active tourism, both in summer and winter. In winter and early spring, you can also admire the northern lights.
Raw, untouched by civilization and tempting with wonderful views. This is what Norway is like. Hundreds of kilometers of coast cut by fjords, rugged mountains, rivers where you can fish and the possibility of camping "in the wild", even in national parks, make people looking to escape from the hustle and bustle of cities come here. In the more popular places, there is a high-level tourist infrastructure, but in many places, when going on a trip with a tent, you may not meet anyone.
The fjords are the most spectacular elements of Norway's landscape. The most popular of these are Geirangerfjord, Sognefjord and Lysefjord with the famous Preikestolen. On the other hand, on the Hardangervidda Plateau, you can see the peculiar rock of Trolltunga, or Troll's Tongue, suspended 700 m above the surface of Lake Ringedalsvatnet.
More and more tourists choose the northern part of Norway as their tourist destination. The rocky islands of Lofoten tempt with amazing views and the possibility of admiring the northern lights in winter. The small town of Tromsø, located behind the Arctic Circle, has also been promoted to the capital of the aurora hunters, which also offers many opportunities for active leisure, both in winter and summer. Those wishing to reach the edge of Europe, in turn, can go all the way to Nordkapp, the northernmost cape on the mainland in Europe.
Although Norway is primarily nature, its cities also have a lot to offer. The capital city of Oslo is a modern metropolis with interesting museums and remarkable contemporary architecture. Monument lovers can head to Stavanger, where Norway's oldest cathedral is located, or to Bergen, whose Old Town, consisting of wooden houses on stilts, is included in the UNESCO list.
