Norway

Dear traveller

Welcome to Norway, home of elusive trolls and fierce Vikings, breathtaking sceneries and magnificent fjords, country powered by nature and nature by endless beauty.

From the very moment you set foot on Norwegian soil you will feel it. That sense of something unique. That feeling of unscaled pride in every one of us. Pride of our country, rich in so many ways, but richer like no other when it comes to beauty: the spectacular view from mythical North Cape towards the freezing Arctic ocean illuminated by the midnight sun; the awe-inspiring 604m drop from the Pulpit Rock towering above the Lysefjord in the South; the old stave-churches found along the scenic roads which carve their insisting way through mountains and glaciers; the particular timeless calm that coats the isle of Lofoten.

Come with us on the boat from Hellesylt to Geiranger and marvel at the cascading waterfalls in this UNESCO World Heritage sight. Take the mini cruise to the village of Flåm, hiding in the deepest fjord of them all, the mighty Sognefjord, and continue onwards to Myrdal with the Flåmsbana, manifestation of the most daring and skilful engineering in Scandinavian railway history. Taste the freshness of the ever-near ocean at Bergen’s flourishing fish market and learn about the profound connection with nature that is an innate quality in every Norwegian child. At the end of your journey please bring this serene spirit with you back home – this is our gift to you.

We look forward to seeing you!
