6 great reasons to visit Norway

Norway is a beautiful holiday destination, offering a plethora of gorgeous landscapes to explore and activities to fill your itinerary. From the north’s excellent views of the Northern Lights to the idyllic Vega Islands boasting gorgeous landscapes and charming Norwegian villages, natural beauty is ever-present on your break to the Scandinavian country.

We absolutely love Norway and everything it has to offer – check out our top six reasons why!

1. Fantastic Oslo

Norway’s cosmopolitan city is a fantastic place to explore, offering an exciting array of museums, historical monuments, shops, bars, restaurants and shops. The city, which lies on Norway’s southern coast, is known for its beautiful green spaces in particular. Adrenalin-seekers can enjoy the renowned Holmenkollbakken here, a large ski jumping hill located at Holmenkollen – which is also home to the world’s oldest ski museum.

For a more relaxed experience, visitors to the capital can visit the Oslo Opera House in central Oslo, or the popular Fram Museum, a museum focused on the story of Norwegian polar exploration, located on the peninsula of Bygdøy.

2. The Vega Islands

The UNESCO-protected islands of Vega, located just south of the Arctic Circle, are another great reason to visit Norway. The Vega archipelago encompasses more than 6,000 islands, holms and skerries. A visit to the largest islands, Vega, is a must on your holiday to Norway. A journey to the island by boat is sure to please all, offering gorgeous scenery towards the beautiful island. On the island itself, you’re promised an idyllic, peaceful time exploring a remote area, with breath-taking views and charming small villages.

3. Breathtaking scenery

Norway is a truly beautiful country, boasting majestic mountains, waterfalls, glaciers, spectacular fjords and green hillsides. Notable sights to see include its beautiful Feigumfossen Waterfall, a 218 metre high waterfall on the southern side of the Lusterfjord, and the Jostedalsbreen glacier, the largest glacier in continental Europe. Norway is also home to hundreds of thousands of lakes, including Hornindalsvatnet lake, the deepest lake in Europe at 514 metres deep.

4. Vigeland Sculpture Park

Vigeland Sculpture Park is one of Norway’s most popular tourist attractions and the world’s largest sculpture park made by a single artist. The park offers more than 200 fantastic sculptures in bronze, granite and wrought iron and is open all year round for visitors to explore.

5. The Northern Lights

Norway is one of the best locations to view the spectacular Northern Lights, notably in the north of the country between October and March, due to the polar nights making Aurora Borealis easier to see. Seeing the magnificent lights across the night sky is a must on your Norwegian break – if you’re lucky enough to catch them!

6. Dalsnibba Mountain

Dalsnibba Mountain is a popular tourist attraction, offering beautiful panoramic views of snow-covered landscapes and the Geirangerfjord, part of the West Norwegian Fjords UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mountain, located in the UNESCO –protected village of Geiranger, is a must-visit on your Norwegian getaway.
