Everyone has some sort of an itinerary when they’re visiting a new place, especially if it’s a whole new country. And today we’re going to be talking about some things you should be adding to yours if you’re headed to Norway.
Or if you haven’t yet decided to go to Norway, then maybe this will convince you! Let’s get started, and if you’ve already been to Norway then you may enjoy checking out our 3D fridge magnet souvenirs from there.
Visit One Or More Of Their Fjords -
Whether or not you’re normally a nature lover, there’s no doubt that you can enjoy the beauty that is Norway’s fjords. And Norway is home to over a thousand of them, so you can have your pick.
Sognefjord could be the perfect choice since it’s the longest and deepest one in Norway. It’s called “King of the Fjords” because of its massive size.
Go To The Arctic Circle -
If you don’t mind the cold then you could extend your trip into the northern parts of Norway, you could do this on foot (and by this, I mean take a bus, train, or just drive) or you could take a cruise which would sail you past that area.
You’ll be rewarded with sights of glaciers, fjords, as well as wildlife such as walruses, puffins, polar bears, and maybe even some humpback or minke whales! And of course, you’ll be able to see the Northern Lights.
Take A Train -
Norway has a great train system, it’s easy to navigate, goes past gorgeous scenery, and there are over 2,000 miles of it. So, it’s the perfect way for tourists to explore the country and go from place to place.
Tour Some Of Their Fantastic Museums -
No matter what your historical interests are, you’ll probably find a museum in Norway that will pique them. They have a large variety of options.
Just to name a few, you could visit the Ibsen Museum to learn about Hendrick Ibsen (known for creating dramas) and tour his home which looks the same as when he would’ve lived there, or maybe you’d be more interested in the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History.
Stay In One Of Their Charming Villages -
Almost all the small villages in Norway are perfectly charming places where you can enjoy the cozy atmosphere and soak up the Norwegian culture. And there are no shortages of small B & Bs where you could stay if you don’t like large hotels.
You want to miss the experience of taking in one of the smaller cities in Norway, even if you do venture to one of the larger cities at some point.
As You Can See, There’s Really No Going Wrong With Visiting Norway -
And even though these were some suggestions, you’ll enjoy your trip to this stunning country regardless of what is on your itinerary!
