Why visit Norway?

Norway Map Outline

“Norway” meaning “path to the North” is often described as the “Land of Midnight Sun”. A country which has 20 hours of Sunlight during the summer and 20 plus hours of darkness during winter. No wonder Norwegian homes, restaurants, shops are lit by hundreds of candles once autumn sets in.

Norway offers unique experiences in different times of the year. If summer is about the Fjords and midnight sun, winter is about chasing the Northern Lights. Not to forget the stories of Vikings, Trolls and Trappers throughout the year. The fierce Vikings that ruled this country and travelled to distant cities in their long ships are an internationally known part of Norway’s history. Besides, the heavenly lights and Fjords, there is more for the adventure junkies as Norway is also the birthplace of modern skiing.  For foodies, Norway’s cuisine with different seafood dishes is unique and must try. If you’re not a foodie, even then you will be intrigued by the berries being used generously with every dish.

For history buffs, stories about Vikings, the Sami culture and Norwegian folklore will fill you in. Best time to visit Norway depends on what is the key experience you have in mind -Northern Lights or Fjords & midnight sun.  If you are looking for an immersive experience in Norway , two weeks would be a good idea.
