breath-taking nature and VIBRANT CITY LIFE 

Oslo climate

During the winter, Norway is often cold, however this makes it perfect for winter sports such as skiing and snow boarding.
Norway is the land of the midnight sun and northern light, the further north you go in Norway, the longer the days are. In Nordkapp, the country's northernmost point, the sun is constantly visible from mid-May to mid-July. ​
The weather in Norway is much milder than one would expect. Because of the Gulf Stream and warm air currents caused by the coriolis effect, temperatures along the coast of Norway are 5-8°C higher than at comparable latitudes elsewhere.

A country of fjords

The incredible fjords of Norway were dug out by ice, stone and rock during successive ice ages, and are often very deep. 
Norway’s deepest fjord, Sognefjord​, drops impressively 1308 metres below sea level.
The depth of the Norwegian fjords permit navigation by large ships, allowing you to experience the fjord's beauty at close. UNESCO has included the fjords of Norway on its prestigious World Heritage list.

Hiking in Norway

Norway offers incredible opportunities for mountain hiking. Gaustatoppen, Besseggen and Preikestolen are among the most famous mountains for hiking in Norway. Their majestic climbs and magnificent beauty make for a unforgettable hiking experience. 
When hiking in the​ Norwegian mountains, it is not unusual to see The Northern Lights. If you go during summer, you will likely experience the Midnight Sun, as the sun never sets in the summer season.

Few visitors forget their first sighting of the Lofoten Islands, laid out in summer greens and yellows, their razor-sharp peaks poking dark against a clear, cobalt sky. In the pure, exhilarating air, there’s a constant tang of salt. A hiker’s dream and nowadays linked by bridges, the islands are simple to hop between, whether by bus, car or – ideally – bicycle.

Hurtigruten -Coastal Ferry
The iconic cruise- and ferry route Hurtigruten on the Norwegian​ fjords takes you on one of the most spectacular journeys on earth.
On it's daily journey between towns Bergen and Kirkenes, it dips into coastal fjords, docks at isolated villages barely accessible by road, draws near to dramatic headlands and crosses the Arctic Circle.

The northern lights - A natural phenomena.
Visible throughout the long night of the Arctic winter from October to March, they dance across the sky in green or white curtains of light, shifting in intensity. While there’s no guarantee that the northern lights will appear at any given time, if you are lucky enough to see them, it’s an incredible experience.

Pulpit Rock​

As lookouts go, Preikestolen has few peers. Perched atop an almost perfectly sheer cliff that juts out more than 600m above the waters of gorgeous Lysefjord, Pulpit Rock is one of Norway’s signature images and most eye-catching areas. It’s the sort of place where you’ll barely be able to look as travellers dangle far more than seems advisable over the precipice, even as you fi nd yourself drawn inexorably towards the edge. The hike to reach it takes two hours and involves a full-day trip from Stavanger.

Stave C​hurches

All over southern and central Norway you’ll come across wooden stave churches. They come in all forms. The Stave churches of Norway, many of which come surrounded in stories of trolls, are without doubt the definition of fairy-tale churches, and none more so than the spectacular Heddal Stave Church.
