Why Norway

Vibrant cities and towns, quiet and stunning nature – Norway offers a wide variety of experiences that will last a lifetime. The epic scenery of Norway never fails to impress. The midnight sun, crystal clear fjords, northern lights, icy peaks and one of the world’s largest coral reefs in the world, are all but a few natural wonders to explore in this Viking homeland.

Get acquainted with Sámi people and their cultural heritage

The Sámi are the indigenous people of Norway, Sweden, Finland and parts of Russia. They have inhabited these arctic regions for more than 10.000 years. They are well known for their colourful clothes, traditional joik and their huge herds of reindeer. Norway has more than 200.000 reindeers and only Sámi people are entitled to own reindeer farms as it is part of their culture. One thing which is not to be missed while in northern Norway is the unique possibility to go on a reindeer sledding trip, and the feeding of a reindeer.

Norwegian cities and towns are full of cool contemporary restaurants that focuses on local and seasonal food. Norway introduced salmon sushi to the world and there is even the northernmost sushi restaurant in the world in Svalbard. Seafood in Norway is amazingly fresh – and is not to be missed!


Meet Norwegian Vikings in the land og the midnight sun

The first record of Norwegian Vikings dates back to the late 8th century. We might mostly remember the Vikings as raiders and pillagers of coastal areas of Europe mainland and the British Isles, but the Vikings were much more than that. These fierce men of the North were indeed also traders and explores looking both to the East and to the West. Discoveries of Iceland, Greenland and Vinland – an area of North America – and great trading posts in the Byzantine Empire are but a few achievements generated through the Viking period.

Norway is known as the country of the midnight sun. This phenomenon takes place during summer when the Arctic Circle experiences 24 hours of daylight. The longest days on the planet lasts not just for hours in the Norwegian arctic, but weeks. You might want to join the locals and enjoy a midnight fishing trip or a midnight mountain hike.

Immerse yourself into countless natural wonders

One of the main reasons why Norway is unique is due to the vast number of stunning fjords, breath-taking waterfalls and dazzling mountain sceneries. The fjords are cutting their way from the coastline into the country, carved out by the icy glaciers, centuries ago. You haven’t really been in Norway before you have explored the famous Geirangerfjord which is considered to be one of the most beautiful fjords in the world. The fjord is a listed UNESCO World Heritage Site. You might want to catch a glimpse of the waterfall of “The Seven Sisters” which seen from a distance can resemble the hair of seven women.

Norway holds many magical experiences. From October until March, during the polar nights, when the days are shortest, you might be able to see the breath-taking Northern Lights. The magical swaying of blue, green and yellow colours in the sky are caused by the solar winds that meets the atmosphere. We are most likely to see this around midnight, this is when the light shines the brightest.
