Jaw-dropping fjords and scintillating auroras

Where to go in Norway

Introduction

Cruising the stunning Norwegian fjords, which extend all the way up the west coast of the country, is a key Norway travel highlight. And rightly so – they are truly breath-taking. Geirangerfjord, Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord are the best known and most visited, and seeing at least one of these three is highly recommended.

You might also like to try fishing for king crabs in the Arctic Circle under the Midnight Sun, watching sea eagles in the Lofoten Islands, viewing the swirling Northern Lights while staying in an ice hotel in deep winter, visiting stave churches or small coastal towns, or combining several activities via some of the Norway's most scenic coastal and mountain self-drive routes.

There's also the chance to see polar bears by joining an Arctic expedition cruise in the Svalbard archipelago, a remote outpost of Norway where polar bears outnumber humans.

Back on the mainland, the pretty historic west coast port city of Bergen and the cultured capital of Oslo are two of the most popular starting points for Norway holidays. Both cities are ideal short break destinations, with Viking museums, art galleries and lots of other attractions close at hand.
