Planning a trip to Norway? If you love dramatic, breathtaking landscapes, hiking the great outdoors, snuggling up under thick blankets to watch the northern lights dance, or sampling traditional dishes of fresh fish, you might fall in love with Norway. You’ve been warned. Of the countries I’ve travelled, Norway is a top contender for places I could actually see myself living someday and one I dream of returning to, frequently. Even better? Norway is a destination that accommodates sustainability, in fact, incorporates it into the fabric of the country.
Here’s everything you need to plan a trip to Norway! So what are you waiting for?
