Norway Photos Gallery: 26 Of My Favorite Photos From Norway

This May, I was lucky enough to spend nearly two weeks in the wonderful country of Norway. I’m far from a professional photographer, but none the less, I ended up with a lot of photos that I really loved and wanted to share. Here are twenty five of my favorites, taken across four cities (Bergen, Odda, Oslo, and Fredrikstad). With any luck, my Norway photos gallery will give you an idea of how incredibly scenic Norway is and show a fraction of what it has to offer. 

 

  1. Views from the grounds of Halden Prison, in Halden, Norway.

13. These tall, skinny trees were common throughout the forest on Mount Fløyen, in Bergen.

 

14. Cute souvenirs that tested my willpower in a Bergen souvenir shop. I had to keep reminding myself this would not serve me at all and would not be worth carrying around in my already full backpack for the next six months!

17. Views of the Bryggen wharf. Note the two buildings in the middle that are under construction, but covered with a tarp to make them blend in and not ruin the photo as much for us tourists! Made me giggle.

18. We discovered a little passageway off of Bryggen with historic buildings that were so adorable to photograph.

24. Conquering Trolltunga! I desperately needed the knee brace after the 18 miles it took to hike up and down.

25. The famous Trolltunga Rock that so many flock to each year for the views and the photos. I’ve been told by the locals that there are so many other hikes with just as pretty views, but I still think it was worth the trek to get to this spot!

26. Another icy view from the train ride from Oslo to Bergen. We saw snow, ice, green rolling hills, farms, rocks, lakes, waterfalls, and everything in between!
