I have an unbridled passion for Norway! But you probably already knew that.
The first place I visited in Norway was Oslo and as charming as the city is my obsession with Norway only started this year when we went finally got see the Fjords. (First time was Aurlandsfjord, Sognefjord and Nærøyfjord. Second time was Lysefjord on our hike up to Pulpit Rock.) Essentially, if you’re ever in Norway and find yourself in a city, take some time to step out of the city and experience the natural wonders Norway has an abundance of – that’s truly the part of Norway that will leave you head over hills with this amazing country and desperate to keep visiting!
One place in Norway that always calls to me are The Lofoten Islands. Seeing as we’re birds of a feather, you and I, I’m more than certain that you’ll be able to see why you definitely need to visit The Lofoten Islands once you’ve been through the following…
1.) Those amazing sunsets!
2.) The colourful houses
3.) The activities you can get up to here. (Fjords, whale watching, diving… The list does go on).
4.) The magnificent mountain peaks
5.) The amazing views which act as a brilliant reward for hiking up to anywhere here.
6.) Trying some stockfish. It’s a tradition that’s over a 1,000 years old. You’ve got to try it!
7.) Perhaps trying your hand at catching some too?
8.) And this is a big one – The Northern Lights!
9.) The long summer days and the chance to see the midnight sun.
10.) Lofoten’s dramatic and picturesque winters!
See what I mean? Its a pretty impressive place and definitely one that gets you very excited about visiting Norway!
