Ever since I first saw the amazing images of the glorious northern lights strewn across the sky, Norway has been on my must visit list. Those incredible green and pink hues which illuminate the sky have made Norway one of the most idealised places to visit in the world. As well as the Aurora Borealis and the stunning natural wonder of the lights, there are so many other reasons why I want to visit Norway, here’s a few:
Norway’s capital is one of the most amazing cities in the world. A cosmopolitan metropolis surrounded by such breath-taking natural beauty is like no other. Famed for its amazing Scandinavian architecture and abundance of galleries and museums, it’s definitely a must visit city for culture seekers. At the amazing opera house you can experience a fantastic opera performance of ballet by some of the country’s most amazing performers. There are some really cool bars and restaurants to visit too, so Oslo is a must stop for foodies like me.
The Fjords and Mountains
I’ve always been awe-struck by Norway’s beautiful scenery. In the west of the country there are some of the most amazing Fjords in the world. A big contrast from the lively Oslo, you can visit the fjords by train and be amazed by the beautiful mountain resorts. From waterfalls to amazing mountain peaks there is so much natural beauty to see. Plus, there’s also an amazing amount of winter sports to partake in for adventure seekers.
The university city of Trondheim is the biggest city in central Norway and, thanks to its student population, is full of life. If you’re looking for a lively trip outside of Oslo this is definitely the place to visit. I want to hit up all the amazing bars and look at the stunning Scandinavian architecture. Full of little bakeries, fabulous museums and cute cafes, this is the city to visit for young people. There’s so much to do from cycling through the city to boat trips and shopping in the gorgeous designer boutiques.
I’ve always wanted to visit Norway because of its immense diversity, Wexas have some amazing trips where you can see it all. Imagine spending a day by the breathing lakes to then dancing the night away in a scandi bar in Oslo. There’s so much cool architecture and shopping to be done as well as natural landscapes that cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
