Norway is a country that has everything to satisfy your appetite for discovering incredible places and unique landscapes. The chance to marvel at unique landscapes, visit endless lakes and witness the Northern Lights are just some of the reasons to visit. The streets of Oslo, the Norwegian capital, are home to nothing but magnificent buildings and cultural sites, such as the Opera House, the Viking Museum, the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Fram Museum, and the National Gallery. If it's nature you're after, one of the most photographed, admired, and feared places in Norway is Preikestolen, a large rocky outcrop north of Stavanger. Next, visit Geiranger Fjord, a stunning valley of cliffs, water, and nature, which is continually crossed by huge cruise ships. It is also a tourist-friendly area, offering a variety of activities such as hiking and kayaking. And, of course, a trip to Norway should not miss the Lofoten Islands, located in the north of the country above the level of the Arctic Circle, but it is a destination that can be visited all year round. Snow-capped mountains, crystal-clear waters, forests, roads, and small villages with colorful houses are just some of the attractions of this archipelago. From towns such as Longyearbyen, you can take guided tours to see polar bears in the wild. These incredible, majestic creatures are awe-inspiring to behold, but don't forget that they are wild and dangerous. Norwegians can not only boast that they live in one of the most beautiful and happiest countries in the world, but they can also say with their mouths full that it is one of the safest states in the world. However, a holiday in Norway is far from cheap, as both airfare and living costs are expensive.
