HIGHLIGHTS OF NORWAY
Norway’s majestic fjords are one of the greatest travel destinations in the world and have to be seen to be believed. Vast river valleys carved into the earth by the relentless advance of now-melted glaciers, the fjords take up the majority of Norway’s coastline, with the most-visited including the Geirangerfjord and the Sognefjord.
The Northern Lights are one of the most beautiful natural wonders on Earth, and northern Norway is as good a place as any to see them. The clear skies of the Lofoten Islands make them an impossibly scenic place to view the aurora.
A polar bear cruise is an unforgettable experience, departing from the desolate, surprisingly wildlife-rich region of Svalbard; other animals you can hope to see include walrus, minke whales and arctic fox.
The city of Bergen, Norway’s second-largest, is centred around the historic wooden waterfront of Bryggen (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and is home to thriving artistic, cultural and food scenes and brilliant galleries and museums.
