Welcome to Norway-an escape from the ordinary! Here is a country of contrasts, with breathtaking scenery so varied it never ceases to amaze. Here you can witness the wonders of the shifting landscape, from beaches to flatlands and lush open fields. You can explore deep forests where sunbeams filter through the leaves giving a glimpse of the trolls and goblins lurking behind the pine trees. Or feast your eyes on the famous blue-green fjords, cutting a swathe through the mountains into the heart of wonderland Norway-it's a fairy tale within your grasp. In summertime, it is the land of the Midnight Sun; in winter, the land of the Northern Lights.
While Norway is known for its nature and fjord-lined coastline, it has more to offer than breathtaking scenery. Norway is also fun and excitement; walking in the footsteps of the Vikings; riding on a reindeer sleigh; hiking, biking and paragliding; or just sitting back and enjoying one of the world-class cultural events.
The Norwegian Tourist Board's official website: www.visitnorway.com can help you plan your trip, find discounted accommodation and transportation, give hints on shopping and dining and much more that can add to your vacation experience.
Norway beckons! It welcomes you to a memorable, scenic journey through a rich cultural and historical heritage. You'll have plenty to write home about! We hope that our website will inspire you to embark on an exciting voyage through this country of contrasts.
