Probably one of the most adventurous and breath-taking destinations in Europe, Norway boasts incredible landscapes, cliffs, snowy hills, forests, glaciers and so much more.
Whether you venture there for a long weekend or an extended holiday, here are some of the reasons why Norway should be on your travel bucket list.
This view really is a sight to behold. Carved by an ice sheet that covered Northern Europe during the ice age, many of the fjords have become timeless natural attractions.
