6 Reasons Norway Should Be on Everyone Bucket List

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.

The fjords

 

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. 

With glistening blue waters that you can kayak down and national parks that you can explore, the fjords are the best place to experience a typical Norwegian landscape.

The Happiness Factor

Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to visit the happiest place on the planet

Winning the honour in 2017 judged on factors including freedom, generosity, honesty and good governance, you’ll feel safe and as though you belong as you wander through the streets and see the incredible sights.

The Northern LIghts

We’ve all dreamed of seeing the incredible phenomenon that is the Northern Lights. 

Thanks to the skies being open and free from light pollution, Norway is thought to be one of the best places in the world to catch the light show. 

If you head on a Norway winter holiday you’re sure to experience this breath-taking scene.

The Wildlife

With everything from polar bears in Svalbard, moose, oxen, whales, wolves, bears and more, Norway is the perfect excursion for nature lovers.

Around every corner you’re likely to see one animal or another, giving you a true feel for how they live out in the wild.

Winter Activities 

Husky rides, sledding and more, if you’re a lover of winter and snow activities, Norway should be top of your list.

Travelling at high speeds across the wilderness is nothing short of a once in a lifetime experience, and if you’re lucky you’ll even have the opportunity to feed and look after the huskies yourself after your ride.

Sleeping in an Igloo 

There’s something quite charming about being surrounded by ice walls, floors and ceilings. 

The Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel allows you to completely immerse yourself in the unique experience. Re-sculpted every year entirely from ice and snow, this labour of love is one of the most iconic hotels in the world and should be seen and experienced by everyone.

No matter when you choose to visit, try and tick off as many things on this list as you can and more, that way you’ll be sure you make the most of this truly magical country.
