Norway Travel Guide

A Quick Intro to Norway

I won’t lie; it costs an arm and a leg to travel in Norway. Flights to the country from elsewhere in Europe are dirt cheap, but once you’re there everything is very expensive.

Still, it’s a beautiful country, known for its beautiful fjords and steep mountains. The northern city of Tromsø is also one of the top places in the world for watching the Northern Lights, which dance around the sky in shades of green, blue and pink.

Oslo, the country’s capital, is home to lots of cool, contemporary architecture and world-class museums.

While you’re there, have your photo taken one the roof of the Oslo Opera House, browse the art at the Astrup Fearnley Museum, take a stroll around Frogner Park and explore some of Oslo’s trendiest coffee shops. For a full list of ideas, check out my guide on the best things to do in Oslo.

Bergen is another city that you should consider on your Norway itinerary. Located on the western coast of Norway, it’s about a 6 hour 45 minute train ride from Oslo. Known for its colorful wooden merchant houses and funicular railway, Bergen has a completely different vibe to the capital and is very pretty indeed.

If you’re feeling adventurous I’d also suggest taking the bus to Stavanger and a ferry over to Tau, which is the base for hiking to Preikestolen, aka Pulpit Rock. This sheer, vertical cliff overlooks a beautiful fjord and is one of the most awe-inspiring things I’ve ever seen.
