Rediscover the Viking age
If you are a history buff, Trondheim is a must see – it’s over 1000 years old and was founded by King Olav Tryggvason. You can visit the Archbishop’s Palace, one of the oldest and most well-preserved medieval castles in Europe, and then go on to taste some of the hearty foods prepared with fresh local ingredients that Trondheim is renowned for.
Go hiking, kayaking swimming or skiing in the great outdoors
No matter what the season, the best way to experience Norway is to follow the locals’ lead and get outside! Norway has a real outdoor culture, allowing you to step away from the stresses of modern-day life and reconnect with nature. You could take in the beauty and tranquillity of the countryside by swimming or kayaking on the lakes, or if you’re an adrenaline junkie head for the ski slopes.
Get up close to rare wildlife – from whales to eagles
Norway is home to a whole host of rare animal and bird species. Does a midnight whale trip appeal? Around the Norwegian fjords, you can spot seals, fish or rare eagles. If you travel to the Svalbard islands in the far north, you might even be rewarded by the sight of a polar bear in the wild.
Do like the Norwegians and relax in a fisherman’s cottage
Most Norwegians get away from the city in the summer for a long leisurely holiday in a fisherman’s cottage on the edge of a lake or hidden in the forests. What a way to de-stress, kick back and relax in picturesque surroundings. Follow their lead and book a traditional fisherman’s cottage and you won’t regret it as you step back in time (with the latest mod-cons, of course), reconnect with nature and forget the stresses of modern-day life.
Explore Bergen and its delectable food scene
Bergen, Norway’s 2nd largest city, is picture-postcard perfect. Wander through streets of charming painted wooden houses, pick up some cute presents and mementos and then try out any of the well-recommended restaurants that have popped up in this small corner of Norway.
So, what are you waiting for? Don’t miss out on the amazing experiences that Norway has to offer! Nowhere else will you experience such spectacular and varied countryside, be able to take to the slopes all year round or see rare wildlife in such breath-taking surroundings.
