Norway is in many ways praised and famous for the marvelous geographical landscape. The altitudes are especially appreciated by many Europeans who live further south in very flat areas. They mostly travel here to hike in the summer, and ski down the mountain sides in the winter, however endless opportunities of outdoors activities are available in the Norwegian landscape, like mountain biking down the steep sides, going on adventurous trips in dog sleds across the icy fields up north, and even surfing in the ice cold waves on the many beaches. Norway covers a coastal area, so you’re always close to water.
Some of the most common destinations in Norway are geographical sights, like Preikestolen, which is a large formation of cliffs that's almost entirely flat, and then all of a sudden descends in a 90 degree turn nearly 600 meters down. More than 300.000 tourists visit this spot every year. Other famous activities include walking on the glaciers in the north, Hiking to the large rock in between two cliffs called Kjeragbolten or whale watching.
Apart from admirable nature and wildlife, Norway is speckled with small charming villages full of wooden cabins and villas. Whole towns full of summer homes are located along the coast line, where the Norwegians gather in the warmer months to lay around all day amongst smaller rounded cliffs and splatter around in the ocean. These rock formations are unique to Norway and are incredibly fascinating.
If you prefer a more metropolitan life, some of the larger cities are ready and full of fashionable shops, cafes with delicious fresh Norwegian pastry, and museums, galleries and restaurants en masse. The restaurants are especially worth a visit, as the Norwegians are known for their natural skill in the culinary world. 6 restaurants have been granted Michelin stars, and 44 are on the Michelin guide.
The food might come off to you as quite expensive, as on average Norwegians earn a significantly larger amount of money than other countries.
