Exploring the Pristine Beauty of Norway

by Don

Norway was once named the best country to live in the whole world by the United Nations and if the tourist attractions are anything to go by, then it sure is not only a great place to live but also a popular tourist hub if you are looking for a serene yet memorable treat away from the hustle and bustle of a busy city life. Notable tourist attractions in Norway include cultural heritage, monuments, museums, fjords, and the wildness that will really drive you wild and crazy.

The famous and renowned Norway in a Nutshell tour is the only way you will get a complete Norway experience when you ride on the train, take a road journey uphill, and enjoy the fjord cruise as you explore Norway in borrowed time. Rest assured Norway in a Nutshell tour has different packages that offer 1-7 days itinerary to go with your travel schedule. You can start touring Norway from Bergen or Oslo, wherever it is convenient with you.

A great way to tour the famous Norway fjords and surrounding pristine beauty of Norway is to join a cruise and start to explore the villages and farms surrounding the fjord areas. You can only reach some of these beautiful villages by ship especially during the winter, but whatever the case, one thing that is always guaranteed is the fact that you will be amazed and thrilled by the natural tranquility and beauty of the surroundings.

The other way to enjoy the pristine beauty of Norway in the wildness is by taking a tour of Norway at the two most popular rails not only in Norway but in the whole world – the Bergen and the Flam Railways. The Bergen train is the major railway line that commutes Oslo and Bergen, traversing the famous National Park and the Hardengervidda highland plateau. On the other hand, the Flam Railway is among the steepest railway lines the world over, having an attitude of 4,000 ft above sea level, it is actually a side railway line of the major Bergen Railway, and they both truly offer the most memorable and thrilling experience in Norway.

As you cruise in these destinations, you will experience what the Norway fjords have in store for you, you will see snow capped mountain tops, and you will also see waterfalls cascading beautifully down from rocky hillsides – yes, that beautiful scene that can never be described in writing. At the foot of the Norway Mountains is where the famous Flam Valley is located from which you can be able to enjoy the glorious scenery of the rivers, the waterfalls, and the snow-capped mountain peaks from different great view angles.

Naeroyfjord and Geirangerfjord are undoubtedly the most popular Norway fjords, which are actually listed as UNESCO World Heritage sites. The most beautiful fjord is undoubtedly the Naeroyfjord, a creek of the large Sognerfjord. It is around 10 miles long and very attractive indeed.

Other must-sees in Norway include Trondheim, Hammerfest, the Arctic Circle, Ålesund, and Lillehammer, to name but a few.
