Pocket Guide: Norway
Stretching from the North Sea way up into the Arctic Ocean, Norway is perhaps best known for its majestic coastline. Huge fjords carved out of its west coast have created some of the most stunning scenery in the world but there’s more to Norway than just abundant natural beauty. An incredible Viking heritage, superb wildlife (including polar bears) and Scandinavian sophistication help create plenty to see and do. Norway has discovered a fine balance between the natural and the modern, which means you can enjoy the best of both worlds with a hotel in this great country.
Top Norway Hotel Locations
Oslo and the Southeast - The capital Oslo and the surrounding area are where most Norwegians live. The city is cosmopolitan, full of great hotels and is renowned for its architecture. The farmland surrounding it is tranquil and beautiful.
Northern Norway - Home of the midnight sun and ancient Sami culture. The northern city of Tromso is also here, as well as a large number of northern fjords.
Western Norway - This is real fjord territory, as these vast geographical features run up the coastline. Why not book a hotel in the lively cities of Bergen if Stavanger.
Svalbard - These islands in the Arctic Ocean are a true icy wilderness, where you can discover magnificent scenery and wildlife.
How to Make the Most of Your Hotel in Norway
Head north to Tromso in the summer months to witness the midnight sun. In the winter this is also one of the best places in the world to see the Northern Lights. Head west to the fjords, and discover huge U-shaped valleys carved out of the rock to create some of the world’s most impressive and enigmatic scenery. Oslo, the capital, is a lively city with a reputation for exciting nightlife and culture. It’s also home to interesting architecture and modern design. The former capital and Hanseatic city of Bergen is also well worth a visit but bring an umbrella as it’s been dubbed the ‘rainiest city in Europe’.
One of the most beautiful countries on the planet, Norway’s real thrills lie outside. Nature and the natural world provide unique opportunities for visitors. In the summer you can hike and bike your way around the mountains or make your way down again on a thunderous whitewater rafting trip. In the long winters, there are top skiing, snowboarding and snowmobiling options, or do it the old fashioned way on a dog sled. There’s even a chance to spot polar bears up in the far north of the country. Explore glaciers and Europe’s biggest ice sheets or take to the water to experience the true size and majesty of the fjords. If you’re in the mood for something a little more urban, then hit the bars and clubs in Oslo and Bergen to discover a thriving and energetic cultural scene.
