Norway Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 66%, Norway is the ancestral home of the Vikings, a land of beauty and tradition that will both captivate and enchant PlanetHoppers! It also seems to do everything just a little larger than life - a bit like the Vikings. Take for instance the Norwegian Fjords, which represent the most stunning fjords to be found anywhere in the world. They can perhaps be seen best by taking the Oslo to Norway Fjord Railway, where your train will pass from land to sea and back again. Then, of course, you have the awe-inspiring - and kind of eerie - Northern Lights, which represent Mother Nature's ultimate light show. But you can never forget tradition when you visit Norway. Whether it's fishing at midnight by the dim glow of the midnight sun, or watching crystal works being produced at the Hadeland Glassworks, it all forms the fabric of Norway, a stunning and diverse land.
