NORWAY LUXURY TRAVEL
Norway is a Scandinavian nation bordered by Finland and Russia to the North-east, and Sweden to the East. It offers a wide coastline that faces the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea, and is famous for its primal fauna and flora, grand sophistication, incredible Northern Lights and its many outdoor possibilities for adventures.
Norway is one of the most spectacular destinations of our planet. It’s a country of extreme stirring landscapes, serving as backdrop for some of the most beautiful towns in Europe. Indeed, it encompasses mountains that resemble natural fortresses, glaciers zigzagging down from ice fields, infamous fjords that are horrendously steep, and beautiful archipelagos.
The northern part of the country is located above the Arctic Circle. As such, visitors can watch the midnight sun phenomenon as the sun is visible for full 24 hours, as well as the fascinating northern-lights sightings. It is one of the world’s most amazing natural phenomena and Norway is one of the best places to see it! In Svalbard, the northernmost inhabited region of Europe, there is no sunset for approximately four months. The opposite phenomenon, polar night, occurs in winter when the sun never rises above the horizon during the day. Northern Norway is one of the most varied wildlife-watching destinations in Europe; it is a combination of High Arctic landscapes, Atlantic shorelines and boreal forests sheltering an astonishing array of species. You can watch whales, birds, and even polar bears and walruses, as well as wild reindeers, Arctic foxes and prehistoric musk oxen.
Outdoor enthusiasts cannot get enough of this mesmerizing Scandinavian gem, as so many activities can be enjoyed: dog-sledding or snowmobiling far up North, fishing, hiking, climbing, kayaking or other water sports, cruises in the deep fjords of the West coast or around the islands, sea life watching, cross-country and alpine skiing in winter, and many more. Norway truly is a destination one has to see at least once in a lifetime.
The country’s cities are clean, charming, cosmopolitan, stylish, and innovative, pushing the bar very high in terms of design, innovation and culinary experiences – yet another reason to discover this region. Although very modern, Norway has kept strong ties to history and traditions: the city of Trondheim is over 1’000 years old and possesses the medieval Archbishop’s Palace, and there are numerous stave churches that can be seen all over the country dating back to the 13th century.
