Facts about Norway

Norway is known for nature attractions like fjords, mountains and midnight sun, and is easily accessible by plane from most European countries.

Fjords

Norway is famous for its fjords, two of which, the Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord, feature on the UNESCO World Heritage list. The Sognefjord, the longest of them all, and the Hardangerfjord, famed for its cherry and apple trees are among the most visited. Read more about the Norwegian fjords.

Northern lights

The Northern lights are a common natural phenomenon in Northern Norway, and are most commonly observed above the Arctic Circle between late autumn and early spring. Read more about the northern lights.

Midnight sun

The sun does not set in summer over the Arctic Circle, meaning visitors to Northern Norway enjoy 24 hours of daylight this time of year. Read more about the midnight sun.

Arctic Circle and North Cape

Crossing the Arctic Circle and standing at the North Cape, Europe's northernmost point, are must dos for many travelers to Northern Norway.

Cycling in Norway

Cycle on a remote island in the midnight sun, try a path beneath a mountain plunging into a fjord, or get your adrenalin pumping in one of Europe's top bike parks. You needn't be Thor Hushovd to enjoy a cycling holiday in Norway.
