Traveling to Europe can be one of the most memorable travel experiences ever. And hey, if you got the cash, you can indulge in some of the finest trips this beautiful continent can offer.
One country you should definitely not miss out in exploring is Norway. The place is magnificently beautiful, complete with scenic landscapes and friendly locals. If you're still debating whether you should include Norway on your travel bucket list, here are some reasons why you should.
The locals are some of the friendliest people you'll ever meet. Seriously, they are! If you're lost or need a little quick tip, Norwegians are more than happy to help you. You won't have any problem with communication as well, since the majority of the people speak English.
The country's train journeys won't make you want to get off board. Taking into account the Bergenbana from Oslo to Bergen, this train line is one of the most dazzling train trips in the world. It connects Norway's two major cities, but the train ride itself is where the pleasure is. Outside, you'll see the most beautiful landscapes and sceneries. All trains are also equipped with fast Wi-Fi!
Norway's fjords provide the best backdrop for the most amazing photo ever. Norway is famous for its fjords -- one look at them you don't have to ask why. These waterways are pretty amazing, and the country has almost two dozen of them. Make sure to visit all the major fjord areas in Norway: Rogland, Hordaland, Sogn og Fjordane, and More og Romsdal.
The country's culinary scene is quirky, but well worth the try. Did you know that dinner is mostly the only hot meal Norwegians eat during the day? Yet their food choices are some of the best you'll ever taste. Most ingredients in their meals are comprised of potatoes, root vegetables, and seafood. If you're looking for one place to satisfy your Norwegian food cravings, go to Mathallen Food Hall.
Norway is now accessible more than ever. Unlike before, Oslo, Norway's capital has now more direct flight options through Norwegian Air. Its Lowfare options provide cheap roundtrip tickets from places like Boston, Ft. Lauderdale, Oakland, Los Angeles, Puerto Rico, and Orlando. Recently, a Las Vegas direct route to Oslo has also been added.
