A rippling landscape of jagged mountain peaks, creaking glaciers and crashing waterfalls, Norway is Europe at its most sublime. The country is an adventure wilderness par excellence – and you can see it all without (necessarily) spending a fortune. Whether visiting loveable, laidback cities or gorgeous fjord-side hamlets, staying in a cosy rorbu (fisherman’s cabin) or exploring Norway’s re-energised culinary scene, use our map of Norway to plan your trip.
Think about trying a wildlife safari in Svalbard to spot polar bears, whales and walruses or hiring a snowmobile to traverse the frozen Arctic wastes. Or you could take a hike through the spectacular Jotunheimen mountains, where you can take in the view atop Norway’s tallest peak, Galdhøpiggen. Feeling brave? Then tackle the narrow ledges and sheer drops on the Besseggen Ridge to witness the stunning views. If art’s your thing, the unique Vigelandsparken in Oslo is filled with over 200 bronze and granite sculptures by the sculptor Gustav Vigeland and is a favourite spot with locals and visitors alike.
