You are probably thinking the only reason to travel around Norway is the nature. Well think again. We have found 10 better reasons to set Norway as your next destination.

Destination norway trolltunga

There is no doubt that Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in the world with a magnificent landscape full of fantastic mountains and fjords. Then it is understandable that many people believe that Norway only about nature. We give you nine very good reasons for holidays our country, in addition to the fjords and mountains. If you really need more reasons, visit


1. Bryggen, Bergen

Bergen, UNESCO World Heritage site 04 by Giorgio Giorgetti. Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY 2.0) wharf located in the older and more historic part of Bergen, a place that in the Middle Ages was important for trade by sea. Today this is the home of many local restaurants, hotels and a handful of modern shops that make the port one of the most visited tourist attractions. With its rich history is Bryggen 13 properties and 61 colorful wooden buildings protected as part of the UNESCO World Heritage List. So be prepared to see something special.


2. Coastal Highway (Highway Fv17)

If you’d rather go on your own adventure instead of staying in one city you can rent a car or take your own, and drive along the Coastal Highway (Highway Fv17). It may not be as long as Route 66 in the US, but with its 650 km stretch has many interesting places to explore further, take for example a hike along the Green Deceit fortress. If you are thinking about taking the whole trip, remember to enter six ferry crossings in the travel budget.

3. Stave churches

Stave churches can be found here and there in southern and central Norway. The interesting thing about the stave churches is that they are surrounded with lots of mystery and history, and often looks as if they are ripped straight out of childhood adventures. If you only see one, so we recommend visiting one of the largest and most spectacular in Heddal Stave Church, which is a cultural treasure.


4. Ålesund


Aalesund in familiar pose of Matt Rudge. Creative Commons Attribution License (CC BY 2.0) Ålesund city built of wood, but was later burned to the ground in 1904 and had to be rebuilt completely. Much of the city’s current charm can actually be attributed to this fire. Re-Erected by young Norwegian architects who had been trained in Germany, the new and rebuilt city has been heavily influenced by the rich Art Nouveau. If you love food so arranged The Norwegian Food Festival annually in this city every August.


5. Tromso


Tromsø is the seventh largest of Norway’s cities. Then it is just 350 km north of the Arctic Circle, the city is warmer than most other places located on the same latitude, this is mainly due to the heating effect that comes from the Gulf Stream. The city with around 70,000 inhabitants welcomes a large number of university students each year, and that it held many festivals in summer when the city has midnight sun. This makes Tromso to a cultural center in the north, also known as the Paris.


6. Oslo


This is perhaps not a surprising choice, but the city certainly deserves a place on the list. Oslo is full of cultural and artistic activity (check out our 48-hour kulturtur in Oslo), popular shopping streets, food from all corners of the world and a bustling nightlife. With landmarks like the Opera House and Holmenkollen, with mountains in the background, there’s no reason not to make the trip here, at least not if it’s here your plane lands first.


7. Roros


The village, which also goes by the name Bergstaden is known as a mining town with a background in its history in copper mining. With buildings reminiscent of the 17th and 18th century got Røros in 1980 a place on UNESCO to preserve the 80 medieval wooden buildings that exist there. Whether you take a bike ride, go on a beaver safari or Matsafari, or maybe visit the National Park Vingelen, then Roros a perfect place for a day trip to explore Central Norway. For more information on what you can do, visit Roros website.


8. Skudeneshavn


Skudeneshavn is a small but charming village on the island of Karmøy, with a proud maritime history and a population of no more than 5,000 inhabitants. Like many other cities along the coast are Skudesneshavn known as a seilbåtby with beautiful white and old wooden houses and buildings. In fact there are more than 200 wooden buildings from the 1850s that is still intact thanks to good maintenance and restoration. Want to take a sneak peek at what it’s like here, you can see pictures via their webcam at the marina.


9. Lærdalstunnelen


If you want to set a world record, this is your chance! Or at least the chance to pass a. The tunnel is in fact the longest tunnel in the world. It extends 24.5 km between the towns of Lærdal and Aurland in Western Norway. The tunnel took five to build and was completed in 2000. But be prepared to listen to music via mobile phone, the tunnel takes around 20 minutes to drive through and radio signals are bad. But fear not, once you are inside the tunnel so keep a close eye on the special design elements that are adorned with, including “mountain cave lighting” that makes you believe that you are driving in daylight. The tunnel is actually so special that a couple chose to have the ceremony’s in it. And do not be concerned, it was perfectly safe because Lærdalstunnelen boasts high air quality thanks to a special air purifiers. There you have it! Norway with a twist. Unless you are completely secluded in the mountains somewhere, here are some options for local lodging.
