Planning a Christmas Vacation in Europe could not be successful without inculcating a church in your Norway itinerary. Hence, on day three of your Norway Christmas Vacations, we have included a visit to the Oslo Cathedral, the main church for the Church of Norway Diocese of Oslo. This is one of the main highlights of Norway which becomes overcrowded during the Christmas vacations. Visit the church on Christmas Eve to witness the real charm of this place. This baroque styled Olso Cathedral was the first church to have ever been established in Norway, hence it definitely deserves a visit.

Day 4: Enjoy the ferry

If trains give you an exposure to the scenic landscapes of Norway, the ferry will introduce the alluring waters. Taking a ferry in Norway is another great way to explore the untamed corners of the country. In Norway, these ferries are called as coaster steamers which you can catch from Bergen. 

Day 5: Explore the Geirangerfjord region

Geirangerfjord is a UNESCO world heritage site and also witness to be a part of the massive  Fjord Norway Network. The total area that it covers is miles long but the places to explore are limited. Some of the best places to visit in Geirangerfjord region include Alesund in the north. Alesund is famous for its icy Norwegian scenery which is perfect for the Christmas Season. If visiting with family, plan an outdoor Christmas party on the icy land Alesund. Besides this, Alesund also boasts the imperious Dalsnibba summit where you can scale at a leisurely pace. You can also book a guide to visit the best spots in lesser time.
