Norway Vacations

Norway Vacation Packages - Perplexed how to choose the best? One needs to be aware of the place in order to make the right selection and in order to make the best decision. To start with, Norway is particularly known for being the place that has created the perfect blend of the old and the new. By saying “blend of old & new”, we mean that the place that beautifully lets the old charm coexist even if there are new changes and modernization going on continuously. It is that place where a huge number of natural tourist attractions find their perfect space in the middle of the cutting-edge places of tourist interest.  

Norway gives the opportunity to every type of tourist - be it the history buffs, nature lovers, the admirers of the cutting-edge techniques & modern-day developments, the plate is filled with all tastes. While the capital city of Oslo presents to the tourists the modern charm of Norway, the spectacular gorges & the snowy mountains takes travelers to a soothing & peaceful environment. 

And, you must visit Norway, if you really want to experience the sun in the sky all through the day. For this uniqueness, Norway is also sometimes referred to as “The Land of the Midnight Sun”! There are days (in some parts of the year) when the Sun never goes back to rest and it’s there all through. Another fascinating thing about Norway is the northern lights - you can experience this stunning natural light on this part of the earth. In addition to all this, there are a few important things before you make the final decision on the Norway vacation packages. So, here it goes:

Let’s know about some of the best things to do in Norway:

1. Mount Floyen Exploration

Want to enjoy the panoramic view across Bergen? If you really are eager, you must come to Mount Floyen, the 399 meter high summit where you can enjoy the perfectly impeccable view of the city. Norway offers you the facility of the funicular railway that takes you to the top of the mountain in just eight minutes. The view of the city & fjords is just awesome! For other groups of people, who want to experience a little more adventure can hike to the summit or can also mountain bike through the lookout area.

2. Geirangerfjord region 

With the tag of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Geirangerfjord definitely has a lot to offer. It’s also a part of the Fjord Norway Network. Surprisingly, it covers a huge area with Alesund (one of the highlights) lying in the north whose view is perfect. And, other important things to see include sunnyland Fjord, which is another place to experience the perfect view.

3. Oslo Cathedral

This place is one of the must see when you are in Norway and particularly in the capital city Oslo! The Oslo Cathedral was built in its original form during the 11th century and was the first ever church to have been established in Norway. This baroque styled church has gone through an assortment of historical changes and events. A visit to the Oslo Cathedral will educate you with all those historical events & people associated. There are unique & interesting things to see including the huge organ, the ornate pulpit & the colorful murals beautifully covering the ceiling. 

 4. A ferry Ride in Norway

Enjoying a ferry ride in Norway is more like exploring the country! Taking the Hurtigruten ferry is going to be interesting where you will be taken to those corners of the country which are not otherwise that known to many people. You can catch the ferry from Bergen that takes travelers to a long journey of around 12 days through Kirkenes.  Along the way, you can get off the ferry and explore some of the less popular (yet beautiful) areas of Norway.

Unlike many other European countries, you cannot define the best time to go looking for Norway vacation packages. Indeed, the best time to visit Norway will completely depend upon what you want from your vacation and what all you want to do on your vacation.
