Places you shouldn t miss on your trip to Norway

For many potential travellers, under-the-radar Norway means little more than fjords, fisherman’s sweaters and Edvard Munch’s The Scream. But it’s this blank-slate unfamiliarity that makes the Scandinavian home of almost five million an exotic lure.

Oslo, of course, is the arrival point for most. But after hitting the capital’s surfeit of cultural attractions – including must-sees like the Akershus Fortress, National Gallery, Ibsen Museum and the Munch Museum – it’s time to spread your wings.

Famous Places of Norway

Lillehammer, host of the 1994 Winter Olympics is a hub of hiking. The town’s Norwegian Olympic Museum is a highlight.

Roros a celebrated old-town charmer lined with painted wooden homes that’s like stepping back in time.

Tromso: It’s the undisputed cultural capital and party town of northern Norway. Visit in July if you want to enjoy the Bukta Festival, an outdoor live music event that takes full advantage of Tromso’s midnight-sun season.

Lofoten Islands in the Arctic Circle: Home to moose, sea eagles, otters and puffins, all set around a beautiful coastline

Norway Schengen Visit Visa allows foreigners to visit the country for 90 days.
