Why Norway is a great holiday destination
A country best known for its whole host of deep blue, sheer-sided fjords, this European country offers breathtaking activities, wonderful sceneries, and many other vacation opportunities for a one memorable Norway holiday.
Norway is country with only 4.8 million people. Ten percent of which is living in the capital Oslo and the rest scattered sporadically in towns. One popular city to visit in Norway is the historic Bergen.
The approximately 386,000 square kilometer Norway stretched from the Skagerrak in southern Denmark—the Norway and Denmark boundary—to northern part of Barrents Sea and the Russian border. Norway is mainly composed of mountains, forests, rivers, and lakes. As such, you may take your holiday in Norway either by ship, train or road – even during winter, spring, summer or fall.
You might probably know how famous Norway is for its remarkable fjords, which are deep water trenches. And why it is that remarkable? Imagine a vast stretch of water with its vibrant color that mirrors the sky. Picture the stretch of water that flows very calmly and peacefully. Along the stretch of water are phantom mountains very far away. Do you imagine how great that is? Well, if you do, then you now believe how Norway’s fjords can be superbly stunning, not to mention fjords are actually trenches where the highest mounts and cliffs rise out of the sea, literally.
With such vast stretch of water, no wonder tourists spending their holiday in Norway commonly used ship to explore the beauty of the country. Ship nowadays is a comfortable and practical way of discovering the striking and intricate coastline. The Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voyages may ring a bell. A well-known holiday adventure, it offers packages that explore the coastlines of both Norway and Sweden through its Great Nordic Odyssey holiday package.
But wait, halt your excitement. The Great Nordic Odyssey holiday package operates only during the months of January to April. This is for tourists to see the northern lights. The northern lights are another holiday tour Norway is again famous for.
If you are not so much interested with coastline tour (there probably be a few people of these types), there are other activities that you can do to spend your holiday in Norway. This country is blessed with magnificent glaciers, dense forests, expansive plains, and beautiful river valleys. Don’t worry for there are many packages available for this kind of adventure which allows you to ride on scenic railways.

During these months, weather is fairly fine with temperatures in the Bergen area averaging 14 degrees Centigrade. Also, on these times of the year, wild flowers are at their bloom.
