Places to go:
Geirangerfjord: The number one place in nearly every guidebook and website about Norway. And there’s a reason for it. Norway is known for waterfalls. The Seven Sisters, the Bridal Veil, and the Suitor are the three waterfalls that you will be able to see there. Go hiking, fishing, and kayaking while being surrounded by Norway’s beauty. I honestly can’t describe this place. Just have your camera ready when you go.
Bergen Railway: Known as the world’s best train ride, the Bergen Railway runs daily throughout the year. There are many rides to choose from including the Flåm Railway which is one of the steepest railways in the world. All of the trips are surrounded by breathtaking scenery, in both the summer and winter.
Bergen: The second largest city in Norway has a population of about 270,000 people. It is known for it’s restaurants, art galleries, and boutiques. The coastal city is also surrounded by mountains and fjords. There are countless museums to visit including the Bergen Art Museum, the Edvard Grieg Museum, and the Old Bergen Museum. There is something here for everyone, and is worth a visit.
