Norway
The Essential
Fjords, strings of islands, mountains and the mythical North cape and its end of the world atmosphere... Norway is grandiose and home to some of the "wildest" territories on the planet.
The fjords are of course the most spectacular features of the Norwegian landscape. You can contemplate them from a cruise ship or during a drive along the coastal express road, Hurtigruten, that will take you to the immense expanses of Laponia; alternatively you could head for the winding roads and breathtaking landscapes of Nordfjord, or the Atlantic Road dotted with daring feats of engineering.
However, before you set off, take the time to explore Oslo. Norway's capital offers the quintessence of the country's culture in a stunning setting, as the collections of the Bigdøy museums and the Edvard Munch Museum will rapidly convince you. However, Bergen, the "city of wood" is commonly agreed to be the county's most beautiful, thanks to its medieval district, Bryggen.
Norway's cities, emblematic of the entire country, feature a happy marriage of tradition, modernity and innovation.

The Lofoten Islands

There’s always time to contemplate nature on the Lofoten Islands. It’s a continuous, awe-inspiring show, so just sit back and scan the horizon. The rarely stable weather makes the colours of sky and scenery change with each passing minute, constantly shifting from blue to pink, while the mountains are lit up or cast into shade…
