Many traveller can Norway a „paradise of the North“. This large country should definitely be in the list o any nuture and adventure lover. This is a land of deep, dramatic fjords, mighty glaciers and midnight sun. Part of the country lies within the Arctic Circle, including the isolated archipelago of Svalbard, but other regions are also unspoilt, uninhabited wildernesses and nearly as remote.
Norway’s most iconic symbol is the fjord, a sheer-sided inlet gouged out by glaciers. West Norway is fjord country and has Europe’s longest, the Sognefjord, which is one of the most visited, along with the Hardangerfjord. Listed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord are equally impressive, with their vertiginous sides, snow-capped peaks and magnificent waterfalls. One of Europe’s most spectacular train journeys is in Norway. The Flam Railway runs from Myrdal in the mountains dropping down over 800 metres to Flam on the shores of Aurlandsfjord and passes roaring waterfalls.
