Norway is one of the nice countries I've visited. There are so many things to see and to do that you need a month to see everything. I spend in this country about 2 weeks and half and I saw it well.
There are some must that a tourist should be see. One of these are: the wonderful town of Bergen, the fantastic Geirangerfjorden, the great Oslo, the marvel Trondheim with his fantastic cathedral, the Lofoten Island (the Paradise on earth), fantastic glaciers and much more.
In Norway you never ger bore and everywhere you can meet fantastic people, to have great sports and to eat excellent food (the fish is fantastic!!! :D).

But a trip in Norway offers a couple of cons: if you drive a car you must pay attention because the speed limit is very low (70 Km/h) and everything is very expensive!!! But these cons are compensated by the fantastic landscape and fjords!!!!

Norway is a country to discover!!!!

Enjoy your journey in this fantastic country!!!

Norway is a very big country with an area of 324,220 Square Kilometers and approximately 4,5 million inhabitants. Over 500 sq km (193 sq mi) of Norway lies north of the Arctic Circle, but the country's western coast usually remains ice free year-round thanks to the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The Kingdom Of Norway border on Sweden, Finland, Russia and Atlantic Ocean. It is a constitutional monarchy with King Harald Y as head of state.

Norway offers its best and brightest from May to September, and at its worst between November and March when average temperatures are below freezing. In the coastal Norway the warm Gulf Stream there can push the mercury just above zero in winter and into the low 20°Cs in summer. In midsummer the north sees no night and even southern Norway has daylight from 04:00 to 23:00. On the other hand, most days in winter are at best comparable to twilight.

    Fine tips and photos from your visit to Norway! Next year I hope to fit in a trip to Oslo, at least, but hopefully also a bit more of the country like some of the fiords.
