While destinations on the mainland of Europe always and forever will be popular, I’ve always had a fascination with Scandinavia. Between Denmark, Sweden, and Norway I always thought there was an alternative Europe out there with a rich history, beautiful scenery, and less of a touristy vibe. I asked FlightHub, an online travel agency, about what I could do if I chose to visit Norway. FlightHub review is the best places to see and experience around the world. After consulting with them I wanted to share my top five most interesting places in Norway to visit.
One of the most picturesque ferry rides in the world according to FlightHub, cruising the Geirangerfjord is a must experience journey you need to be apart of if you visit Norway. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Geirangerfjord is an internationally recognized place of natural beauty. Along this 20 kilometre stretch you can expect to see abandoned, cliff-side farms, ice caps, and pristine water. This ride is especially recommended for photographers and nature lovers by FlightHub.
The Northern Lights
While the Northern Lights are visible across the Northern hemisphere, Norway is hands down one of the best places to experience them thanks to their Northern latitude. FlightHub says that seeing them can be tricky due to their random nature, but if you get the chance, make sure you take the time and take them in.
One such place to see the Northern Lights is Svalbard. This Northern region features a polar landscape that is easily accessible. One of last great wildlife sanctuaries in Norway, you could see something as small as a bird, to massive elk and polar bears, which outnumbered humans in this region. In addition to wildlife, you can see the region’s massive ice fields and rangy peaks.
For a country that is loaded with beautiful natural sites you could wonder how you could possibly sample it all. Well, one way to try is to take a ride on the Oslo-Bergen Railroad. This rail corridor is considered one of the most beautiful rail trips in the world according to FlightHub. Featuring forests, fjords, and plateaus, this railway is also practical, connecting the ultra-modern Oslo with the countryside.
This picturesque lookout is one of the most unique resting places on the planet according to FlightHub. Like something out of science fiction or fantasy, the sights you will see here seem like they are out of a nature documentary or film. This sheer cliff features a 600 metre drop and seems like the perfect place to lay down and read a book. This place is only for the dedicated though, as you will be taking part in a minimum two hour hike to reach the summit and a lengthy day-trip just to get there.
