Norway is the travelers’ paradise. You will explore the lavish greenery in the lap of mountains embraced by sea on all sides and the Fjords, exclusive for Norway. To venture this land of myriad tourist spots within short time you will have to target the main five attractions from Norway.
Start from Oslo, capital of Norway, located at Oslo Fjord. The main attractions are Vigesland Sculpture Park, Holmenkollen Ski arena, Viking Ship Museum and many famous historical, fine art and architecture museums. Oslo is an excellent shopping center.
The Flam Railways is the most spectacular attraction of Norway taking you in an incredible voyage from Myrdal to Flam. The 20-km long world’s steepest rail journey takes you through swaths amidst wildest greenery, cascades of waterfall pouring deep down from mountain slopes.
Rest in the Flam Valley and visit the Naeroyfjord, UNESCO-declared world heritage spot. Experience Europe’s narrowest fjord and venture the place by the kayak or boat ride from Aurlands fjord or trek up in the hills.
The E16 route from Aurlands takes you to Stalheim. The 1.5 km road on the route is called Stalheimskleiva and famous for the steep and sharp thirteen hairpin bends that offer excellent scenic view.
The next thing you must not miss is the Bergen railways. Located in highest altitude in Europe and challenged by harsh climatic conditions, Bergen railways is a memorable experience.
