It’s known as the Land of the Midnight Sun, a place where the fjords dazzle and the villages charm, and it’s truly as spectacular as it sounds.

With such a tiny population and a modest culture, Norway can be easy to forget. But with scenery that sparkles, this northern European getaway is a delight to all who visit. Take the views from Mt Aksla, a panorama of grand Alps dusted with snow. Then there’s the town of Geiranger, resting in the clutches of an emerald fjord. Arts and culture thrive in Bergen, where medieval houses still stand and modern performers light up the nights.
