Despite Norway being one of the most expensive countries in the world, it is also one of the most beautiful too. Many travellers simply disregard this stunning country, because of the cost of living. However if you can squeeze in just a few days to visit, it will definitely be worth it. Norway is famous for its awe inspiring fjords that stem the countries backbone. You should head North out of Oslo to witness the natural beauty of this amazing country, including taking a boat ride through the heavenly fjords to witness just how fantastic these are in person.
Norwegians are so friendly, and nearly everyone speaks fluent English, so you won’t have a problem with language barriers. If you have time, catch a flight up to Tromso, to witness the stunning Northern Lights, however do be mindful, this is only available between certain times a year, as the further North you get the lighter it stays in summer.
