Nature is truly enticing in Norway. My visit to Norway was so close to nature that I had the best
experience of my life travelling long distances in Norway and experiencing Norway in a new whole
My hopping journeys in Norway
My travel was in the Western part of Norway hopping on a bus from fjords to Sunmore and the subway
to Oslo. Crossing the fjords from Alesund to Strand during the winter was a great experience. It
gave the pleasure to look down from the top of the mountain, all the way down to the fjords. On the
way, on a ferry, I was mesmerized by nature’s gift to Norway.
Norway takes pride in its subway to Oslo. The wide area of woodlands was fantastic to look at on the
journey in a subway to Oslo. No other area of Europe has such a vast land of woodlands.
My most memorable journey was the bike ride down the Flam village valley. I would say this indeed
should be the top 10 things you should do in Norway. It was an action-packed tour and for an
adventure junkie cum nature lover nothing was better than this.
The Norway fjords are green, peaceful and powerful. The bicycle tour at Petra to see the fjords was
my top favourite activity. It was a 20 kilometres journey, which was mostly downhill. It was so much
fun being so close to nature and discovering its intricate details. I even got to meet goats grazing on
the field, this experience is never possible in an urban setting. The goats were super-friendly, maybe
because the Norwegians feed them so well. Some cows can also be discovered here and some
alpacas in Luster.
They even serve superb milk and cheese from the local dairy farms which are so fresh and tasty, that
you would forget the tinned milk and packaged cheese from the supermarkets.
I also biked down to the fjord in a farm called Otternes where I took a guided historic tour and relished
the food experience of the locals. The most authentic touch of Norway can be felt here away from
the popular bust areas of the Flam village.
My last part of the Norway tour was a short cruise to discover the fjords. This adventurous voyage is
a must in Norway. The Viking lore, the villages, the bustling markets, the sparkling cruises, I could
see all of Norway in a nutshell in the short cruise. The cruise takes you through the most beautiful
journey to the whole of /Norway covering Bergen, Geiranger Fjord, Alesund, Tromso, Kirkenes, North Cape and the Arctic capital of Tromso, Kirnes followed by the capital Oslo Travel to Norway if you really wish to enjoy the nature in a railway or take a drive yourself with a guided tour.
The experience would be worth a lifetime. The picturesque views will be etched to the memory forever. The fresh milk and cheese flavours still bring water to my mouth.
