Norway tour is the world’s eighth largest coastlines and a country which bends nature and culture perfectly. The decision to visit Norway was the best decision as I got to explore the best of nature and culture. It was a tour full of fun activities, mesmerising sightseeing, and unique adventures. It was indeed a unique experience.
Norway tour, an unforgettable journey
The first visit was to the blue Hardangerfjord which is located in the southern region of Bergen. It is a mountain plateau, between the main fjord and the Sorjford plateau. It was mesmerising to view the spectacular Voringfopss waterfalls from the dramatic village Eidfjord.
The majestic Sognefjord in the North region of Bergen. The famous railway, a sideline off the main Bergen line takes you down to the fantastic Flam village.
The Hurtigruten cruise along the Norwegian cruise was the highlight of the tour to Norway. It was mesmerising to view the glittering channels of water, the snow-covered peaks and scenic glacier fields. The cruise gives you Norway tour in a nutshell.
The next visit was tiring and involved long journeys but it was a unique experience of Norway. It involves a coach travel, a boat and three train journeys. The day started at Bergen railways to the Voss region. From Voss the journey to old Bergen Oslo road was spectacular. After the stoppage at Gudvagen, a boat awaits you more colourful nature view. It takes you through the flowing water to the narrowest fjords in Norway and down to the Flam village. This is almost an hour’s travel of serenity and peace. The journey ends with an express train back to Bergen.
The adventure of the Norway tour was an opportunity to cycle in Hardangerfjord. The 89 km cycling route was really adventurous and unique as it brings you too close to nature passing the fjords, mountains, and waterfalls from close.
Voss was the highlight of adventure sports like skydiving, water rafting and kayaking. It got my adventure junkie in me get going and adrenaline pumping high.
I also got to experience the world most powerful whirlpool at Saltstraumen. It is rare to get a chance to visit the strongest tidal current in the world and remind yourself that how powerful nature can be.
The best part was that a visit to Norway in the month of May have. It gave me a feeling of a 17th-century fairy tale too. May 17th is Norway’s National day, I was lucky to experience the grand celebrations. It was unbelievable to view the Norwegians donning their folk costumes and dancing their heart out. It really looked like the pages of the 17th-century fairy tale. The lavish champagne breakfast with marching parades in the mornings adds a cherry to the celebration.
Cruise the country in the famous fjords cruise, or cycle through nature and enjoy the breath-taking panoramic nature view. Dive into the adventurous extreme sports activities like rafting, kayaking or skydiving, you have it all at Norway. Eating and dining too is a pleasure in Norway. It is a must for every nature lover or an adventure junkie.
