If you were to fold Norway down the way from its southern tip the North Cape would fall somewhere between Rome and Naples. The most southern, western, northern and eastern points in Norway, despite the long land borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia, all lie on the sea. Better than that even is that the east of Finnmark shares a line of longitude with Istanbul, while the west coast in Bergen shares one with Marseille. If you travel from Norway's south coast to the arctic circle, you have to travel all the way to Kirkenes and then the same distance again. If you'd like to set off along the whole coastline, including fjords and islands, you should plan time and luggage for around 57,000 kilometres of travel.
Norway's exoticism comes from its geographical and topographical profile, from its fascinating nature, which only seems to come in XXL format. The longest and deepest fjord in Europe, Sognefjord, or the largest plateau on the continent, the Hardangervidda. The endless summer days under the midnight sun and the magic of the dancing Northern Lights on the northern winter sky.
The fact that you immediately feel at ease in this completely different "world" is also down to Norwegian society. An environment that is focused on the future but glorifies the past with fervour . Mental gymnastics aren't necessary to understand "Sentrum", "Tradisjon" or "Velkommen". There is already a sense of familiarity when you arrive: If you don't opt for anonymous air travel and instead take one of the ferries through the Kattegat or across the Skagerrak, you will experience an atmostpheric overture: The first signs of land point towards prosperity and civic care: well maintained holiday homes in bright colours; marinas round every corner and in every bay; in the
busy harbour quarters of Oslo, Larvik, Langesund, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen, it's all about the incoming ferries. The signs towards the car exit are as pleasant as the considerate driving. Let the journey to your "hut", the holiday home, begin:
Norwegians love their great nature and freedom beyond all measure. It's no wonder that holidaying in your own holiday home is more than a way of living – it's a way of life. In the most beautiful locations on the banks of the fjords, on the open sea or in the vast mountains, there are several hundred thousand of the most beautiful holiday homes, which the Norwegians, very modestly, call "hytte", a hut. Most are located just a few steps from a hiking trail, a cross-country skiing trail or their own jetty. The main thing is that you are very quickly immersed in nature. The Norwegian magic formula for activities and relaxation in nature is called "friluftsliv", which more or less means life in fresh air. And it is contagious, we promise.
Winter offers up varied and challenging skiing for adults and children, beginners or advanced skiers alike. Even the historical sights and cultural events that have long stood in the shadow of experiences in nature are now attractions for many tourists.
Norway has so much to offer tourists all year round that you may be left wishing you had more time to explore everything.
Norway is known for its impressive fjords, deep canyons that project up to 200 km inland. The largest fjords in Norway are Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Nordfjord. The ice age left its mark here . On the banks of the fjords, impressive mountain chains tower into the heavens. Holiday homes in this location have views that you can only dream of. A holiday in the fjords is certainly an unforgettable experience. Even UNESCO have certified the unique natural beauty of Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord. Seeing fjords on holiday in Norway, exploring them, walking along their banks and visiting the tiny places at the end of many fjords is almost imperative when on holiday in Norway.
You could say that Norway is unique from head to toe and full of places that anyone would love to visit at least once. In any travel guide, you can learn all about the absolute highlights, such as Geirangerfjord, Trolltunga, Preikestolen, cities like Bergen and Trondheim, Lofoten and, of course, North Cape. We have a few extra special Norway holiday tips:
• Among Norway's fjords, you can visit Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, take a mini-cruise on the ferry from Gudvangen to Kaupanger and take in the summit panorama from Moldes' own mountain.
• In South and East Norway, the Maihaugen open-air museum is certainly worth a visit. You don't want to miss the Peer Gynt Festival in Vinstra either if you are interested in culture, and visit the Forest and Hunting Museum in Elversum if you are a fan of nature.
• In Central and Northern Norway, you can take a mine tour in Røros, travel along Coastal Route 17 and take the cable car in Tromsø up the local mountain to take in the panoramic views across the polar region. And you wouldn't want to miss out on going on a Red King Crab safari either, do you?

In spring, the country springs to life again and the days quickly get much longer. While the plants are blooming in the south, it can still be wintry and cold in the north . Nevertheless, the light entices the inhabitants and visitors back out into nature. In Summer, the sun hardly sets, especially in the North, where there is no sunset for weeks at a time. The weather in Norway at this time of year is mild, warm and comparatively dry. In autumn, the huge forested areas plunge into vibrant colours, the days get shorter again, mushrooms and berries are ready for harvest and it's a great season for lots of outdoor activities, such as hiking. In winter, the weather in Norway brings with it a magical winter wonderland. Many regions can rely on snow, so there are lots of opportunities to take part in winter sports in Norway. In the north, there are a few weeks where the sun doesn't come up, which gives you a good chance of setting your eyes on the Northern Lights . A holiday home break in Norway is worth it at any time of the year, since every season offers something special. Take a look at the weather in Norway here !

Many Norwegian holiday homes are located on small islands, but regardless of where a house is located, the easiest way to reach the holiday home will often be to go by the ferry. Consequently it is a good idea to check the various ferry possibilities. On VisitNorway you will find a list of all the ferries in Norway.
In some cities such as Oslo and Bergen a toll fee must be paid when entering/leaving the city. There are also many rather small roads privately administrated in Norway. Also here you will have to pay.
