Though a 1000-year old city, it flaunts a modernist architecture. The city fairly simple to navigate and one can just pick a few maps and guides and set out on a self-guided tour. Some of the major attractions include the Akershus Fortress, the national theatre, Royal palace, Oslo Cathedral, Nobel Peace Centre, Frogner Park, amongst others.
This is the view of the Bergen city from the Floyen mountain. It is a beautiful city with amazing fjords and definitely worth a visit if you are planning to go to Norway.
Tromso- The City of Northern Lights and also know as the Paris of Norway! A small lovely town islandwhere you cannot just ever get bored. The city has so much to offer whether its summer or winter, day or night. I went for the Aurora Chase tours for 3 consecutive evenings and on my last visit, it was the first time I saw the Northern Lights- The Aurora Borealis with my own eyes which I had always seen in photos! The feeling is just inexpressive. Thanks to Northern Shots Arctic Guide Services & Green Fox Guiding for offering us an unforgettable Aurora chase experience. I also took a dog sled ride and visited a husky farm where there are more than 300 husky dogs and some pups as well. Tromso Villmarksssenter is the best to have your husky sleds. Also, if you want to enjoy the stunning views of the whole town just take the cable car all the way up and you can see a spectacular view!
Lillehammer is the perfect place to do nothing. Apart from a museum and the site of the 1994 winter Olympics, there's nothing to see and yet, so much to see. Walk around and you will find quaint cobbled streets, a church with a graveyard, a moose that has walked into a pub, and a bank with a cow painted on the outside. Sit in a garden and read a book, and its easy to lose track of how much time you spend in Lillehammer.
6. Hamnøy, Norway
Kinsarvik, named after the wild Kinso river which runs through the village, is the starting point for the hike to four stunning waterfalls in Husedalen valley. The first two are approximately half an hour simple hike from the starting point. The next two are a good 4 hours hike away, make sure that you have proper hiking gear before you venture on this trail. Coming back to Kinsavik, visit Hardanger Bestikk, the largest cutlery manufacturing unit in Scandinavia. The family run company organises a free guide tour everyday at 1pm. It give a sneak peak in the culture of the region.
