Fjord Norway, Skiing, Vikings, Lofoten, northern lights, Hurtigruten, cities - and MoreNorway is the western part of Scandinavia, with a small population (less than 5 million) and many great places to visit, whether you want fjords, mountains and skiing or culture, history and lovely cities.
Oslo is the capital with many good museums; Bergen is surrounded by mountains, is the southern end of the Hurtigruten Norwegian Coastal Voyage and has the Bryggen world heritage site; Stavanger is the small city with big city restaurants, nightlife and facilities plus top attractions in and around the city; Kristiansand is the warm popular capital of the southern sørlandet region; Trondheim is the big university town and Tromsø is the friendly and most northerly city. All the cities are built beside the sea, with boats a major feature of life. Norway has good travel links with England and the UK and there are several good places to start exploring.
It is just an hour or so flight time from Newcastle and Aberdeen, and two hours from London. The Newcastle to Norway ferry no longer exists - you need to go via Holland or Denmark (see latest news on this - December 2013)
