Norway Travel Guide

We visited Norway just twice and we already want to go back. The first time was in summer when we did a road trip through some of Norway’s most beautiful fjords and charming towns. The second time was just a few months later, in winter, when I visited Tromsø in Northern Norway to experience some of the incredible winter activities like dog sledding, northern lights, and more.

Here you can find all the blog posts from our trips to Norway. They are filled with travel inspiration and lots of practical tips to help you plan your own unforgettable trip to Norway.

Whether you are visiting Norway with family or alone, in summer or in winter – these guides should be a good starting point in deciding where to go, best places to see, and best activities not to miss.

This is by no means a complete guide to Norway. It’s such a big country with so much more to see and do, and we just scratched the surface. But if you are visiting Norway for the first time then this is a good place to start. See below!

TIP: Join our Facebook Group for Iceland and Scandinavia Travel. We have lots of members who know the region quite well and should be able to help you with the practical side of planning a trip to Norway and other Nordic Countries.
