With a rugged countryside of mountains, fjords, and glaciers, travel in Norway is filled with natural wonders. Part of its allure is its rich history and seafaring culture that reaches back to the days of the Vikings who inhabited Norway throughout the 9th century. Known as the ‘Land of the Midnight Sun,’ you can explore even longer with its endless summer days. Some of the best ways to tour Norway is to explore by bike, boat, car, skis, or even by husky-drawn sled.
