Norway is a ruggedly beautiful country of mountains, fjords and glaciers. The ‘Land of the Midnight Sun’ has delightfully long summer days, unspoiled fishing villages and rich historic sites that include Viking ships and medieval stave churches. Norway’s varied geography surprises many visitors who imagine the country as a frozen monolith. On the contrary, the temperate south includes rolling farmlands, enchanted forests and sunny beaches as well as the dramatic Western Fjords. North of the Arctic Circle, the population thins, the horizons grow wider and the temperature dips. It’s no wonder that Norway prizes its stunning natural wonders and retains a robust frontier character unusual in Europe. From north to south the length of the country is almost 2000 kilometers. November through March is the absolute peak season for Northern Lights viewing because the nights are longest, but a visit anytime between September and March should give you a good chance to see them, with March offering the best chance of clear skies.SHOW LESS
