Constantly ranked as one of the ‘happiest’ countries in the world, Norway is one of those picturesque and delicately beautiful countries you read about in old romance novels. Though ‘delicate’ is a term one might want to use cautiously here. Norway is known for its wilderness and surreal landscape. If you enjoy hikes and long walks surrounded by lush greenery (especially in the short summer months), Norway is a must-visit.

Another phenomenon that makes this place so special is the Aurora Borealis or the Northern Lights. See the skies light up in hues of bright blues, purple and greens as you lie under the starry sky in the winters, adding a touch of magic to your experience.

If you are worried about not being able to converse in Norwegian, rest assured, Norwegians are (mostly) well-versed in English, though we would suggest memorizing the names of a few delicacies so you don’t miss out on the good stuff when you’re there! A few recommendations: Fiskeboller, Svele, Raspeballer, Smalahove, Kjøttkaker and of course Lefse!

With 46 National Parks and more than 1000 Fjords, Norway is also home to ‘Ice Hotels’ in the winters. Curious?
