Holidays to Norway
With shimmering fjords, soaring mountains and just four million people, Norway is a spectacular, tranquil country that offers the chance to witness nature at its most unspoilt. It's not just about the scenery, however; Norway's cities - from northern Tromso, famous for the Aurora Borealis and summer 'white nights', to bustling Oslo and waterfront Bergen - ooze effortless Scandi style, and seafood to die for.
It's not often that I stand around with my mouth open, but drifting up the Hardangerfjord, the third largest fjord on the planet, proved hard to not have my jaw on the floor. The clear water is flanked by vast cliffs which rise sharply hundreds of feet into the air, softened by waterfalls and sleepy villages, huddled at the bottom of the slopes. My trip around Norway has been my favourite; hundreds of spectacular miles, topped off with a seafood feast on Bergen's pretty harbour.
