Nature attractions
There are mountains plunging into the sea from hundreds of metres, fjords, tall mountain peaks, northern lights and midnight sun.
The mountainous regions abound with broad plateaus and magnificent peaks. The fjords that were formed when the glaciers receded are unique in the world.

Vast forested areas are found in Eastern Norway and in Trøndelag, whereas long beaches stretch along the southern and northernmost coasts.

Norway is a country of endless rivers and powerful waterfalls which have contributed to making the country known abroad.

Twenty-one national parks provide nature lovers the opportunity to enjoy untouched nature. Norway's glaciers stretch out their white caps across mountain tops, especially towards the west and northern areas of the country.

For the lover of animal wildlife, there are of course different ENGINEs of photo safaris, including moose safaris, musk ox, whale, beaver, and eagle safaris. As to Norway's rich birdlife this makes the country a good place for birdwatching.
