Norway is the land of divine beauty that takes you one step closer to nature. Norway has always been known for its scenic beauty of Fjords, mountains and glaciers. Fjords are carved out by the slow movement of glaciers and frequently end up being much deeper than people realize. It offers plenty to visitors right from mountain skiing, a voyage in the Fjords and hiking. A long strip of sea on a beautiful sunny afternoon is considered a perfect day for tourists. Fjords of Norway are series of landscape mountain that attracts hikers in abundance. Bergen is the perfect starting-point to explore the great fjords
of the western coast of Norway, in particular The Sognefjord and The Hardangerford with its rich history
Sognefjord, for example, stretches down into the earth more than 4,000 feet below sea level. Fjords are also notable for having strong tidal currents caused by the slight rise that exists at their entrances. The Saltstraumen fjord of Norway actually has the strongest tidal current in the world.
The best time to visit this place is from May till September. You might have heard that Norwegians get out and enjoys the sun the minute it appears. Early April when
the snow is still on the ground and the sun comes out between the clouds, Norwegians are already on the Go with cozy clothes and scarfs and hot coffee sitting outside.
Coffee…………..If you enjoy it as much as I do Norway is a good place for you In coffee shops in Norway, you will have a lot of options. Its not only the regular black coffee, the latte and the cappuchino available for you. there are syrup available in different flavor, caramel, hazelnut and vanilla are the most common once, including mocha and may more………………ummmmm Norway is expensive to live in.
Travelers to Norway are having a hard time in knowing how much money to bring. If you go to Norway for a holiday, you can’t spend your meals out. As you are used to having your dinner and lunch out, but in Norway this is TOO expensive.
