Norway is a beautiful country in Europe rich with spectacular landscapes, magnificent nature, beautiful buildings with stunning architecture and aesthetic waterfalls. It will not be wrong to say that God has taken special efforts in embedding this country with wonders of nature. There are a lot of reasons why Norway is a once in a lifetime destination with many prodigies of nature and aesthetic views exclusive to this country, a few of which have been listed here.
1) No sunset in summers and no sunrise in winters! There is 24 hours of visible sun in summers and absolutely no sun in the winters. Summers can be really great to visit this beautiful country as it will leave you with a lot of time to visit many of the tourist attractions. It is probably the best place for summer activities like hiking, fishing, biking, rafting and a lot more. Winters too can be really cozy and comfortable here as you can rejoice with warm fire enjoying your coffee under the magical lights in the sky. Needless to say, Norway is THE place for winter activities. Imagine sledding in the snow when your engine is nothing but a pack of 6 dogs that will run as fast as possible to give you that acute adrenaline rush in your body. Also, it is regarded as the birthplace of skiing.
2) The Mesmerizing Northern Lights.
Norway is considered as the best place to see the magic of these spellbinding northern lights. Also known as aurora lights, these lights are more persistent in late autumn and winters. The purple, green and even red color of the aurora will surely take your breath away.
3) It is one of the happiest countries. According to the World Happiness Report in 2013, Norway is the second happiest place which includes factors like life expectancy, social support and freedom. Now, who wouldn’t like to visit a place with such a happy aura around?
4) The picturesque Fjords of Norway. These fairy-tale like places look nothing like real and make you feel as if you are in a land of fantasies. The allure of these narrow and steep cliffs which are actually created by the glacial erosion will compel you to visit this paradise again and again. Fjords like Nærøyfjord and Geirangerfjord have their names in the World Heritage List making them a must visit.
5) Interesting History of Norway. Widely known for their efficient trading and fierceness, the Vikings once travelled through the lakes and the land of Norway which will turn 1,020 years old in 2017. Being the oldest major city of Norway, Trondheim is a place of great historical importance and has also been its capital from the year 997 to 1217. It has the second largest church in the Northern Europe- the stunning Nidaros Cathedral which will surely leave you awe struck with its divine beauty and brilliant architecture.
Words can be never enough to describe the charm and charisma of this heavenly place. There is more land than you can cover by foot and more water than you can ever explore by a boat. The natural beauty of this place remains unparalleled with the rest of the world. There is, in no way a reason why anybody would miss a chance to visit this phenomenal place.
