Norway’s Natural Beauty
The scenery in Norway is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Films, photos, videos – just do not do it justice. We were driving along the road absolutely gawking, mouths agape at how extraordinarily beautiful it was. It took us so much longer to drive anywhere – partly because of the wiggly, windy roads and partly because we had to keep stopping to take in the beauty.
I’ve seen some really incredible sites over the last 25 years but nothing prepared me for how stunning it was going to be. I honestly recommend going for the view alone.
My favourite things to see whilst we were there were:
- The Fjords – the most beautiful one I visited was Sognefjord but Hardangerfjord and Lysefjord are also rather lovely.
- Waterfalls – going around May/June when the cold spring is fading and the start of summer is melting the glaciers. This makes spectacular waterfalls everywhere you go and where we were high enough up we were able to drink the water
- The mountains and high points. There are few things as wonderful as the feeling of seeing the land fall before you, taking a hike up a mountain or a fjord is 100% worth the time and effort
