Beautiful Places in Norway

Want to explore some of the most beautiful places in Norway? Norway is one of the most breathtakingly beautiful countries in the world!  Yes, this is my opinion, but if you disagree, you are wrong (LOL).  After looking at these pictures, how can anyone argue?  Norway features: cliffs, fjords, villages, fields of flowers, northern lights, and colorful cities on the water all in one… all this beauty, are you kidding me?!

The problem I have always had with Norway is that you need to spend so much time there to be able to see all the sights.  They are far apart and can be very expensive to get to.  I recently discovered a great way to see a lot of the sights is on a Norwegian cruise.  By seeing the country via boat, you can get to parts of Norway that otherwise might be quite difficult and very time consuming to travel to. I mean, who doesn’t like going to bed and waking up in a whole new magical destination?!  My husband and I just found an 8 day Norwegian cruise for $350 per person, and are thinking we might not be able to pass it up!

Note – I added some of my favorite travel products you guys can check out below.  I have become especially obsessed with the MIRA water bottle.  This is no ordinary water bottle; it keeps your liquids cold for up to 24 hours and hot for up to 12 hours! (seriously, it’s amazing)  

It is the exact same thing as the “Hydro Flask” water bottle but less than half of the cost!  I’ve been wanting Hydro Flask  for a while, but couldn’t bring myself to pay $45 for a water bottle, so I was excited when I found the MIRA, and especially excited when it worked (if you don’t believe me, read the reviews).  

The selfie stick tripod is another one of my best purchases ever.  It has a remote so you will have complete freedom when traveling to take as many photos as you want with everyone in them.  It can also take vertical or landscape photos which was why I ultimately ended up going with this one.  None of the other mini tripods I could find had that option.

  1. I agree with you, Norway is amazingly beautiful, it’s my favorite country in Europe! I love the fjords, the combination of water and mountains, the charming villages… I’ve been there in summer and winter and they’re both special, beautiful in different ways. And your photos are indeed stunning :)

    • Thank you so much! Norway is so hard to beat when it comes to beauty, for all the reasons you mentioned Laia. That’s awesome you have been there during both seasons!

  2. Our son Jimmy is in Norway right now, heading to Flam, then Tromso next. Living vicariously through him, and your perfect timed post as well. :D

  3. That is awesome Terri! I had to look up Tromso, never heard of it until now. It looks incredible! I totally get living vicariously through someones travels as well. My husband is off to Hong Kong and Thailand without me next week. :( Thank goodness I can follow along on snapchat! Haha.

    • Haha, I totally get that! Sounds like you love visiting the lesser explored parts of the world. I am kind of the same way. Not sure I have the guts to visit Iran though. When are you planning on going?!

  4. These photos are insane!!! Clearly, Norway should be THE destination for nature lovers and photography enthusiasts. It always amazes me how beautiful Earth is and I can’t believe that so much beauty can be found in one country! :)

    • Ha, YES! It most definitely should be THE destination for nature lovers and photographers. Isn’t it just so beautiful?

  5. Could you please tell me where you found that low fjord cruise price, as everything I find is at least double that. We’ll be in Norway this November.
    Thanks!

  6. Hi Sabrina, as frequent visitor of Norway I might give you a little tip for an extensive view of Norway. My wife went to Bergen by car (our own) and got on board of the Hurtigruten coastal ferry. At the end of its regular route we got of in Kirkenes (near the Russian border) and drove back via the coastal highway. Stayed in huts and had plenty of time (i.e. three weeks) to see most of the sites you show pictures of. We went back by ferry to Denmark and drove home through Germany. Alternatively one can also fly into Bergen, take the Hurtigruten to Kirkenes and drive a rental car to Bergen.
    Thanks for your story on Norway!

    • It’s so good to hear that you were able to see so much in 3 weeks! Maybe we will consider renting a car on our trip. Sounds like you had an amazing trip and thanks so much for the tips!!
