Norway

Norway, found on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe, is undoubtedly one of the worlds’ most beautiful countries. Long and narrow, it has a lengthy coastline with many inlets. There are four main regions, each with distinctly different features - the southeast, southwest, central and northern regions.

The marvellous Norwegian landscape was carved out by an enormous glacier (4km thick), which covered the region during the last ice age. Today, Norway is perhaps best known for it’s high standards of living and dramatic fjords (coastal inlets with steep land on three sides), leading National Geographic to proclaim it as the ‘best unspoiled travel destination in the world’. One of Europe's most mountainous countries; it is dominated by the many ranges of the Scandinavian Mountains.
