Norway is a strikingly rugged combination of mountains, fjords and glaciers that creates a dramatic landscape stretching across the entire country. Ideal for outdoor adventure with truly breathtaking scenery, Norway boasts some of the most picturesque express boat, ferry and train excursions imaginable. Norway’s cities also beckon travelers indoors to shop, dine and enjoy the arts. Admire the cultural traditions, elaborate folk costumes and fine craftsmanship proudly displayed. While traveling, dine on sumptuous smorgasbords that include an array of breads and marinated herring, fresh salmon, shrimp, lingon and cloud berries.
