Plan unforgettable holidays to Norway
The capital city of Norway, Oslo is a modern metropolis situated on the northernmost end of Oslofjord. Visitors can explore a variety of attractions, including the Viking Ship Museum, the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History, the National Gallery and the National Opera and Ballet. For those interested in skiing while on holidays in Oslo, the Holmenkollen Ski Museum and Tower is an excellent choice. Not only can you learn about one of the country's national sports, but you can also see the stunning view from the top of the artificial ski slope. If you're visiting on an Oslo holiday, the Akershus Fortress is another popular choice for those interested in learning more about the history and culture of Norway. There have been various structures on the site since 1300 and over the years, it has served as one of the city's main defences, as well as a royal residence.
This stunning port city on the western coast, Stavanger is another favourite destination for those on holidays to Norway. It is the home of the oldest cathedral in the country - Domkirken - and has a long history that goes back to the Viking age. However, visitors will note that most of the city is very modern, as it gained popularity during the early 20th century with the beginning of offshore oil drilling - something you can learn more about at the Norwegian Petroleum Museum. A walk along the waterfront will afford spectacular views of the city, while the most amazing views are to be had from the top of Pulpit Rock. Alternatively, why not take aboat tour of the harbour?
A European Capital of Culture, Bergen is Norway's second largest city and a favourite destination for those on Quest for Adventure holidays. Surrounded by mountains and fjords, it's a beautiful place, offering plenty for holidaymakers who want to enjoy the great outdoors. The Floibanen funicular railroad is one of the city's most popular attractions, taking visitors to the top of Mount Floyen. This short journey takes you along an 850 m route, climbs 300 m and passes through some beautiful forest before arriving at its destination. Be sure to take some time to wander the narrow old streets of the city and to enjoy the colourful wooden buildings that line the Hanseatic Wharf.
