Norway (Norwegian: Norge or Noreg) is the westernmost, northernmost — and surprisingly also the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Among the Nordic countries only Finland stretches slightly further east. Norway is known for the complex and deep fjords along its west coast, as well as the midnight sun and Northern Lights.

The overall impression of Norway is a country with ample space and unusually rugged landscape. While famous for its great fjords along the Atlantic, the interior also has great valleys, wide forests and fjord-like lakes. Norway is one of the most mountainous countries in Europe. Water in all varieties is perhaps what Norway is most characterised for: the endless coastline, the great fjords, countless waterfalls, crystal rivers, lovely lakes and numerous glaciers.

Although the great outdoors is Norway's number one attraction, there are also many interesting and lively cities like Oslo and Bergen. Man-made attractions include Norway's cultural heritage as well as modern structures and architecture - often found in cities but also in terms of impressive engineering in remote corners.


Cities
1 Oslo – the capital and largest city of Norway, with museums of national importance, a beautiful setting and lively nightlife and cultural scene.
2 Bergen – Once the capital of Norway, old Hanseatic trading centre with a rich culture and dramatic scenery, Norway's second largest city. Wonderfully cute wooden buildings, a magnificent mountain setting, varied nightlife and lots of atmosphere. This is your gateway to the western fjords. The city has been dubbed "the rainiest city in Europe" with an average of 250 days of rainfall a year. Bring an umbrella.
3 Bodø Bodø (town) on Wikipedia – The gateway to the magnificent Lofoten islands. And the place of Saltstraumen, the worlds strongest maelstrom.
4 Drammen – Once known as industrial and grimy, but refurbishment has made Drammen an enjoyable side trip from Oslo.
5 Fredrikstad – A magnificent old town stands out from the rest of the rather nondescript city. Brilliant as a day trip from Oslo.
6 Kristiansand – The jolly capital of the South. Best known for the family attraction Kristiansand zoo and amusement park and as Norway's "cool riviera".
7 Stavanger – The fourth largest city, and the third largest urban area. Commercially important due to the oil business. The wooden, cobbled central area is one of the most charming places in Norway. Home to one of Norway's medieval cathedrals, you can also visit Iron Age homes and stone age caves. Stavanger is where Erik the Red was born.
8 Tromsø – The largest city in northern Norway. Offers a perfect spot for the Northern Lights or the Midnight Sun and plenty of other excursions while in between enjoying the tranquil mountainous vistas.
9 Trondheim – Famous for its stunning cathedral (Nidarosdomen). Wonderful riverside wharfs, wooden buildings and the best student nightlife in Norway give beautiful, leafy Trondheim its charm.
