The westernmost country on northern Europe's Scandinavian Peninsula, Norway is bordered by Sweden, Finland and Russia. Universally-recognised as one of the most scenic countries on the planet, Norway's national character is deeply imbued with a profound, enduring love of nature. For good reasons: much of the country is spectacular, with magnificent mountains, plunging waterfalls and scenic fjords, but even some of Norway's cities - including Bergen, Trondheim, Stavanger and Tromsø - also are places of great beauty.
Norway and its people embrace nature. Stunning national parks showcase steep-sided valleys, mountain lakes and unbelievable views while protecting the environment. Breathtaking, dramatic fjords, sparsely populated wilderness, glistening glaciers, majestic mountains and a rich cultural history combine with skiing, rock-climbing and hiking. All of this is Norway, the land of the midnight sun.

Norway has four major cities, each offering its own distinct appeal: Oslo, Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim. Oslo, the country's capital, boasts world-class museums, top-notch restaurants and a lively nightlife. It's a perfect size for exploring on foot. Beautiful Bergen, surrounded by hills and fjords, features a UNESCO World Heritage Site, museums and charming hillside houses. Picturesque Stavanger is a vibrant city that's home to many museums and a pretty harbour. Trondheim, the country's first capital, is a lovely city with a long history and many good restaurants and cafés. Spectacular but smaller Tromsø, far north of the Arctic Circle and set amidst snow-capped peaks, is the Gateway to the Arctic and the jumping-off point for polar expeditions. Direct Flights books cheap flights to Norway and travel packages that also include discount accommodation in Norway, car hire and travel insurance at competitive rates.
Don't just spend time in Norway's cities, because this is a country where the countryside is full of natural wonders. The Jotunheimen National Park features high peaks and glaciers, ravine-like valleys, deep lakes and stunning waterfalls, while the cliffs of the Geirangerfjorden, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, form a beautiful archetypal fjord. Norway offers even more - ancient stave churches, relics from the colourful Viking past, friendly people, and above the Arctic Circle, a sun that never rises in winter and never sets in summer.
