Places to Visit in Norway
Let our experts help you discover a genuine treasure trove of cities and places to visit in Norway. Oslo has a booming contemporary art scene, some of which is highlighted at Vigeland Sculpture park where you can meander among over 200 bronze and granite statues.
Bergen is a cultural hub, this pretty harbour city offers history, superb shopping, some excellent hiking and panoramic views from the Fløibanen funicular and Mount Ulriken cable car (remember to back your umbrella it does like to rain here). Added to Ålesund’s idiosyncratic style are Neoclassical and Gothic façades, the complete ensemble is a delight to wander around and there are some fantastic cafes and restaurants to dip in and out of while you do so. Ålesund is a charming waterfront city and a gateway to the majestic fjords beyond; explore the fjords by boat, by car or indeed on foot - we would suggest you try all three in order to enjoy the scenery from all angles! And you can expect the food you'll need to keep you going to be utterly fantastic.
