Norway: The Land of Fjords I
heading (paragraph): States
Norway and Sweden are countries both situated on the Scandinavian peninsula giving it unique features. The greatest lure are western coast fjords. Wild nature is almost beyond believe – deep woods, thousands of lakes, mountains and glaciers, and beautiful vistas. For this tourists go here in increasing numbers every year.
Take a glimpse into the wild northern nature with us.
Sweden and Norway are Nordic countries situated on the Scandinavian peninsula which gives the country its cahracteristic features. The main natural attraction in the country are fjords cutting deep into the mainland. There are many such fjords in Norway. Areas without water are regions where many lakes are located. Or you can stumble upon some beautiful hilly area, plateau, deep forests or mountain ridge with a glacier. Nature is not the only thing worth of visiting. The two largest cities too – Oslo and bergen. The north of the country tourists usually avoid. If you seek to be on some remote place alone this would be the best choice.
Many people know Troll tongue. This vista is nothing but world-famous and is considered among the most beautiful vistas on the face of the earth. So naturally we did want to see it with our own eyes. Even though we landed in Bergen, we rented a car so in three hours of ride we reached the beginning of the trail. Tyssendal village is essential place on the trail to Troll tongue.
I suppose that had you travelled to Norway by plane and you intend to see the fjords than you would probably lan dat Bergen airport (about 25 minutes away from downtown). I am not peculiarly interested in large cities still I would recommend you to spend there some quality time.
Another stop on our journey to the north along the eastern coast of Sorfjord coastline is Lofthus – a small village with well known apple orchards. Lofthus is visited by tourists thanks to a steep tourist trail. It goes uphill onto a plateau of Hardangervidda national park. It is a plain area of immense vastness.
Scandinavia is an annual destination for many travellers, who like rugged landscape, untouched landscape and water with an abundance of fish. Our journey, however, will gradually lead to the Far North, at the very edge of Europe, which already lies behind the Arctic Circle.
