The amazing nature in Norway

One of the most amazing things about Norway is the nature. The freedom to roam principle allows anyone to travel freely in nature without being concerned with who owns the ground, and even allows anyone to pitch a tent anywhere in nature.

This allows you to experience the pristine nature of Norway in any way you like. There are plenty of opportunities to go on guided tours at the most popular natural tourist attractions, or just grab your backpack and go hiking all by yourself in one of the many national parks.

The nature in Norway ranges from incredible fjords in the west, insane mountains in the north, temperate beaches in the south, to humongous forest areas in the east. There’s something for everyone in Norway, no matter if you prefer relaxed nature experiences near major cities, or want to go on multiple day hikes in places like Jotunheimen.
