After exploring Oslo’s 17th-century Quadrangle district and medieval Akershus Castle, explore Norway by train. Head west to Bergen’s waterfront wooden houses, see Gothic cathedrals in north-western Trondheim and discover the old town and harbour in Stavanger, Norway’s south-western oil headquarters.
Take the train through Norway’s scenic countryside. Pass pretty pine forests aboard the comfortable Flåm Railway, sail around fjords or base-jump or paraglide off Norway’s dramatic cliffs. In the Arctic Nordkapp, experience the midnight summer sun and go skiing in Trysil.
Bring back a lusekofte knitted jumper or a snowflake-print hat, indulge in luxury plates from Porsgrund Porcelain, suppliers of china to the Norwegian royals, or a glass bowl from Hadeland. Cheese connoisseurs will love Norway’s specialty cheese gammelost.
Dine on Norwegian game like elk or reindeer and use Norway’s train network to explore its gastronomy. Try dried cod, tørrfisk in the north, smoked lamb’s head (smalahove) in the west and get adventurous with raksfisk (fermented trout).
Challenge your vertigo at the Aurland Lookout, a wooden pier hanging off Aurlandsfjord’s high cliffs. Seemingly death-defying, this architectural illusion features protective glass between you and the drop below.
