Back in March I visited Oslo, the capital of Norway. It was a pricey adventure, but a very unique one. I don’t think I’ll visit a city like it ever again, because you don’t see many places with frozen harbours.
Norway prides itself on its natural beauty. It’s their number one tourist attraction. The epic mountain ranges, fjords of the western coast and the Northern Lights are just a few to tempt you. Even so close to the city, you can admire rolling hills of pine trees, snow capped when the biting winter rolls around.
Viking history is alive and well here. Norway was very much the heart of Viking endeavours during their years of exploring and pillaging, having conquered a lot of Britain and travelled as far afield as North America. The Viking Ship Museum in Oslo has intact examples of ships excavated from around Norway, allowing you to appreciate the intricate detail and workmanship these vessels represent.
