Land of the Northern Lights
Located at the northernmost tip of continental Europe, Northern Norway is a place where civilizations meet, the sun shines at midnight, and auroras paint the skies. Learn about the local culture, a mosaic of Sami, Norwegian, Finnish, and Russian influences, and see the historical attractions that stretch from prehistory to the Cold War era. Despite their modest size, the region’s cities are vibrant places with many unique architectural features and an exciting nightlife. Outside the cities, you'll find a vast area of pristine nature with mountains, fjords, lakes, and rivers. Here you can take part in a number of outdoor activities, from golfing and rock climbing in the summer, to dog sledding and skiing in the winter. Complete your Arctic vacation by tasting the local specialties, including fresh dairy products and seafood, whale and reindeer meat, and seagull eggs followed by home-brewed beer.
