35 Photos of Norway That Will Make You Want To Pack Your Bags Now

35 Photos Of Norway That Will Make You Want To Pack Your Bags Now

 

After only two and a half weeks, Dan and I came to the same conclusion:

Norway is the most beautiful country we have ever visited.

Having traveled to thirty-some-odd countries between the two of us, we feel like that’s saying a lot.

 

The scenery in Norway is dramatic, largely in part because it is a land of fjords; the staggering juxtaposition between the snowy mountains and crystal clear water just never gets old. But the beauty isn’t only there for a single snapshot—it envelops you, extending on for as far as the eye can see. In Norway, you’re completely and totally immersed in the magnificence of nature. At times, it can all be a little bit difficult to believe.

We’ll be sharing more detailed posts about our travels in Norway, including adventure travel guides to the Lofoten Islands, Bergen Region, Pulpit Rock, and more. But before we do so, we wanted to get you excited with a bit of eye candy. We’re fairly certain it will make you want to get on a plane for Norway today.

  1. Wow, Norway looks amazing guys! I’d absolutely love to go, but I’ve heard it’s expensive in comparison to the rest of Europe so I’m exploring elsewhere at the moment 🙂

    • Norway is quite possibly the most beautiful place we’ve ever traveled! Norway is relatively expensive compared to other parts of Europe but there are always ways to travel cheaper. We’ll actually be writing a whole post about how to keep costs down while traveling in Norway so stay tuned 🙂

  2. Beautiful photos as always guys! I have to say a have a weakness for all things Scandinavian and Norway is next on my list. From the photos it looks like it would live up to every expectation!

    • Thanks Becky! We had heard Norway was gorgeous, but I don’t think we were fully prepared for how amazing it really is 😀 I hope you get the chance to see it for yourself!

    • It took about 45 minutes for us to get that close to the edge, but we finally managed to work up the courage :-p Pulpit Rock is a pretty spectacular spot! Best hike we have ever done for sure 😀

  3. You nailed it! Absolutely stunning pictures. I didn’t know Norway was so colorful! I went to Oslo 2 years ago and it was dark and dull. Your photos make me wanna go back there once again and see other places!

    • We visited Oslo as well at the end of our trip and we much preferred the more wild side of Lofoten and the fjords.

  4. Speechless again guys! These pictures almost don’t feel real, they look like a set of a film. My list of places to see is getting endless and I don’t think there is enough time to see EVRYTHING and to go EVERWHERE. Great photography as usual! 🙂

  6. Haha!! I love the amazing photos; The scenery, colors, landscapes, and then at the end, the smiling, hairy, buck-toothed… cow?! I loooove Norway! Scandinavia in general is so beautiful.

    • Thanks Jon! The cow at the end is called a “Highland Cattle.” We were super surprised when we saw him on our hike to the Blue Glacier. It looks like something straight out of Where the Wild Things Are (especially since we found him in the middle of the woods).

    • Definitely bring a good jacket (along with a solid pair of hiking boots) cuz you’ll be wanting to spend all of your time outdoors. 😀

  7. Wow, wow, WOW! I cannot get over the colors in these photos… and the landscapes… looks like something out of a fairytale! I’ve heard a lot of people say that Norway is beautiful, but now I’ve seen the proof. So sad that it’s so expensive… would love to see it for myself, but I think we’ll have to save up our pennies before that can happen!

  12. Yeah, I agree the scenery and photos are beautiful…. but…. it looks bloody cold!
    As much as I would like to see the mountains (and of course the northern lights), I don’t think I am in a rush to pack my bags just yet. I’ll visit the warm places first!

    Reply
    • Haha fair enough 😉 The Lofoten Islands were freezing, but the rest of Norway wasn’t too bad. That said, we had just finished cross-country skiing in Sweden and staying in an igloo in Finland ha! You’ll just have to visit in the summer- I think the weather would just be perfect then!
