Things to do in Norway
Bergen - stroll the historic Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf
Walking around the Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf is like stepping back in time. Many of the 62 buildings in the area have been painstakingly restored to their original condition using original techniques so you could easily be 900 years ago. The site is a UNESCO World Heritage site with plenty of traditional shops to look into and restaurants to eat in.
Bergen - take a Scenic Train Ride on the Flam Railway
Frequently listed in the world’s top 10 train journeys, a trip on the 20 km Flam railway will take you pass some breath taking scenery, waterfalls, valleys and some mountain farms perched high up on seemingly impossible pastures. This world, steepest railway on standard gauge track follows the valley down from Myrdal to Flam, a drop of 865 metres. Journey time is about 60 minutes.
Bodo - explore the Norwegian Aviation Museum
Built right next to an old WW II airfield the Norwegian Aviation Museum was opened in 1994. What is unusual about the displays is how close you can get to the exhibits including a seldom seen U2 Spyplane. Planes are located on the ground and from the ceiling, they seem to be everywhere visitors look. This museum displays a selection of historic, interesting military and civilian aircraft.
Kristiansand - absorb the exhibits at the Sorlandet Art Museum
The Sorlandet Art Museum houses examples of many of Norway’s finest painters and sculptors both historical and contemporary. In addition to the permanent display there are frequent temporary exhibitions. Guided tours are available on Saturdays and Sundays around lunch time and be sure to take your student discount card if you have one. This art museum is closed on Monday and key public holidays.
Lillehammer - experience the Maihaugen Open Air Museum
A great day out for the whole family the Maihaugen Open Air Museum has four main areas of interest. One portrays Norwegian country life in the Gudbrandsladen Valley over the last 300 years. A second area shows town life between WW I and WW II with buildings from Lillehammer. A third has single buildings from different eras. Look out for the real life displays during the summer months. While the last area displays fields and landscapes of Maihaugen.
Oslo - discover the old architecture of Oslo City Hall
The City Hall in Oslo was started in 1931 but due to WWII it was not inaugurated until 1950. The seat of the city’s government it also hosts many of Norway’s finest works of art including paintings, sculptures and carvings. Listen out for the bells which chime every hour during the day until midnight. The City Hall is also world famous for hosting the Nobel Peace Prize awards every December.
Oslo - learn at the Fram Polar Ship Museum
The Fram Polar Ship Museum tells the story of Norway’s polar expeditions including those of Roald Amundsen. The Fram itself is a wooden ship launched in 1892 and has its place in history as the ship that has been both the furthest north and south. There are plenty of interesting displays plus an opportunity to go on deck and look around the confined conditions the explorers lived with for years.
Oslo - visit the Norwegian Folk Museum
The Norwegian Folk Museum is set in 140,000 sq meters of land and has over 155 buildings portraying farm life in Norway back to the 1500s. The oldest building in the museum is the Gol Stave Church dating back to 1200. During the summer months there are displays of folk dancing every Sunday. There is even a working barn complete with animals. The museum is open 360 days a year.
Stavanger - hike up the Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock)
A hike up to Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock and back can take up to 3 hours and is very steep at times. For those reaching the top, they will be rewarded with fantastic, scenic views. The Preikestolen itself is a 25m x 25m flat top cliff which at the very top is just over 600m above Lysefjorden. This hike should only be undertaken in the summer months between April to October by experienced walkers, normally using a guide.
Trondheim - marvel at the Nidaros Cathedral
Taking nearly 230 years to complete the cathedral opened its doors to pilgrims in 1300. It has undergone numerous repairs and renovations, the last major one being in 2001. The west front is absolutely stunning and was completely rebuilt in 1900. The interior is filled with carvings and ornate arches as well as works of art. Ensure you take a look at St John’s Chapel, which can be found in the oldest part of the cathedral.
Introduction of Norway
Characterised by its west coast fjords and sparsely populated mountain terrain, Norway is one of Europe's most unspoilt countries. It is also one of the richest countries in the world thanks to its vast swathes of North Sea oil and gas. As such, the cost of living is high and Norway hotels on the pricey side. Many visitors get here by flying into the capital, Oslo, a liberal city which is at the heart of Norwegian culture and heritage. Most national museums are located here, while Oslo has a rapidly-growing nightlife scene. In West Norway, Bergen is the former capital and the second-largest city in the country. Most travellers spend a few days here while planning their trip to the western fjords. These sea inlets, enclosed on either side by a rugged mountain face, have been recognised by UNESCO. There are also some fabulous waterfalls in the region, many of which drop directly into the fjords. The ancient city of Trondheim, featuring one of the biggest churches in Europe, Nidaros Cathedral, as well as the edgiest music scene in the country, is located in the centre of the country.
