Post by Mayo-queen Wed Jan 07, 2015 6:05 am

[ltr]Norway is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places on Earth. It's home to more natural wonders than we can count and it has stunning cities, fascinating history and really happy people.[/ltr]


[ltr]Norway's not cheap. But it's worth it. Here are 25 reasons why.[/ltr]


[ltr]1. It's actually one of the happiest places on Earth.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-NORWAY-570
In the United Nation's 2013 World Happiness Report, Norway took the second place spot. The report surveyed 156 countries and looked at a number of factors, including life expectancy and health, freedom and social support. 



2. It's really safe.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-OSLO-570
The crime rate in Norway is incredibly low. The murder rate is low. The incarceration rate is low. As one wise law student once said, "happy people just don't shoot their husbands."



3. There's a law called "allemannsrett."
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-NORWAY-HIKING-570
Allemannsrett literally translates to "all men's rights." It's a "freedom to roam" public rights law that allows the right of access to and passage through all uncultivated land. This means you can pitch a tent or hike through any land that is "utmark" (non-cultivated). Also, wild-berrying is permitted everywhere. This little rule is extra awesome because there tons of jaw-droppingly beautiful places to see in Norway and few barriers stopping you. 



4. Trolltunga is the perfect photo op.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-TROLLTUNGA-570
Trolltunga is one of those insanely gorgeous locations. 



5. So is Kjeragbolten.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-KJERAGBOLTEN-570
See that boulder? You can stand on it. Where else can you hover thousands of feet above solid ground, suspended in the crevice of a mountain? 



6. Even urban spaces are lush.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-OSLO-570
Such as Oslo, Norway's capital. Forested hills rise above the city and there's plenty of green space within Oslo -- it's definitely no concrete jungle. 



7. Fredrikstad Fortress is an ancient wonderland.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-GAMLEBYEN-570
Fredrikstad Fortress claims to be one of the best preserved old towns in Scandinavia. 



8. Fjords.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-FJORD-NORWAY-570
Norway's fjords are natural wonders that just beg you to go exploring. 



9. Norway produced this beauty...




10. There are adorable fisherman's cabins.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-FISHING-CABIN-NORWAY-570
They're everywhere! You can even stay in one, if your heart desires. 



11. See the midnight sun.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-MIDNIGHT-SUN-NORWAY-570
This natural phenomenon -- 24 hours of visible sun -- occurs during the summer in northern Norway, which sits above the Arctic Circle. Not only is the midnight sun an incredible sight, it leaves more hours in the day for fishing, boating, climbing and exploring. 



12. It's regarded as the birthplace of skiing.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-NORWAY-SKIING-570
Early evidence of modern skiing has been found in Norway. The word "ski" actually comes from Old Norse and roughly translates to "split piece of wood."



13. It has more lakes than Finland aka "The Land of 1,000 Lakes."
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-NORWAY-LAKE-570
While Finland has more than 60,000 lakes, Norway surpasses it. There are hundreds of thousands of lakes in Norway and they're really beautiful. 



14. Hornindalsvatnet is the deepest lake in Europe.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-HORNINDAL-LAKE-570



15. Norway also boasts the world's longest tunnel.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-LRDAL-ROAD-TUNNEL-570



25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-LRDAL-ROAD-TUNNEL-570
Lærdal road tunnel is 24.5 kilometers (15.2 miles) long. Three colorfully-lit caves separate the tunnel into four sections in order to make passing through it less stressful on the driver. The drive through the tunnel takes about 20 minutes. 



16. This view from the top of Mount Fløyen in Bergen.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-FLIBANEN-FUNICULAR-570
You can take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of the mountain. Epic views are guaranteed.



17. You can see the Northern Lights.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-LOFOTEN-ISLANDS-570
Head to the Lofoten Islands for a spectacular view. 



18. Two words: Wild. Reindeer.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-WILD-REINDEER-NORWAY-570
Santa can't be far. 



19. Two more words: polar bears!
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-POLAR-BEARS-SVALBARD-570
You can spot them on a trip to the Svalbard Islands. 



20. The national drink is Aquavit.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-NORWEGIAN-AQUAVIT-570
It's a potato-based spirit flavored with herbs. It's very potent. Most people use beer as a chaser. It's hardcore. 



21. You can ski in the middle of the summer.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-STRYN-SUMMER-SKI-570
Stryn Summer Ski Center opens in late May and welcomes skiiers through late July or mid-August depending on the snow conditions. If you get a hankering for skiing during the warm months, you know where to go.



22. Aalesund is gorgeous by day...
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-AALESUND-570



23. And by night.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-AALESUND-570



24. Ferrying through Geirangerfjord is breathtaking.
25 Reasons Norway Is The Greatest Place On Earth O-GEIRANGERFJORD-900



25. And finally, Norway's geography includes 240,000 islands and a coastline that stretches over 64,000 miles.

We had a exchange student from Oslo, back when my kids were growing up, John was such a delight, and his parents both were so cool, working class people so down to earth. I thought I read some where that the country was so rich even the residents of Norway had no clue of their wealth. Yep , gotta look that family up soon Mona and get over there. ;-) Great post
