Visit scenic cities in Norway

Colorful Bergen by Andrea Giubelli, Visit Norway

Beautifully located, small & picturesque:

In a global perspective, we have quite small cities in Norway: our capital Oslo is the largest with approximately 600 000 inhabitants, then comes Bergen with 250 000. There are quite a few scenic cities and towns to visit in Norway. For a brief visit to Norway, we recommend Oslo, Bergen, Alesund and Trondheim in the southern part of Norway, and the Arctic town of Tromso in Northern Norway.

Oslo - Norway's Capital

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
