TOP 10 MUST-SEE PLACES IN NORWAY - A Photographer's Guide
This is a travel guide to Norway showing the top 10 places you must see if you’re visiting. These tips are from the perspective of a photographer, but the places are perfectly fine to visit if you’re a regular traveller as well.
I’ve been fortunate enough to travel around in Norway almost contently for the past few years as a time-lapse photographer. That has given me extensive knowledge of what Norway has to offer, also outside the most touristic places. This list includes some true hidden gems you might not have heard of before.
Norway is a fantastic country, and this list could’ve been much, much longer. But these are my favorites, and I’m sure you’ll love them too.

30 Secrets & Best Places in Oslo, Norway
My new Oslo Travel Guide includes these carefully selected 30 things to do & best places to visit in Oslo, Norway which I visited during a warm summer weekend ranging from gems like the Frogner Park, Viking Ship Museum, Whale Sushi, Stratos rooftop, eating black licorice ice cream and tips for the vibrant Oslo nightlife. Subscribe to my channel ► for weekly videos!
I did not have high expectations for Oslo but during this warm summer weekend the city offers many outdoor attractions, a great place to start is Aker Brygge to try the local delicacy Polse, a fancy hot dog rolled in bacon and injected with cheese than from Aker Brygge walk to the other popular attractions like the Royal Palace, Karl Johans Gate shopping street, Vippa, the Opera House or Sorenga Sjobad outdoor beach deck.
Download my FREE maps for Oslo:
Oslo is the capital of Norway and its metropolitan area has a population of 1.5 million including their royal family since Norway is a kingdom and is the only country in the world with territories in both the Arctic and Antarctica.
One important thing you must keep in mind; Oslo is extremely expensive and is rated one of the most expensive city in the world by Forbes Magazine, to give you an example, a simple hot dog will set you back $6 US dollars and that is considered on the cheap side.
In return for being an expensive city you get a very safe and easy going Scandinavian city experience. Public transit is easy to use and many signs and menus at restaurants are in English. The most bizarre dish I've had must have been the Brown Cheese Ice Cream for which you'll have to watch my Oslo video.
The Frogner Park must have been the most unique sculpture park I've ever been to, it is world's largest sculpture park by a single artist. Created by Gustav Vigeland between 1924 and 1943 with incredible sculptures like the angry boy and consist out of 200 works.
My favorite museum in Oslo is the Norwegian Museum of Cultural History for having a lot of great performances, historic foods and snacks to try and the overall feeling like you got transported back to the Viking ages.
Out of the blue I received a Facebook message from my American buddy Andrew who was coincidentally stopping by Oslo on his way home from the Arctic Norwegian island Svalbard to the United States. I met up with him and his girlfriend at the famous fish restaurant Fiskeriet Youngtorget for the freshest Norwegian salmon I've ever tasted.
After lunch I took my friends to the Akershus Fortress for the best view of Oslo and a little historic tour through Norway's Resistance Museum which teaches about the Nazi occupation of Norway during WW2.
For dinner I wanted to try true Norwegian cuisine and luckily Rorbua on Aker Brygge is known for having some of the best dishes in town. I ordered the Tastes of Norway meat stick with meats; Whale, Deer, Beef & Reindeer. An incredible dish with as winner: Reindeer for being extremely juicy, this dish cost me around $45 US dollars and don't forget to add the typical Norwegian beer Hansa.
Before the night falls, grab a few cocktails at either the Magic Ice Bar for some Norwegian Ice Wine or on top of the Thief Rooftop patio for the most upscale cocktail bar in town.
In conclusion, Oslo is a great 2 to 3-day stop over during the summer to enjoy a few outdoor activities, learn about the history of Norway and make many new friends, especially during the weekend nightlife of Oslo but for that you'll have to read my next article.

10 Top Tourist Attractions in France - Travel Video
Famous for its wines and cheeses, France is the world’s most popular tourist destination receiving 82 million foreign tourists annual. Visitors are attracted by historic cities, a beautiful countryside, the castles of the Loire Valley, and Brittany and Normandy. In addition, France offers an agreeable climate, some excellent beaches on the French Riviera, the Atlantic coast and the island of Corsica, wide possibilities for winter sports, most notably in the Alps and the Pyrenees, and a rich culture with food and wines that are among the most celebrated in the world. Here’s a look at the top tourist attractions in France.
13 Great Attraction in Scandinavia according to Lonely Planet
13 Great Attraction in Scandinavia according to Lonely Planet
13. Vestmanna Cliffs, Faroe Islands
Vestmanna is a village in Northern Streymoy, Faroe Islands. The cliffs west of Vestmanna, are very popular for excursions by boat. These are awe inspiring as the boat weaves around stacks, through arches and into caves; arctic and great skuas and gannets can be seen as well as puffins, common and black guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and arctic terns galore.
12. Thermal Springs & Saunas, Iceland
Public heated swimming pools and attendant hot pots are commonplace throughout in Iceland. The Blue Lagoon near Reykjavík, with its vivid, translucent blue, 100°F/40°C waters (cooled from their original temperature after being being pumped from a mile underground and powering an electrical plant) is a popular destination.
11. Ice Hotel, Sweden
A hotel constructed entirely out of ice. There are many copycats now, but this is the original. For obvious reasons, the 'ice' part of the hotel exists only between November and May, and a stay will cost you upwards of €300/night. They also offer ordinary rooms in the summer.
10. Skagen, Denmark
Skagen is the northernmost town in Denmark. It is a town where the main turnover are the fishing fleet and the connected industries - food industries and different industries supporting the fleet. Second income is tourism. There are 8.900 habitants in the town but in the main tourist season the inhabitants increase up to 50-60,000 persons.
9. New Nordic Food
When Noma topped S.Pellegrino's 2010 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' list, Copenhagen's culinary prowess was confirmed. Other countries have followed Denmark's lead, and exciting new restaurants now stock all the region's capitals, with more popping up like chanterelle mushrooms.
8. Island Cycling
A lazy bike ride around the perimeters of Gotland, the holiday-friendly Baltic Sea island, is one of the most rewarding ways to spend your time in Sweden: the mostly flat, paved Gotlandsleden cycle path circles the island, passing fields of poppies, shady woodlands, historic churches and ancient rune stones at regular intervals.
7. Old Town, Tallinn
Tallinn, the capital of Estonia, lies on the southern coast of the Gulf of Finland. At the historical and medieval heart of the city is the hill of Toompea, covered in cobbled streets and filled with medieval houses and alleyways. The lower town spreads out from the foot of the hill, still protected by the remnants of a city wall.
6. Svalbard, Norway
Svalbard is the northernmost tip of Europe and, a few military bases aside, its settlements are the northernmost permanently inhabited spots on the planet. Located between the 76° and 81° parallels, they are far more northerly than any part of Alaska.
5. Lofoten Islands, Norway
Lofoten is a group of islands in the northern part of Norway. With its postcard looking small fishing villages nestled in fjords, dotting a very rugged coast with abrupt peaks rising directly from the ocean, the archipelago is often described as one of the most scenic parts of Norway.
4. The Hermitage, St Petersburg
The State Hermitage is a museum of art and culture in Saint Petersburg, Russia. One of the largest and oldest museums in the world, it was founded in 1764 by Catherine the Great and has been open to the public since 1852. Its collections, of which only a small part is on permanent display, comprise over three million items, including the largest collection of paintings in the world.
3. Aurora Borealis, Lapland & Iceland
The Northern Lights look somewhat similar to a sunset in the sky at night, but appear occasionally in arcs or spirals usually following the earth's magnetic field. They fairly often look like moving curtains of light, high in the sky. They are most often light green in color but often have a hint of pink.
2. Fjords, Norway
Norway's famous fjords are found throughout the country and not limited to a particular region or location. In most parts of Norway fjords are the dominant landscape features, traditional districts are often identified by proximity to a major fjord and often have the same name.
1. National Park Hiking
Scandinavia's unspoilt wilderness areas are the finest in Europe. If you like dark pine woods populated by foxes and bears, head for northeastern Finland's Karhunkierros trail. Norway's Jotunheimen National Park encompasses hundreds of lofty mountain peaks and crystal-blue lakes. Lying inside the Arctic Circle, Abisko National Park in Sweden begins the epic 440km Kungsleden hiking trail.
