Norway (/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ (About this sound listen) NAWR-way; Norwegian: About this sound Norge (Bokmål) or About this sound Noreg (Nynorsk)),[10] officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign state and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.[note 1] The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the kingdom included the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. It also included Bohuslän until 1658, Jämtland and Härjedalen until 1645, Shetland and Orkney until 1468, and the Hebrides and Isle of Man until 1266.

Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,258,317 (as of January 2017).[12] The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.

King Harald V of the Dano-German House of Glücksburg is the current King of Norway. Erna Solberg became Prime Minister in 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg. A constitutional monarchy, Norway divides state power between the Parliament, the Cabinet and the Supreme Court, as determined by the 1814 Constitution. The kingdom is established as a merger of several petty kingdoms. By the traditional count from the year 872, the kingdom has existed continuously for 1,144 years, and the list of Norwegian monarchs includes over sixty kings and earls.

Norway has both administrative and political subdivisions on two levels: counties and municipalities. The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with the European Union and the United States. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, the Antarctic Treaty, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO, and the OECD; and is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The country maintains a combination of market economy and a Nordic welfare model with universal health care and a comprehensive social security system. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower. The petroleum industry accounts for around a quarter of the country's gross domestic product (GDP).[13] On a per-capita basis, Norway is the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas outside the Middle East.[14][15]

The country has the fourth-highest per capita income in the world on the World Bank and IMF lists.[16] On the CIA's GDP (PPP) per capita list (2015 estimate) which includes territories and some regions, Norway ranks as number eleven.[17] It has the world's largest sovereign wealth fund, with a value of 960 billion USD.[18] Since 2009, Norway has the highest Human Development Index ranking in the world, a position also held previously between 2001 and 2006.[19] It also has the highest inequality-adjusted ranking.[20][21][22] Norway ranks first on the World Happiness Report,[23] the OECD Better Life Index, the Index of Public Integrity, and the Democracy Index.[24]

Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Scandinavian unitary constitutional monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula, Jan Mayen, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island.[note 1] Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of a little above 5 million.[10] It is the 2nd least densely populated country in Europe. The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long), which is the longest uninterrupted border within both Scandinavia & Europe at large. Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak Strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. It shares maritime borders with Russia by the Barents Sea; Greenland, the Faroe Islands, and Iceland by the Norwegian Sea; and Sweden, Denmark, and the United Kingdom by the North Sea. Norway's extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea, is laced with fjords, a renowned part of its landscape. The capital city Oslo is the largest in the nation, with a population of 1 million. Norway has extensive reserves of petroleum, natural gas, minerals, lumber, seafood, fresh water, and hydropower.
Two centuries of Viking raids to southern and western areas tapered off following the adoption of Christianity in AD 994. Norway expanded its control overseas to parts of Britain, Ireland, Iceland, and Greenland. Norwegian power peaked in 1265, but competition from the Hanseatic League and the spread of the Black Death weakened the country. In 1380, Norway was absorbed into a union with Denmark that lasted more than four centuries. In 1814, Norwegians resisted the cession of their country to Sweden and adopted a new constitution. Sweden went to war with Norway but agreed to let Norway keep its constitution in return for accepting the union under a Swedish king. Later Norway demanded independence, which it gained in a referendum in 1905. Norway remained neutral in World War I. Despite its declaration of neutrality in World War II, Norway was occupied for 5 years by forces of Nazi Germany. In 1949, it abandoned neutrality becoming a founding member of NATO. Discovery of oil in adjacent waters in the late 1960s boosted Norway's economic fortunes. The country maintains a welfare model with universal health care, subsidised higher education, and a comprehensive social security system. Key domestic issues include immigration and integration of ethnic minorities, maintaining the country's extensive social safety net with an aging population, and preserving economic competitiveness.[2][11]
King Harald V is Norway's head of state and Erna Solberg became Prime Minister on 16 October 2013, replacing Jens Stoltenberg, and the government made a shift from being a labour to a conservative government. It has administrative subdivisions on two levels known as counties (fylke) and municipalities (kommuner). The Sámi people have a certain amount of self-determination and influence over traditional territories through the Sámi Parliament and the Finnmark Act. Norway maintains close ties with the European Union and its member countries (despite rejecting full EU membership in two referenda), as well as with the United States. Norway participates with United Nations forces in international missions, notably in Afghanistan, Kosovo, Sudan, and Libya. Norway is a founding member of the United Nations, NATO, the Council of Europe, and the Nordic Council; a member of the European Economic Area, the WTO and the OECD; and is also a part of the Schengen Area.

The Beauty of the Northern Countries (Norway, Iceland, Finland, Sweden, etc)

A tribute to the beauty and culture of Greenland, Denmark, The Faroe Islands, Sweden, Finland including Åland, and Norway... including Svalbard, Jan Mayen, and the traditional territories of the indigenous Sami people. (The flag I display for Svalbard and Jan Meyen is not at all official.. it was simply a proposed flag. These islands usually display the Norwegian flag, as they are part of Norway, but I wanted to create a distinction for the purpose of the organization of this video.)

This Video is about a beautiful part of the world. I do not want the comment section to be filled with debates about what is Scandinavian, what is Nordic, whether the Finns were viking and so on. It makes me sad to see such arguments.

Norway Tour & attractions

The Kingdom of Norway About this sound Norge Bokmål or About this sound Noreg (Nynorsk)), commonly referred to as Norway, is a unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus Jan Mayen and the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to Queen Maud Land, a territory which is larger than Greenland, more than seven times the size of Norway proper, and about one-fifth of the Antarctic landmass. On most maps there had been an unclaimed area between Queen Maud Land and the South Pole until June 12, 2015 when Norway formally annexed[10] that area. Until 1814, the Kingdom included the Faroe Islands (since 1035), Greenland (1261), and Iceland (1262), which was lost through the Treaty of Kiel. The Kingdom also included Shetland and Orkney until 1468, as well as the Hebrides and the Isle of Man from 1098 to 1266.(Listeni/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ nawr-way; Norwegian:

Amazing Svalbard

Svalbard (Norwegian pronunciation: [ˈsvɑːlbɑː, ˈsvɑl-];[3] formerly known by its Dutch name Spitsbergen) is a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. Situated north of mainland Europe, it is about midway between continental Norway and the North Pole. The islands of the group range from 74° to 81° north latitude, and from 10° to 35° east longitude. The largest island is Spitsbergen, followed by Nordaustlandet and Edgeøya.

Administratively, the archipelago is not part of any Norwegian county, but forms an unincorporated area administered by a governor appointed by the Norwegian government. Since 2002, Svalbard's main settlement, Longyearbyen, has had an elected local government, somewhat similar to mainland municipalities. Other settlements include the Russian mining community of Barentsburg, the research station of Ny-Ålesund, and the mining outpost of Sveagruva. Ny-Ålesund is the northernmost settlement in the world with a permanent civilian population. Other settlements are farther north, but are populated only by rotating groups of researchers.

The islands were first taken into use as a whaling base in the 17th and 18th centuries, after which they were abandoned. Coal mining started at the beginning of the 20th century, and several permanent communities were established. The Svalbard Treaty of 1920 recognizes Norwegian sovereignty, and the 1925 Svalbard Act made Svalbard a full part of the Kingdom of Norway. They also established Svalbard as a free economic zone and a demilitarized zone. The Norwegian Store Norske and the Russian Arktikugol remain the only mining companies in place. Research and tourism have become important supplementary industries, with the University Centre in Svalbard (UNIS) and the Svalbard Global Seed Vault playing critical roles. No roads connect the settlements; instead snowmobiles, aircraft and boats serve inter-community transport. Svalbard Airport, Longyear serves as the main gateway.

The archipelago features an Arctic climate, although with significantly higher temperatures than other areas at the same latitude. The flora take advantage of the long period of midnight sun to compensate for the polar night. Svalbard is a breeding ground for many seabirds, and also features polar bears, reindeer, the Arctic fox, and certain marine mammals. Seven national parks and twenty-three nature reserves cover two-thirds of the archipelago, protecting the largely untouched, yet fragile, natural environment. Approximately 60% of the archipelago is covered with glaciers, and the islands feature many mountains and fjords.

Svalbard and Jan Mayen are collectively assigned the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code SJ. Both areas are administered by Norway, though they are separated by a distance of over 950 kilometres (510 nautical miles) and have very different administrative structures.

Conheça a Noruega - Pontos Turísticos

A Noruega, oficialmente Reino da Noruega, é um país nórdico da Europa setentrional que ocupa a parte ocidental da Península Escandinava, a ilha de Jan Mayen e o arquipélago ártico de Svalbard, através do Tratado de Svalbard. A parte continental do país divide fronteira a leste com a Suécia e ao norte com a Finlândia e a Rússia. O Reino Unido e as Ilhas Faroe estão a oeste, através do Mar do Norte, a Islândia e a Groenlândia estão a oeste, através do mar da Noruega, e a Dinamarca fica próxima ao extremo sul do país, através do estreito de Escagerraque. A Ilha Bouvet, no Atlântico sul, e a Ilha de Pedro I, no oceano glacial Antártico, são territórios dependentes (norueguês: Biland) da Noruega, mas não são considerados parte do Reino. A Noruega também reivindica uma parte da Antártida conhecida como Terra da Rainha Maud, uma reivindicação que foi reconhecida pela Austrália, França, Nova Zelândia e Reino Unido. A extensa linha costeira da Noruega, de frente para o oceano Atlântico Norte e para o mar de Barents, é a casa de seus famosos fiordes.

A Noruega mantém o modelo social escandinavo, baseado no modelo nórdico, na saúde universal, no ensino superior subsidiado e em um regime abrangente de previdência social. A Noruega foi classificada como o país mais desenvolvido do mundo em todos os relatórios de desenvolvimento humano desde 2001 (com dados referentes entre 1999 e 2010). Em 2009, o país foi novamente classificado pela ONU como o melhor país do mundo para se viver. A Noruega também foi avaliada como o país mais pacífico do mundo em uma pesquisa realizada em 2007 pelo Índice Global da Paz. Em 2017, um estudo feito por peritos internacionais com apoio da ONU, classificou a Noruega como o país mais feliz do mundo, superando a Dinamarca que liderou o ranking no ano anterior.

Apesar de ter rejeitado a adesão à União Europeia em dois referendos, a Noruega mantém laços estreitos com a UE e com seus países-membros, bem como com os Estados Unidos. O país é considerado um participante de destaque na diplomacia e na cooperação internacional, tendo sido profundamente envolvido nos fracassados Acordos de Oslo e nas negociações de uma trégua entre o governo do Sri Lanka e os Tigres Tamil. A Noruega continua a ser um dos maiores contribuintes financeiros da Organização das Nações Unidas e participa com as forças da ONU em missões internacionais, como no Afeganistão, Kosovo e Darfur.

Um estado unitário com subdivisões administrativas em dois níveis conhecidos como condados (fylker) e comunas (kommuner), a Noruega é uma monarquia constitucional hereditária e uma democracia parlamentar, com o Rei Haroldo V como seu Chefe de Estado. Os lapões têm uma certa dose de auto-determinação e influência sobre seus territórios tradicionais, através do Parlamento Lapônio e da Lei Finnmark. A Noruega é um dos membros fundadores da ONU, da OTAN (ou NATO), do Conselho da Europa e do Conselho Nórdico, além de ser membro do Espaço Econômico Europeu, da OMC e da OCDE.

O país possui uma área de 385 199 km², uma parte da qual se distribui por mais de 150 000 ilhas. Na área continental, predomina a paisagem de montanhas, platôs e fiordes. A Noruega possui uma fronteira territorial de 2 542 km, sendo 1 619 km com a Suécia ao leste, 727 km com a Finlândia ao nordeste e 196 km com a Rússia no extremo norte. Ao sul, a Noruega se separa da Dinamarca pelo estreito de Escagerraque. A extensão aproximada do país, de norte a sul, é de 1 700 km.

O terreno glacial é formado em maior parte por platôs altos e montanhas ásperas, através dos quais aparecem vales férteis. O país possui: pequenas e irregulares planícies, linha costeira bastante recortada por fiordes e tundra ao norte.

O clima da Noruega pode ser: oceânico, continental, subártico e alpino, com verões amenos e invernos longos e rigorosos, com ventos fortes e alta precipitação de neve. Diferentemente dos outros países escandinavos, uma grande faixa litorânea do país à beira do Mar do Norte e do Mar da Noruega é aquecida pela corrente do golfo, fazendo com que apresente-se, mesmo no mês mais frio, janeiro, regiões com temperaturas médias superiores a 0 °C, sendo mais comum precipitações em forma de chuva do que neve, como é o caso de Bergen, que em janeiro registra médias em torno de 2 °C. As ilhas Lofoten apresentam a maior anomalia climática positiva no que diz respeito à latitude. Entretanto, na fronteira com a Finlândia no condado de Finnmark, os termômetros podem registrar 40 °C negativos entre dezembro e março. A mais alta temperatura registrada no país foi 35.6 °C em Nesbyen, enquanto a mínima foi -51.4 °C em Karasjok.

Gibraltar. Travel / Tourism.The Travel Channel.
Gibraltar is a British Overseas Territory located on the southern end of the Iberian Peninsula at the entrance of the Mediterranean. It has an area of 6.0 km2 (2.3 sq mi) and shares its northern border with the Province of Cádiz in Andalusia, Spain. The Rock of Gibraltar is the major landmark of the region. At its foot is a densely populated city area, home to almost 30,000 Gibraltarians and other nationalities.

An Anglo-Dutch force captured Gibraltar from Spain in 1704 during the War of the Spanish Succession on behalf of the Habsburg pretender to the Spanish throne. The territory was subsequently ceded to Britain in perpetuity under the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713. It was an important base for the Royal Navy; today its economy is based largely on tourism, online gambling, financial services, and shipping.

The sovereignty of Gibraltar is a major point of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations as Spain asserts a claim to the territory. Gibraltarians overwhelmingly rejected proposals for Spanish sovereignty in a 1967 referendum and again in 2002. Under the Gibraltar constitution of 2006, Gibraltar governs its own affairs, though some powers, such as defence and foreign relations, remain the responsibility of the UK Government.

Tourism in Gibraltar constitutes one of the British Overseas Territory's most important economic pillars, alongside financial services and shipping. Gibraltar's main attractions are the Rock of Gibraltar and its resident population of Barbary macaques (or apes), the territory's military heritage, duty-free shopping, casinos and marinas. Although the population of Gibraltar numbers only some 30,000 people, the territory recorded nearly 12 million visits in 2011, giving it one of the highest tourist-to-resident ratios in the world.

The Government of Gibraltar has sought to develop the tourism sector to replace Gibraltar's former dependence on the British military, its chief economic mainstay until cuts in the UK's Ministry of Defence budget led to the gradual run-down in the military presence after the 1980s. Gibraltar's marinas – one of which was the first to have been built in the region – have made Gibraltar an important hub for sea transport for over 50 years. A tourist boom began in the mid-1980s but stalled by the end of the decade before being boosted again in the mid-1990s by a programme of Government investment and marketing. The building of the new Gibraltar Cruise Terminal, a new airport terminal, pedestrianisation of key streets, redevelopment of historic buildings in the city centre and improvements to tourist attractions elsewhere on the peninsula have helped to increase tourist numbers considerably since the turn of the 21st century.

See how we managed to do southern Norway on a short budget in only three days with no place to stay. Original target was Gothenburg, second target was Prekestolen outside Stavanger. But with a bit of improvising we manage to drive through Norway and saw both typical Norwegian Fjords, mountains and beaches.

Aleutian Islands , Alaska, USA, travel, flora, fauna, volcanoes, weather,

The climate of the islands is oceanic, with moderate and fairly uniform temperatures and heavy rainfall. Fogs are almost constant. Summer weather is much cooler than Southeast Alaska (around Sitka), but the winter temperature of the islands and of the Alaska Panhandle is very nearly the same.[4] During the winter the islands are the center for the semi-permanent low-pressure area called the Aleutian low.

Cape Promontory, Cape Lutkes on Unimak Island in the Aleutian Islands, Alaska.
the islands, such as Adak and Amaknak, there are a few coniferous trees growing, remnants of the Russian period. While tall trees grow in many cold climates, Aleutian conifers — some estimated to be two hundred years old — rarely reach a height of even 10 feet (3 m), and many of them are still less than 5 feet (1.5 m) tall. This is because the islands, much like the Falklands and other islands of similar latitudes, experience such strong winds that taller trees are vulnerable to snapping off.
Instead of trees, the islands are covered with a luxuriant, dense growth of herbage and shrubs, including crowberry, bluejoint, grasses, sedges, and many flowering plants.[6] There are areas of peat bog near the coasts. Endemic plants include the endangered Aleutian shield fern.
Fauna[edit]
The Aleutians are home to many large colonies of seabirds. Buldir Island has 21 breeding seabird species, including the Bering Sea-endemic red-legged kittiwake. Large seabird colonies are also present at Kiska, Gareloi, Semisopochnoi, Bogoslof, and others. The islands are also frequented by vagrant Asiatic birds, including the common rosefinch, Siberian rubythroat, bluethroat, lanceolated warbler, and the first North American record of the intermediate egret.[7]
The habitats of the Aleutians are largely unspoiled, but wildlife is affected by competition from introduced species such as cattle, caribou, and foxes. Radioactivity is still present in the environment following nuclear weapon testing on Amchitka in 1971. Nearly all of the Aleutians are protected as part of the Alaska Maritime National Wildlife Refuge and the Aleutian Islands Wilderness.[8]
Observations have identified sea otters as a keystone species along the coasts of many of the Aleutian Islands. Their presence encourages the growth of kelp forests, as the otters control sea urchin populations (as large populations of sea urchins can create urchin barrens by clearing away kelp stands).[9]
Economy[edit]
On the less mountainous islands, the raising of sheep and reindeer was once believed to be practicable.[6] There are bison on islands near Sand Point. Sheep raising seems to have died off with the advent of synthetic fibers, which lowered the value of wool. During the 1980s, there were some llama being raised on Unalaska. The current economy is primarily based on fishing, and the presence of U.S. military. The only crop is potato. Chickens are raised in barns under protection from the cold.
Transportation[edit]
In addition to a partial air service and a ferry service, the Alaska Marine Highway passes through many of the U.S. islands.
Demographics[edit]
The native people refer to themselves as Unangan, and are now generally known by most non-natives as the Aleut. The Aleut language is one of the two main branches of the Eskimo–Aleut language family. This family is not known to be related to any others. The 2000 U.S. Census recorded a population of 8,162 on the islands, of whom 4,283 were living in the main settlement of Unalaska.
History[edit]
Prehistory[edit]
Because of the location of the islands, stretching like a broken bridge from Asia to America, many anthropologists believe they were a route of the first human occupants of the Americas. The earliest known evidence of human occupation in the Americas is much farther south; the early human sites in Alaska have probably been submerged by rising waters during the current interglacial period. People living in the Aleutian Islands developed fine skills in hunting, fishing, and basketry. Hunters made their weapons and watercraft. The baskets are noted for being finely woven with carefully shredded stalks of beach rye.
Russian period[edit]
Explorers, traders and missionaries arrived from Russia beginning in 1741.
In 1741, the Russian government sent Vitus Bering, a Dane in the service of Russia, and Aleksei Chirikov, a Russian, in the ships Saint Peter and Saint Paul on a voyage of discovery in the Northern Pacific. After the ships were separated by a storm, Chirikov discovered several eastern islands of the Aleutian group, and Bering discovered several of the western islands, finally being wrecked and losing his life on the island of the Komandorskis (Commander Islands) that now bears his name (Bering Island). The survivors of Bering's party reached the Kamchatka Peninsula in a boat constructed from the wreckage of their ship, and reported that the islands were rich in fur-bearing animals.[

Norway in XIX century

Norway (/ˈnɔːrweɪ/ (About this sound listen) NAWR-way; Norwegian: About this sound Norge (Bokmål) or About this sound Noreg (Nynorsk); Northern Sami: Norga),[10] officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a sovereign state and unitary monarchy whose territory comprises the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula plus the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard.[note 1] The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the Kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land. Until 1814, the kingdom included the Faroe Islands, Greenland, and Iceland. It also included Bohuslän until 1658, Jämtland and Härjedalen until 1645, Shetland and Orkney until 1468, and the Hebrides and Isle of Man until 1266.

Norway has a total area of 385,252 square kilometres (148,747 sq mi) and a population of 5,258,317 (as of January 2017).[12] The country shares a long eastern border with Sweden (1,619 km or 1,006 mi long). Norway is bordered by Finland and Russia to the north-east, and the Skagerrak strait to the south, with Denmark on the other side. Norway has an extensive coastline, facing the North Atlantic Ocean and the Barents Sea.
