Take the Scenic Route by Train from Oslo to Bergen
Travelling via train between Oslo to Bergen is one of the most scenic journeys around, and it will take you through various different types of landscapes from south to north. You’ll see many fjords, and the weather takes a distinctly more wintry turn as you travel! It’s one for the camera for sure, and even if you don’t need to go to Bergen for any real reason, this railway line is one to take regardless.

Hiking in Jotunheimen
Take the Norwegian Coastal Route
Better known as Kystriksveien, the coastal route is one which will show you the best of the entire coastline of this beautiful country. It does cover a huge 650 km, so it’s not likely that you’ll get to see all of it, but any portion is enough! You can take ferries for huge parts of the route, hire a car, or do some hiking too. Be sure to check out Lovund along the way, where you’ll find thousands of noisy puffins!
