Wild and rugged yet sophisticated and forward-thinking, Norway has it. One of the most naturally beautiful countries on the planet, Norway is home to a rich culture of wilderness and isolation. However, as the modern world presses more on rural areas, cities such as Tromsø, Bergen and Trondheim have adapted and boomed, bringing a unique symbiosis between cities and nature.
Nature in Norway is progressively becoming more of a leisure pursuit than a way of life. However, it is an idea that many Norwegians welcome with open arms, which is particularly evident in its National Parks, which are beacons of the national desire to protect, maintain and develop alongside the natural world.
This progression and balance with ‘green’ values can be seen through many cities in Norway, including one of the most popular highlights, the quaint city of Bergen. Surrounded by seven fjords and several incredible glaciers, this UNESCO world heritage site has developed to be one of Norway’s most frequented tourist hotspots.
