Description

In conjunction with National Geographic Society's
Center for Sustainable Destinations, National Geographic Traveler has devoted its
sixth annual "Places Rated" Destination Stewardship survey to the world's most
celebrated and iconic travel destinations and how well they have weathered the
pressures of mass tourism and other threats.

Like the first Destination Rated survey in 2004, Norway's fjords region has again
taken top honors, with a score of 85 points. Judges noted the gorgeous scenery
and well-preserved rural life that are vigorously protected.
