  1. 1. Space walks

    Walking in space is probably the Norwegian's number one activity!

    The Right to Roam allows you to move freely and go hiking almost all over the country.

  2. 2. Open space

    There are also some spaces in Norway that are even spacier than others. 

    Walk for hours at the white beaches of Jæren in the Stavanger region, roam in the footsteps of the reindeer at Finnmarksvidda in Northern Norway or visit our northernmost outpost, Svalbard.

  3. 3. Spacelike landscapes

    Do you feel like exploring another planet...? 

    Take a closer look at this weird, natural rock formation in Skarsvåg, close to The North Cape.

    Or go to the island of Leka, which is part of one of Norway's UNESCO geoparks. There you can find a tiny part of America with it's characteristic yellow-red landscapes.

  • 5. Cosmic experiences

    Spend time where the sun never sets. Or never comes up. Up north, the midnight sun shines both night and day during the summer months.

    During winter, if you are lucky, the northern lights might fill the sky. Maybe the cosmic phenomenon that brings you closest to the real forces of space!
