In Norway, it’s never too cold to go for a swim. Although, taking some time in one of the country’s countless new saunas first will probably help. Let the heat soak all the way into your very core, before throwing yourself into the refreshingly cold water outside. Even if there’s a slight tickle of rain in the air, you’re guaranteed to feel like a new and better version of yourself afterwards. A chic spa hotel is also a solid option to get you into that zen mode.
Even though Oslo has been claimed to be among the top cities in the world to visit, there are still several other smaller cities worth your time. Despite their smaller size, cities such as Bergen and Ålesund are sure to provide you with grand – and a little different – adventures.
Lonely Planet is not alone in naming the Bergen Line one of the most beautiful train rides in the world. However, Norway has several other breathtaking stretches to travel by train, such as the Rauma Line and the Nordland Line.
