What is luxury? Bell boys and gold faucets?
Or free access to... this!
If you ask a Norwegian, the answer might surprise you!
Here are 10 things we consider to be a luxury:
Yes, we might be weird ... but luxury for us is to be able to spend more time outdoors! Many Norwegians prefer more free time over a pay rise.
Where's the spa? Everywhere! Norway is a giant natural spa.
Enjoy thousands of lakes and rivers, and waterfalls.
Less is more, so why not skip the swimsuit and go skinny dipping? ;)
Ditch the high heels. The dress code is hiking gear at this club!
The mountains are always open, and the view beats any bricks and mortar bar out there.
Hike your way up, or ...
We might not have any automakers to brag about, but we have our very own exclusive horse breed, which also happens to be the cutest horse in the world.
Meet the Norwegian Fjord Horse!
For Norwegians gourmet food is all about fresh, healthy, locally sourced ingredients in season.
It doesn't have to be too formal, though. At some fine dining restaurants in Norway, you can even wear slippers!
This is the case at Kvitnes Farm in Vesterålen, Northern Norway, a perfect example of fine farm-to-table dining.
Last but not least, feeling good is only possible when you are in balance with your surroundings.
