Flower power!

Good times!  

The sounds, smells and sights
of spring produce serotonin in your brain.

It creates a unique kind of happiness.

1. The fruit trees are in bloom

Hundreds of thousands of trees and billions of flowers. The trees normally blossom in May, a time which is particularly beautiful by the Hardangerfjord and the Sognefjord.

2. The waterfalls have their biggest flow

Many of Norway's most impressive waterfalls are found in Fjord Norway. The melting snow makes them even more impressive in spring.

3. You can relax beside solveggen

Aaaah!

Nothing is better than relaxing in a sheltered spot with your favourite drink as the sun caresses your face.

In Norway, every cabin has a wall for lounging in the sun, called solveggen (the "sun wall").

4. Snowcapped mountains

Be sure to charge your phone, so you can snap pictures of the view of the snowcapped mountains, towering over the fjords.

Hike, bike, or kayak, or catch a ride to the top of a mountain with the Loen Skylift (pictured) or Romsdal Gondola.
