We have seen the Northern Lights, been in the Arctic Circle in summer when the sun never set, hiked some unbelievable country in Lofoten, been skiing out in the woods just 15 minutes' drive from the city and stood on Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) 600 meters above Lysefjord (I wasn't kidding about the outdoors bit)! - Jun 2015


Preikestolen is excellent! Visits to cities in the western part of the country (Bergen, Trondheim). - May 2013


Our fjord trip last summer and taking the Hurtigruten (working Norwegian cruise/postal) ship) to the Lofoten Islands which are located above the Arctic circle. - Aug 2011
