Norway has seen a sharp rise in people visiting in recent years. Why? It’s a winter experience like no other.
We have visited Norway each season for the past few years and have something of a soft spot for the Scandinavian country.
We love the place – its skiing, its people and everytime we have different winter adventures.
It doesn’t have the biggest resorts, the deepest powder or the steepest terrain.
It’s apres ski can be bettered and drinks could certainly be cheaper.
But for us it offers something like no other – a 100% unique and genuine winter experience.
And the 7 reasons?
