The principle attraction of Norway is the landscape shaped by the elements. The fjords, the estuaries that lead inland from the sea, trim an abrupt coastline where the sun and the clouds paint chiaroscuros. Small towns of colourfully painted houses greet those who cross the Norwegian fjords, not to mention the striking architecture of Oslo, the oldest Scandinavian capital. In contrast with the spectacular constructions like the capital's Opera House, up to thirty Stavkirke can be found in Norway, wooden churches constructed in the middle ages, of obvious Viking design. Speaking of culture, travellers to the centre and north of the country, can discover Lapland, and gain a first person taste of the life of the Sami, the nomadic people from northern Scandinavia, accompanied by their herds of reindeer. Then beyond the Arctic Circle, we have yet to see the lunar landscape of North Cape. Or the remote Svalbard islands, where bears and whale hunters still live in coexistence, another reason to ravel to Norway.
