Norway is a Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and deep coastal fjords. Oslo, the capital, is a city of green spaces and museums. Preserved 9th-century Viking ships are displayed at Oslo’s Viking Ship Museum. Bergen, with colorful wooden houses, is the starting point for cruises to the dramatic Sognefjord. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking and skiing, notably at Lillehammer’s Olympic resort.
We visited Norway while on a Scandinavian Cruise (Princess Cruises, Emerald Princess) in July 2016. We explored the city of Oslo, the capital of Norway, including Vigeland, a sculpture park & museum displaying the works of Gustav Vigeland, the Holmenkollen Ski Jump, the Viking Ship Museum, the National theatre, Parliament of Norway and the Royal Palace of Oslo.
