Norway is a ruggedly beautiful country of mountains, fjords and glaciers. The 'Land of the Midnight Sun' has delightfully long summer days, pleasantly low-key cities, unspoiled fishing villages and rich historic sites that include Viking ships and medieval stave churches. Norway prizes its stunning natural wonders and retains a robust frontier character unusual in Europe. It's not all frozen tundra, either. The temperate south includes rolling farmlands, enchanted forests and sunny beaches as well as the dramatic Western Fjords.

For some reason I haven't been sleeping well at all on this journey. Late nights chasing the aurora and limited daylight mean I have to be out there as much as possible. You can't stay inside when the sun rises after 9 AM and sets at 2:30 PM. Yesterday ... Read more >

An Oslo Stroll

Mon, 10 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [63] | Comments [1]

For much of this trip I was dreading having to spend time in Oslo. The Norwegian capital just doesn't stand out the same way as London, Rome, or Vienna. People travel to France just to go to Paris and to the Netherlands to go to Amsterdam but you'd be ... Read more >

Feeling Hopeless...

Thu, 6 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [77]

When the clouds firmly cover the sky and the weather is foul, you can’t stay in one place when searching for the aurora. Today I made a move from Gibostad, on the island of Senja, to Narvik, 2 1/2 hours south. Two nights gone and two nights of ... Read more >

Hoping for the Aurora

Wed, 5 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [48]

One night of my five nights in the north of Norway is already in the books. The weather and the clouds haven't let up, and I was so exhausted last night I ended up sleeping in until 3 PM today. It was dark by then, and there isn't much to do when it's ... Read more >

The Great Northern Light Chase

Tue, 4 Dec 2018 | By kiwiaoraki | Views [72]

After today I'll think twice about flying with Norwegian on a future trip to Norway. Though my flight wasn't until 12:30 PM, I was on the road at 7:30 AM after thanking Nina and Zeljko for their hospitality. Hønefoss is only about a 55-minute ... Read more >

"Norway in December, you are a brave soul" -Sara Wall, fellow perpetual traveller About two months ago I had a dream: one where I was viewing the Northern Lights. As I woke up I thought "why have I not seen them?" Plenty of times I've thought of going ... Read more >

Bergen: Home of the Hanseatic League

Sun, 21 Oct 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [57]

As my train pulled into Bergen I realized my phone, which I was relying on for a map to where I was staying, was dangerously low on battery. I started off, and before long, though not without ascending one of Bergen’s steep hills, realized that ... Read more >

Fjord Country

After trying and failing to stay entirely awake on the 6:25 am train out of Oslo my friend and I revived for the most impressive scenery passing the train windows as we climbed higher into the mountains. As we approached approximately 4,000 feet above ... Read more >
