Our theory on Norway
Norway is one my favorite places that I’ve visited. The beauty of the Nordic fjords is unreal! If you have extra time in Flåm, take a quick car ride up to Stegastein Viewpoint. Here you’ll find a glass-sided walkway jutting out from the moutainside, 650 meters above the water’s surface, making for stunning views of Aurlandsfjord (and a perfect spot for those Instagrammable pics!)
Traveling to Norway is one of my fondest memories, and I encourage everyone to explore this beautiful country. The dramatic landscapes with fjords and mountainsides are incomparable. There is so much history and incredible culture to take in.
Don’t miss exploring Bryggen, Bergen’s historical harbor (and World Heritage Site) – incredible food and charming shops!
