Honeymoons in Scandinavia
Honeymoons in Norway
For breathtaking scenery, look no further than to Norway for your honeymoon. Spectacular mountains, glaciers, fjords and waterfalls are this country’s prime attractions, and skiing is possible all year round. Tradition is important to Norwegians, and you may well have to chance to discover typical folk customs and dance during your honeymoon.
Olso is the oldest capital city in Scandinavia, and harmoniously blends ancient and modern architecture. The city is refreshingly low-key, and has many museums, monuments and parks to visit. One of its main attractions is the Akershus Fortress and Castle, which were built around 1300. The castle includes extravagantly decorated rooms, dungeons, a Royal Chapel and Resistance Museum. During the summer months, concerts, dances and plays are performed here.
Just ten minutes by ferry from Oslo is the Bygdoy peninsula, which has some outstanding historical attractions. These include an open air folk museum, excavated Viking ships and restored stave churches.
South of Olso on Norway’s southern coast stands Risor, a highly picturesque village whose white painted houses and traditional harbor exude a timeless charm. Fishing is key to the livelihood of many Norwegians, and a visit here is perfect to discover the way of life of the country’s inhabitants.
Bergen, a historic city of red-tiled buildings, is an excellent base if you intend to spend your honeymoon discovering Norway’s spectacular natural landscapes. A stunning national park, snow-capped mountains, awe-inspiring glaciers and much more are all within easy reach. To experience Norwegian music and culture, head to the lively town of Tromso, which has a picturesque mountainous backdrop.
On your Norwegian honeymoon you will discover a land of overwhelming natural beauty, whose inhabitants are justly proud of their distinct history and culture.
