When you think of Norway, your first thought is probably of the magnificent scenery of the Fjords, the huge sea-filled valleys that form the nation’s coast. They are one of the geographical wonders of the world and worth a trip just for themselves. But Norway is a vibrant modern country that has so much more to offer visitors.
Finnair serves three airports in Norway, covering the cities of Oslo (OSL), Bergen (BGO), and Tromsø (TOS). Book your flights to Norway with us and come and explore this remote yet thoroughly modern country.
Destinations in Norway served by Finnair
Oslo is Norway’s capital and you will find it a thriving cultural centre with great fashion and shopping and all kinds of restaurants, bars and entertainment. Everything is linked by its large and comprehensive metro system. If you’re an art buff, make sure you see Munch’s famous “The Scream” in the National Gallery. It’s worth getting the Oslo Pass with unlimited visits to many museums, free transport, and restaurant and other discounts.
Norway’s second city, Bergen has a charming centre that spreads around the waterfront known as the gateway to the fjords. The Bergenhus fortress is one of the best-preserved of Norway’s forts and is well worth a visit.
Tromsø is a small city with a big heart and a surprisingly lively social scene with a great reputation for nightlife. It is located in the far north of the country in an attractive bay surrounded by spectacular snow-clad mountains. Due to the extreme north, the days are very short in winter and extremely long in summer.
Typical food and drink in Norway
Norway’s cuisine is defined by its location and climate. Seafood, especially dried fish like salt cod (klippfisk), and rich meat stews are commonplace, as are local fruits and berries. The smoked salmon in Norway is delicious and should definitely be sampled on your visit.
