One of the most unusual travel destinations available on earth is Norway.  And there are a lot of things to see and do in that unique country.  The official guide to Norway tells about Norway, where to go, what to do, where to stay
 and getting there and around the country. 

Seniors may get a close up glimpse of Norway with this video presentation.  It is a pretty cool site with good graphics and information. Norway Guide  presents the most popular attractions in Norway. Norway is a fantastic country for outdoor activities, like hiking, rafting, fishing and skiing. This site also guides you through the most popular indoor activities and indoor attractions.

VisitOslo.com and VisitNorway.com will provide lots of good information on Oslo as well; some attractions and sites are added here.  Between the Oslofjord and the forests of Marka lies the Norwegian capital. Explore the combination of city life and easy access to the great outdoors on these links.

The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon which means that the sun does not set during the summer months. In other words, given fair weather, you can see the sun for a continuous 24 hours. The duration of the midnight sun depends on how far north you are. At the Arctic Circle in the county

of Nordland, you can see the midnight sun from 12 June to 1 July; at the North Cape in Finnmark you can see the sun from 14 May to 29 July; and at the North Pole the sun does not set for six months.
