There are hundreds of beautiful attractions to experience in Norway. If you haven’t taken a holiday in Norway, here are my top four reasons to make this year the year you visit.

Jostedal Glacier National Park
The Briksdal Glacier starts 1200 meters above the lush and green Briksdal Valley and is one of the most beautiful and awe inspiring sights in all of Europe. Excellent food, drink and lodging can be found at the base of the glacier. The pictures you take in the early morning light will delight your friends and family.
