Norway – A Paradise for Nature Lovers
Encompassing snow-covered mountains and glaciers, Norway is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. The Scandinavian country is the richest and among the least densely populated nations in Europe. Travelers from all around the world visit this popular cruising destination to experience skiing, fishing, and hiking. While the deep coastal fjords presenting stunning visuals are Norway’s center of attraction, the vast evergreen forests near the Swedish border and the coastal plains in the southwest are also amazing crowd-pullers. Tourist spots are scattered across Norway and thus, travelers prefer to rent a car which saves a substantial amount of time, money and effort while adding convenience and comfort.
