About Norway and Oslo

Norway

Norway is a once-in-a-lifetime destination and the essence of its appeal is remarkably simple: this is one of the most beautiful countries on earth.

 Norway is the land of the midnight sun, with a mild, pleasant summer season. Oslo has a more pleasant climate than its latitude should indicate, due to a favourable help from the Gulf Stream, and it is well protected from Atlantic rainfall by mountains. The chosen dates are September 4-6, 2015. In early September, the temperature is normally very pleasant in Oslo, even though the evenings might tend to be crisp. 

Oslo, the capital of Norway, lies beautifully situated between the captivating Oslo fjord and the beautiful Oslomarka. This combination of city life and short distance to outdoors activities makes Oslo a great destination for any traveller.

Norway’s majestic mountains plunging into the sea, glittering fjords, luminous northern lights, the midnight sun and tall mountain peaks have all contributed to making Norway well known internationally.

Its easy to experience endless rivers, powerful waterfalls, green forests as well as bustling city life in Norway - a combination highly appreciated both among the Norwegians themselves and the visitors to this unique country.
