Places to visit in Norway
The entire country of Norway is encompassed with glaciers, mountains, coastal fjords. It is one amongst the other Scandinavian countries. People might think about it as a place where it goes to extreme temperatures during the winters and the season during the summer has a temperature of around only 20 degree Celsius. Well, if you are someone who thinks the same way, I should say that you need to change that perspective, my friend. Below are some of the most exotic places that you can visit only when you are in Norway.
Mount Floyen: The entire mountain stretch is around 399 meters from which one can view the city of Bergen perfectly. People visiting for the first time can take a train that travels the entire stretch with an approximate time of travel being 8 minutes.
