Norway has long been a “sustainability trailblazer,” according to a leading travel consultant- Here’s four examples of Norway’s sustainable travel destinations.
Norway is a special place, for more than one reason. It is home to some of the most staggering views, and is an all-in-all outdoor destination for travellers. One of the highlights in Norway is of course the fjords, which are basically long, and deep bodies of water. Norway has about 1190 fjords in total, all of which are outstandingly beautiful.But, of course, you would require a very long vacation to cover them all. So, here Times of India has listed the top ones for you. The most popular, most visited, the most beautiful of them all.
A kingdom in Scandinavia stretching up into the Arctic circle, Norway is a truly magical country to visit. Known for its stunningly scenic fjords, other famous landmarks in Norway include the Nobel Peace Centre, the most remote island in the world and a curiously-named village called Hell. And thanks to Norway, Japan has a fresh salmon supply introduced to Japanese cooking for sushi and sashimi in the 1980s. Europe’s largest herd of wild reindeer roams Norway’s Hardangervidda, a gigantic mountain plateau. Known to rest of the world as Norway, the land is called Norge or Noreg by natives.
