Land of the Midnight Sun

Norway is a haven for holidaymakers who enjoy the outdoors, with numerous resorts for downhill skiing and snowboarding, as well as countless trails for hiking in the summer or dog sledding and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Meanwhile, traditional ways of life, local customs, and crafts are celebrated in many open-air and ethnological museums across the land.
