Norway is a Nordic country that’s part of the Scandinavia region of Europe. It’s famous for its mountainous landscape and its stunning fjords as well as its wildly welcoming people.

The landscape of Norway is wonderfully diverse. From the snow-covered mountains to the west coast fjords, a campervan trip around Norway takes you on a varied trip through different seasons and geography. The country has the highest concentration of fjords in the world, with the most famous being Geirangerfjord – widely considered to be the most beautiful of its kind in the world.

On the other end of the spectrum are Norway’s cities. Oslo and Bergen, in particular, are worth the trip, hosting some of the best food, culture, and sights in the world.
