The capital, Oslo
A place where Norwegian cultural roots can be seen and appreciated by everyone is in the capital, Oslo. Oslo is known for its museums; with more than fifty, there is something for everyone. They range from modern art to Viking history. In addition to museums, there is also plenty of nature to be found and enjoyed around the capital. There are countless hiking opportunities in the immediate vicinity and Oslo is also located on the Oslofjord. The Oslofjord is ideal for island hopping. For example, you could visit one of the six islands in the fjord: Vippetangen, Hovedøya, Lindøya, Nakholmen, Bleikøya, Gressholmen or Langøyene. They vary in size and facilities and are perfect for a day trip.
In addition to the breathtaking nature, Norway is also rich in culture, think of the famous Vikings, Norse mythology and the Sami. The Sami culture is known for their love of reindeer, colorful clothing and traditional handmade products. The Vikings are known as traders, farmers and sea warriors with impressive ships. The culture is not as influential as it once was, but the Viking spirit still lives in the Norwegian population and lives on in several Norwegian museums and villages.
