The motherland of all Scandinavia and the culture that gave the roots to the first Viking society. The nation with the constitutional right to roam for all humans, known as Allemannsretten. And finally, the mecca for nature lovers with two-thirds of their land covered with mountains, and where off its much-indented coastline lie, carved by deep fjords, some 50,000 islands, a large part of which is known as the Lofoten Islands.

It helds the northernmost point in Europe
Cape Nordkinn is the northernmost point on the Nordkinn Peninsula in Troms og Finnmark county, Norway. It is notable for being the northernmost point of mainland Norway and by extension the northernmost point of mainland Europe.
One of the longest coastlines in the world!
The official length was recalculated in 2011 as 100,915 km, including fjords and islands. If stretched out, this would circle the world two and a half times! Without islands, the length is a still-impressive 28,953 km.
They have a constitutional right to roam in the nature
It's called Allemannsretten (meaning "everyman's right") and it is a law that allows everyone to roam free on uncultivated land in Norway. It also means that you are allowed to camp almost anywhere, as long as you'll respect nature and private properties. We love it!
Powered by hydroelectric power plants
Norway's oil and gas industry has powered the economy, but it doesn't power the nation's homes. Around 98% of Norway's domestic power usage is drawn from hydroelectric power plants.
