If you’re like most people, you really enjoy having the opportunity to travel to other parts of the world. After all, this is a fun way to experience other cultures and see things that you would never have an opportunity to see if you only travel locally. One of the most popular destinations involves Norwegian travel. It’s relatively easy to understand why so many people would choose this area for their vacations, especially when you consider the natural beauty of the area. Having the opportunity to experience a different culture only adds to the value of taking such a vacation.

Below are five of the most popular Norwegian island destinations that you might decide to travel to. Chances are, if you manage to make one of these trips, you won’t want to come back when the trip is over.

1. Lofoten

This is easily one of the most beautiful natural areas that you’ll ever come across. Tall, majestic peaks covered with beautiful, lush green grass meet crystal clear waters. In this area, you have the opportunity to see one of the most famous peaks in the country. In addition, you can also enjoy some history at the Viking Museum, located nearby. One of the best things about visiting this particular location is that it gives you the opportunity to do several things in one general vicinity, making it a family-friendly destination.

2. North Cape

It’s hard to describe the beauty of this particular destination. All of the beauty that is ever-present throughout different parts of Norway seem to come together, converging on this one location. Wonderful, tall cliffs fall away to reveal the ocean’s waters. There’s even an outdoor cinema in this area, giving people the chance to watch a movie while they’re out in nature. It’s one of the most surreal locations you’re likely to ever visit, and it’s also one that you will want to come back to again and again.

3. Preikestolen

If you love the outdoors and you’re a fairly adventurous person, this is the perfect destination for you. Here, you can hike on trails that seem like they are virtually endless. If you prefer, you can take the adventure factor up a few notches and do some hiking off-trail. There are also plenty of challenging cliffs that you can climb if that is the type of thing that you’re into. The area gives you the opportunity to camp, so you can enjoy your adventures during the day, set up a tent, and then take on some new adventures in the morning. If you’re looking for a peaceful location to have your own adventures, you’ll be hard-pressed to find anything better than this area.

4. Geirangerfjord

If you want to see some beautiful glaciers, this area offers some of the most pristine examples around. You also have the chance to see majestic waterfalls and do some kayaking of your own. There are few things more peaceful than having the chance to go kayaking in some of the most beautiful waters that you could ever imagine. It’s so outstanding, it might even seem surreal. If you haven’t experienced the area before, you have no idea what you’re missing out on because mere words can scarcely describe how beautiful this place really is.

5. Bryggen

This area gives you the opportunity to experience Norwegian culture at its best. It’s one of the older villages in the area, with direct access to a wharf. If you really want to have the opportunity to interact with individuals who are native to the area, as well as see what the villages look like for yourself, this is a place that you absolutely have to stop at. Your Norwegian vacation wouldn’t be complete without seeing this area first hand.

Now that you know about some of these beautiful locations, all you have to do is make up your mind that you’re going to find a way to get there. This just might be one of the best vacations that you’ve ever had. Earlier, it was mentioned that once you visit the area, it’s unlikely that you’ll ever be ready to leave. You just might be surprised how hard it is to pull yourself away and go back to your former life. On the other hand, you might make the decision that you aren’t ever leaving and decide to make your home there. One thing is certain, if you visit the area you will indeed be forever changed for the better.
