Norway - Scandinavian country encompassing mountains, glaciers and deep coastal fjords
Oslo, the capital, is a city of green spaces and museums. Preserved 9th-century Viking ships are displayed at Oslos Viking Ship Museum. Bergen, with colorful wooden houses, is the starting point for cruises to the dramatic Sognafjord. Norway is also known for fishing, hiking and skiing, notably at Lillehammers Olympic resort. There's no better way to see Norway's stunning countryside than by train. Perhaps surprisingly for such a mountainous country, Norway's rail lines stretch more than 2,000 miles, encountering along the way some 775 tunnels and over 3,000 bridges. The best scenic routes begin in Oslo, including the Bergen Railway, which runs over the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.
