Norway is about as picture perfect as it gets, and in recent months it’s surely moved up to the top of the family vacation bucket list. It’s a nearly impossible task to accurately describe the natural beauty of the majestic fjords, the rich verdant landscape, the blinding white snowcapped peaks, the charismatic villages, stark urban design, and fresh air so crisp you want to spend hours just breathing it in.

Certainly not for the faint of heart when budget is concerned, but once you go you completely agree it was worth the spend.
