Norway is one of the more expensive places in the world, and it’s also rich in natural wonders. Its treasures include vibrant fjords that burst out of the shimmering sea, towering waterfalls that gush out of mountainsides, and a front row seat to the mystical northern lights.

Add to that attractions such as Pulpit Rock where visitors can test their nerve by hanging over a ledge 2,000 feet above the fjords and being home to one of the world’s most scenic railways, and it’s no wonder adventurers make a beeline for the Scandinavian country at any cost.

Here are 30 Norway pictures that will have you packing your bags, at any cost.

Stavanger

From the perfectly-preserved, whitewashed homes that dot the hillside to the peaceful parks and lively waterfront, Stavanger is the perfect spot for photographers looking to snap some Norway photos.

The district of Øvre Holmegate has shops, restaurants and cafes painted with just about every hue in the rainbow, Gamle Stavanger is home to Europe’s highest concentration of wooden houses, and the promenade in Vågen is lined with brightly painted wooden wharf houses.

Stavanger is also to the gateway to Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) in the Lysefjord, a plateau that juts out of the mountain a dizzying 604 metres above the sea and is one of the most popular Norway Instagram spots.

Flåm

This waterfront village is so picturesque, it’s said to have inspired the backdrops in the popular Disney movie Frozen. A colourful row of traditional wooden buildings line the quiet harbour, surrounded by towering fjords and snow-capped peaks. Head out on a fjord safari to enjoy the stunning scenery that’s regularly showcased in photos of Norway, and keep an eye out for wildlife like golden eagles, seals, porpoises, lynx and even wolverines.

Another scenic adventure is to take what’s ranked among the world’s most spectacular train journeys: the Flåm Railway. The Flåmsbana climbs 866 metres in just one hour, treating passengers to breathtaking views of the surrounding Aurlandsfjord, mountains and waterfalls. Enjoy a round-trip journey, continue past Myrdal to explore areas like Voss, or cycle all the way back down to Flåm.
