Backpacking Norway alone as a woman is the best way to explore the country for several reasons. Probably the most important reason is that Norway is one of the safest countries for solo travel in the world. The second is its unique, one-of-a-kind nature that offers magnificent vistas and clean environment.

I left Bergen with a feel of sweet anticipation.

To stay in a fjord hotel in Norway, in a place which is as much as possible remote, was one of my dreams…

I visited these cities during my two weeks trip in Norway. As the country is one of the most expensive destinations in Europe, I guess you may prefer to shorten your tour. Chose from these cities or go and see them all!

To reach Fjaerland isn’t easy. The journey might take all day and requires a use of several modes of transport. But when, at the end of this long day, you finally arrive in the small village modestly occupying several hills in the valley of the largest glacier in Europe, your heart will stop beating. And you will ask yourself: “How can this place really exist?”
