Norway – Europe’s Most Beautiful Country

Norway - Europe's Most Beautiful Country

Destination expert Fred Mawer calls Norway “Europe’s most beautiful country” in an article in the British paper The Telegraph on 3 August 2017.

He and his family was on a four-night journey with Hurtigruten, from Tromsø down the Norwegian coast to Bergen. He points out, however, that the voyage was a sedate experience and that a grown-up atmosphere prevailed on board. Even some of the offerings, such as lectures on Ibsen and Grieg, were too highbrow for him during a holiday.

That said, when he claims that Norway is Europe’s most beautiful country, we believe the family’s Norwegian coastal experience, wasn’t a complete waste of time.

“As a contrast to life at sea, add a few nights to the end of your trip in Bergen, a lively and family-friendly place to stay,” says Fred Mawer.
