When it comes to tourist attractions, you’ll definitely be spoilt for choice while you’re in Norway. However, if you are time barred there are two destinations you dare not miss out on.
The North Cape can only be described in one word “breathtaking”. Little wonder why it’s the destination of choice for most tourists who visit northern Scandinavia every year. With 250 thousand visitors every year, this is one destination you cannot afford to miss out on. The lush sceneries, unusual climate as well as the spectacular cliff make for an unforgettable hiking destination that you can enjoy with both friends and family. The Northern Cape is a cliff standing 307 meters and is widely accepted as Europe’s northern point.
Found near the coastline in western Norway, the Geirangerfjord features spectacular waterfalls that hit the fjord on both sides.

You best bet for touring Norway is by use of a self drive car. You can get one using the service of a car hire agency.

We rented a car at the airport, have been 45 minutes late from the cruise ship and the whole airport of narvik is closed in the morning. with the help of the taxi driver we get in contact with sixt and at the end we've got an upgrade by the car good recommendations for daytours and everybody was happy... the real sixt car rental was just near the ship, but we didn't know, so we went to the airport and lost all in all nearly two hours.
