    Oslo and Bergen

    It depends on your tastes...are you an outdoors person or prefer to stick to cities? If you're visiting Norway for the first time, the cities of Oslo and Bergen are great introductions to the country. These two cities boasts a ton of cool attractions such as Frogner Park, Akershus Fortress, Norsk Folkmuseum in Oslo; and the Floibanen Funicular and Fish Market in Bergen. The ride on the funicular is really as it takes you to the top of the Floien Mountain where you can enjoy the most amazing views of mountains, the fjords and the sea.

    I'd definitely like to take the funicular to the mountain top. Seen plenty of pics and it looks like a lot of fun. Along with the ride and the annual festival in Bergen, I'd like to visit the palace, cathedral, and museums in Trondheim.

    must sees in Norway

    you gotta see the fjords and the arctic circle...Norway is filled with gorgeous glaciers, mountains and fjords like the stunning Maurangefjord, which you can drive down to see a gorgeous waterfall that in and of itself makes the trek worthwhile.

    A few other must sees are the Vigelandsparken Sculpture Park in Oslo, Solastranda Beach (outside Stavanger), Nidarosdomen Cathedral in Trondheim, the Island of Soroya in Hammerfest

    Definitely the fjords and the arctic circle! So much to see. I like traveling by train and thought the Flam Railway would be a great addition.
