15 Photos That Show Norway’s Breathtaking Sights

Norway MUST BE in your bucket list!

Norway is a beautiful country home to majestic fjords, mountains and glaciers, which make them the perfect place when you want to capture breathtakingly gorgeous landscape views. Its dramatic nature scenes make it one of the favorite spots for photographers. Aside from fjords, the Northern lights and the summer sun give the place the magnificent feel that can easily make you decide that Norway should undoubtedly be included in your bucket list.

Norway is also called the Land of the Midnight Sun since the sun never really sets below the horizon, especially in summer. The Scandinavian country usually sees up to 20 hours of sunlight but when winter comes, the period of darkness extends. Whether it’s night or day, Norway offers equally picturesque views of nature.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to live in the northernmost settlement in the world? Well, wonder no more! Welcome to Alert, a small Canadian community located just a little more than 800 kilometers away from the North Pole.

Alert is situated on the northeastern tip of Ellesmere Island in Nunavut, Canada. The place is so isolated that its nearest Canadian neighbors are more than two thousand kilometers away. It has closer neighbors in Greenland though, which is located just about 540 kilometers south. And since Alert lies so close to the North Pole, it could not connect with communication satellites.
