Norway is one of the most unique incredible rugged countries in the whole world. Norway is one of the wettest countries in the whole world. These are the most incredible places in Norway you have to see to believe you.
The first location is the Nigardsbreen Glacier. This glacier lives about 19 miles north of the village guap. Nigardsbreen Glacier is actually an arm of the largest glacier in continental Europe called the jaw style Verena glacier. To get to the glacier a small boat will transport you to the face with you across the palest most turquoise blue glacier water. You have ever seen in your whole life from the forests to the base of the glacier. You have about a 30-minute hike. Once you get to the base of the glacier you’re kitted out with crampons and ice pick and a harness.
It is impossible to climb ice without crampons and they actually come with the guide and I’ll have all that information down below once you start climbing. It’s about eight hours in total from the top to the bottom of this glacier. The pieces of ice, the size of buildings moving and breaking and it felt like living off things. Its massive living things. If you want to climb this glacier you have to act fast because in a matter of a few short years this glacier won’t even be here.
The next location is the Langfossen Falls which translates to long at the waterfall. This waterfall is less of an activity and more of just an attraction mean you’re driving down the highway out of nowhere. You hear this noise this rumbling noise, then you see the mist. You turn the corner and you see the largest most menacing waterfall on earth. This waterfall is over 2,000 feet high. The world waterfall database declared this waterfall to be one of the best in the world that’s got to tell you something.
I drove past this waterfall on my ways – boss swears I did some whitewater river kayaking. Langfossen Falls is the perfect place if you’re on a long road trip in Norway – just pull over to the side of the road, have some food enjoy the beauty and just kind of take it in because it is a quite good sight.
The next location tries to pronounce this word yeah there’s very very long. The region word translates to Atlantic Ocean Road now it is known as the world’s most dangerous road. Just because during the wintertime there are very strong storms that go through this area. When I did this drive was actually a beautiful sunny day so I think it to experience it in the storm and the craziness. But still, I could imagine it can be pretty menacing in the storm. It is eight total bridges long and eight thousand two hundred and seventy-four meters. And this is the biggest tip. If you are going to Norway you make videos and you take photos. Invest in the drone, the drone is not one way to really really see this country.
Deep in the Mountains of Western Norway to our next location. I have never seen a place that was so won a major stomach drop about to break down that steep. Its bite course in the whole world. This is one of those life moments where you feel so alive but at the same time, you’re like should I be doing this. Like that just because of how steep the road is. If you’re going down that road on a bike in you’re at the edge and you make a wrong turn. You’re going over the edge and you’re falling thousands of feet down to the ground.
It is a straight cliff drop down to the valley. This road is the hardest and highest bike climb in the entire world. Twelve point two kilometers of this ride is at a grueling 7% incline. The view from the top is just you can’t even put into words how breathtaking and just bashed this view is off into the distance. The most extreme place I’ve ever been to. The landscape is just I look at this there were certain points where I hit 60 kilometers per hour.
I cannot highly recommend enough going to this place. It is breathtaking in every aspect of the word. Literally, it will take your breath away especially if you were biking up it or you’re biking down. Trollstiger Road is a must if you’re going to Northwestern Norway. You have to see this place go on up on a bike is the most grueling thing I’ve ever experienced but going down shore feels good.
The next location on our list I have never seen anything like this it is something out of a novel or a film. It will blow your mind the next location and probably the most interesting place on this list is the world’s strongest world located in the Northland. This is the strongest tidal current in the entire world. These whirlpools were so large that they could swallow boats. We were to get close enough to the whirlpool. You could actually feel it dragging the boat into it up to 400 million tons of seawater forced their way through a three kilometer long and only 150 meters wide straight.
Every six hours with the time water speeds reached 37 km/h at the peak of the world pool but no really I’ve never seen currents this fast. And there’s actually whirlpools like when you flush a toilet that’s what we have except times a thousand. The whirlpools themselves are huge some can be up to 10 meters in diameter and reach 5 meters deep in the heart of the vortex. Five meters deep now on the data I was there they were not nearly that big but I couldn’t even imagine seeing a whirlpool that big and that powerful. Because they do get that big.
Out of the list of incredible things in places in Norway is the Midnight Sun. The strangest thing was watching the Sun go down and having it just hover right above the horizon. It was set about midnight just kind of hang there and then it would start to rise at 1:00 a.m. The Midnight Sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs in the summer month in places north of the Arctic Circle. But actually, the Midnight Sun can occur almost 50 miles away from the circle but not quite as high your body clock is.
So thrown out of whack because imagine you are as tired as can be but it is light out it’s the strangest just most bizarre thing. The Sun just dips down low enough below the horizon where it’s like sunset for two hours straight and then it pops right back up at about two. Maybe 145 really strange but kind of cool and there you have it that is my list of the most incredible places.
