Northern Lights: 13 Dazzling Norway Discoveries

Known for its expansive mountainous landscapes, oil exports, and being a leader in the Winter Olympic Games, the Kingdom of Norway is also a pioneer in organizational office supplies, as it gave the world the paperclip in the early 20th century! Paperclip claim aside, the country of Norway is filled with stunning natural scenery, charming fishing villages, and the entrancing northern lights, or aurora borealis. To celebrate these Norwegian wonders, we’ve assembled stunning Scandinavian sights from across the Kingdom of Norway.
