This photo guide will have you booking the next ticket to Austria (just bring us back some schnitzel, please).
Visiting Norway in the winter was one of the most incredible trips of my life. From seeing the Northern Lights to jumping in an icy cold fjord to dog sledding in the mountains to herding reindeer with the indigenous Sami people to crashing a snowmobile in the Arctic Tundra (because it wouldn’t be me if there’s not at least ONE disaster, right?), here are 35 jaw-dropping photos of Norway in the winter!
