Breathtaking fjords and towering peaks. Rocky islands, plunging waterfalls and shimmering glaciers. A little fresh air, sunshine and nature is good for anyone, anywhere. But here in Fjord Norway, the mere sight of our majestic landscape stirs the soul. It’s no wonder spending a lot of time in the great outdoors comes natural to Norwegians. We even have a word for it: “friluftsliv.”
Friluftsliv, or “open-air living,” is the idea that activity out in nature is revitalizing and energizing for body, mind and soul. Writer Henrik Ibsen popularized the idea in the 1850s but friluftsliv has long been essential to the Norwegian character. Here, it’s a way of life. So join us, and get out and about … and into Fjord Norway’s unrivaled nature!
