It’s like that airport scene in Love, Actually: no matter where you look in Norway, beauty, actually, is all around you. You really needn’t go far to rest your eyes upon something spectacular—from the country’s endless forests, fjords and mountains to the picturesque cities and the Northern Lights above you. Here are the best places in Norway where you can get the most spectacular views of this breath-taking country.

Trolltunga

Let’s address the elephant in the room first. Or rather, the troll in the fjord: Trolltunga means “troll’s tongue” and is one of the most famous and scenic cliffs in the country, hovering 700 meters (2296 feet) above lake Ringedalsvatnet. It’s a challenging 10-12 hour hike that starts in Skjeggedal and goes through the high mountains, so you need to be mindful of your limits, as well as the weather—it’s not actually recommended to go there from mid-October to March. If you make it, the view will more than make up for it.
