Norway Natural Environment
Much of the terrain is high plateaus and mountainous. The average height of the terrain is over 457 m above sea level. Only two lowland areas in the south and southeast lie less than 150 m above sea level. The mountainous plateau area includes the Scandinavian mountain range along the border with

Some would say, "It's really, really cold there..." This is true, but the climate in the country varies depending on the region.
The climate is temperate along the coast, and is colder inland and further north. However, the
The weather along the coast is different from that found inland partly because in the mountains form a barrier to the air currents coming in from the ocean. Therefore, in the summer, when the sea is cooler than the land, the westerly winds make the coast cooler than the inland regions, whereas in the winter, the coast is warmer than inlands because the warm winds from the west are blocked by the mountains.
The west coast has more rainfall with about 200 cm a year in some areas, compared to
Similarly, in winter, in the far north, there is continuous darkness for about 2 months in a year and in the south there is about 6 hours of daylight a day in midwinter. The winter night sky in the north often has displays of the aurora borealis or northern lights.

Mehamn, Farth North Norway, Norway
If you plan to walk to kinaroden, you can still do it by bad weather, but you really have to leave very early as it's quite difficult to find a place to camp on the way. Also, if you're more than one person, you'de bether take the shortest way than turning along way to avoid river crossing. Those rivers are crossable easily. I did it alone, but maybe with more water it can be dangerous. Don't forget a compass, as it can be misty and the cliff are really dangerous. Also don't forget some walking sticks, as the wind can be very powerful and drag you to the cliffs.
Trondheim, Trøndelag (Central Norway), Norway
Oslo, East Norway, Norway
One of the place in the world i can recommend you. Oslo, capital city of Norway. The place is safe, typical scandinavian ambience. Here you can find the famous ski-jumping site, sculpture park ( you can see thousands of sculpture made by one artist only - Vigeland) and many more attractions... we have temperate climate, and nice panorama everywhere.
