TOP 10 MUST-SEE PLACES IN NORWAY – A Photographer’s Guide

This is a travel guide to Norway showing the top 10 places you should see if you are visiting. These tips are from a photographer's perspective, but the places are perfectly fine to visit if you are a regular traveler as well.

I have been lucky enough to travel in Norway in recent years as a photographer. That has given me ample knowledge of what Norway has to offer, also outside the most touristy places. This list includes some real hidden gems that you may not have heard of before.

Norway is a fantastic country, and this list could have been much, much more. But these are my favorites, and I'm sure you'll love them too.

The complete list:
1. Senja
1. Varangerhalvøya
1. Femundsmarka
4. Loenvatnet
5. Valdres
6. Hardanger
7. Helgeland
8. Lofoten
9. Nærøyfjorden
10. Jettegrytene i Nissedal

  1. Andenes er absolutt en plass du bør besøke! Jeg er født og oppvokst her, og jeg lover at du ikke vil angre! 😉

  2. Incredible video! Thanks for sharing your favorites! I'll be visiting Senja and Oslo next summer, surprised that Senja is number one, but glad it's shared too. The Lofotens generally outrank it on lists.

  3. I wish you had a video like this for other European countries! I'm trying to plan a holiday over there. This was such a great video!!

  5. Hello Morten … during the entire video, I was asking myself – so what are the specific times to visit to see these scenes under optimal weather conditions for photography

  6. As I am new to Youtube (just uploaded my first vlog), I have a ton to learn. Your video has been a real inspiration with regard to the voice-over skills and the way you designed your video. Pretty amazing! I wish you a lot of luck!

    Igot some to see by boat on the way up to kirkenes and back to bergen – but these places are far more than appetizers 🙂
