Norwegians boldly claim that they live amongst the most comfortable and interesting places to see the northern lights. That’s important to know since experiencing the unbelievable colours that move across the Arctic sky is on many travelers’ bucket lists. Few places on earth offer more ways to witness the aurora borealis than Norway.
The Midnight Sun Isn't a Different Sun.
During winter, northern Norway has polar nights; a period where the sun never rises above the horizon and you have 24 hours of darkness. During summer, however, it’s the exact opposite; the sun never sets. You might have heard of the midnight sun before but this is not a different sun as some tend to believe. It’s just the same sun as during the rest of the year but it doesn’t go down causing the country to get 24 hours of daylight.
Norway is Green.
The country had the fourth highest per capita income in the world, based on the World Bank and IMF lists. Norway powers its economy from oil and gas, but it doesn’t power their homes. Almost all of in fact, 98-99% of Norway’s domestic power usage is drawn from hydroelectric power, more than any other country.
How interesting is this fact? The fancy Voss water is just water from the municipal water supply aka. pipe water from Iveland, Norway.
The Norwegian Krone.
The currency used is the Norwegian Krone, although they do accept Euros.
Always Bring an Extra Layer of Clothes.
The climate varies a lot from country part to country part, and there can be large variations within the separate regions as well There’s no reason to stay indoors when you’re in Norway. Always pack an extra layer of clothes and it’s wise to bring a rain jacket and a fleece.
Norway has the Best Salmon.
It’s true, Norway has the best salmon. In fact, it was Norwegians who introduced the Japanese to Salmon Sushi in the 1980’s. That’s how good their salmon is. While salmon isn’t cheap, make sure that you have at least one proper salmon meal even if you’re traveling on a budget.
The country’s wildlife ranges from polar bears in Svalbard, to moose, musk oxen, whales, wolves, bears, eagles and massive herds of reindeer. For a nature lover, Norway is nothing short of spectacular.

Grab Your Free 2019 December Social Media Monthly Calendar And Crush Your Holiday Marketing.
Planning your content calendar is tough enough during the year, but as the holiday approaches things can get more intense. For some #bossbabes, the months between October right up until Christmas represents over 50% of annual sales, for others, the percentage is much more. How do you plan content for the holidays?
Let’s get started with the understanding about the timing of your planning.When to start?I recommend planning your holiday content strategy 12 months before the holidays.Say What??!!I know that sounds really far fetched but think about it; there is really no better time to rationalise the kind of content that will have the most impact with your audience than directly after the season’s end. The period between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day is often best.Not only can you scan the feeds you love for inspiration (they will be filled with all kinds of relevant seasonal content) but the quiet days after Christmas allow for reflection, the essence of what content planning is all about.Now the process does not have to be intense, it’s the holidays after all, but you can scribble notes, story ideas and relevant sites in the early sections of your Social Media Planner. That way you’re sure to remember and begin your execution strategy by mid-year Yes, that soon!There’s nothing wrong with getting the holiday conversation going early. Start hinting at it by thinking about what you’ll be selling and how you can align your captions, graphic cards, stories, images and even your videos with your key sales objectives. Remember, as I keep preaching, connections matter first, then the sale.“Ok, but what should you do now?I’ve got you.
