The capital city of Oslo is as vibrant as they come, but if you prefer you can take a trip to snowy mountains and stunning gorges. This is known for being the Land of the Midnight Sun, where the days never end and the sun is permanently in the sky during some parts of the year, and it is also one of the places in the world where you can spot the northern lights, one of the most spectacular natural light shows on earth.

Norway is one of the most affluent countries in Europe, so you can expect high quality facilities if you travel here such as a good range of public transport options. Norway is also known for being incredibly safe, so it’s a good option for solo female travelers who can travel around the country with ease.
