Built in 1873, it was designed by Ole Bull himself, supervised by Conrad Fredrik von der Lippe, a professional architect. The style is, to say the least, eclectic: Russian, Swiss, Moorish... Too costly to maintain, it was donated by Bull's grand-daughter to Society for the Preservation of Ancient Norwegian Monuments (Fortidsminneforeningen).

Driving along the Atlantic Road is like teetering on the edge of the sea. This road has been heralded as one of the most spectaculars roads in the world by the dangerousroads.org users. The road’s roller coaster-feel, curvy bridges and phenomenal views have made it a favorite of road trippers and motorcyclists. It was also designated a Cultural Heritage Site, is considered a National Tourist Route, and has been recognized as the Norwegian Construction of the Century.

Located in the midwest part of the Norwegian coastline, the Atlantic Road, has a length of 8274 meters. The road links the towns of Kristiansund and Molde, the two main population centers in the county of Møre og Romsdal in Fjord Norway.

The aurora borealis, or commonly known as Northern lights has been fascinating travelers to Norway and locals alike for generations.

Each appearance of the northern lights is unique. Often you see three green bands across the night sky. Or the lights come as flickering curtains or rolling smoke. The colour is a luminous green, often with a hint of pink along the edge, and occasionally with a deep violet centre. The colour palette seems to come from the 1980s.

If there is a lot of activity up there, the northern lights explode for a minute or two in a corona. The next minute it is all over, and you ask yourself whether this was real or just an Arctic fata morgana.

You cannot stop watch nature’s own theater unfold above you as the most spectacular light show takes center stage: The northern lights with you in the front row.

This magnificient light show can take many forms and in colors. Here we collected nine photos of Northern lights which were taken mostly in Northern Norway. Enjoy it!

The iconic Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) rises 1970 feet above the Lysefjord. Every year millions of people take the hike and enjoy the exciting and spectacular views.

Preikestolen is a mountain formed like a huge pulpit towering over the Lysefjord in Rogaland, Fjord Norway.

There is a crack between the plateau of Pulpit Rock and the mountain, and it is said that on the day seven sisters marry seven brothers from the Lysefjord area, the plateau will tear itself away from the mountain and fall into the fjord, creating a huge wave that will destroy all life in the surrounding area.
You’ve been warned. There is a well prepared track from Preikestolen Mountain Lodge to the top of the 604-metre-high mountain plateau. Expect to spend four-five hours hiking from the lodge to the top and back down, and allow an hour or two to spend on the plateau.
