Norway Beauty Shots: Stunning Landscapes

There’s no doubt about it – Norway is one of the most strikingly beautiful destinations in the world. So it should come as no surprise that I’m showing her off glamour shots style. Those sheer face cliffs, the mystique, the emerald greens and glacial blues, a hint of danger… the makings of a Maxim NatGeo Hot 100 chart topper. *sizzle*

Touring the Scandinavian stunner on wheels meant we got to capture winning images at our leisure (hooray for roadside lookouts!) not to mention the knockout views we came upon time and again during our epic hikes.

The variety and sheer grandeur of scenery in fjord Norway – from lush valleys to icy peaks – had us doing double takes. At times it felt like Switzerland or Ireland, and even extraterrestrial Iceland. Her shifty landscape personas kept us on the edge of our seats thinking, “What’s next around the craggy bend?”

The cheeky siren she is, Norway didn’t disappoint but left us wishing for more.
