Norway – Introduction

Flying in Norway
Flying in Norway

In February, I want to show you winter pictures. I wanted to keep sunny places during winter, but a few weeks ago I visited Norway and fell in love with its magical winter.

If you don’t like winter or feel already tired of it, I’ll try to convince you in 2 ways.
First, snow may be really lovely and offers so much fun (wait for more pictures in February – they’ll prove it!).
Second, if the first point doesn’t work, you know, in some places there is polar night, so people don’t see the Sun for a few months. When was the last time you saw the Sun? 😉

Let’s focus on Norway. Have you been to Norway, especially in winter? What comes to your mind when you think about Norway?
I think about fjords, amazing nature and comparably high prices… Scandinavia is not a cheap destination, but there is something relatively cheap about it. From many places in Europe you can find cheap flights to Oslo, and then flying from Oslo to other farther Norwegian towns is also relatively inexpensive!

If you want to use Oslo just as stopover, it’s a good idea! You can stay in one of the hotels nearby the airport. I can recommend you Comfort Hotel RunWay that’s just a few minutes by shuttle bus from Oslo Airport (Gardermoen).
Actually, it’s also a great place for business travelers. Comfort Hotel RunWay is located together with Clarion Hotel & Congress Oslo Airport, and The Qube (new convention center); they all can accommodate almost 10 thousands people. The Comfort Hotel RunWay comprise a very modern with the typical Norwegian style. Expect lovely colored and wood lining hallways and guest rooms.

W lutym, dla odmiany, pokażę Wam zimowe zdjęcia. Początkowo, zamierzałam w zimowe miesiące pokazać kilka słonecznych miejsc. Jednak kilka tygodni temu, wybrałam się do Norwegii, gdzie zimowe krajobrazy skradły moje serce. 🙂

Jeżeli nie lubicie zimy i już macie jej dość, to mimo wszystko, spróbuję Was do niej przekonać na dwa sposoby.
Po pierwsze, śnieg może być magiczny i zapewnia mnóstwo frajdy (poczekacie na więcej lutowych zdjęć – powinny Was przekonać).
A po drugie (jeżeli powyższe nie zadziała), pomyślcie o wszystkich którzy żyją w strefie nocy polarnej i nie widzą słońca przez kilka miesięcy. Kiedy ostatnio widzieliście słońce?

Skupmy się na Norwegii. Byliście w Norwegii, szczególnie zimą? Co przychodzi Wam na myśl gdy myślicie o Norwegii?
Mi Norwegia kojarzy się z fiordami, piękną przyrodą i dość wysokimi cenami… Skandynawia nie jest tanim miejscem do życia/podróżowania, ale jest tam coś względnie taniego. Z wielu miejsc w Europie można dość tanio dolecieć do Oslo, a następnie loty z Oslo do innych norweskich miast też są względnie tanie!

Jeżeli myślicie aby potraktować Oslo jako miejsce na przesiadkę, przed dalszym zwiedzaniem Norwegii, to jest to bardzo dobry pomysł! Bez problemu znajdziecie hotel w pobliżu lotniska. Polecam Wam Comfort Hotel RunWay, do którego, w kilka minut, dowiezie Was autobus z lotniska Oslo Gardermoen.
Ten hotel, również idealnie nadaje się gdy podróżujecie służbowo. Comfort Hotel RunWay jest usytuowany razem z Clarion Hotel i Congress Oslo Airport oraz The Qube. Wszystkie razem oferują wiele miejsc noclegowych i sali konferencyjnych różnych rozmiarów.

  1. No i wreszcie kraj dla mnie. Niby mam braki witaminy D, ale i tak marzę o nocy polarnej… Choć może po jednej takiej już by mi się odechciało.
    Czekam na te fiordy, lodowce i inne zimowe atrakcje 🙂

  2. This is an awesome photo! The colours and the aspect are stunning. I see the sun almost every day of the year due to our proximity to the Tropic of Capricorn. I can’t image a polar night.

    1. Polar night is not so scary, but I think it brings a bit wrong impressions, later I’ll tell more about it! 🙂

  3. I look forward to seeing Norway through your eyes. I have a friend from there and I have been reading a lot about their system of government with its combination of socialism and democracy. A very interesting country with much natural beauty and very resilient people.

    1. That’s a very interesting country, also from political reasons!
      I hope you can visit your friend in Norway, one day!

    1. czułam, że będzie kilka wyzwań 🙂
      druga połowa miesiąca będzie specjalnie w tym celu! 🙂

  4. Oh, Norway 🙂
    I, as you, think of fjords, northern lights, amazing nature and very high prices, followed by Edvard Munch and some of my favorite bands that originate from there. I so much want to visit Norway for a road trip along the coast from Oslo to Nordkapp and combine in with a music festival. One summer sometime 🙂

    I am looking forward to your photos!

    1. That’s a great idea with a road trip!
      First time, I was in Norway a long time ago, saw “Scream” and met many people who came there just because of bands! 🙂

  5. Great photo! I don’t know if you’re still in Norway? If you are, I recommend renting a car, and driving around to non-tourist locations. The countryside is extraordinary beautiful, in any direction..maybe you’ve already done that 🙂 I hope you had/have a great time.

  6. A beautiful photo. I’d dearly love to go to Norway. I imagine it looks amazing at any time of year. 😀

  7. I heard it said in Alaska, ” Your snow beautiful”

    I do like snow and look forward to your pictures. I would love to visit Norway as I have a friend there. Still dreaming of reuniting with her.

    1. That’s a very good idea to go to Norway, and it’s always nice when we can meet our old friends 🙂

  8. Now I’m feeling slightly envious. 🙂 Not for the snow- you can have my share. But I’ve wanted to see the fjords for as long as I can remember. It’s my ‘when I’m too old to walk and join the cruise set’ place 🙂
