Photos from Norway


Although some medieval texts attribute the name to a mythical King Nórr, it is more widely considered to be derived from Old Norse 'norðvegr', meaning 'the northern route'. The rugged Atlantic coastline is broken by deep, impressive fjords and thousands of islands. The mountainous inland is rich in glaciers and waterfalls.
