If you are in the planning stages of your wedding and want to include an unforgettable trip to celebrate the whole thing, consider a honeymoon in Norway. This country is surely one of the most beautiful in the world, and the opportunities for romantic encounters with nature and each other will abound there.

To begin with, the common entry port into the country is Oslo, and this region is renowned for its old world charm and beauty. As the most populous area of the country, it is also home to the largest collection of museums and tourist type attractions. It is also where the most urban of the attractions, such as theater and fine dining, the county has to offer resides.

Leaving from Oslo and heading north into the wilder regions, through Sogn and other environs, you can do no better than a nice, long train trip made for two. The train service in Norway is impeccable, and the scenery along the fjords and mountains is nothing short of spectacular. Of course, the opportunities for ship cruises are available as well.

The Norwegian lifestyle is very much about being out of doors as much as the weather allows, so if you two are into activities such as hiking, cross-county skiing, boating, and the like, Norway is a veritable paradise for such sport. Here, being outside is like a national pastime, so the opportunities for it are ubiquitous.

If you have the time and the inclination you can head to the farthest northern reaches above Trondheim and spend time above the Arctic Circle. If it is planned for the right time of the year, you could celebrate around the clock, as this is the land of the midnight sun. The light may never go out on your love, and the scenery, as it is everywhere, is amazing.

Norway is truly beautiful country, and a finer region to celebrate a new life together may not exist anywhere else. A honeymoon in Norway will be one that will be remembered for the ages, and will be as rich in tradition and beauty as the country itself.
