Breathtaking view from Bergen! Second biggest city in Norway.

Rule 1: Don’t need to wave and say “hello” to Norwegians. Greetings are considered fake gestures. They rarely greet each other at work.

Art on the street. Fairy tales are alive.

Rule 2: You are not from there and you will feel it at every step. But that’s fine. You will get used with it in a couple of days.

Nice view in Bergen. Colorful trees.

Rule 3: The summertime is during May, June, July. It doesn’t mean it will be hot. Some summer days can be easily turned into cold winter days. Pack your luggage smart. The Viking country is cold and green.

Rule 4: Everyone goes to the Fjords and/ or in the mountain. All you have to experience.

Check my Fjords tour in Bergen and more activities to do there.

Rule 5: Don’t tell to locals that the Fjords are cool but you’ve seen cooler things. It is a National proud. The Fjord tours is the most touristic adventure in Norway. People from all over the world come here because of that. And the good advertising of it, of course.

Rule 6: It is hard to buy any kind of alcohol after 6 pm. There are strict restrictions. The wine should be bought only from e specialized shops till 6 pm again. In the bars and restaurants they can serve you alcohol till late hour but it is quite expensive.

Rule 9: Take with you your credit card. Some of the services can be paid only by credit card and they are automated. For example in the parks, the WC should be paid only with credit card.

Rule 10: In the late hours of the night you will notice the Vikings have bad drunkenness. Be careful. Go out with friends, especially for the ladies! But they have nice clubs and the music is cool.

Rule 11: During the summer, you will enjoy the white nights. Extremely long days. I managed to be in Norway when it didn’t go dark at all for a week. You feel super energized and can spend many hours outside having fun and walking. During the winter it will be cold as hell and dark.

When the day is long, you have time enough to stay on the top of the mountain and just chilling!

Rule 12: Tromso, in Norway, is considered as the best point to watch the Northern lights. They have to be seen during the winter.

Rule 13: Norwegians like trolls, boats, submarines, biking, fish, beer, snow, rain, nature, The North Sea. Don’t ask why. It is just because they are born Vikings.
