Our Honeymoon in Norway

Right now I’m sitting in 73 degrees, next to the pool, and I can’t help but wish I was back in New York! Ever since I was a kid, winter was always my favorite season. There is something so pure and magical about the snow. I love cold places with gorgeous mountain views.

When we were picking our honeymoon destination, I immediately vetoed all tropical destinations. Don’t get me wrong – I love sun bathing and lazying around from time to time, but I was raised a mountain girl at heart. I wanted to see views that would take my breath away. This was a once in the lifetime opportunity!

So naturally, my two top picks were Iceland and Norway – both countries I’ve dreamed of visiting ever since I first set eyes on those fjords.

Luckily, my husband loves the mountains just as much as I do. Our winning pick was Norway! We came up with an Itinerary to see some big Southern cities. Since the country is so big, and we were limited on time, we weren’t able to travel north. So we started in Oslo and traveled as far as we could.

Fun fact of the trip: I am obsessed with European chocolate. We picked out a different brand of chocolate every single day. No exaggeration. Luckily, we were moving plenty enough to burn it all off!

Here’s an overview of our trip, hope you love the country as much as I do!

Day 1 – Day 3: Oslo Opera House, the Royal Palace, Frogner Park, Munch Museum, Vigeland Park, the Resistance Museum, and of course… food. The cool thing about Oslo is the historical and fun aspect. There are so many fun, modern things to do, but the city carries lots of legend as well.

Day 3 – 5: Geiranger, a beautiful mountain view town in the middle of nowhere! Some of the most gorgeous views I have ever seen. We got to see the fjords in real life. We also stayed in the most gorgeous Airbnb – so rustic and relaxing!

Day 5 – 7: Alesund, a small city on the coast with some more beautiful views, and great food! We had some relaxing downtime and romantic nights. We hiked all the way up to the Fjellstua Viewpoint, where you could see the whole city and surrounding Islands.

Day 7 – 10: We relaxed in Trondheim, which is a small city primarily known for its nightlife. By the time we got here we were exhausted from all those hikes and decided to lay low in the city!

If you love travelling as much as we do, I highly recommend Norway. It was an experience I’ll never forget. And if you have more time than we did, travel up North for some more serious hikes!

    • Thank you!
      In Oslo the public transportation is very solid so we were able to google map our way around via buses and trains. Our last day there we rented a car and drove up to Geiranger, and used the car for the rest of the trip. You can rent a car in one city and return it to another. There are trains that travel from major cities with very scenic roots, but we wanted to make our own pit stops along the way so we felt a car would be better.
