About Bed & Breakfasts in Norway
There are no typical bed and breakfast properties in Norway. The closest to that type of lodging are private rooms and pensions that are usually referred to as rom or husrom in Norwegian. This type of bed and breakfast is ideal for budget concerned travelers. Despite being low-cost accommodations pensions and private rooms are always very clean, comfortable and centrally located. They are located mainly in cities but such type of B&B is also found in the countryside. Being close to the every day life of Norwegians, having the opportunity to taste original local food and to sleep in the homes of these gentle people will make every tourist understand and really appreciate this magnificent country.
Norway is located on the most North-West part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Its most famous hallmarks are the fjords and the Arctic sun. At the very north of the country which is sparsely populated is located the remarkable town of Tromso where during the summer the sun never sets and during the winter the sun never rises. In the opposite direction to the south-west of Norway is the rugged coast of the country, home to the renowned fjords - these are U-shaped valleys formed a long time ago by sliding glaciers that later on have been filled with water and have formed narrow long bays with steep sides. Fjords are quite a spectacular sight. Norway also takes pride in having vast areas of national parks with unspoiled nature. Thus the country attracts thousands of nature lovers for rock climbing, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing, rafting, and other adventures and exciting activities. Additionally the volatile and hip urban areas of Norway around Oslo, Bergen, Alesund, Stavanger and others, offer a bunch of interesting historic sites, cultural events and festivals, exciting nightlife, shopping and fine dining.
