Norway is the north most European country, is engulfed in cold climate of the arctic region. Although being an overall cool centric region, it presents all the arctic activities around for its inhabitants to enjoy and make the best of the apparently sluggish climate that people envision it by around the world. Rich in history, landscapes and scenic mastery it attracts many tourists to this Scandinavian Peninsula. Sweden and Finland lie in East of Norway whereas to the west lies the North Sea and the Atlantic Ocean.
