Norway is a sparsely populated country with a lot of wonderful nature: a very long coast line, lots of islands, deep fjords, a plethora of lakes and forests, and last but not least, mountains. All this provides plenty opportunities to swim or be in the sun with or without clothes. Admittently, the weather in Norway is not as stable as further south, however, in return, we have long summer days - and the further north you get, the longer they are.
