Teach English in Norway. English teachers always they have had a fun time teaching English in Norway! It is a huge country – the distance between the southernmost and northernmost points is the same as the distance between south of Norway and Rome. If you have enough time sure it’s great to go around and reach Nordkapp. The coastal steamer along the western coast of Norway is also a memorable experience. If you’re looking for a northern experience visit Lofoten islands instead. With their spectacular landscapes, glacier-carved mountains, small villages, fishing cabins and sand beaches it is sure going to be a memorable journey.

Norway is located on the Scandinavian peninsula; its long, craggy coast forms the western margin of the peninsula and fronts the Atlantic Ocean (sometimes known as the Norwegian Sea) for most of the country's length. To the southwest the North Sea separates Norway from the British Isles, and directly to the south the Skagerrak separates it from Denmark. In the east Norway shares an extensive border with Sweden and for a shorter one with Finland and Russia in the north.
From north to south, Norway is about 1,770 km long, but for much of the distance it is very narrow, exceeding 160km of breadth only in the south. About one third of the country lies within the Arctic Circle, where the sun shines 24 hours at the height of the summer. Characteristic of the terrain are rugged mountains interrupted by valleys that cut into the land. Along much of the coast cliffs drop impressively to the sea, forming the fjords which are among the most distinctive features of Norwegian geography. The longest and deepest of them is the Sogne Fjord. About 150,000 offshore islands serve as a barrier that helps to protect Norway's coast from Atlantic storms. Among these, the Lofoten Islands are the largest and also a very popular tourist attraction.
The climate is temperate, and the severity of winter along the coast is moderated by southerly air currents brought in above the waters of the North Atlantic Drift, which is warmed by the Gulf Stream. Summers are relatively cool throughout the country; rainfall is high everywhere, most of all on the coasts, of course.
Oslo lies at the head of Oslo Fjord, about 97 km from the open sea. Today Oslo is a well-planned city with wide, straight streets. Government offices and the central business district are focused on Karl Johansgate, which is the main street in Oslo. By the harbour is the two-towered City Hall (completed 1950), the city's most famous landmark, facing the fjord and the downtown area. Oslo is also the cultural heart of Norway. The university, which was founded in 1811, is the largest in the country.

Midnight sun
It is very light in Scandinavia during the summer, and in northern parts of the country sun never drops below the horizon in midsummer. But you should also know that there is nothing spectacular in this – it is simply an ordinary sun shining even during the night. There are million good reasons to visit Norway, but contrary to majority of tourist brochures I don’t count midnight sun experience within them.

On the other hand, Aurora Borealis is an extraordinary feature and if you’re not afraid of dark and heavy winters it could be one of the reasons to visit Norway in winter months
Norwegians are somewhat hypocritical…..they are proud of being very concerned on environmental matters, but at the same time they still support whaling. They justify it on 'scientific purposes', but you will find whale on many restaurants' menu.

On the other hand, a whale watching industry is starting in the Vesteralen islands. It is an amazing experience, but be prepared for a long, freezing journey by boat to the place where sperm whales are feeding themselves. It's not apt for people who get sick on boats .
