Norway - Southern Norway (Chapter)
This is the Southern Norway chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.
Come summer, the southern coastline draws Norwegian holidaymakers in droves. With a string of pristine coastal villages of whitewashed timber beside an island-studded sea, it’s not difficult to see why. For travellers, the ‘Norwegian Riviera’ offers a chance to experience a totally different destination from that of the fjords and high plateaus of the tourist brochures, one that is at once cosmopolitan and essentially Norwegian.
