Norway - Nordland (PDF Chapter)

$4.95 USD

This is the Nordland chapter from Lonely Planet’s Norway guidebook.

For those with a love of all things Arctic, this is where Norway really starts to get interesting. Heading northwards through long, slim Nordland, lush fields give way to lakes and forests. Above the imaginary curve of the Arctic Circle, travellers get their first taste of the midnight sun in summer, while in winter, the northern lights dance across the night sky.
