Norway Waterfalling Binge Itinerary (20 Days)

This itinerary summarizes our trip in Norway, which was sort of a follow-up trip hot on the heels of our real eye-opener in New Zealand. This was one trip where I really wished we had more time, because as you'll see in the table below, this was an extremely waterfall-centric trip. We actually missed out on some of Norway's more signature attractions though I highly doubt that we'll ever visit this many waterfalls in such a short period of time again - due to age, funds, circumstances, etc. So we got a major taste of what I think is one of the world's most beautiful countries, but I still long for a return trip for a more diversified itinerary than this one.

That said, this was a self-driving itinerary so we were able to accomplish a lot on our own time. We also took advantage of the midnight sun or the nearly perpetual daylight so we actually began some hikes when we would normally be sleeping! We were also still somewhat new to the foreign independent travel arena at the time so our logistics concerning accommodations and flight arrangements were done through a tour operator (though some mistakes were made and we had to do some last minute adjustments during the trip). And finally, we acknowledge that despite the limited time spent in this country, it was also one of the more expensive trips we've done since Norway is by no means cheap! That said, sometimes lifetime experiences trump bang-for-the-buck, and I definitely believe this is the case in Norway.
