Book Description

Experience Norway is a travel guide to the best of Norway in a unique readable form. It is suitable for those planning a visit, those who are interested in finding out more about the country and those armchair travellers who just enjoy a good read.

It highlights the more rewarding parts of the country so those planning a visit can quickly and efficiently plan an itinerary. The best places to see and the top experiences are located and detailed and recommended accommodation options are provided throughout the country.

Experience Norway captures the personality and the underlying cultural and historical significance of the cities, regions and holiday destinations. Each is put into context by chapters on Norwegian Life and the country's History.

As more people travel to new destinations, guide books grow in importance but many are out of date before they are published. Experience Norway has been comprehensively updated in March 2014 so you are unlikely to be frustrated by experiences contrary to what is described. Many of the extensive accommodation recommendations have been personally experienced by the author and an honest description will help decide if it is right for you.

If you enjoy reading the travel pages of newspapers and magazines, you will enjoy reading this book. It will stimulate, excite and inform you even if you have no plans to visit. It provides a fascinating insight into one of Europe's richest democracies and its people that will help explain why this is such a wonderful country to visit.

Rugged wilderness, amazing fjords, interesting cities, traditions and modern technology combine to make Thailand a fabulous place to visit and read about. Spectacular scenery, friendly people, welcoming hotels and efficient tourism infrastructure make visiting a pleasure. It is all here to be enjoyed in Experience Norway.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great experience April 28, 2012

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Experience Norway is part of the Experience series from travel writer Len Rutledge. They are well named, for Len's flowing colourful writing is easy to read and very descriptive resulting in a true experience of the destination. Norway came alive for me in the easiest way; sitting in an armchair engrossed in the beautiful scenery and the culture of Norway. It is many years since I was in Norway and my memory was vague on detail, but it was sheer enjoyment to revisit the destination and reexperience it in much more detail. Many books designed for the traveller can be quite boring as they seem to be simply a collection of facts. This is a great read full of colourful enjoyment. Definitely a 5 star experience.

A great primer for a pre-visit. Most turned out to be better than presented and we enjoyed our trip. Perfect size companion and an easy read.
