Landscape photographers will find Norway to be a fantastic place to visit. You’ll find a wealth of great photo opportunities at any time of year, particularly along the famous coastal fjords. The landscape changes dramatically throughout the year, from summer’s lush greens to autumn’s reds and oranges and winter’s pristine white. Then as an ex-pat, student or immigrant, there are times you will need different pictures at once. You can check out Depositphotos for different concepts.
Let’s check out fantastic places for your pictures
The ‘troll’s tongue’ has quickly grown in popularity, attracting over 80,000 visitors during the four months open each year. That figure is more impressive if you consider the 27-kilometre round-trip hike from Skjeggedal to this stunning cliff edge. The view across Ringedalsvatnet lake is definitely worth the effort. Because of the high demand from people, it’s best to visit at the beginning or end of the season, around mid-June or mid-September. Consider going through norskeanmeldelser.no for opinions before camping out by the tongue overnight if you don’t want to have to queue for your “staring into the wilderness” selfie.
In 1904, a fire nearly destroyed the coastal town of Lesund, but from the ashes rose a vibrant, Art Nouveau paradise. Due to its rapid redevelopment, the city has expanded to seven islands, but the old central hub remains the most picturesque. You can get some great concepts of the brightly coloured façades reflecting in the harbour waters at street level, but the best view is from the Byrampen Viewpoint, further east. The 418 steps are challenging to climb in the winter, so come in the spring for nice weather, beautiful views, and ice-free steps.
Because it is suspended 984 meters above the ground, wedged in a mountain crevasse, the 5-cubic-meter Kjeragbolten is a popular hiking destination. While there is a limited view of the Lyse fjord, the image of someone standing, jumping, proposing, dancing, or even base-jumping from the top of the boulder is iconic and extremely popular (as in, expect to wait anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for your turn). To get there, you must hike 10 kilometres along a well-marked but challenging trail that begins next to a restaurant on Lysebotn road. If you don’t want to wait in line, get there early and look for other viewpoints in the area that, while less popular, are arguably more beautiful.
While the lovely Innerdal valley near Sunndalsra lives up to its bold moniker at any time of year, it is beautiful in the autumn, when the trees burst with vibrant colours. There aren’t many buildings in the picturesque valley among the Trollheimen mountains, as Norway’s first nature reserve. The traditional turf roof on the few mountain cabins there (some of which you can stay in) makes them especially beautiful as the weather turns colder and the colours fade from green to orange to brown. There are other lovely rural valleys in Norway, but none with the Innerdalstrnet – Norway’s “Matterhorn” – adding a touch of grandeur to your photograph.
