Why Norway is the greatest place on Earth
The Huffington Post just published an article/photo series headlined "25 Reasons why Norway is the Greatest Place on Earth", stating that Norway is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful places one can visit.
- It's home to more natural wonders than we can count and it has stunning cities, fascinating history and really happy people. Norway's not cheap. But it's worth it, the Post states.
It then goes on to present 25 top destinations, illustrated with photos. Among them:
Hornindalsvatnet - the deepest lake in Europe.
The Huffington Post also mentions the special Norwegian law called "allemannsrett":
- Allemannsrett literally translates to "all men's rights." It's a "freedom to roam" public rights law that allows the right of access to and passage through all uncultivated land. This means you can pitch a tent or hike through any land that is "utmark" (non-cultivated). Also, wild-berrying is permitted everywhere. This little rule is extra awesome because there tons of jaw-droppingly beautiful places to see in Norway and few barriers stopping you.
