About this site

Norway is a fantastic place to visit, especially if you love the outdoors. It has spectacular mountains, fjords, forests, tundra, lakes, rivers, fascinating wildlife, the midnight sun, the northern lights, and more. Norway is a wonderland of sorts for fishermen, hikers, and nature lovers in general, yet few people outside of Norway seem to know much about it.

I love the Norwegian outdoors, and I created this site to offer a personal rather than a comprehensive guide to Norway, but one that will start you off with the right attitude. Namely, a desire to go out the door and see what you find.

As an American from a Norwegian family, I've visited Norway many times. I've always found it beautiful beyond any description I can offer, except to say it is an outdoor paradise.

In reading these pages I hope you will see what I mean.

Contact Info

You can contact me at norway@bendiksen.org, though I must apologize in advance that I cannot always respond in a timely fashion, and sometimes I cannot respond at all... the side effect of a busy work and family life. I hope you will understand!

Please note I do not arrange travel, book fishing or arrange other activities.

Thanks for reading! I hope you find this site useful.


Earlier I maintained the site www.norwayoutdoors.com, with content similar to that now found here. I've since simplified things for myself by changing how I host and manage the content. If you were familiar with the earlier site, I hope you'll find what you're looking for here.
