Not many nationalities have such an intense love-hate relationship with their weather as the Norwegians do. There are good reasons for this however.Arctic temperatures hold a alrge part of the country in their iron grip throughout the long winter months.In the northernmost parts of the country winter is a seemingly endless night and in the summer the sun barely touches the horizon before rising again to cast its rays over seas,mountains and the far onrthern tundra.Cairo
In the south the summers are warm with temperatures equaling those of southern Europe.In spring and autumn,the landscapoe also has a special charm-created by the way the ilght is reflected off the steep,rain-wet mountainsides,the clear crystal water of the lakes and fjords,or the high peaks wity their mantles of eternal snow.
stop for most trurists,is Oslo.
