I've never been to Norway, know next to nothing about the country and only two words of the language so this book has been a godsend to me.

The inside cover includes a simple map of the regions of Norway followed by an introduction to the country including its climate, wildlife, fjords (a main reason for the visit) and history before moving onto the regions starting with Oslo. This section is expecially detailed and covers a full 100 pages including streetplans (and a very useful street index), all the landmarks, harbours, sites of interest etc complete with map references where appropriate and excellent photography ranging from small images to full page and several full colour double-page spreads.

The next section covers the rest of Norway supplemented again by illustrative maps, photographs and descriptions of its towns, villages, harbours and islands. Throughout there are contact telephone numbers of Tourist Information Centres and website addresses.

The final section provides information for travellers, particularly overseas visitors such as myself with next to no experience of foreign travel. Here there are listings of serviced accommodation (no camping or self-catering), places to eat and information about shopping in Norway, reclaiming VAT on purchases, entertainment, outdoor activities and practical information such as health services, currency information, mobile phone networks and travel information followed by a useful brief phrase book.

In short, this book offers everything a first-time visitor to Norway will need. It is well-written, provides clear maps, enticing photography and is easy to carry around while travelling and its oversized stiffened protective cover will keep it in good condition.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Sep 2011
We generally like the DK Eyewitness Guides but this one was disappointing on our recent cruise to the Norwegian fjords. The section on Bergen was helpful but for the other ports the information was woefully inadequate. Thankfully, our friends had the Lonely Planet guide to Norwary which was much more useful. The redeeming feature was the colour photography in the DK guide which, as always, was excellent - but that doen't help a lot when you're visiting new places and want to know the best things to see and to do.

4.0 out of 5 stars Norway Travel Guide 12 Nov 2010
This is a must to read and do your research before visiting Norway and essential when you are there. A good set of guides as usual from DK.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, excellent value 21 Feb 2011
Colourful, informative, easy to read & understand, just love this and the series.
Great for general information for all areas in the Norway, therefore not specific detailed info on any one area. But great for general and background.
Lovely book to have, read and easily transportable in size, shape and quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Colourful and comprehensive guide 1 Mar 2011
As always, DK have come up with a very comprehensive and interesting guide book. Colourful photos enhance the detailed description and there are sections on Where to Stay, Where to Eat, Shopping, Entertainment and Sports & Outdoor Activities.It divides Norway into seven sightseeing areas and is colour coded which is very helpful. The 'Survival Guide' section near the back is useful and there is also a transport map of Oslo.
There is so much to Norway and this book helps to unravel all the possibilities. I hope to travel there soon and this book will be with me all the way!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent notes and illustrations 31 Aug 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent notes and illustrations highlighting places of interest to look out for and the be places to visit. Very good and contains most up-to-date. Information. The only thing we did not see mentioned was about a limit on the size of a pen knife blade applying to Scandinavian countries and you will need to be aware of that if you're say camping and want to take a pen knife with you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product
DK guides are the best. Beautifully illustrated and highly informative. This one was second hand and so a bit out of date but still worth the money.

4.0 out of 5 stars VERY CLEAR
This is a very clear guide. Because it covers all of Norway it has to be an overview but I found it helpful and informative, particularly the maps and drawings.

Very happy with this for the cost - I particularly like (and trust) this brand - particularly the survival guide at the back

I was a bit disappointed by this guide. Perhaps I am just more used to lonely planet, rough guide or even Fodors but this was difficult to follow and insufficiently detailed. Read more
