There is absolutely nothing wrong with the Berlitz Guide, it gives good background and of course covers the whole country, but given a choice, I'd rather take a DK Top 10 guide if it was on offer.
Even as someone who has visited Norway several times I found the contents both interesting and informative.
I like to buy these books before I travel, and have a good read before I go. I have quite a collection now, and yes I love to travel.
There are little maps, (albeit not as informative as an OS), but contains enough information for me, and lots of useful information of towns, cities, activities, culture etc. What I like most about these books, are the most useful language phrases, for holiday makers who like me, try to be polite and say please, thank you etc in the native language.
Would definitely recommend.
The guide embraces both the spectacular landscapes and the varied population of ethnic Norwegians and Sami peoples, and after a ‘Brief History’ it launches into ‘Where To Go’ which is sub-divided into 8 chapters, and ‘What To Do’ in 4 chapters, and a section on ‘Eating Out’ promotes Norwegian cuisine and details food festivals, menus and places to eat. As with all travel guides there are travel tips but these are minimal and are best dealt with by tour companies or agents. The guidebook is readily carried around whilst travelling, and readers will be astounded at the depth of knowledge packed into such a small space. Most importantly the information provided by Berlitz appears accurate and relevant with something for everyone to enhance their visit to Norway. However be aware the guide is dated 2011 and it is probably better for land based visits rather than fjord cruises.
