Norway's diverse coastline is the second longest in the world, with vertical sea-cliffs, beaches, flatlands, barren landscapes, archipelagos and rock formations. According to National Geographic, the coast of Norway may be the most complex land edge on the planet. If you put Norway’s 63 000 miles of fjords, bays, and island shores into a single line, it would circle the planet two and a half times.

Remarkably for such a long coastline, Norway boasts towns and inhabitants up the length of the whole coast, making the impressive coastline highly accessible. All the major cities are on the coast, while picturesque villages dot the rocky coastline and fjords throughout the country.
