Books about Norway from a British author.
My first guidebook authored from scratch for Avalon Travel, part of Hachette Book Group. Moon Norway is a guide for the first-time visitor to Norway, so it focuses on Oslo, Bergen and the fjords.
There are also sections covering what you need to know about Stavanger, Trondheim, and northern Norway including the Lofoten islands, Tromsø and the road to the North Cape.
The country’s history and culture is described in detail, along with strategic advice on getting around and making the most of however much time you have in Norway.

There’s also plenty of strategic advice on finding the best accommodations, getting around, and experiencing Oslo at its finest, whatever time of year you visit.

Modern Oslo is reborn as a centre for business, art, culture and sport. Don’t let the costly reputation put you off. It is possible to enjoy Oslo without spending a fortune.
