Romantic Locations in Norway for Outdoor Lovers


1. Geirangerfjord

This UNESCO World Heritage-listed fjord is known for its breathtaking beauty. You can propose at the famous Flydalsjuvet viewpoint or on a scenic fjord cruise for a memorable moment with the dramatic cliffs and waterfalls as your backdrop.


2. Preikestolen - Pulpit Rock

Hiking to Preikestolen, a flat plateau overlooking the Lysefjord, is a popular activity for visitors to Norway. Proposing here, with the fjord stretching out below, can create a dramatic and unforgettable moment.


3. Bergen

Norway's charming coastal city of Bergen is known for its colorful wooden houses and picturesque waterfront. You can propose on the historic Bryggen Wharf or take a funicular to Mount Fløyen for a panoramic view of the city.


4. Jotunheimen National Park

Norway's largest national park, Jotunheimen, offers a rugged and pristine wilderness setting. You can propose amidst the wilderness, perhaps by a tranquil mountain lake.


5. Vøringsfossen Waterfall

One of Norway's most famous waterfalls, Vøringsfossen plunges dramatically into the Måbødalen Canyon. Proposing near the waterfall or at one of the viewpoints can be quite enchanting.


6.  Nærøyfjord

Another UNESCO-listed fjord, the Nærøyfjord, is known for its narrow, winding passages and towering cliffs. Consider proposing during a kayak trip through this stunning natural wonder.


7.  Trondheim

Trondheim is a historic city with a beautiful cathedral and charming old town. The Nidaros Cathedral and its surroundings, as well as the Old Town Bridge, can be great places for a romantic proposal.

Romantic Destinations in Norway

Norway is full of romantic lakes, museums, and music. These are some especially romantic locations for a proposal over a glass of wine, a spectacular opera house, or at a beautiful lake.


8. Oslo Opera House

If you prefer a city setting, the Oslo Opera House's modern architecture and its location on the waterfront of Oslo's harbor provide a contemporary and romantic backdrop for a proposal.
