See the Northern Lights

One of the biggest attractions that ends up drawing millions of visitors every year is the Aurora Borealis. Although the Northern Lights can be spotted from multiple locations throughout the world, they pale in comparison to the Northern Lights in Norway. Since it is positioned so close to the Arctic Circle, the country offers some of the most spectacular views of the dancing lights as they race across the sky.

If you think that stargazing is a romantic thing to do with your partner, then you will be absolutely blown away by the impressive sights offered by the Aurora Borealis. By going on a Northern Lights chase in Tromsø, you can give yourself and your spouse the honeymoon of a lifetime.

Cruise Down The Geirangerfjord

While Norwegian fjords are well known for their spectacular beauty, there is one that stands slightly above the rest when it comes to romance. The Geirangerfjord stretches out for 15 km, with incredible views on either side for the entire way. The journey from the entrance of the fjord to its end, where the lovely little town of Geiranger can be found, is filled with various mountains, brightly colored flora, calming waters, rushing waterfalls, and everything else that is beautiful about nature.

Being able to sit along the edge of a boat and watch as this gorgeous scenery goes by, is one of the most romantic things that you and your significant other could ever do. The romance only gets better once you reach the final destination of Geiranger, thanks to its collections of small quaint shops and many fun-filled activities such as hiking along the famous Seven Sisters waterfall.

Go on a Sleigh Ride

A honeymoon should be a magical time together and it doesn't get much more magical than cruising through the snow on a dog sledding trip. In general, dog sledding and snow tours might be the perfect option for a romantic getaway as you and your significant other can bundle up all nice and cozy while having a great time! For the action minded, an adventure themed honeymoon is something to consider when Norway's the destination.

Along the northern coast of Norway are also millions of reindeer, many of which are raised and trained by the locals. By heading up to Karasjok, you can have the opportunity to take your new spouse on a romantic reindeer sleigh ride through the mountain scenery. It is sure to be a unique experience that both of you will remember for the rest of your lives.

Take a Road Trip Along the E6

It might sound a bit weird to say that a road trip is a romantic thing to do. However, that’s only because you have never experienced the unparalleled beauty of the E6 in Norway. This scenic stretch of road actually starts from Malmö in Sweden and travels all the way up north along the Norwegian coastline until it reaches the northern tip and then leads east into the Russian border.

Two of the most popular cities that the E6 passes through are Lillehammer and Oslo. This particular section of road that connects these two cities is decorated with various lakes, mountains, and other natural elements that make this one of the most scenic drives in the world. By cruising down the highway while holding your significant other’s hand and taking in the view together, you can be sure to have a relaxing and extremely romantic adventure.

You’ll sail past numerous islands, including Hovedøya and the Dyna Lighthouse, through narrow inlets and into sheltered bays, so that you can capture the capital on camera from different angles.

During your cruise, a local Norwegian buffet of shrimps will be offered, and in the bar, there is a wide range of both hot and cold drinks.
