The Nordic nation of Norway lies in the northwest of Europe, and has a population of just over 5 million. Its long eastern border is shared with Sweden, while to the northeast it is bordered by both Finland and Russia, and to the south by the Skagerrak strait. Its rugged coastline breaks up into thousands of islands and fjords with much of the country punctuated by piercing mountain peaks.
Winters are characterised by cold and snowy conditions with short hours of daylight, especially the more northern regions.
Norwegian, with Sami spoken among a minority.
