    Just got back from a 7 day roadtrip to Norway, I had my E-M5 and Pana 20 around my neck almost all the way, and i also used my Canon 300mm F2.8 and Samyang 7,5mm and Oly 75mm F1.8 on my E-M1.

    First stop was Orsa, where my GF had won a photocontest and the price was a full day for free and to get close to the polarbears.

    They have the worlds biggest inclosure for Polarbears, you see about 1/5 of it in this pic.

    You can see the cruiseship down in the fjord.

    The snow never melts away completely up here.

    I gathered as much, I'm Norwegian;) I just haven't seen those places yet, regrettably.

    Wether south or north next time is a difficult choice indeed. North is by far the most dramatic in terms of scenery. Cliffs and hills right by the sea. South, or Oslofjorden, where I live, is more sedate, but beautiful!

    Don't wanna hijack your thread or anything, but if you want to check it out, here is my album for a lovely little place called Nevlunghavn, a couple of hours south of Oslo, to give you an idea of what to expect.

    if you are going back, you should go north, if you are interested in nature then Lofoten is the place to go! For more city like stuff Tromsø is beautiful in the summer!
