Retrace Andrew's Journey

Norwegian Beauty

Relive the adventures of Nat Geo's Digital Nomad (@WheresAndrew), who explored the cultural and natural beauty of Norway. Along the way, Andrew celebrated Constitution Day in Norway's capital city of Oslo; saw Edvard Munch’s famous painting, "The Scream"; drove through the world’s longest road tunnel; hiked Norway's famous "Pulpit Rock"; licked a glacier; and milked goats in one of Norway's beautiful villages along the great fjords.
