Back Cover, Glimpses of Norway - 1951 Edition

From the Back Cover

Norwegian scenery has the refreshing charm that only great contrasts and surprising variations can afford. Lofty weather-beaten mountains, capped with eternal snows, mighty waterfalls and foaming rivers, huge forests and calm lakes, bleak and barren mountains, waste and sheltered valleys.

And then the fjords, large and small, winding between magnificent mountain landscapes.

A rich luxuriance of floral life, and light effects that vary from burning sunshine and brilliant colors to soft twilight and velvety dusk.

The Norwegian Railways arouse great interest, for nowhere is railway engineering more difficult than across the mountains and valleys in Natures Wonderland. All railways in Norway are scenic railways, and every railway journey offers a wonderful variety of views.

At the travel bureaus of the Norwegian State Railways the services of an expert staff are available for advice on how to travel in Norway, the best places to visit, and for the completion of all your travel arrangements.
