A favorite destination for Europeans, Fjaerland, Norway, a tiny farming town at the end of the Fjaerlandfjord (a branch of Sognefjord) 160 mi/260 km northwest of Oslo, is preposterously scenic. Two massive glaciers spill down over the mountains, and at the Norwegian Glacier Museum (http://www.bre.museum.no) you can have (literally) hands-on experiences with the ice. Guided walks on the glacier are also available.
Book lovers will want to prowl the shelves of Norwegian Book Town (http://www.bokbyen.no), a dozen multilingual used-book shops in quaint restored barns and boathouses. For more viewing, take a ride on the historic Flam Railway. http://www.flaamsbana.no.
