Norway is the westernmost of the three Scandinavian countries, located in Northern Europe, bordering Sweden, stretching from the North Sea near Denmark to the Arctic Ocean. The land is famous for the complex and deep fjords along the west coast. Because of the Gulf Stream, the climate in Norway is noticeably warmer than what would otherwise be expected at such a high latitude. Oslo, the capital, is located in the southeast region, where most of the population resides. Norway has a lot to offer in terms of nature. In the summer, hiking and biking are obvious ways to enjoy the enormous mountain areas. For the adventurous, kayaking, wild water rafting, paragliding, cave or glacier exploration are possible. In the winter, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding are very popular. Sites include Bergen, the country's second largest city, an old Hanseatic trading centre, with rich culture and dramatic scenery; Haugesund, a city with old traditions from the Viking age; and Kristiansand, the jolly capital of the South, famous for its international music festival every summer.
