The East Norway/Oslo region
Eastern Norway is framed by mountains, sea, rivers and valleys. The landscape goes from sea level at Oslo to all mountains above 2000 moh at Jotunheimen and Rondane. The traditions and customs are changing quickly when you trave through this region.
Lillehammer had Winter Olympics in 1994 and the area is a great destination for winter activities.
