Eight years have passed since LaIsla began taking you, our readers to experience sights and sounds the world over. We have invited you to join us in a home away from home, where you can just relax and spend the time of your life without any worries. The journey continues as we celebrate another year of adventures around the world.
To mark our anniversary, we ask you to join us once more on a trip, this time, to the Land of the Midnight Sun, Norway. The country takes its nom de guerre from a natural phenomenon that takes place during the summer months, in which the sun shines almost continuously for 24 hours.
View picturesque landscapes in comfort and luxury aboard one of the country’s famed recreational vehicles. Take it easy as you visit the country’s villages and municipalities such as Stavanger and learn their varying cultures and traditions.
Marvel at the unique architectural design of the Stortingsbygningen, designed by the Swedish architect Emil Victor Langlet to serve as the seat of Norway’s parliament. For those with a more contemporary taste in architecture, there is the Oslo Opera House, one of Norway’s largest cultural buildings, and home to the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet.
Walk through the streets in the city of Bergen, dine in its famous restaurants, and grab the best buys at its shopping districts. A must-see in the city is the Bryggen Street, a series of Hanseatic buildings along the eastern side of the Fjord. Take a road trip to Lofoten Island and Trolltunga, both well-known for their majestic scenery.

Some people look to shopping as an avenue in which they can release their stress, but we here at LaIsla, provide more than material joys, offering not only experiences and memories but also the opportunity to see the world outside your comfort zones. This travel therapy encourages us to live life to the fullest.
As life goes on, you, our dearest readers, can rest assured that many places await you, ready to be discovered. But for now, you have the wonders of Norway to savor.
