Norwegian term or phrase: innertier
Steinsundet er en **innertier** – en flott lagune og gedigne svaberg ved et smalt sund. Må oppleves!

This consists largely of route descriptions, MOH and advice about where to find shops, petrol and bathing beaches, but there are little comments to make it all sound worthwhile. (I think the pictures say a lot more, but I can't see those!)

I would really appreciate any good suggestions about what 'en innertier' might be - thanks!

a sure bet
Explanation:
The term is usually related to target practice, shooting and arrows hitting a target's "bull's eye", but in this sense I think it refers to "a must-see" destination as in "excellent destination spot". You might also use something like "unforgettable"...?

Thanks a lot!
I was expecting something more specific (wild strawberries, geological formations and other natural phenomena feature in many of these comments, but it's a big catalogue, so I'll be able to use all your other suggestions too. OK, probably not 'bull's eye' :-)

agree  brigidm: And anything with "must" is very 'in' at the moment (must-have, must-see, etc). All good suggestions! Just don't use "bulls eye"!!
