I have not but it's in the plans one day to visit there soon as well as Netherlands, Sweden, Ireland, and England.

It's been a while and I didn't stay as long as I wanted but if you want to see fjords then yes, Norway would be a great destination. Most times, however, you'll have to book tour packages or something similar as these places can be quite remote. If you plan your trip accordingly, you may even catch a glimpse of the northern lights.

Since you've been to Norway - are the rest of the country as green and mountainous as the fjord?  Northern lights would be great.  I would want to sleep in one of those glass roof hotel where you can stare into the heaven, see the Northern lights.

If "Northern lights" is the objective, go to Iceland as it's closer. Or even closer (at least to me), Alaska...But if it has to be Norway, go visit their island, Svalbard...

True, Alaska would be closer for Northern Lights and Iceland is the ultimate place to see this wonder.  Did you know they have Ice Hotel there? Northern Lights would be a plus But I'm more interested in greenery, peaks, and valleys, rivers, and lakes, oceans, and beaches, etc... 

The Fjord in Norway seem to be one of a kind, i'm thinking.

Iceland has plenty of green stuff. It's funny, Iceland and Greenland should swap names as Greenland has a lot more ice than Iceland when I was there...Here's a photo of the green stuff in Iceland:



And surrounded by ocean from all sides:

Depends on what you want to see but if you prefer green stuff, late spring and summer should work. I say depends because many tourists go there to experience the "ice" of Iceland, like these couples' marriage engagements...:
