Frequently asked questions
What to pack depends on the time of year you plan to travel, but Norway has a reputation for being cold and rainy, even in summer! Be prepared for whatever Mother Nature has in store by packing a raincoat and weather appropriate footwear. If you’re planning on making the most of the thermal baths (definitely do) be sure to pack a swimsuit or two.
From bustling cities to the awe-inspiring northern lights and remote villages, Norway is jam-packed with incredible things to see and do. Norway’s capital Oslo is ideal for those seeking a cosmopolitan holiday with a buzzing food scene, must-visit museums and cultural attractions in upmarket neighbourhoods. If your Norway bucket list includes the Northern Lights, midnight sun and breathtaking natural scenery, Tromsø is where you will find it. If you’re keen to check out the glittering Fjords, head to Bergen.
If you immediately picture snow-capped scenes when you think of Norway, it may come as a surprise that the summer months (from June to August) are actually the most popular time to visit Norway. Generally speaking, the weather is mild and there’s plenty of daylight to make the most of outdoor activities such as hiking, biking and camping. If, however, you’re here for the aforementioned snow-covered landscapes and the Northern Lights, winter (December to February) is ideal.
Kayak along the world-famous Fjords, witness the magic and splendour of the Northern Lights, brush up on Viking history, take a hike (literally), experience the incredible customs and traditions of Sami culture, enjoy a scenic train ride, eat and drink your way around Oslo, the list is endless!
