Norway is the northernmost of the three Scandinavian countries. Its mountain peaks, glaciers and deep fjords, as well as its midnight sun and Northern Lights, have made it a dream destination for outdoor lovers around the world. Oslo, its capital, has a lively cultural scene and lots of green spaces to enjoy, if you visit during the summer months.
Thanks to a warming northern current, Norway is not as cold as Siberia or Alaska, even though they lie at the same latitude. During the summer, temperatures can reach 25℃, even in the north. If you are visiting in winter, brace for the cold!
Oslo’s Gardermoen airport is the main international point of entry to the country. However, several low cost airlines offer alternatives from the main European cities to secondary airports in Oslo.
If you want to see the Northern Lights, visit from November to February. For ski touring, the season is from February to April. Choose the summer months (June to August) if you want to go hiking or rock climbing.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
