Despite its northerly location, Norway is an amazing destination any time of year. Summer months bring the endless daylight of the Midnight Sun as well as warmer temperatures, making June-August the busiest season. However, winter time (Oct - Mar) is equally stunning offering the opportunity to view the Northern Lights. And for those looking to avoid other tourists, spring and fall are by far the quietest months with a more temperate climate.

When is the best time to visit?
Norway's latitude, with part of the country located north of the Arctic circle, creates pronounced seasonal differences. Hike and cycle the Scandinavian landscapes, and experience the Midnight Sun during summer; Go dog sledding, skiing, snowmobiling, and see the Northern Lights in winter. More details
Where to go in Norway?
The go-to destinations for many travelers are the world famous fjords at Aurland, Jotunheimen National Park, the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard, and the scenic Lofoten Islands. A cultural must see is the city of Oslo with its many museums and rich history, and there are plenty of ways to experience Norway off-the-beaten-path.
How many days do I need?
Some visitors breeze through Norway in 3 days, and while you can quickly tour the country and get a feel for its natural scenery, we recommend to plan a week or more to really take in all that it has to offer.
Looking to get off-the-beaten-path in Norway? Here are a number of great ways to experience Norway like a local, from lesser-known coastal regions to scenic train routes to local festivals that celebrate Norway's history and culture.
Norway, meaning "the way leading to the north", is so long that if you spin it around on the map you would end up in Rome. Similar in size to California and with a population of only 5 million people, this Nordic country has plenty of open space to explore. Its stunning fjords, mountains and natural phenomena such as the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun make Norway a must-visit destination. Get inspired for your next journey by these must-see natural highlights and destinations in Norway.

Norway family tour aug 2017, Norway - Aug 25 - Sep 3, 2017
We started with 8 people planning 1 itinerary, but ended up with 1 with 1 schedule, and 7 persons in a different itinerary. Linda was a fantastic, patient and knowledgeable travel guide in helping to plan our trip, from beginning to the end. She had fantastic recommendations. The 2-hour city walks / tours were wonderful. (We had 1 member who used a wheelchair for the walks, which we were able to borrow at our hotels. Planning that in advance would be a big help for future trips)
