With such a wide range of options to explore, Norway can easily keep most travelers occupied for weeks if not months. That being said, an epic itinerary can easily be created which much less time. We recommend at least five days to really delve into Norway. Don’t worry if you have less time though. Shorter visits are still feasible but should be focused on one or two specific areas. If you have more than a week, you can include remote areas like the Lofoten Islands or Svalbard.
