OUR NORWAY ADVENTURES
WHEN TO GO
As with all Northern destinations, the summers in Norway are short and the months between May and September are by far the busiest on the islands. Every season has its unique highlights to offer, try to avoid December and January as the days are too short, but you can enjoy longer days paired with the spectacular the Northern lights from late February/March. Spring is the best season to spot whales while hiking and biking are best over the summer months with the grounds being mostly dry.
WHAT TO BRING
Be prepared for fast changing weather and wear more clothes than necessary as opposed to too few. Even in the summer months the temperatures can vary greatly over the day and windy rain showers can follow quickly after beautiful sunshine. Waterproof jackets and hiking boots are essential to explore nature at its best.
If you are traveling in winter, pack warm socks and underwear, warm woolen or fleece jumpers and a warm water- and windproof winter jacket. Don't forget your hat, scarf and gloves.
