    BEST TIME TO VISIT NORWAY

     

    Spring (April & May) - The famous cherry blossom in Hardanger.

    You can feel nature virtually exploding into life all around you. While most consider spring a season that starts with the spring equinox in March, it may actually start as early as February in parts of Norway, when the snow may start to melt and the first flowers may start to appear. This is also the season when the temperature differences between the southern and northern part of the country are largest. In early spring the coastal areas of Western Norway usually has the highest temperatures, but in May the highest temperatures are usually found in the southern part of Eastern and Southern Norway. Spring is the time of year when daytime and nighttime temperatures differ the most.


    Summer (June, July & August) - Don’t sleep away the white summer nights

    Summer in Norway means long days, short nights, and often quite stable and pleasant temperatures on both land and sea. From late June to early August the weather is at its warmest and it never seems to get really dark. As soon as summer gets a firm grip on Norway, you’ll see the locals out and about to enjoy the sun after a long and cold winter. Late June to early August is when summer is at its peak, with temperatures that can reach 25°C–30°C. At the same time there is hardly any humidity in the air, and even at night temperatures can remain high. The further north you go, beyond the Arctic Circle, the more nights of midnight sun you will be able to experience in the summer.

    Midnight Sun

    The Midnight Sun is a natural phenomenon that occurs when the entire body of the sun is visible above the horizon 24 hours a day. This only happens north of the Arctic Circle. You can find the dates and locations for the Midnight Sun below.

    Autumn (September & October) - A colorful time to explore Norway

    The days grow shorter, the food richer, the air crisper and the outdoor colors more spectacular. The perfect season for stress-free adventures. Autumn usually gives way to winter as early as October, but more often in mid-to-late November. Differences between north and south are less pronounced than in the spring, though Northern Norway and mountainous regions will be earlier than the coastal and inland areas. Nature is at its most dazzling as summer turns to winter. Whether hiking in the majestic mountains and countryside or spending time by the windy coast. Autumn is a time for great cultural experiences as well – be it art exhibitions, literature festivals or intimate club concerts.


    Winter (November to March) – The Best Time to See Northern Lights

    In winter, much of Norway is usually transformed into a snow-clad paradise, and that means ideal opportunities for exciting activities in the snowy landscape. But winter nights are long and dark in all of Norway, and from the middle of November until the end of January, the sun does not rise at all in parts of Northern Norway, north of the Arctic Circle. To experience the unbelievable colors that moves across the Arctic sky is on many travelers’ bucket list. Few places on earth offer more ways to witness the aurora borealis than Norway. In winter, the average temperature in Norway is -6.8 degrees, but the conditions may vary quite a lot. In Oslo and the surrounding areas, snowfall is common and the average temperatures are just below zero.

    Polar Nights

    The polar night is a natural phenomenon that occurs when the night lasts for more than 24 hours, which means the sun is below the horizon. This only occurs north of the Arctic Circle. You can find the dates and locations for the polar nights below.
