BEST TIME TO VISIT NORWAY
Norway offers a wealth of experiences throughout the year, and you’ll find plenty to enjoy no matter when you book your flight to Norway.
Norwegian winters are cold and dark, though this is the best time to enjoy a range of snow sports and wintery landscapes. December to February is also the best time to see the spectacular Northern Lights.
The lighter days and cold temperatures of March make this an ideal month for hitting the ski slopes before the snow thaws and the spring wildflowers start to bloom.
Summer is generally the best time to visit Norway for a wide array of festivals, long days and warmer temperatures. It’s a great time for cruising the famous fjords and hiking in the countryside.
Autumn sees fewer crowds and the temperatures begin to drop. This off-season period is, however, the best time to find cheap flights to Norway as well as great deals on accommodation.
