The Best Time for Excursions

Norway is an azure surface of fjords, Trollstigen, so famous among tourists, it is Flåm railway that passes the steepest slope in the world, and Oslo, cultural center of the country with multiple various monuments and museums, and different historical towns all over the place.

The Best Time for Excursions

The best time for sightseeing is, of course, a warm season from May until the beginning of September.

BEACH SEASON IN NORWAY 

The Best Time for Excursions

Norway is not the first country you will think about while considering a beach holiday destination. However you will find there several wonderful beaches with warm waters – thanks to Gulf Stream. Norway's South-Western coast is creeky with hidden bays that offer best Norwegian beaches – well equipped and with an extensive list of diversities. Beach season starts in June, however the majority prefer to begin swimming in July, when water temperature reaches +18 °C. Last visitors leave beaches in the middle of August.

YACHTING SEASON 

The Best Time for Excursions

Fresh mountainous air, breathtaking landscapes, and northern seas… Yachting in Norway allows you to escape from the fuss of modern civilization and submerge into the primal world of wild nature. The long stretching line of southern and western coast is an ideal place for yachtsmen. The season lasts from April to September, however the most favorable time for this sport is from July until August.

FISHING SEASON

The Best Time for Excursions

Norway is abundant with fish – in seas, lakes and rivers. Here, it is difficult to fail to catch a fish even for a beginner. Sea fishing is possible all year round because coastal waters do not freeze even in winter, moreover, you do no need a license. However for freshwater fishing you will need a document. The season here lasts from June to September. Spring and fall are fish's breeding seasons, which is why fishing is prohibited.

CRUISE SEASON IN THE FJORDS 

The Best Time for Excursions

The best time for fjord cruises (and the peak time as well) is from April until September. Tours traditionally start in Bergen. Of course, you can explore the fjords in winter as well – because waters do not freeze – however it is not that pleasant to stay on a cold deck for a long time.

MOUNTAIN SKIING SEASON 

The Best Time for Excursions

Mountain ski tourism started to develop in Norway already in the second half of the 19th century. Lillehammer hosted Winter Olympic Games in 1994. Because of the severe climate, the skiing season is rather long – snow cover in the mountains is solid from the middle of November until May. Cross country skiing is also popular in multiple ski resorts.
