Its geographic position in relation to the rest of Europe often makes people think that Norway is a lot colder than it actually proves to be.
Most people visit the country between May – Sep. These tend to be warm (as high as 30°C), although as any Norwegian will tell you the only thing to be certain of about Norwegian weather is that it’s unpredictable. Make sure to take some light waterproofs even if visiting in the height of summer as showers can occur at short notice.
During summer the temperature means it’s even possible to swim in some fjords, but at night it can still get very cool, so some warm clothing is essential year round. The “Midnight Sun” (when the Sun never falls below the horizon) can be seen from mid-May to the end of July in far northerly points such as Hammerfest. It still appears as far south as Bodø, for approximately a month through June.
Inland you can find low temperatures through the winter months, with heavy frosts and snowfall. However, temperatures are still not as cold as you might expect (although altitude and windchill can make them dip). The winter moreover is an excellent time to see much of the country, as it appears at its most beautiful when frozen. Plus visit the region north of the Arctic Circle from November until around April and you might see the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights. Take cold weather gear, including waterproofs and well insulated shoes and you should be fine. Note that Bergen tends to be substantially wetter than the rest of the country.
