The breathtaking fjords of the southwest are Norway’s most dramatic features, but there are many other reasons to visit this sparsely populated land on the north of Europe. Norway is foremost a land for those who love nature.

Norway is bordered to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the east by Finland, the Russia and Sweden. The coastline is long and its most outstanding feature being the fjords. North Norway lies beyond the Arctic Circle and the landscape is stark. In the south, the landscape consists of forests with many lakes and rivers.

Language: Norwegian. English is widely spoken.

Electricity: 220 volts AC, 50Hz. Plugs are of the European round two-pin type.

Climate: Coastal areas have a moderate climate owing to the Gulf Stream and North Atlantic Drift. Inland temperatures are more extreme with hot summers and cold winters (November to March). In general, the lowlands of the south experience colder winters and warmer summers than the coastal areas. Rain is distributed throughout the year with frequent inland snowfalls during the winter. The northern part of the country inside the Arctic Circle has continuous daylight at midsummer, and twilight all day during winter.
