If you plan to visit Norway, be ready to fall in love! Norway is an absolutely amazing country if you are into beautiful landscapes and adventures like hiking, biking and kayaking. High mountains decorated with white glaciers, rushing waterfalls and stunning views of one of more than 1 000 blue-green fjords inbedded between the high mountains.
All over the country you find beautiful little villages with small wooden houses in different colours with sheep and cows walking around freely. To experience the long Summer nights best time to visit is July-August.
In the Fjord region and Jotunheimen you find famous hikes such as the Trolltongue, the Pulpit rock and Kjerag boulder.
Far up in the north you find the Lofoten islands, the Key West of Norway. Starting in Narvik driving the 350 kilometers to Å far out in the Atlantic Ocean you pass by hundreds of mountains ranging up to 1 000 meters, several of them perfect for day hikes in summer or skiing in the winter.

Weather in Norway
One tricky thing about Norway is the weather. When the sun is shining everything is great but you have to be prepared for some rainy days and perhaps change your plans accordingly.
Many of the hikes might even be dangerous if it is rainy or very windy. One way to cope with this is to keep a close look at the weather forecast for the upcoming days and change the itinerary if necessary. Spending a rainy day in a city is really not that bad enjoying good food and taking a shorter hike.
