Pictures from winter in Norway

Lofoten in winter by Baard Loeken, Nordnorsk Reiseliv

Due to the northern latitude, the main parts of Norway enjoy a real winter, with snow and ice throughout the winter months.

The climate along the Norwegian coast is normally milder due to the warm water of the Gulf Stream, but these parts may also experience real cold periods during the winter. In Bergen the mean temperature in January & February is above zero degrees Celsius.

The mean temperature in Arctic Tromso is -4º C during the winter months, while one would expect it to be far colder, considered its northern latitude.

Winter activities are important for the people of Norway, and in Norway’s capital Oslo it is a common feature to see people carrying their skis on the trams or tubes on the way to the amazing trails surrounding the city.

What our customers say:

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all.
    I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour.
    Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.
