In Norway, no matter the season, you should always bring a variety of sensible layers to add or remove according to the temperature.
No matter the season, you should always bring a variety of sensible layers to add or remove according to the temperature. Don’t forget to pack at least one warm jumper or fleece, a waterproof jacket and comfortable walking shoes/boots/trainers, preferably with good grip for all terrain. An umbrella can also be handy, and cruise passengers may wish to bring binoculars. Weather can change fast in Norway.
We recommend bringing a rucksack or small backpack - it can also be handy for hiking excursions or picnics.
Layers, layers and more layers — preferably thinner knits that can be peeled off when indoor heating gets to you but keep in mind that summer nights can still be chilly, especially in the mountains or on the deck of a cruise ship. Bringing light gloves, a hat and a scarf can be a good idea. Sun cream and sunglasses are also recommended.
Summer in Norway can be pleasant, with long daylight hours and nice temperatures. Recommended is to pack shorts, hiking boots and swimwear.
Bring some warmer layers (preferably wool), an insulated coat, scarf, gloves, hat, warm shoes, or insulated boots with at least one pair of thick socks, mainly if the trip includes outdoor activities.
If your tour includes activities like dog-sledging or snowmobiling, you may also wish to bring glove liners, a balaclava and maybe even hand/foot warmer heat packs.
If you are staying along the southern coast, winters can be quite mild but wet, so you will want to pack layers with a waterproof outer layer.
