Make a holiday rental property or self catering accommodation in Norway your home away from home

It is hard to give a rough guide to Norway, as there is simply so much worthy of a mention. Simply put, Norway in a nutshell is a wild, rugged and intensely beautiful country, filled with glaciers, fjords and fearsome mountains which cannot help but to conjure up images of Norse gods and legends of Vikings. Travel in Norway is a tourists dream, surrounded permanently by awe-inspiring scenery, untouched fishing villages oozing Norwegian charm and amazing historical sights from Viking to medieval cabins, Norway cannot fail to enchant. Norway is a very diverse country, and there are huge changes from the northern tip to the area surrounding Oslo in the south.

Things to do in Norway

There are a whole host of things to do in Norway. Entertainment options range from walking in Norway’s jaw-dropping landscape, especially the fjords of Southern Norway to exploring the magical cities of Oslo, Bergen or Trondheim. Taking self catering Norway accommodation means that you can do any outdoor activity in the best natural facilities in the world.

The vast wilderness areas of Norway are among my favourite places in the world. Changing from Europe’s largest glacier, Jostedalsbreen, to the crystal clear mountain lakes of the Norwegian countryside, the landscape is truly inspirational, and there are some stunningly remote holiday cabins in Norway’s more inaccessible areas which offer the perfect retreat. Hiking, trekking and walking in Norway is simply unrivalled, and the hunting, fishing and rock climbing opportunities aren’t bad either!

The birthplace of skiing, Norway, has over 30,000km of pistes, through the magnificent scenery for both downhill and cross-country skiing. Norway’s ski season lasts from November right through to the end of May, and accommodation in Norway is in high demand during this period.

Places to holiday in Norway

Southern Norway, is a truly Scandinavian region, with charming, friendly towns and thriving nature. The picture postcard style coastal villages are beautiful, and the land in from the coast is perfect for walking, canoeing, climbing and telemark skiing in Norway.

Possibly the most beautiful region, and this is a highly contested title, the Norwegian Fjords run up the south western coast of Norway. Perfect for outdoor sports, you can kayak, raft, climb, walk and summer ski in Norway’s fjord region, and who could ask for better scenery to enjoy?

Eastern Norway, home to Oslo, the Norwegian capital, is a lively place to be in ski season. The wooded pistes around the Olympic town of Lillehammer are very popular for cheap skiing holidays, and the deep forests in the region hold the highest concentrations of wolves in Europe!

Northern Norway, high above the Arctic Circle is a magnificent place to visit, especially during the summer as it is transformed into the ‘land of the midnight sun’, bathed in 24 hours of sunlight. Tromso also wins the bragging rights as having the world’s most northerly brewery!

Weather in Norway

The ‘land of the midnight sun’ has incredible, endless summer days from May until September. Flights to Norway increase as the mild climate brings bloom to the trees, bathing Norway in a blanket of colour. In the far north, the sun stays out from the 13th May until 29th July, and nowhere in the whole of Norway sees true darkness during this time, and temperatures average around 16°C. In winter, days are short, dark and very atmospheric, and skiing resorts in Norway are usually some of the only resorts still open.

Travel to Norway

Reaching self catering Norway property can be testing, but depending on the exact location of your Norway accommodation, Oslo (OSL), Bergen (BGO), Trondheim (TRD), Stavanger (SVG) and Kristiansand (KRS) all receive cheap flights from the UK, provided by British Airways.

This is a stunning place! It is set in a quiet, natural environment right on the fjord with magnificent views and big open skies. Everything is set up to enjoy the location; large windows, great decks and a perfectly placed hot tub. We never tired of the ever-changing views of the mountains, fjord and the sunsets. No matter which way we travelled from the house the scenery was spectacular. Inside the house is stylish, comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. The heating was very efficient, and we could imagine it being comfortable even in the coldest weather. And to the important question: Northern Lights in October? - most certainly! It was a fantastic display and we couldn't imagine being in a better place to view them. The owners were very welcoming, helpful and thoughtful. We highly recommend them and their magnificent house.

The Nissehus was an easy 3.5 hour drive from Oslo, good clear instructions for arrival. The house itself was beautifully located in a larger cabin area with pretty landscape and some small lakes. Christmas was unseasonably warm this year, so no snow on arrival, but it came down during our Christmas day breakfast to lovely effect. We took some little walks in the area, and had an outdoor bbq with hot dogs and cocoa around the fire pit provided, but unfortunately did not get to try out any of the skiing trails or local slopes. And the snow came down for full the night before we were to leave, absolutely gorgeous. The house itself was bright, spotless and well equipped on all fronts, bedding, kitchen, sauna. Lots of space both inside and outside for all of us. Great views from the kitchen table which became our natural gathering place. Excellent communication with Harald both prior to and during our stay. I can see that it would be a lovely place to stay during the summer as well. Highly recommended!
