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.

Remi was amazing from the start, he helped me to organise flights, car hire, the correct route to use (avoiding ferries) as well as replying to all manner of random questions. In addition, Remi and May waited for us until quite late at night, to help us get our supplies before taking us to the house. We arrived in snow and the dark, so were unaware of what was in store for us across the Fjord - more on this later. The Hytte, was utterly beautiful, the photos make it look lovely, but in real life it is even better. Everything has been thought of, crocks to wear to the hot tub, games for the family to play, binoculars to watch the comings and goings across the water. It was comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed, we largely cooked for ourselves, the beds were wonderful, the duvets were amazing, we were so toasty. The boys (17 and 13) had a bunk bed, with a double at the bottom and were very happy. There were blankets and towels, clothes, dishwasher powder, we didn't need anything. The house was so warm, everything dried quickly, with an airer and warm floors. Remi organised for us to go dog sledding - this is a must. We meet Hilda and her family and we had the most amazing time, we just could not stop smiling. They took care of us, we had coffee before and after, they had suits for the boys to wear and we got involved in harnessing the dogs and getting them ready, it really was an experience that was worth every penny. The hot tub was marvellous - really clean and wonderful to sit in in the snow, or as the sun went down. As for the scenery....that first morning we woke to the sun, blue skies and the fjord, it was truly spectacular. We didn't tire of watching the weather come in and the changing skies. Neither did the boys tire of playing in the snow, building snow men or jumping in it. It was so quiet, it really is quite remote (15-20 minutes to the town), but we felt so safe and enjoyed listening to the gentle lapping of the waves. We saw a seal and a pod of dolphins. As a family, we were able to disconnect from the world and laugh and play. The cabin has all mod cons for entertainment and there is a world to walk and hike through. If you want a break from the world, to see some outstanding scenery, Norway is for you, everyone was kind and friendly and we really want to come back. Thank you.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      My wife and I were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and we really could not have chosen a better place, 5 stars and so much more. Views of meadows and lakes and snow covered mountains from every room. The owner Lars-Engil lived next door and was very helpful; they built the house 2 years ago and it is stunning – spacious, great décor, very well equipped kitchen – a pleasure to cook in, spotless, even a hot tub, log fire and candles on the patio with mountain views, billiards and darts in the cellar. This house would feel spacious with 8 people no problem as the first floor has its own lounge and kitchen too – great for groups – we hope to take our extended family with us next time and stay the whole holiday here – it is such a good base for day tours around beautiful fjords, lakes and mountains – for example only 8 min drive north on E13 and we were high and driving thorough a winter wonderland at Harklau and beyond, two hours to the coast on the E609. Or walk from the house around the village valley with lakes, woods, and beautiful rapids river only two minutes from the house. So worth the 30 minute beautiful drive from Sande – nearest town and restaurant. Self-catering is easy with a well-equipped locally run store in the village. We have no hesitation recommending this property.....you will not be disappointed with any aspect of your stay and you will want to return.
