One word comes to mind when I think of Norway. Epic. There is just no other way to describe the larger than life nature that is available here.

When to go

Per usual, spring (May) and fall (September) provide the pleasant weather mixed with lower prices and fewer crowds making it an ideal time to come. Tourists aside, summer has the longest days and warmest weather. 

Winter comes with beautiful snow covered mountains. Hiking trails and some roads will be closed, days will be much shorter (5 – 6 hours of daylight) and it will be COLD but you will also have the chance to see the Northern Lights. You also get great skiing and snowboarding.
