Useful information about your hike tour in Norway

Norway's climate

The climate in Norway is just as varied as the country itself. The western coastal areas are shaped by the North Atlantic Current and have mild, humid climate. This moisture is evident in frequent rain, particularly in the western areas of the mountains and, for example, in the city of Bergen. There is a reason why Bergen is known as one of the cities in Europe with the highest precipitation. The amount of rain decreases from the southern to the northern regions and the interior is characterised by a continental climate. We recommend June to August as the ideal months to travel for hiking holidays.

Norwegian cuisine

Fish in all variations and particularly fresh and of excellent quality awaits you at the table in Norway. The cuisine in the north is shaped by the long and essential tradition of fishing, so you will find wonderful fish dishes on every menu. But the time of the Vikings also had an impact on Norwegian cuisine. The basis of the smoked meat and dried fish (e.g. Klippfisk) is thanks to the former sailors of the north. One thing is guaranteed in Norway – every foodie will be happy here.
