The stunning Scandinavian country of Norway lies high up in Europe's north, just waiting for you to explore. It is ideal for a camping holiday with a RV. RV rental in Norway is becoming increasingly popular, as the country is particularly known for its fairytale nature, which will impress you with thousands of islands, beautiful beaches, fjords and mountains. Almost nowhere else will you find so many different nature experiences together! This makes Norway one of the most popular hiking areas in all of Europe and a paradise for outdoor sports enthusiasts of all kinds. The Northern Lights or the Midnight Sun also attract many tourists every year and offer a unique panorama. Norway is thus a true dream country for nature lovers. Still, the country's cities, as well as the Scandinavian culture and Nordic mentality, are also worth a trip. Discover the beauty of the country on-site and see for yourself!
The Scandinavian country has around five million inhabitants, of whom approximately 635,000 live in the capital Oslo. Sweden, Finland and Russia are Norway's neighbouring countries. The hilly country has many mountain and high plateaus, so-called fjells. In addition, the Skanden, the Scandinavian mountains, run through almost the entire mainland area. Galdhøpiggen is the highest peak in Norway and Scandinavia, at around 2740 metres.
The west coast has a relatively mild climate all year round due to the Gulf Stream. Daytime temperatures in spring are around 14 degrees in the west and south. Warm summers and quite cold and above all long winters await you in the east and northeast. Near the city of Bergen, i.e. on the south-western coast, you have to expect a bit more rainy days because here most of the clouds come down from the Atlantic. The summer months of June and July are pleasantly warm throughout Norway. Still, with autumn, the temperatures cool down again quickly.
The period between May and September is the best time to travel by RV, as the days are longer and the temperatures are higher. So nothing stands in the way of cooling off in the fresh water or water sports activities! In the town of Andenes you can even watch sperm whales, which are in the region at this time. In the south, it gets warmer as early as May, while in the north, it is a few weeks later.
But the Norwegian winter world also has a lot up its sleeve. Numerous skiers and winter sports enthusiasts flock to the country between November and April. In addition, this period has something extraordinary to offer: With a little luck, you can marvel at and observe the northern lights. So you see, every season in Norway has its own charm!
