What's the weather like in Norway?

The ideal time to visit the stunning Norwegian Fjords is during the summer months, when temperatures can easily reach a pleasant 25 degrees. However, the climate in this part of Norway can change very quickly, so we would recommend packing your suitcase with light layers of clothing, as well as a waterproof jacket.

Other suggested additions to your suitcase would be a hat and gloves, sensible walking shoes if you plan on venturing further ashore, and sunglasses to avoid squinting when admiring the mountains and waterfalls around you. 

Visiting the Norwegian Fjords in the summer months also affords guests the opportunity to experience the Midnight Sun, with almost 24hrs of daylight - a most surreal, yet exhilarating, phenomenon.

For guests visiting Northern Norway, or going in search of the Northern Lights, then layers of warm base layers and clothing are recommended; along with ski-type jackets and trousers, as temperatures can often go into minus figures - particularly in winter. You'll want to be out on deck on your cruise ship if looking for the elusive Aurora Borealis, so we'd also recommend thick gloves and hats too.

Of course, the weather in Norway is always subject to change, so please do check the forecast for your cruise before you depart.
