Preparing properly for the weather in Norway is of the utmost importance before your departure. Norway is located in Northern Europe, within or close to the Arctic Circle. This means the weather is variable, with long days in the summer, and long nights in the winter. The weather each day can change drastically- from sunny and warm, to windy, cold and rainy.

Different weather in different regions:
Has a cool, wet climate, characterized by the frequent passage of weather fronts, so that clouds, rain and wind dominate throughout the year. Rain is common along the western slope.
Is colder but still affected by the gulfstream. The result is that the open sea does not freeze even at this latitude, and this does not happen anywhere else in the world! The northern coast has strong winds in winter and spring, and is still affected by rain.
The area has a continental climate, with cold and snowy winters, and mild summers. Typically the interior is covered with hills and mountains, and the temperature decreases with altitude. This area of Norway typically sees less overall rain.
