Travel to Norway in April
April in Norway is when the season starts to noticeably change from winter to spring, bringing with it slightly warmer temperatures and a lot more daylight hours. With the longer days for sightseeing, April is a great time to take a Norway in a Nutshell train journey from Oslo to the charming city of Bergen -- with breathtaking mountain and fjord views in between. You can also experience sailing on a Hurtigruten cruise in April along the beautiful west coast, with numerous ports of call and shore excursions in scenic towns like Ålesund.
Feel like taking a road trip in Norway in April? Go on a self-drive tour in Norway’s stunning Lofoten Islands in April to enjoy peaceful fishing villages, majestic mountains and incredible photo opportunities. With about a week or more in April you can even extend your Norwegian adventures to the neighbouring Scandinavian countries, with travel by ferry and train linking the capital cities of Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
As there is still some darkness late at night in April, you'll also have a chance of seeing the northern lights. The best places to go in Norway for aurora viewing is in the far north, in arctic towns like Kirkenes and Tromsø. With an April holiday in northern Norway, where the winter snow holds on a little longer, you can enjoy unique activities, like guided tours or overnights at the Snow Hotel, along with opportunities to look for the northern light in the evening.
