Take an amazing trip to Norway in August
August is one of the most popular months to visit Norway… and for good reason! The days are long and the nights are short at this time of year, so you can spend more time on sightseeing during your summer vacation in Norway. Plus, with the warm August weather in Norway you can take advantage of the plentiful outdoor recreational activities, such as whale watching and scenic hikes in the fjords at places like Pulpit Rock.
Though many of Norway's top natural attractions can be visited in under a week from Oslo, August is a wonderful time to slow down the pace and venture further into the Norwegian countryside — either on your own or with a guide — on an itinerary lasting 8 days or longer. To drive around the Norwegian fjords at a more relaxed pace and experience incredible roads like the steep, twisting Trollstigen or the dramatic Atlantic Ocean Road, we recommend 10 days or more for an August road trip in Norway.
August is also ideal for travelling by train through the mountains to cities like Bergen or Trondheim, as well as for sailing on a Hurtigruten cruise along the west coast with shore excursions in places like charming Ålesund and the arctic Lofoten Islands.
Visiting Norway in August on a longer holiday? With about 2 weeks or more you can combine journeys by car, cruise ship and train into one epic summer vacation or even extend your tour of Norway to the other Scandinavian countries.

Want to see the northern lights in Norway? Dark nights are required for viewing this natural phenomenon, so a Nordic Visitor winter tour in Tromsø or Kirkenes between October and April is best for a chance of aurora sightings.
