Travel to Norway in November
November is the quietest travel period of the year in Norway, with cool temperatures and changeable weather conditions but with fewer crowds at the attractions. And as the sun sets earlier and earlier each day with the arrival of winter, November also offers the chance to see the northern lights!
The best places in Norway for northern lights tours in November are in the far north, in particular Tromsø or Kirkenes. With a short holiday in northern Norway you can enjoy guided excursions, such as whale watching, during daylight hours along with chances to see the aurora borealis light up the sky at night.
What’s more, November is a good time to travel from Oslo to Bergen on a Norway in a Nutshell train journey, complete with views of mist-shrouded mountains and fjords. In November you can also experience sailing on a Hurtigruten cruise along the beautiful west coast, with numerous ports of call and shore excursions in charming towns like Ålesund.
With about a week or more in November you can even extend your tour to the neighbouring Scandinavian countries, with travel by ferry and train linking the capital cities of Norway, Sweden and Denmark.

To experience dog sledding or a night at a snow hotel, we recommend visiting Norway between December and April when snow conditions are best. As for self-drive itineraries, guided tours and holidays with good hiking possibilities, it’s best to travel in summer.
