Travel to Norway in October

October is a fantastic month to visit Norway, when the fall colours are at their peak and the autumn temperatures are cool yet mild with an average of 6 °C (43°F) in Oslo, the capital city. And as the sunsets arrive earlier and earlier each day with the coming of winter, October also offers the chance to see the northern lights!

The best places in Norway for northern lights tours in October 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.

With the Norwegian landscapes bathed in autumn’s golden hues, October is also a good month to take a Norway in a Nutshell train journey from Oslo to Bergen -- with breathtaking mountain and fjord views in between. Or experience sailing on a Hurtigruten cruise in October along the west coast, with numerous ports of call and shore excursions in charming towns like Ålesund.

Feel like taking a road trip in Norway in October? Go on a self-drive tour in Norway’s stunning Lofoten Islands to enjoy peaceful fishing villages, majestic mountains and incredible photo opportunities. With about a week or more in October 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.

If you’re wondering where to go in Norway in October and what to see and do, check out Nordic Visitor’s exciting range of tour packages and chat with our friendly Norwegian travel experts.

For a wider range of self-drive itineraries, guided tours and holidays with more hiking possibilities, we recommend travelling between May and September on one of Nordic Visitor’s summer packages in Norway. For winter breaks with snow activities, it’s best to visit from December to April.

Scenic Fjords of Norway, April 2018

Excellent service

Second time we've used Nordic Visitor and they will continue to be my first choice for booking tours. Excellent service from travel consultants, value for money and the information provided make it an excellent company. 

Jeanette, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

I did not realize how easy the travel would be

I did not realize how easy the travel would be, it was a great blend of being on your own and the privacy, but having a back up and someone to organize the transportation was great. I felt like I saw the most I could in 5 days. 

Janice Persson, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® - Classic, October 2017

Impressed with how well everything was handled

I was impressed with how well everything was handled and the superb communication I received from my agent throughout. He responded to my emails immediately and answered every question I had.  I loved the personal connection I felt and the knowledge that Nordic Visitor would respond appropriately if I ran into a problem.

Swapna, United States

Norway in a Nutshell® and the Pulpit Rock, July 2017

Truly was a trip of a lifetime!

All accomodations were perfect. All hotels were close to all the local attractions, easy to get to from the airport, train station, ferry station. All the rooms were ready when I got there, they were clean and comfortable. The included breakfast were really delicious. I am a vegetarian, and had plenty of options. My whole experience with Nordic Visitor has been exceptional, and I have been telling everyone of my friends how easy everything was. Sofia was very patient with me, and worked with me, to tailor the itinerary to my satisfaction, was prompt in answering all my questions. Everything was done over email, which I loved, because I didnt have to rely on my memory. All in all, Nordic Visitor rocks! This was truly a trip of a lifetime!

I'm so glad I booked the trip with Nordic Visitor

I'm so glad I booked the trip with Nordic Visitor. Norway is spectacular in itself, but have such a knowledgeable, friendly and helpful guide made the trip so much easier and enjoyable.

Robert, Albania

Perfect

Carla, United States

Highlights of Norway, June 2017

I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia

Your company provides outstanding tours, guides, and Arrangements. If and when we return to Scandinavia, we would only use your company. We never had to worry about anything and knew our experience would be spectacular. I would recommend your company to anyone going to Scandinavia. In fact we're looking forward to more tours
