Travel to Norway in September
Unlike the peak summer tourism period of June to August, visiting Norway in September offers you lighter traffic on the roads, fewer crowds at popular attractions and better availability of accommodations. And with the mild, autumn-like weather in Norway this time of year, you can take advantage of plentiful outdoor recreational activities like whale watching and scenic hikes in the fjords.
Though many of Norway's top natural attractions can be visited in under a week from Oslo, September 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 a road trip in Norway.
September 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 September on a longer holiday? With about 2 weeks or more you can combine journeys by car, cruise ship and train into one grand 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.
