Spring is from May to mid-June is when the scenery in Norway is at its most spectacular, with trees and flowers waking to life,snow in the mountains .Orchards of flowering fruit trees along the Hardangerfjord in May are images of paradise.

In Late June to Early August Norway experiences warm , bright long days with temperatures between 25 - 30°C .With the sea temperatures around 18 °C it’s a good time to swim . In Autumn the landscape is painted Golden making it a good time to to pick berries and mushrooms .You can experience the midnight sun in the Northern most part of the country above the Artic Circle .

In winter much of Norway is usually transformed into a snow-clad paradise and is the time to witness the amazing Northern Lights
