Norway in Winter/without self drive

Jump to last reply

Hey all,

I was wondering if it is suitable for someone living in the tropics to visit Norway in late November/Early December. Weather is obviously a concern because we aren't used to snow and sub zero temperatures. Because of the short daylight, I feel that sightseeing opportunities are somewhat diminished. There is limited time to go hiking to various spots, but a higher chance of seeing the Northern Lights(?). From what I've read, people tend to focus a bit more on the nightlife of Norwegian cities in the winter. However, I'm more interested in the rugged landscapes and fjords Norway has to offer rather than planning a trip around the cities. Would it be advisable to visit Norway in early winter? (We won't be doing a self drive either because of the icy conditions of the roads) The trip should last around 2 weeks so I'm pretty certain I am only going to be able to see the highlights of this amazing country.

Thanks
