Summer may be over, but that doesn’t mean that holiday season is – in fact, autumn can be a great time to travel. Just think of the glorious colours and the crisp air! If you’re after a truly magical trip this season, look no further than Norway. Read on to find out more…
- Cosy Nordic nights
Obviously, the further north you go in Europe, the further the temperature tends to drop. Norway is, therefore, the ideal destination for anyone that loves to wrap up. And when it comes to cosiness, Norwegians are the experts. Here, you can stay warm in front of a roaring fire with a cup of hot chocolate in hand. This is just one of the many perks that makes a Norway trip so special. So, why not indulge in some snug Nordic nights?
- Nature at its finest
From its fjords to its national parks, Norway is a hub of natural beauty – and it’s particularly splendid in autumn. After all, this is the time of year where golden leaves cover its landscape. Just imagine seeing this spectacular sight reflected in a fjord as you roam one of Norway’s many dramatic cliffs! Or seeing the season in all its glory from the window of your cabin, speaking of which…
- The Cabin Experience
Hotels can be all well and good – but very often, they lack the personal touch that most of us want from a holiday lodging. Enter the Norwegian cabin. Offering more than just a place to stay, this option guarantees a cosy retreat. As cabins are spread throughout Norway’s vast countryside, you’ll be able to enjoy sweeping views from the moment you wake up. Picture the classic cabin scene – the only difference is that this is the real thing!
- Fewer tourists
What’s the best thing about holidaying outside of peak holiday season? Ask almost any seasoned traveller, and they’ll tell you that it’s the reduced number of tourists. Though Norway doesn’t become as overrun with visitors as other hot spots – such as Venice or Lisbon – it’s still more likely to attract holiday makers during summer. Head there outside of term time, and you can avoid the risk of over tourism completely. Better still, you’ll be able to relish the delights of the cosy season!
- Seasonal treats
Norway is famous for its cuisine. In particular, the country is praised throughout the world for their commitment to sustainable fishing – a practice that reaps huge environmental benefits. Plump, juicy and filling, Norwegian lobsters are especially delicious. And notably, they’re only available at this time of year, as lobster fishing is restricted to October and November. Enjoy seasonal eating at its best with a trip to Norway!
There’s a reason why Norway is widely considered the gem of Scandinavia – it boasts natural wonders, friendly people and a cosy culture. And so, it’s the perfect destination for an autumn getaway.
