Year-round activities in Norway
Norway is one of a few countries that is as popular for tourists during winter as it is during summer. So if you are looking for skiing holidays or summer holidays, NOVASOL might just have the right holiday lettings in Norway for you! So why not enjoy some skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or bobsledding during your winter holiday? The four seasons are very distinct and don’t be surprised if you still find some snow by March, April or even May, which is when the snow usually thaws. The Norwegian summer months are characterised by short, yet warm summers, which is great for hiking, cycling, swimming, rafting or salmon fishing. If you travel with your family, there are always things to do in Norway. Why not visit the amusement parks Hundarfossen, Bo Sommarland or Tusenfryd, experience the midnight sun, a polar night or the Northern Lights?
Active holidays in Norway
The beautiful turquoise Norwegian fjords and glaciers can be found all over the country and are often located next to waterfalls, steep green mountain ranges and picturesque landscapes. They are often in walking distance from our country cottages to rent in Norway, cabins and chalets in Norway and are a great spot both during your summer or skiing holidays Norway. Fjords are long arms of the sea and thus contain salt water and can be admired from some of the highest glaciers in Europe. After an exciting day in the Norwegian glaciers, or fishing on the fjords, our holiday makers always enjoy to recover in the saunas of our holiday homes in Norway.
Fishing holidays in Norway
Fishing is a much-cherished pastime for tourists and locals alike, whilst also providing the basis for much of Norway’s cuisine. Rent a coastal cottage with sea views or a lakeside holiday home in Norway with access to local boat rental and you yourself could be out on the placid waters looking for the catch of the day. Find wild salmon, arctic char, trout and cod amongst the seafood you can fish yourself or simply find in a local market or at a restaurant. Although markets can be found all along the coast, if you rent a Norwegian holiday home in Hordaland, the harbour in Bergen is particularly charming.
Norwegian culture is fascinating to explore whilst self-catering in Norway and you are welcomed to learn about ancient traditions, customary recipes and crafts, folklore and festivals. There are many chances to learn about the culture of Norway over the year and celebrations take place in every part of the country - from the biggest city to the tiniest village. The most important of the year is arguably on Constitution Day (May 17th). Book a holiday rental in Norway over this time and enjoy seeing everyone dress up in traditional costume, play games with locals, listen to music and eat delicious local food.
City breaks in Norway
Norway is not just an excellent self-catering holiday destination for sweeping scenery, stunningly beautiful nature and opportunities for outdoor adventures - there is also the cosmopolitan spirit of Norway, that beats in the heart of cities and towns like Oslo, Bergen, Trondheim, Tromsø and Ålesund. Spend your time absorbing culture in modern art galleries, warming up in minimalist coffee shops and taking in unique architecture. Rent one of our Norwegian holiday cottages in Oslofjord and visit the country's capital where endless exciting activities await you. Meanwhile the perks of the countryside are nearby and seemingly are all your own as around 75% of Norwegians live in the cities.

Lovely peaceful location, interesting historical ruins on the island and lovely sheltered coves, calm seas, good fishing and fabulous sunsets over Stord to the West. The holiday home was very peaceful (Property ID: N24727), the access path would benefit from a rethink - the path was great fun, especially for the children and fine when dry, but heavy rain made the path very tricky. Would go here again, the host is very accommodating and even allowed us in to the house earlier than expected, as we arrived sooner than we had anticipated.
