Fjord Norway experiences great regional variation in temperature and weather, and with this great beauty. The seasons have their unique colours and sights and seem to blend into each other – some days it seems we experience all four in a single day!
Thanks to the Gulf Stream, a warm Atlantic Ocean current, Norway enjoys a warmer climate than other places that share the same latitude, such as Alaska and Siberia. As a rule, areas along the coast such as Bergen have a milder, wetter climate, while inland and mountainous regions experience colder temperatures and more snow in the winter months. The long-stretched region of Fjord Norway also sees some variation from north to south, where the south tends to be a couple of degrees warmer. One thing that north, south, mountains and fjords have in common is that they all experience a lot of weather changes! Watching the skies change from bright blue to stormy grey – and back again - is a fascinating experience but requires some preparation if you have planned on adventures in nature. The temperatures we have included are an average which will differ slightly depending on region and yearly variations, and you can always check the exact forecast at yr.no.
