Norway Vacation Rentals

Find a City Apartment

A city center apartment makes a great vacation rental. Some of the best places to look for an apartment vacation home include Oslo and Bergen in the south and the bustling city of Trondheim in the west.

A Traditional Rental Home

Choose a vacation house that offers a taste of traditional life such as fishermen's cabins close the fjords in the Flåm and Trondheim areas. Or, see the northern lights from an authentic Norwegian vacation home north of the Arctic Circle near Tromsø.

Vacation homes for winter sports lovers

Skiing is part of everyday life in Norway, both in the city and in the countryside. Make the most of the country's amazing scenery with a rental home near the country's mountain and glacier resorts or close to its forests and natural parks.

Vacationing in Norway

A Land with a Unique Location

The farthest north, the farthest west and even the farthest east of the Scandinavian countries, that's Norway. The country borders Sweden and Finland and a small part of northwest Russia.

Specatacular Natural Features

Central Norway is dotted with mountains and glaciers, making it a must for ski enthusiasts. It's capital city, Oslo is friendly and picturesque but other cities like Bergen, where the Bryggen harbor district is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are equally alluring. However, the country is probably best known for the amazing west coast sea fjords that stretch from the Arctic Ocean to the North Sea near Scotland and Denmark.

Don't forget to add snow chains

Although Norway has an excellent road and rail network that is complemented by ferries and cruise boats, lots of people choose to rent a car for the duration of their stay. Choose a 4 x 4 with good all-terraintires, and don't forget to add snow chains if you're visiting in winter.

Make the most of the great outdoors in Norway

Pick a rental home in Kristiansand for fishing, sailing and hiking or choose a traditional cabin close to one of the magical fjords. Cycling is popular in Norway and there are dozens of coastal routes to choose from near Bergen and Trondheim. Head to northern Norway to access the magical Lofoten Islands - you'll be captivated by the towering peaks and crystal clear waters and it's the ideal place to spot sea eagles, try stockfish, or see the Northern Lights.

Plan a City Break

Whether you're booking a rental home in Bergen or looking for a vacation rental in Oslo, Norway's vibrant capital, you can count on being close to lots of amazing attractions. See the Hanseatic houses that line Bryggen harbor in Bergen and dine in one of the city's acclaimed restaurants. Or, shop for designer clothing in Oslo before visiting the Viking Ship Museum.

A Place for Everyone

Wander past waterfalls and fish from a traditional cabin at the head of a fjord or ski on some of the best slopes and trails in Europe. Dine in prestigious restaurants and explore landmarks from a chic city center apartment or head for the southern shores and peaceful Åsgårdstrand where 'Scream' painter, Edvard Munch once had a home.

Top 5 things to do in Norway

1. See the Northern Lights

Book a vacation rental in the north of Norway for a spectacular natural light show. The best time to see the aurora borealis is from September until the end of March and from 6 pm till about 1 am.

2. Explore Oslo

There really is something for everyone in Norway's vibrant capital. See the amazing sculptures at VigelandPark, the murals at City Hall or visit some of the many museums in the Bygdøy district. Literature fans can follow in the footsteps of Jo Nesbø's famous character, Harry Hole, while music lovers can learn all about contemporary Norwegian music at the interactive Popsenteret.

3. Sail on the Fjords

Norway's spectacular fjords or sea lakes are a must-see for visitors of any age. Rent a traditional vacation home near Tromsø or Trondheim or try Flåm at the head Aurlandsfjorden for an authentic experience.

4. Ski in an amazing setting

Norway is the home of cross-country skiing. Grab a 'matpakke' (that's a packed lunch in Norway) and set off through scenic forest trails with breathtaking views. Those who prefer to ski on slopes can do so at high mountain resorts like Voss or Hemsedal.

5. Get to Know the Locals

Norwegians are friendly people who are always willing to help visitors get the most from their amazing country. They'll tell you where the best restaurants can be found or even what brand of chocolate or blackcurrant cordial to buy for those cross-country skiing trips.

In March 2017, Norway was voted the 'world's happiest nation', stealing the crown from its Scandinavian neighbor, Denmark

Useful Information

Climate in Norway

Western Norway can be wet and windy but winters are milder than in the east. Norway is known as the 'Land of the Midnight Sun' and, should you choose a rental home north of the Arctic Circle, you can expect sunny days and light all night from May to July. The rest of the country enjoys up to 20 hours of daylight during the same period. Of course, that also means that from November to January, the sun never rises above the horizon north of the Arctic Circle.

Viking Festivals

Viking Festivals take place all over Norway during the summer months. Some of the best include KarmøyViking Festival in June and Lofotr Viking Festival in August.
