Nature Public Right of Access in Norway

To understand Norwegians, one must understand the natural environment in which they live.

Considered among the most beautiful places on earth, Norway is also a harsh land of cold, snow, fjords and isolation.

Norwegians are proud of living so closely with nature and their relationship with the natural world informs their national identity.


Outdoor activities

Norwegians are in love with nature and very keen on outdoor activities. More than half of all Norwegians have access to a simple cabin in the woods, where they can stay on the weekends and during the holidays.

Norwegians also enjoy “right of access”, which means that everyone has legal access to the open country, even if it is private property. Creating a green and sustainable society is one of the key goals for the Norwegian people.

Throughout the country, you will find protected spots and hiking trails to experience the amazing nature.
