What to Pack - Norway

In Norway, no matter the season, you should always bring a variety of sensible layers to add or remove according to the temperature.


All-season Essentials

No matter the season, you should always bring a variety of sensible layers to add or remove according to the temperature. Don’t forget to pack at least one warm jumper or fleece, a waterproof jacket and comfortable walking shoes/boots/trainers, preferably with good grip for all sorts of terrain. An umbrella can also come in handy, and cruise passengers may wish to bring binoculars.

We recommend bringing a rucksack or small backpack - it can also come in handy for hiking excursions or picnics.


Summer tips

Layers, layers and more layers — preferably thinner knits that can be peeled off when indoor heating gets to you but keep in mind that summer nights can still be chilly, especially in the mountains or on the deck of a cruise ship. It can be a good idea to bring a pair of light gloves, hat and scarf. Sun cream and sunglasses are also recommended.

Summer in Norway can be pleasant with long daylight hours and nice temperatures. Recommended is to pack shorts, hiking boots and swimwear.


Winter tips

Bring some warmer layers (preferably wool) along with an insulated coat, scarf, gloves, hat and warm shoes or insulated boots with at least one pair of thick socks, especially if the trip includes outdoor activities.

If your tour includes activities like dog-sledding or snowmobiling you may also wish to bring glove liners, a balaclava and maybe even hand/foot warmer heat packs.

If you are staying along the southern coast, winters can be quite mild but wet, so you will want to pack layers with a waterproof outer layer.
