Packed with advice inspired by the Paramount+ original series, Millionaire Holiday Home Swap, we’re sharing some easy tips on how to travel Norway like a local!

A getaway to Norway is a fascinating experience in and of itself. But how do you kick those plans up a notch? Answer: Travel Norway like the locals! As you sit down to book your next holiday, consider the following.

Consider the best time to visit Norway

When planning the best time to travel in Norway, consider what you want to do while there. Are you dying to see the Northern Lights? Or are you eager for a ski getaway in the mountains? Whichever you decide, packing and dressing accordingly will help ensure you conquer Norway like a seasoned pro. Many prefer early summer for a holiday in Norway due to the country’s frigid climate. Temperatures in June and July usually range from the high 60s to low 70s Fahrenheit (20 to 22 degrees Celsius). However, Fall is typically the cheapest season to travel in Norway. And if you are hoping to hit the slopes, March is the best time to plan a Norway ski trip, since the country is darkest during the winter months.

Try something new in Norway

There are a million reasons to love traveling, but perhaps one of the best is the opportunity to experience things you otherwise wouldn’t. So on your next holiday in Norway, we encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and try something the locals love. It could be as simple as trying a traditional Norwegian dish like fårikål or learning about Norway’s customs and cultures, such as literature and art.

Our best Norway travel advice? Look into home swapping

If you are hoping to travel Norway like a local, house swapping is one of the best ways to immerse yourself in the country, culture, and local customs. It’s also an excellent way to save money on lodging, and have access to things only known to locals. When exchanging homes, your host is a great resource for travel advice, restaurant and activity recommendations, and other inside tips on how to have an amazing, authentic experience.

If you have never done a home swap before, consider finding your next holiday accommodation via a home exchange site like ThirdHome. We are a private club for second homeowners, and our portfolio includes luxury properties in Oslo, Kongsvik, Fiskå, Høvåg, and more across Norway.
