Susan - Schweiz  (Urlaub mit Freunden, August 2019)

“Die Lage des Hauses”
René - Fürth  (Urlaub mit Freunden, July 2019)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Aussichtsreiche und ruhige Alleinlage, bequeme Betten, schöner Außenbereich mit Gartenmöbeln.”
Recommendations for future guests
“Radtouren und Wanderungen am Tyin Seen. Wanderung zum Vettisfossen.”
Peter Schmidt - Hannover  (Urlaub mit Freunden, June 2019)
Recommendations for future guests
“Das Nachbartal Utladalen haben wir mehrfach für verschiedene Wanderungen aufgesucht. Das ferne Gjendeheim (Besseggen / Veslfjellet 1743) lohnt sich trotz mehrstündiger Anfahrt. Ein relativ leichter Aufstieg - wirklich durchgängig leichte Wege gibt es hier eigentlich nicht - zum Aussichtspunkt bei Eidsburgarden (Utsukten 1518) belohnt mit einen tollen Panorama auf die Riesen im Nationalpark.”
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die Lage weit oberhalb der Ortschaft im Bergtal und der Ausblick über saftige grüne Wiesen auf die bewaldeten Berghänge ist wunderschön und entspannend. Schmale Wasserfälle stürzen aus höchster Höhe in unmittelbarer Sichtweite herab. Das ist uns wichtiger als eine luxuriöse Ausstattung und zentrale Lage.”
Maria - Trier  (Urlaub mit Kindern und Freunden, June 2019)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Die Lage war ideal für Ausflüge in die nahegelegenen Nationalparks, der eingezäunte Garten war super für unsere Hunde.”
Dirk - Bad Langensalza  (Urlaub mit Freunden, September 2018)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“- tolle Lage, sehr ruhig / - modernes Bad / - liebevolle Einrichtung / - Terrasse mit Grillmöglichkeit”
Recommendations for future guests
“Rundum (50km Umkreis) gibt es sehr viele Wandertouren. / Ein Highlight ist die Besteigung des Fanaraki (höchste Berghütte in Nordeuropa, im Sommer bewirtschaftet) die allerdings sehr anstrengend ist.”
Tobias - Karlstadt  (Urlaub mit Freunden, January 2017)
What did you especially like about the holiday house?
“Lage, Freundlichkeit des Besitzers”
Josine - Zutphen  (Gezinnen met kleine kinderen, August 2016)

About the area

About Norge

Your holiday home in Norway makes holiday dreams come true for nature lovers everywhere!

If you were to fold Norway down the way from its southern tip the North Cape would fall somewhere between Rome and Naples. The most southern, western, northern and eastern points in Norway, despite the long land borders with Sweden, Finland and Russia, all lie on the sea. Better than that even is that the east of Finnmark shares a line of longitude with Istanbul, while the west coast in Bergen shares one with Marseille. If you travel from Norway's south coast to the arctic circle, you have to travel all the way to Kirkenes and then the same distance again. If you'd like to set off along the whole coastline, including fjords and islands, you should plan time and luggage for around 57,000 kilometres of travel.

Norway's exoticism comes from its geographical and topographical profile, from its fascinating nature, which only seems to come in XXL format. The longest and deepest fjord in Europe, Sognefjord, or the largest plateau on the continent, the Hardangervidda. The endless summer days under the midnight sun and the magic of the dancing Northern Lights on the northern winter sky.

The fact that you immediately feel at ease in this completely different "world" is also down to Norwegian society. An environment that is focused on the future but glorifies the past with fervour . Mental gymnastics aren't necessary to understand "Sentrum", "Tradisjon" or "Velkommen". There is already a sense of familiarity when you arrive: If you don't opt for anonymous air travel and instead take one of the ferries through the Kattegat or across the Skagerrak, you will experience an atmostpheric overture: The first signs of land point towards prosperity and civic care: well maintained holiday homes in bright colours; marinas round every corner and in every bay; in the

busy harbour quarters of Oslo, Larvik, Langesund, Kristiansand, Stavanger and Bergen, it's all about the incoming ferries. The signs towards the car exit are as pleasant as the considerate driving. Let the journey to your "hut", the holiday home, begin:

Holiday in Norway

Norwegians love their great nature and freedom beyond all measure. It's no wonder that holidaying in your own holiday home is more than a way of living – it's a way of life. In the most beautiful locations on the banks of the fjords, on the open sea or in the vast mountains, there are several hundred thousand of the most beautiful holiday homes, which the Norwegians, very modestly, call "hytte", a hut. Most are located just a few steps from a hiking trail, a cross-country skiing trail or their own jetty. The main thing is that you are very quickly immersed in nature. The Norwegian magic formula for activities and relaxation in nature is called "friluftsliv", which more or less means life in fresh air. And it is contagious, we promise.

Winter offers up varied and challenging skiing for adults and children, beginners or advanced skiers alike. Even the historical sights and cultural events that have long stood in the shadow of experiences in nature are now attractions for many tourists.

Norway has so much to offer tourists all year round that you may be left wishing you had more time to explore everything.

Holiday in Norway's fjords

Norway is known for its impressive fjords, deep canyons that project up to 200 km inland. The largest fjords in Norway are Hardangerfjord, Sognefjord and Nordfjord. The ice age left its mark here . On the banks of the fjords, impressive mountain chains tower into the heavens. Holiday homes in this location have views that you can only dream of. A holiday in the fjords is certainly an unforgettable experience. Even UNESCO have certified the unique natural beauty of Geirangerfjord and Nærøyfjord. Seeing fjords on holiday in Norway, exploring them, walking along their banks and visiting the tiny places at the end of many fjords is almost imperative when on holiday in Norway.

Norway holiday tips

You could say that Norway is unique from head to toe and full of places that anyone would love to visit at least once. In any travel guide, you can learn all about the absolute highlights, such as Geirangerfjord, Trolltunga, Preikestolen, cities like Bergen and Trondheim, Lofoten and, of course, North Cape. We have a few extra special Norway holiday tips:

• Among Norway's fjords, you can visit Urnes Stave Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, take a mini-cruise on the ferry from Gudvangen to Kaupanger and take in the summit panorama from Moldes' own mountain.
• In South and East Norway, the Maihaugen open-air museum is certainly worth a visit. You don't want to miss the Peer Gynt Festival in Vinstra either if you are interested in culture, and visit the Forest and Hunting Museum in Elversum if you are a fan of nature.
• In Central and Northern Norway, you can take a mine tour in Røros, travel along Coastal Route 17 and take the cable car in Tromsø up the local mountain to take in the panoramic views across the polar region. And you wouldn't want to miss out on going on a Red King Crab safari either, do you?

Fishing in Norway holiday

Our fishing houses are perfect for a fishing holiday in Norway, complete with high-quality equipment, such as a filleting bench, freezer (min. 60 litres) and boat (included or for hire). What's more, we also offer so called fishing houses+. They're never more than 2 km away from fishing waters, the freezer has at least 200 litres volume and the boat (included or for hire) on site is at least 17 feed long and has 25 hp, with chartplotter, echo sounder and GPS. Fishing on holiday in Norway, that sounds about right! If you think about the beautiful clear water of the sea and the fjords, you can imagine just how many fish feel at home here. Holiday in Norway is varied and can even mean that you get to spend your evening preparing fish that you've caught yourself – the typical Norwegian lifestyle!

Norway holiday with children

Norway is a holiday destination for nature lovers. And they'll of course want to share that with their children too. Who needs amusement parks, hotel entertainment and water parks when you have a huge adventure playground to explore and discover right on the doorstep of your holiday home ? You can go fishing with your children, take kayak tours through the frjords, hike through the fantastic mountain landscape, make campfires with twist bread, go swimming every day, watch animals and so much more! You can make yourself comfortable in your holiday home and live according to your own rhythm, just the way you and your children are used to. A holiday in Norway with children is great – for adults and children!

Norway holiday with a dog

A holiday home break is potentially the best solution that there is for families with a dog.

In Norway, DanCenter has approx. 230 holiday homes available where dogs are most welcome. It's not just you who will love Norway, your dog will too! It's almost as though the unspoilt nature was designed for a holiday with your dog.

Weather Norway

Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Norway has a comparatively mild climate for its latitude. Even so, you can experience all 4 seasons in one day in Norway. In short – the weather in Norway varies. In spring, the country springs to life again and the days quickly get much longer. While the plants are blooming in the south, it can still be wintry and cold in the north . Nevertheless, the light entices the inhabitants and visitors back out into nature. In Summer, the sun hardly sets, especially in the North, where there is no sunset for weeks at a time. The weather in Norway at this time of year is mild, warm and comparatively dry. In autumn, the huge forested areas plunge into vibrant colours, the days get shorter again, mushrooms and berries are ready for harvest and it's a great season for lots of outdoor activities, such as hiking. In winter, the weather in Norway brings with it a magical winter wonderland. Many regions can rely on snow, so there are lots of opportunities to take part in winter sports in Norway. In the north, there are a few weeks where the sun doesn't come up, which gives you a good chance of setting your eyes on the Northern Lights . A holiday home break in Norway is worth it at any time of the year, since every season offers something special. Take a look at the weather in Norway here!
