Why you should visit Norway this fall

5 reasons for bringing your kids to Norway this fall

1. The nature is astonishing at this time of the year, and the capacity at the mountain cabins open for everybody to use are very good. Check out how you can travel with kids  in the mountains for a very reasonable price. Turistforeningen has cabins all over Norway, and make it possible to walk from one cabin to the next. All cabins have fire wood available and food for sale. Kids love to explore the nature, but with cold nights it can be good to sleep inside in a warm cabin instead of in a tent.


2. If you are quick, you can experience Oslo Cultural Night 14. September. This is a great opportunity for families with bigger kids visiting Norway’s capital. Oslo’s cultural institutions extend their opening hours into the night and host unique events within music, theatre, art, literature and film. Everything is free! Culture Night is an annual event, so if you do not manage this year put it on your list for next year. Check out:

3. Go for a night stroll along the rocky shores with a big flash light, a rake and a bucket – and pick your own crabs.

4. Be in Oslo when the next Peace Prize winner is announced and visit the Nobel Peace Center to learn about the stories of Nobel Peace Prize Winners, and teach the kids about the Nobel Peace Price. 12. October will the Nobel Committee announce this year’s winner.

5. Go to a place not too many have visited yet and bring home experiences and stories from “foreign land” ( if you follow our blog the rest of the month we will keep coming with more hints and tips since Norway is our focus for September.

3+ Kids tip: If you are coming to Oslo by air, you should know that you can bring all your kids for free on the Airport Express train (takes 20 minutes from Gardermoen Airport to downtown Oslo)

  1. I love these tips, I think Norway is good for kids any season really! And not as expensive as you would think. Once the Otta tourist office told me though that “there’s nothing to do for kids around here” when I went to ask for some ideas as I had friends visiting with small children (I had none, then). Oh well, we found plenty to do anyway! 🙂

    • Sounds like the person behind the counter did not have to much imagination giving such an answer, but glad to hear that the kids still enjoyed the stay.
