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: http://www.oslokulturnatt.no
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. http://www.nobelpeacecenter.org/
