I worked for 3 months and a half through summer and beggining of autumn in Norway, and this year, since december to April, so i got a glimpse of most of the five seasons. Summer was glorious for me, a portuguese with a unnusual love for colder environments and deep disconfort in warmer regions , not only because i managed to have a job but even better — it was on the mountains, for me, a lover of the great outdoors and friluftsliv, a great experience.
Then in Autumn i had the pleasure of contemplating the birch trees getting golden leaves through Molde and Trondheim areas, and that refreshing cold in the air. It was dark, but i deal well with it — and there was the promise of snow i had already spent months at the same time of the year in Sweden so it was fine. Then came the snow and wow!
Fascinating gleaming blue light in the long evenings and the white blanket covering the tops and a lot of hikes and skiing — inspiring and motivating! Now Spring has arrived.
It is quite strange since all grass and nature has been covered in snow and now it is starting to see the daylight. Ground and grass looks brown or greyish but soon it will be green again. It is interesting to see the change, on how the streams run more and the sounds of forest change, the birds starting to sing, and little tiny green grass appearing here and there.
Since you have worked there before, can you please let me know about the weather at that time. I wish to go there for a day holiday. Can you please let me know the attractions at that time. I also wish to see the Northern Lights. In the mountains directly above Geiranger yes absolutely there will be snow. But Geiranger is most definitely not a place to visit in the winter. Also to decide if my priorities are hikings, or catch the northern lights. So much to do, so little time, hehehe. Anyway, available affordable flights for me are from end of August to mid-September.

I have the opportunity to go to Oslo in mid-November.
I know you cannot predict snow, but can I expect to see it then? Also, have you taken the Oslo to Bergan train during that Season and do you recommend it? Impossible to say. The train journey is lovely any time of year, and there will be plenty of snow on the route in November. Just remember the days will be fairly short.
As a fellow Norwegian I agree during winter, but a Norwegian Summer is the most beautiful ever.. Sometimes we long for some romantic place to go far away… norway seems a lot like that, the pictures around the net are awesome and well is not a poor country loaded with crime like many others, maybe when people are there they will freeze to death and want to reconsider things up! In my case I really really wanna go there to visit and see whats like.
Is it the raining Season this time of the year? Thank you. Have fun! Interesting article. Glad I found it. We 4 adults are taking a Viking cruise up the coast of Norway in January-February What would you recommend we take vis a vis boots, long underwear, etc?
