Why don't you go to the Norwegian Riviera? Very popular with Norwegian tourists in the summer, this region is not often recommended for a trip to Norway, wrongly so. For a week's stay, it is ideal to explore the Norwegian coastline. Explore the coast and lighthouses, the charm of the provincial towns, the fish markets and the beaches. From June to September, temperatures range between 15 and 22 °C. It is also an ideal trip for small budgets and for those who are afraid of too much cold..
