We have a week\'s holiday in the first week of April and fancy visiting Norway - Oslo/Bergen areas. Can anyone tell me what the weather is like around this time, if it\'s worth going?
Weather in Norway in April differs a lot. Remember, travelling from southern tip to North Cape is a 2500km long journey. Anyway, in the northern part of Norway, and in mountain areas you can expect snow and temperatures around zero degrees celcius plus/minus 5. at that time of the year.
In Oslo and Bergen you can expect around 10 C. It may also be cooler or warmer. Winter is over at that time. Bergen is usually a bit more rainy than Oslo, but weather in Norway is unpredictabel. So if your lucky you can have more than 15 C.
I can recommend going to Oslo and take the train to Bergen (or the other way) Its around 8 hrs trip over the mountain. Do it in daytime and you can experience some beautiful scenery. Bergen is a nice town with around 250 000 inhabitants. From Bergen you can take fast ferries both north and south to see the coast. Bergen is and old Hanseatic town and there is still some old buildings left from that time.
Its worth going and a lot to experience, but its not the cheapest country in Europe. Good luck
