Norway Travel Guide
The climate benefits from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, which keeps the coastal ports free of ice throughout the year. Lumber is one of the counties major industries with 12 million hectares of forests accounting for 37% of the land. Despite the coastal mountains holding back the damp, prevailing south-westerly wind the weather remains extremely rainy with up to 200inches falling each year. During winter up to 33ft of snow can accumulate in the mountains with 6 to 10 feet accumulating in the lower slopes. Norway is an incredibly beautiful country with a friendly outgoing population. For travellers who enjoy healthy living and winter sports it really is Shangri La.
