The weather in Norway is usually stable in summer, with pleasant temperatures on land and at sea. In summer, the days are long and the nights are short. The temperature is around 20-25℃.

Dressing guide
The weather in Norway is more stable in summer, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t change suddenly. To be on the safe side, it is recommended that you bring more clothing and wear it according to the temperature. For example, bring at least one warm jumper, waterproof coat or umbrella, and wear comfortable sneakers or hiking shoes.
If you’re going hiking in the mountains or deep into the fjords or mountains, be prepared for all kinds of weather, and bring waterproof and windproof clothing, and wear wool. And in the evening and after the night, the temperature will be lower.

Tips: While the wind may feel cool in summer, the sun is much stronger than you think, so be sure to take precautions.


Norway is a schengen visa country. You can check the latest information requirements and fill in the visa application form online on the website of the Norwegian visa center.

Summer may participate in kayaking, rafting, seaside play and other water activities, remember to pay attention to safety, according to the individual’s physical condition optional participation. If you’re going to the beach, be sure to test the water before you go into the water. The water may be colder than you expect.

Many people think that the landscape of the fjords is largely the same, but if you visit Norway in person, it will refresh your understanding. Each fjord has its own essence and is one of nature’s most unique wonders. This summer, try one of Norway’s four fjords.

How To Make The Travel Guides

Many people make travel guides to avoid being embarrassed when traveling. How do you make them?

First, The Strategic Destination – Destination is absolutely the most important part in the tourism strategy. Only by choosing a good destination can we make the next step better.

Second, Choose the right travel tools according to your time on the basis of destination. Subway and high-speed rail can be good choices for travers who have sufficient time. Planes make it faster to get back and forth between destinations and spend more time on the destination.

Third, we can book the hotel in advance according to the time we stay in the place. In order not to restrict our schedule, please do not book in the same hotel. It is best to choose a hotel near the location you will be arriving at each day based on the general location. The Internet can efficiently help us choose a hotel that is convenient, comfortable and cheap.

Fourth, after solving the problem of travel and residence, we can see the local special scenic spots on the Internet, which can make the time of the day more detailed. For example, when to go and whereto go, tickets are needed or not , all need to be considered.

Fifth, after a few days of refinement, the basic tour guide has been completed, but we still need to prepare for the cost of food and short distance transportation. After all, these two prices are not very good to budget.

Travel around the world concept in Summer vacation

Sixth, if you have enough money, please be prepared for the unexpected money. Of course, a travel insurance is the most appropriate.

Keep these in mind, and a new journey can begin!

Travel seems to me to be a rather wholesome exercise, in which the mind is constantly engaged in the activity of new and unknown things – Montaigne

Travel To Northern Europe – Iceland

  1. Safe enough

Iceland has a small population and relatively few immigrants. It’s very safe. There are almost no security concerns. I read a post on the Internet that Iceland’s police had too much time to amuse cats, feed ducks and play with snow, several photos of officers licking ice cream on patrol went viral.

  1. Beautiful as an alien planet

Iceland is best known for its unusual landform, which is so similar to the moon that astronauts buzz aldrin and Neil Armstrong, the first men to land on the moon, practiced there. Nature is a masterpiece of artists, a person looking at those beautiful scenery to suffocate, the heart will always have a different feeling.

  1. Human Interest

Nordic countries have high levels of happiness, and it’s easy to feel good about people. Let me tell you a little thing. On the first day I came to Iceland, my lens was broken. My friend suggested that I return to China for warranty. Uncle in the shop said it was broken, if you need to repair three or four days back to the factory, but I want to take photos these days. To my surprise, he went into the back room and took the same shot. He said, “take it away and return it to me before you leave.” then he gave me a business card of the store. That kind of trust makes the world feel good.

  1. Be a daydreamer for once

Many people grow grass in Iceland because of the movie “day dreamers,” in which the hero, a strange otaku, goes on a daring adventure to win the heart of a girl, including a trip to Iceland.

For the fans, going to the scene in the movie is like having a beautiful dream.

  1. Iceland has music

I once heard people joke that why are computers so strong in Finland? Because they get dark so early, they get bored and have to write code at home. In Iceland, they must be free to make art. Although Iceland is not a big place, there are too many famous musicians, such as Sigur Ros, neoclassical Olafur Arnalds, electronic mum, popular folk songs Of Monsters and Men…

Or maybe you’ve heard reykjavik’s name in Hong Kong,
“There is a ray of light at the North Pole, and your words have been left to me.”


1) Apart from the capital, reykjavi, Iceland is sparsely populated and has very poor public transportation. The road condition is more dangerous in winter, a person chooses carefully.

2) Book hotels and Tours separately depending on where you want to go. Some of them are day or half-day Tours, such as ice cave expeditions and glacier hikes, which must be accompanied by a guide. There are also big organized Tours on the Internet, but there were a few places I wanted to go that didn’t suit me.

3) Buy discounted tickets

I like northern Europe, Denmark, Norway, Sweden


Iceland has many unforgettable memories of seeing the aurora borealis. When taking a bath, I thought it was a gas leak, so I dressed to run for my life, It turned out to be the smell of geothermal water; Stay overnight on a ranch with only two families, terrifyingly quiet, but got a restful sleep.

My friend and I spent 17 days driving by ourselves, sleeping until we woke up and then driving for two or three hours. Bubble hot spring in the town that has hot spring and go to the supermarket for dinner and breakfast the next day and a snack in a bit bigger town. Our car is full of snacks just like the kindergarten spring tour bus.

If you are busy and don’t have much time or savings, don’t worry. Because it’s not good to go to Iceland too early, and then go somewhere else, and it’s not good to go anywhere else.

But I think I may not go to the second time, not because of anything else, but for a good memory once is enough. And there are so many wonderful places in the world that I haven’t set foot in.

What I did in Iceland?

1. Self-driving

The beauty of Iceland is not a scenic spot, but the scenery along the road. Self-driving is the best way to get around, to feel like you’re driving at the end of the world.

When we were on the sinai peninsula, the sky suddenly turned dark and dense in the middle of the road. There was a hole in the cloud through which the light shone like an alien coming to earth, and we drove through the light.

In the troll peninsula, feelling the deep rock valley, river raging, the wind swept up the stimulation, like a typhoon day, the cat in bed, feel very safe; On the longa peninsula, we drove on deserted highways that stretched as far as the eye could see, the grass as far as the eye could see, and the sea as far as the eye could see.

That’s the fun of driving in Iceland.

2. The Aurora

There’s nothing more to look forward to than an aurora.

If you haven’t seen it, and you’re not particularly looking forward to it, you’re probably thinking that the aurora borealis in the photographer’s image must have been beautified.

But after seeing it, you’ll be sure to include the aurora as one of the “most beautiful sights,” because no camera equipment can capture the shock of the aurora.

The whole sky is surrounded by colorful light, like a huge screen, all kinds of high saturation of light, red purple green yellow…… Quick flash. You don’t have time to scream.

If the aurora is weak, it’s just green. So many posts on the Internet will say that the aurora is only green, other colors are photographic effects. Not really.

Tips for seeing aurora : Iceland met office predicts auroras with high accuracy. The aurora is most often seen at 11pm, in the previous proposal to turn off the lights in the house, found out the window there is a sign of clothing, rushed out!

3. Geysers

Geysir geyser, which erupts every 8 minutes, is amazing to see with your own eyes.

I also joked with my friends that there were some indians down there, pushing a switch every 8 minutes…

4. Watner national glacier park

The image most people have of Iceland is one of icebergs. Maybe Iceland needs ice.

But actually in Iceland, I don’t think it’s beautiful.

Glacier park does not charge admission (Iceland has almost no ringed attractions, all of which are accessible by car), but there are toll yachts that allow you to see the glacier up close. But I personally think the experience is also very general, not the service is not good, but the glacier here, closer but not far look good. If the season is right, consider hiking on a glacier.

5. Myvatn

Myvatn is a must for most tourists, can play a lot of items, the scenery is also beautiful. I’ve lost track of how many rainbows I’ve seen at Myvatn.

Go to Dimmuborgir park for a hike and take a picture at lava arch, or go to Grjotagja cave to see the place where Jon lost his virginity, as well as the falls of the gods.

6. Whale watching (husavik)

Khusavik is one of Iceland’s great towns. Although it’s not very well housed or fed, it has a great program — whale watching.

But the chances of seeing a whale are too high to go for nothing. If you can, choose a small speedboat, because when you see a whale, the speedboat can fly quickly

7. Museum of witchcraft (Holmavik)

Very, very realistic

About the accommodation

In Iceland, a b&b costs almost the same as a hotel, but it’s much more comfortable than in a hotel.

I prefer to stay in a b&b, where I can feel the local people and feel at home. In Iceland we were often the only people in the whole building, as if we were just living somewhere else.

Many who have been to Iceland say the accommodation is poor. I guess they’re staying in a hotel. Indeed, the hotel is very general, the decoration style is also very backward. However, I personally think the homelands are very good, with strong Nordic decoration, clean and modern, a lot of bathroom floors have floor heating, and I feel so happy when I walk barefoot on them. Besides, the facilities are also very complete (in Iceland, it is really important to have a kitchen if you don’t want to treat your stomach badly).

But what are the advantages of staying in a hotel? You can always ask the front desk if you have any questions, and there is no need for breakfast. Unlike in Iceland, there are restaurants everywhere. Having a kitchen is really important if you don’t want to shortchange your stomach.

Hidden in a grove of birches, I thought I was going the wrong way. Go out at night to see the aurora, very beautiful, there is no light pollution.

The owner is very warm and well-dressed, even at home, he will neatly wear a suit.
