Events in Norway

Whatever time of year you’re visiting you’re bound to find a fun event, festival or concert taking place somewhere in Norway.

In winter, there’s everything from Christmas fairs around the country to Tromsø’s 10-day Northern Lights Festival. Sports fans will enjoy the epic Holmenkollmarsjen Ski Race or may want to try their hand at the Dølemo axe-throwing championships.

Summer sees music festivals of all kinds taking place around the country from the Midgardsblot Metal Festival, which combines Viking mythology with heavy metal music, to the more mellow Oslo Jazz Festival.
