One of the best things about visiting Norway is having the chance to get close to some raw, untamed nature. Fortunately, there are lots of amazing cottages available for visitors to rent. These cottages and cabins are often in spectacular locations, surrounded by some of Europe’s (if not the world’s) most dramatic scenery. You can choose to stay close to the capital in the scenic Oslofjord, or rent an edge-of-the-world hideaway on the mountainous Lofoten Islands, way up in the north of Norway. Rental prices are surprisingly affordable, especially compared with staying at a hotel, but it still pays to travel outside of summer if you want the best rates.
