Packing and preparing

Norwegian summers are famous for the variety of weather. From hot to cold, from sun to rain and even snow (depending on how high up in the mountains you are), from a breeze to a storm. Be prepared for all of this, especially when hiking or paddling.
In Norway they have a saying: 'There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing'. So now you know what to do. Pack smart!

If you have not planned on extensive hiking or kayaking we still advice you to bring enough WARM clothes (so that you can layer), a water-/windproof jacket, hat (that covers the ears), umbrella, and good shoes to walk in (preferrably waterproof).
