You go on holiday to Norway, but still you want to have nice weather. Then a camping in Aust Agder is recommended. Because in general you have here the highest temperature in Norway. It's not for nothing that the coast of this region is called the Norwegian Riviera. With beautiful towns such as Grimstad, Arendal and Risor.
Finnmark may not know everyone, but if I tell you that the North Cape is in this region, you can guess that this region is located in the far north of Norway. This part of Lapland and the beautiful coastline are just too beautiful to drive through. Interesting places: Kirkenes, Honningsvag (near the North Cape), Alta and Hammerfest.
Are you looking for space, peace and natural beauty? Then the Innlandet (Hedmark) region is perfect for you. Huge forests, beautiful lakes, babbling brooks and swirling rivers. This is THE area for nature lovers and walkers. With nice places like Trysil (ski resort), Kongsvinger, Elverum and of course Hamar.
Due to the many campsites and attractions, we have divided the Innlandet (Oppland) region into Oppland North and Oppland South.

The island groups Lofoten and Vesteralen are so beautiful, they really deserve a special mention on our site. Even though they officially fall under Nordland.

But the cities of Stavanger (especially the old town center) and Haugesund are also definitely worth a visit. South of Stavanger you will find the Jaeren area with beautiful white beaches.
Because of the many campsites in Trondelag, we have split the region. The south (Sor) has Trondheim as its main attraction. There you should definitely take a look at the beautiful Nidaros Cathedral. The old mining town of Roros is also very interesting. Impressive: the route over the E6 south of Oppdal.
Anyone who says Telemark immediately thinks of the Telemark Canal. With its 18 locks and 72 m. height difference THE attraction of the Telemark region. But also the impressive Gaustatoppen at Rjukan, the many lakes such as at Seljord and Tinn Austbygd, the beautiful coast at Kragero and the Hardangervidda (on the north side of Telemark) are very interesting.
