Growth for seven consecutive years

Numbers from the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) show that 2017 was yet another record year for Norwegian tourism. A good summer and a relatively weak krone contributed to making the year profitable. The increase in tourists mainly occurred during the summer months, and the regions with the highest growth were Fjord Norway and Northern Norway.

Both nature and culture

More commercial overnight stays than ever

*Tourist arrivals include figures for holiday, leisure, and business travel with at least one overnight stay.

Increased interest online

Many people search for fjords, glaciers, and the northern lights, but also different types of accommodation, cities, and outdoor activities. Rather surprisingly, the three keywords with the greatest growth are “zoos”, “tree house hotels”, and “luxury resorts”.
