    Fancy experiencing the spectacular natural beauty of Norway from the comfort of a bubble hotel, log cabin or igloo? You can do just that with a glamping trip in Norway, spending time among the country’s beautiful fjords, lush forests and stunning mountains while enjoying all the conveniences of your luxury accommodation.

    Get up close to nature without sacrificing your comfort on a Norway glamping vacation. You can find out everything you need to know to plan the perfect Norway glamping experience here, including top accommodation options and where to go glamping in Norway.

    What is Glamping?

    Glamping is ‘glamorous camping’, giving you all the traditional benefits of camping, but a more luxurious experience. When glamping, you’re essentially experiencing an upmarket version of camping, where you can still be close to nature, but enjoy all the conveniences of a modern accommodation solution.

    You’ll find all the facilities and amenities you need to experience Norway in comfort, including a large bed, bathroom and electricity. Glamping options are usually located in fairly remote or secluded natural areas, away from big towns or cities, so you can soak in the beautiful natural environment in style.

    If you choose to go glamping, you won’t have to bother with any of the worst aspects of camping, including the not-so-comfy air mattresses and sleeping bags, the cold of staying in a tent and needing to construct and carry all the equipment. Phew!

    Can You Go Glamping in Norway?

    Yes! Norway has a whole range of glamping options, including some really unique accommodation solutions that you’ll only find in this beautiful Nordic nation. When glamping in Norway, you can choose from bubble rooms, glass igloos, Arctic domes, yurts and other beautiful glamping options.

    If you’ve considered camping in Norway, you might like to upgrade your experience and explore the options for glamping in Norway instead! Just keep in mind that glamping is, of course, more expensive than camping, so the cost of your Norway trip will be higher if you decide to go glamping.

    You can go glamping in Norway at any time of year, whereas camping can be too cold during the winter months. If you plan to visit Norway in summer, such as a Norway July vacation, you could choose between glamping and camping, as it will most likely be warm enough for either. Glamping will always be more comfortable, though!
