Family-friendly places to stay in Norway

Staying in cottages, cabins and lodges is popular for family holidays in Norway, especially when visiting the coasts, fjords and mountains. Some can be luxurious, others more basic. See local tourist board websites for listings. 

Farm-stays are another great option for families: on these seter or støl you can also enjoy outdoor activities such as riding, hiking, canoeing and bush walking. Or try a fisherman’s shack or rorbu – despite their lowly name these are well-equipped apartments, especially prominent on the coast further north. For both, see Visit Norway (visitnorway.com).

Camping amidst Norway’s spectacular landscapes is popular in summer; again, see local tourist board websites for information. Or you might consider a family-friendly youth hostel.
