On holiday in Norway.
The Kingdom of Norway is the most western part of the Scandinavian Peninsula. Characteristic for Norway is the enormous coastline. Because of the many fjords and coves this coastline counts more than 25 thousand kilometres. If you include the coasts of all the islands, you would even end up with about 100,000 kilometres. The landscape of Northern Norway consists of highlands mixed with mountainous areas and lowlands in the east and southeast. The western side of Norway is wet due to the rainfall from the Atlantic Ocean. As a result, the western parts of the country have a temperate maritime climate, which locally changes into a cool maritime climate at higher altitudes. In the south-east, the temperate continental climate is common. Locally, this is also called the Baltic climate. Norway's interior has a cool continental climate, also referred to as a subarctic climate. At higher altitudes, a tundra climate is predominant. The north of Norway consists mainly of tundra.
The climate in Norway
Norway has a mild climate if you look at its position on the world map. Under the strong influence of the Atlantic Ocean, it gets quite cold in the winter, but - considering the latitudes in which the country is situated - it could have been a lot colder. The Atlantic Gulf Stream also ensures that the seawater is relatively warm and therefore hardly ever freezes. Only during very extreme winters can the seawater in the far north of Norway freeze.According to the Köppen-Geiger climate system, Norway has five climates. The coastal areas in the south-west and south have a temperate maritime climate, type Cfb, characterised by relatively mild winters and summers combined with precipitation throughout the year. The inland areas in the south and south-west have a temperate continental climate (type Dfb), where the sea has less influence, the weather is more changeable and the winter months are cooler. Further north, you will find a combination of three climates. For a large part the inland areas have a cool continental climate (type Dfd), changing into a tundra climate (type ET) and in some higher parts in central Norway a high mountain climate (type EH). Approximately ninety percent of Norway falls under the umbrella classification of subarctic climate. Characteristics are the relatively short summers, the possibility of very low temperatures (minus 30 to minus 40 degrees Celsius) in the winter and the large temperature fluctuations possible.
