Due to the temperate waters of the Gulf Stream, Norway has a much milder climate than other parts of the world at the same latitude, such as Alaska, Greenland, and Siberia. The coldest areas in the winter are often inland or far to the north.

The climate in Norway varies a lot from country part to country part, and there can be large variations within the separate regions as well. But in general, the coastal areas usually have relatively mild winters (still with snow and great skiing conditions in the mountains, though), whilst the inland parts have cold winters with plenty of snow, and hot and dry summers.

Southern Norway is considered a summer island paradise, whilst Fjord Norway is maybe at its most beautiful in spring, when the fruit trees are blossoming. Not to mention Northern Norway, where you can get extremely cold temperatures in the winter, whilst the sun is up all night long in the summertime.
