  "I should have checked the web cam..."
by Saagar

Much Norway-bashing concerns the weather, and rightly so. But I will defend poor much-battered and weather-beaten Norway: this longish and divided country doesn't have such a thing as uniformly bad weather.

You have one week to spare and want sun and warmth? Depending on the season and your wallet, you will have the chance to fulfill your wishes. Just remember that warmth is a relative concept and that the latitude sometimes beats the thermometer.... To experience the good weather, you may have to move out of the region you are in. See my weather tips in my Travelogue "How to beat the Weather - travel tips" on my Norway pages.

A short-cut is to take a look at the web cameras at www.aftenposten.no/webcam/ . The opening page here gives you live sights from 8 cities all over Norway. In the column to the right of those web camera photo frames you will see "Norge" (Norway) and a list of the counties of Norway. Click here for a more detailed list of web cameras to view your destination. The text in the Norwegian merely tells the position and views (street and place names) of the camera you have chosen. Another set of web cams is provided by www.vg.no/foto/kamera , but I think Aftenposten's is of better quality.

When you have your destinations and approximate itinerary set up, consult the web camera availability, check out those along your itinerary and polish your itinerary according to the weather conditions viewed. If you are really into it, click them in as "favourites" and you can check on this continually.
