Norway is a year round travel destination, and depending on your themed holiday and desired place to visit, most spectacular seasons are winter and summer.

Also, you have to consider the area and precipitations, cause in Norway the weather can be wet and changeable, so make sure to have with you waterproof clothing.
The largest amounts of precipitation are in Western coast of Norway, and occurs during autumn and winter.
Showery precipitation occurs most frequently in Eastern Norway and Finnmark where summer is the wettest part of the year, and winter and spring the driest.
