Norway is one of Europe’s most affluent countries. It is a popular destination for travelers with a deep passion for natural beauty and has little regard for cold. The stunning gorges, the snowy mountains, the ethereal waterfalls, the friendly locals, and the Scandinavian cuisine are just but a few of the alluring attractions that bring in millions of visitors to this home of unique phenomena such as the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun. To get the best out of your visit, make sure to join the best tours in Norway. If you are planning a trip, you can be rest assured that you will have a packed itinerary from the moment your plane touches down to the moment you leave. But first, you need to secure a comfortable and convenient place for your accommodation. Read below for our recommendations for the best Airbnbs in Norway.

1. Mountain glamping in Forde (from USD 405)

This ultimate glamping experience up in the mountains of stunning Forde is a fine, fine choice for couples. This lodging resembles a bird box and the bedroom opens right into the spectacular view of the mountain ranges of Blegja and Fordefjord. Imagine being snuggled up with your loved one waking up to one of the most remarkable views in existence. We reckon there’s no better way to spend your romantic getaway in Norway. Be sure to bring everything you’d need before going to the Birdbox since the closest grocery store is still in the town proper.

15. Cozy mountain cabin with a stunning vista in Bodo

It is a tiny mountain cabin in Norway with incredible sea views below. It is tastefully designed, with a spacious front porch ideal for evening relaxation while you watch the sunset. You will be excited to learn that it is a relatively secluded cottage, with no running water, though the sea is just 120 m (393.7 ft) away. Electricity is supplied by a 12 V solar panel. There is a decent kitchen with all the essentials you may need to prepare a decent home meal. If you are looking for a rather rustic experience in a place close to some of the country’s popular hiking trails, then this will be suitable accommodation for you. But if you can’t stay in a place without running water, then you will be better off with other options.
