Regular visitors to Norway’s world famous mountain regions enjoyed more company than usual over the summer of 2013 after an enormous rise in mountain tourism. The Norwegian Tourist Association reported a 22% climb in overnight stays in mountain regions from 2012, which was a good year itself!
So what’s got so many grabbing their hiking boots and hitting the hills? The Tourist Association’s General Secretary, Kristin Krohn Devold, believes that mountain holidays are becoming a ‘must’ among many travellers as an annual summer break. Regardless of the cause, the figures are undeniable with Jotunheiman remaining the most popular destination for a Norwegian mountain experience.
