Half of Norwegians want to go on Easter holidays this year, and 85% of those who plan to go on holiday want to spend the time in Norway, according to a Norwegian Hospitality Association (NHO Reiseliv) survey. 

“I think many people will particularly appreciate this year’s Easter holidays,” Norwegian Hospitality Association leader Kristin Krohn Devold stated. 

She pointed out that in 2020 there was a cabin ban at Easter and that there was a full alcohol-serving ban the year before, with many closed hotels and restaurants.

Every year since 2014, NHO has conducted a survey to map Norwegians’ Easter plans.

The figures show that 66% of those going on holiday in Norway plan to go to a cabin, while 7% plan to stay in a hotel, which is a record number. 19% plan to travel abroad.

The Easter survey from Virke also shows that four out of ten Norwegians plan to go on Easter holidays. Over half of them plan to spend their holidays at the cabin.
