The Foreign Ministry indefinitely discourages foreign travel, which is not absolutely necessary due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This has increased the interest in cabins in Norway

– “In recent weeks we have had twice as many searches for cabins as at the same time last year,” says Terje Berge, commercial director of Travel to Finansavisen.

He says they expect very high demand for holiday homes and cabins to rent in Norway this summer. A weakened krone is likely to help Norwegians spend their money on vacation in their own country. Pia Buen in the rental company Novasol confirms the trend with great demand.

Berge also says he expects many of those who do not normally rent out cabins or houses will choose to do so this year, in order to save on revenue. Location is what people are looking for, first and foremost.

– “We see that Northern Norway, Lofoten, Southern Norway, Kragerø and Hvaler are the most popular free-text searches,” says Berge.

The prices in the most popular areas can be as high as NOK 100,000 a week, but of the 5,000 holiday homes that are located on Finn now, there will be many options by the sea for between NOK 15,000 and NOK 20,000 a week, many are already booked for the summer holidays.
