The number of hotel overnight stays in Norway fell by as much as 65% in February compared with the same month last year, despite a number of quarantine overnight stays.
0.9 million overnight stays were registered at hotels and other accommodations that rent out beds.
That is 1.3 million fewer than the same month last year – just before the pandemic started.
Quarantine-only hotels are not included in the statistics, but Statistics Norway (SSB) has not been able to single out a number of quarantine overnight stays.
Norwegian overnight stays fell by 47%, while overnight stays among foreigners fell by 86%.
There were 40% fewer overnight stays in cabin villages and hostels, while the campsites resisted the crisis: they had a decrease of only 6.6% in February.
