A total of 34% of respondents are planning car holidays in Norway this summer, according to a new survey.
A total of 42% in the age group 18 to 29 years are planning domestic car holidays this year, according to a survey Norstat has carried out for NAF.
An active holiday with hiking and nature experiences is also popular with younger Norwegians – 47% said they would go on this type of holiday in 2021.
Many have also discovered new destinations in Norway during the pandemic.
A total of 37% of respondents have been to new destinations in Norway between May 2020 and May 2021. The proportion is highest among the youngest.
According to the survey, a total of 43% in the age groups 18-29 and 30-39 have been to new holiday destinations in Norway in recent years.
“It is nice that a new generation gets to see more of our country and discover the freedom that a car holiday provides,” communications manager Camilla Ryste in NAF noted.
Older Norwegians moving away from campsites
More people are going on cabin trips – to rented or own cabins.
This applies especially to those in the age group 40–49 years, where 58% plan to go on this type of holiday. A total of half of the respondents are going on a cabin holiday.
Relatively few will holiday at campsites – especially older Norwegians.
The survey was conducted in the May 20–27 period. A total of 1,001 people took part in the survey.
