International tourists have set overnight records with 6.6 million stays at Norwegian hotels this summer, according to new figures from Statistics Norway on Monday.

Germans are the most eager to visit Norway.

Both Norwegian and international tourist stays increased during the summer months but it was the foreign guests that had the greatest percentage growth.

In total, 18.5 million hotel days have been registered from May to August. One in three guests were foreign tourists, figures show.

Since 2015, the number of Norwegian guests has increased by 7 per cent while the number of foreign guests has increased by a full 26 per cent.

German tourists accounted for almost a quarter or 1.5 million of overnight stays this summer, while Dutchmen came in second place.

Another nation worth noting is China, according to Statistics Norway. The number of Chinese tourists staying in hotels in Norway has increased by 53 per cent since 2015 and the number of American travellers has also more than doubled.
