The figures for the tourist season in Western Norway even surprise the tourism industry. The number of overnight hotel stays has increased by 7 percent.

The increase amounts to around 358,000 more hotel guest nights sold from January to July this year, compared to last year, writes Bergens Tidende.

“I expected an increase of 2-3 percent. Not as much as this,” says Kristian Jørgensen, CEO of Fjord Norway.

Western Norway, from Northwest Norway to Stavanger, accounts for the largest growth on a national basis. Of around half a million extra hotel nights in Norway, 358,000 of the nights were in the west. This represents 71 percent of national growth.
