Despite Norwegian traditions of cottage-to-cottage trips (Hiking between cottages) and participating in boat trips, only seven out of ten Norwegians have vacationed without access to electricity in their lives, a new study shows.

Northerners are most accustomed to vacationing without power. However only 22.9 percent of them have ever vacationed without power.
Oslo people are among those who vacationing least without electricity, in the capital 32.8 percent have never been to a vacation without power.

Today, the technology has made it possible to charge your mobile in a mountain hut far from the nearest power grid.

– We see that solar cells come in all sizes and have gradually become a very useful source for cottagers and hikers, says communications director Jeanne Tjomsland.

The survey was conducted by Infact for energy suppliers Fjordkraft. A representative sample of Norwegians of all ages are asked when they last vacationed without access to electricity.
