An increasing number of Norwegians are planning for a Norwegian holiday this summer, shows a new survey from Innovation Norway.
Two out of three Norwegians state that they want to spend their holiday in Norway, and nine out of ten choose to travel with their own car.
Like the survey done in May, there are still trips in their own region that are at the top. Half of those who go on Norwegian holidays plan trips of up to a week. The survey was conducted by Epinion for Innovation Norway.
– “We see that fewer respond that they want to take the holiday spontaneously, which we hope and believe means that more are good at pre-booking – and not least have decided where and how the Norwegian holiday will be,” says tourism director Bente Bratland Holm in Innovation Norway
The survey also shows that several Norwegians consider it attractive to holiday in Norway and that they have gained better knowledge of what to experience. At the same time, many believe that Norwegian holidays are too expensive.
– “We choose to rejoice that the interest in Norwegian holidays is increasing among Norwegians. We hope and believe that during the summer we will have many more Norwegian ambassadors in our own ranks – who will change their perception of what it means to be on a Norwegian holiday,” says Bratland Holm.
The proportion who do not want to take a holiday has also increased since the previous survey and is 14 percent.
