During the months of December, January, and February, the days are short and the nights long. North of the Arctic Circle the sun doesn’t rise for weeks or even months. Skiing is the national pastime, and people flock to the north to see the northern lights.

Fresh fish is also at its best in the winter, and many restaurants in Norway offer cod, halibut, salmon and trout of the highest quality at this time. Read more about Norwegian seafood.

Dishes based on fish, mutton, pork, or deer will also be popular Christmas food and can be found at many restaurants in the run-up to the holiday season. Some traditional Norwegian dishes you should try are “smalahove” (sheep’s head), “lutefisk” (cod soaked in lye) and “pinnekjøtt” (dried, salted and steamed sheep ribs).
