Norwegians are spending big money on domestic holidays this year

Norwegians have spent a lot of money on Norwegian holidays this year. But so far this summer, DNB’s customers have spent somewhat less money outside their own home county than last year.

DNB’s customers have so far this summer spent 3% less outside their own county than in the same period last year, but the spending is still far greater than in the pre-corona year of 2019, figures from DNB show.

During weeks 25, 26, and 27, Norwegians’ spending in Norway was up 29% compared to the same weeks in 2019.

The increase is particularly large in a number of smaller tourist municipalities. In Salangen, spending has doubled (up by 100%) from 2020. In Værøy in Nordland, spending is up 99%, while Grue, Vevelstad, and Kautokeino have also registered sharp increases in spending. 

Major increases in spending

Værøy also has the second-largest increase since 2019 (217%). At the same time, Stryn, which is up 231% since 2019, is down by 15% since last year.

The island municipality of Leka (216%) and Stranda (205%) have also registered an increase of over 200% since 2019.

Nationally, hotel use, in particular, has increased. Until this summer, DNB’s customers have spent 50% more on hotels in Norway than in 2020.
