Around the world, travellers choose Airbnb to enjoy unique experiences in local homes beyond tourist hotspots. In Norway, Airbnb guests have been able to discover the country’s natural richness in the fjords and to explore iconic cities such as Oslo and Bergen in an authentic way. Hosts from around the country are open to home sharing and are keen to welcome guests, with arrivals growing year-on-year. Home sharing helps spread tourism across Norway and by doing so, it provides economic benefits to local communities and families.
