Many people associate Norway with cold Arctic climate and do not suppose any swimming opportunities are possible. In fact, summer in Norway is pleasantly warm, especially in the areas surrounded with mountains, where water temperatures are bearable enough to bathe, and midnight sun turns the ordinary swimming into quite an extraordinary experience. The western fjord area and the eastern side of the southern mountains provide excellent scenic swimming spots. Gamle Bergen and Helleneset are considered the most popular swimming areas.
