Overview

Itching to study abroad in the wilds of Scandinavia? Scenic vistas and complete wilderness are never far away, wherever you’re situated in Norway.

Ranked as one of the top three most literate countries in the world, Norway takes education seriously. It also values free time, Mother Nature, and outdoor activity year-round. If you’re into downhill or cross-country skiing, hiking or trekking through the wide open wilderness, this is the ultimate destination. Out in the countryside there are tree houses, reindeer, and forests that go on forever. What can you do here? Wonder at the reindeer and Northern Lights in Arctic Norway. Travel back to the Viking days further south in Oslo’s living-history museums. Get cozy in front of a fire wearing a pair of hand-knit woolen socks to experience true koselig culture — a close cousin or the same things as hygge in Denmark, depending on who you consult. With Norway as your home base, you’ll live with a local host family and be fully immersed in the Nordic culture — shopping, helping prepare meals, and dining most evenings together. On weekends you can explore further afield and enjoy excursions with HSA peers in Sweden and Denmark.
