Nudism in Norway is not uncommon and widely accepted. There are about 20 declared nude beaches ("free beaches") along Norway's coastline and fjords at the moment. However, besides those official beaches, nudists in Norway have unlimited possibilities all over the country to take a swim in the nude without being embarrassed or embarrassing anybody. And the long coast line helps to find a private bathing spot at any time.
Among many others, popular free naturist beaches and CO (clothes optional) beaches in Norway are:
- In the Oslo region: Huk Nude Beach, Strandskog Nude Beach on the Bunnefjorden, Kalvøya Nude Beach in Sandvika.
- In western Norway: Kollevågen beach on Askøy island near Bergen, Hjertøya Nude Beach in Molde, Mauren Nude Beach near Alesund.
- Central/northern Norway: Ursetvika Nude Beach near Saltfjorden/Bodø, Djupvika Nude Beach by Trondheim (now closed).
