I would have to say Kristiansand.

Judging by Wikipedia's average temperatures list, Bergen is generally warmer than Kristiansand. I have looked into this some, as I am from California and it would be difficult to visit most places in Norway! :)

How does Norwegian grade heat? I've seen varm translated as hot several times. The two words look alike, but in English warm has a comfortable connotation whereas hot is a definite step up. Does varm describe a wider range of temperature than warm in English?

I am not a native speaker, but I have seen one of the mods explain that "varm" means both warm and hot.

When the normal mode of existence is freezing your butt off who needs to distinguish between warm and more warm?

I imagine you can add "veldig" or "for" in front if you want to insist it's hot. At least that's how we do it in French.

Men jeg drukner i regnet her!

Bergen is quite warm, apparently. Its winter average is 4°C, and so substantially above freezing.

Kanskje i Fredrikstad?

is it an euphemism?

Nesbyen innehar Norgesrekorden for høyeste målte temperatur på 35,6 grader, satt den 20. juni 1970. https://no.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nesbyen

There are no "hot" places in norway.

Ma'am, it is called Larvik.

Bergen er ikke så varm!!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/ojosabiertos

Det er sant, men ennå, det varmest i norge!


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Ghayth90

It's definitely Kristiansand


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/DevPreston

Must we say the warmest, det varmest? Can we just say Hvor i Norge er varmest, as we can in English?

I was in Bø once. I think it was in 2013 or 2014 and it was the warmest ever! Was literally sweating. I could not believe that I'm still in Norway.
