Does the norwegian sentence distinguish between the two senses: 1. Are they on holiday, and they are in norway? 2. Are the people in norway on holiday, ie national holiday?

"På ferie" vs "i ferien"; are these (partly) interchangeable?

"På ferie" describes the state of being on vacation, while "i ferien" refers to time. You can't substitute one for the other directly, but it's sometimes possible to rewrite sentences in a way that expresses the same meaning:

"Vi skal på ferie i Norge." vs. "Vi skal til Norge i ferien."
