Norway Outline Map

Norway is located in Northern Europe, known for its stunning natural beauty and high standard of living. It has a population of around 5.4 million people and covers an area of 385,207 square kilometers. Norway is bordered by Sweden, Finland, and Russia, and it has a long coastline that borders the North Sea, the Norwegian Sea, and the Arctic Ocean. You can find all these water bodies on our world map with seas.

We offer six different blank maps of Norway on our website, each with its own distinguishing features. The first is a simple outline map only showing the country’s international borders. This map is great for students just learning about Norway or anyone needing a basic reference map.

Norway Blank Map with Counties

Norway is divided into eleven administrative regions, known as counties, which are further divided into 356 municipalities. The island territories of Svalbard and Jan Mayen are governed directly at the national level. The capital city, Oslo, is unique as it is both a county and a municipality.

In 2017, Norway decided to reduce the number of counties from 19 to 11, which took effect on January 1, 2020. However, the decision was met with widespread opposition, which led to the Storting (Norwegian parliament) voting on June 14th, 2022, to undo the reform partially. As a result, 15 counties will take effect from January 1st, 2024. Three of the merged counties are being dissolved, and some minor border changes will be made compared to when they were abolished.
