Which Is Best, A Winter Or Summer Norway Vacation?

While Alan was away attending his Spanish immersion course with Diverbo, I went back to Spanish conversation class for a few weeks.  There was a man from Norway, visiting Spain for a couple of weeks and he was in my Spanish class.  Of course during class we all speak of things we know, but in Spanish and he mentioned some amazing things about his country.  Naturally, I was curious and started to investigate a potential Norway vacation and found a Norway travel guide.  I started to see if this could be a good Winter destination or would it be better to visit Norway in the Summer.
