Norway is a country located in the Northern part of of Europe. Its capital is Oslo, and the country has its own Ministry of Magic. The country is perhaps best known for the correspondence between Goodwin Kneen and a wizard named Olaf (a Norwegian) in regards to Quidditch, and its learning in Norway.

Norway has only one team in the European Quidditch cup, the Karasjok Kites.

The Durmstrang Institute is likely located in the extreme north of Norway. Possibly in Svalbard.

Sometime after starting his work with the Department of International Magical Co-operation in 1994, Percy Weasley received some dragon dung in his in-tray, which he excused during a dinner at The Burrow as having been a "sample of fertiliser from Norway" and "nothing personal." Fred Weasley secretly advised Harry Potter that it had been personal, as he and his brother George were the ones that had sent it.[1]
