The five traditional regions of Norway. Sørlandet is more recent, while the other four are ancient. At least parts of Møre og Romsdal - particularly Nordmøre - identifies more with Trøndelag than with Vestlandet.

Norway is divided into five major regions (landsdeler) based on geographical and also dialectical differences. Administratively, these regions play less of a role – the major administrative units are at county level. These regions should not be confused with the Metropolitan regions of Norway, which are metropolitan areas based on Norway's main cities.
