"Sommer i Palma" ("Summer in Palma") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1961, performed in Norwegian by Nora Brockstedt.

The song is in the chanson style, popular in the early years of the Contest. Brockstedt describes a romance at the Spanish holiday resort of Palma de Mallorca. In spite of the language barrier (her lover variously speaks Spanish and French), she sings that "I understand the looks you are sending".

The song was performed twelfth on the night, following Belgium's Bob Benny with "September, gouden roos" and preceding Denmark's Dario Campeotto with "Angelique". At the close of voting, it had received 10 points, placing 7th in a field of 16.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1962 contest by Inger Jacobsen with "Kom sol, kom regn".
