Top 5 Travel Tips to Norway – Everything You Need to Know

Norway is one of the most beautiful countries on our planet; however, trips to Norway don’t necessarily have to be crazy expensive. Nature is what makes Norway outstanding and we would most certainly suggest visiting Norway to enjoy the sights, scenery and Northern Lights!

However, to get the most of the country, you should know a few things.

1.Way of traveling

Renting a car in Norway is expensive, so joining a group tour or taking the train is a viable and affordable option. The legendary Norway in a Nutshell Tour takes you through Norway’s most breathtaking UNESCO-protected fjord and mountain scenery. From the scenic train, you can jump on a cruise and soak up the rugged beauty of the fjords and glacial wonders.

2. Packing tips

Dress warm, even in summer.

3. Safety

Traveling is safe, but beware of pickpockets in Oslo.

4. When to go

Traveling in the summer is excellent when the endless hours of daylight give you a lot of time to explore the country.  The winters in Norway are cold and long, but winter is the best time to see the legendary northern lights and the white snowy landscapes.

5. Independent Norway travel or tour

There are many different ways to travel to Norway. You can choose to partake in a guided Norway bus tour or travel independently and join some local tours.

Some of the destinations in Norway are quite remote, and it is not safe to travel without someone who knows how to travel there safely. On the other hand, if you prefer having it all for yourself, Norway gives you as much solitude as you need when going independently.

If you are an experienced traveler, you can fully enjoy the freedom of being independent from a group; however, if you are new to travel, a guided tour is not only an excellent introduction to seeing the country, but could be less costly as well.

Enjoy this exceptionally beautiful country!
