Norway, one of the most gorgeous countries on the planet !
It is hard to describe Norway without using superlatives … It’s landscapes are so fiercely beautiful ! Cosmopolitan and inspiring cities, gorgeous roads, magical Northern Lights, stunning fjords … And so much more ! Get a chance to see the extraordinary midnight sun. WHen, during summer, the sun (almost) nevers sets. Whereas in the winter, there is almost never any sunlight !
Don’t wait any longer and come explore Norway and its impressive glaciers, lovely villages … You will stay speechless when discovering this surprising place !
Ready for adventure ? Let’s get started !
There are many national holidays and festivals all year long :
We speak Norwegian !
Well not exactly since Norwegian isn’t actually a language … But nynorsk and bokmål are ! Bokmål is the most common language you’ll hear.
But don’t worry, pretty much everyone speaks English as well.
Bokmål 101 !
You may need to practice the pronunciation, because it is quite something …
The official currency is the Norwegian Crown, called Nok. 1 Nok = 100 øre. Better get a money converter on your phone so you can manage your expenses more easily.
Life is pretty expensive in Norway … Oslo is known to be one of the most expensive cities in the world !
International credit / debit card (Visa and Mastercard) are accepted everywhere and you will find ATMs very easily.
Be sure to warn your bank that you are traveling so that they won’t block your card for suspect abroad transactions.
Better get a car to get around in Norway, it’s the easiest way.
It is ideal to rent your car with one the big international car rental agencies (Hertz, Sixt..) before arriving, you’ll save some money.
You will have to be at least 21 years old and have had your driver’s licence for over a year. But some companies add a fee for young drivers under 25. If you live outside Europe, better get an International Driving Permit, but if you live in Europe you usual licence should be just fine.
Roads are not free in Norway … every car has a box called AutoPASS linked to the driver’s bank account. Money will be withdrawn from your account each time you pass a “check point”.
If you were wondering what side the steering wheel is on, it’s on the left side and Norwegian drive on the right side of the road.
