Norway Travel Information

Traveling By Car In Norway

Car rental in Norway is quite expensive. Nevertheless, the main road in Norway is very well-maintained. All of the major international car rental companies are represented. EU driver’s licences are honored in Norway but visitors from other countries will need an international driver’s license. Road regulations are strictly enforced, particularly those relating¬† to drunken driving.

In the dark winter months many minor roads in Norway close for safety reasons.


Traveling By Train

A lot of rail services link Norway with the rest of Scandinavia and mainland Europe. The major point of entry to Scandinavia from mainland Europe is Copenhagen. A Norway rail pass allows unlimited travel on all trains in Norway for a specified number of days in a given period. The pass is available from rail ticket agents in Norway and abroad.


Traveling By Bus And Taxi

Buses cover the length and breadth of Norway and are useful for getting to places the train network does not reach Bus journeys are also reasonably priced. Most long distance buses are operated by the national company.


Traveling By Sea

Ferries from Germany, Denmark, and Sweden make daily crossings to Norway. It is also possible to travel directly from Newcastle in the UK. It takes 27 hours. Routes are operated by Fjord Line and DFDS Seaways.

Once in Norway, you are never very far from the sea and local ferries are an invaluable means of transportation across the fjords. Hurtigruten, the Norwegian Coastal Express service, sails from Bergen to Kirkenes, far above the Arctic Circle, putting in at 35 ports en route. It is a superb way to see Norway’s dramatic coastline. Call ferry companies OVDS or TFDS to make reservation.
