We recommend that all our travellers read through the following information about driving in Norway, what the tour includes, accommodation, deposit payment and other useful information for your travels.
ABOUT OUR SELF-DRIVE TOURS
This is a self-drive tour, which means you will follow a detailed and personalised itinerary during your road trip in Norway. No dedicated driver or tour guide is included. All accommodation, rental vehicle, and other planned activities or added services will be pre-booked by Nordic Visitor (as specified in the itinerary). As this is a self-drive tour, you are welcome to stop when and where you wish on your drive. Except for accommodation and booked activities, other highlights we’ve listed in the itinerary are suggestions based on Nordic Visitor favourites.
For inexperienced drivers who still want to explore and discover Norway, we recommend one of our guided small group tours, where you will have a local, experienced guide leading the way.
Our team of Norway travel experts carefully select hotels around the country based on excellent ratings, personal experience and comfort. Please note, that in Norway our room types are based on European standard sizes. For instance, a double bed often consists of two single beds pushed together. Triple rooms include a double bed along with an extra bed, a rollaway or a sofa bed, and a single room is often smaller than the standard double. Your tour also includes a stay at a cosy fisherman’s cabin.
This tour includes a stay in a fisherman cabin in the small fishing village of Reine. The cabin is cosy and rustic, while keeping modern comforts like a kitchen, appliances and free Wifi. The cabin offers a fjord view and if the conditions are right, you might see the northern lights from your cabin. There is also a restaurant on site, that serves fresh, local food.
This tour includes a roundtrip flight from Svolvær to Oslo, and back. We will book the best flight for your itinerary, and most flights include a short stop in Bodo. Other flights, such as international flights to and from Norway, are not included in the cost of this tour and are not arranged by Nordic Visitor.
DRIVING IN NORWAY
For information on driving in Norway we recommend that you take a look at our online travel guide. There you will find handy information on tolls, ferries, tunnels and more! In general, the roads in Norway are of high standard and are well-maintained. Rural roads are generally two lanes and can be narrow and winding, particularly in mountainous areas. Norwegians drive on the right side of the road.
All bookings are charged in Euros (EUR). Prices displayed in other currencies are indicative only and based on the daily exchange rate. Therefore, conversions from EUR to other currencies will fluctuate from day to day.
