Climate and best time to travel

In Noorway main roads are accessible in the summer, but there are roads that are still closed in June because of the snow. Keep that in mind.


Compare car rent

In Norway you'll find ATMs virtually everywhere.

If you know in advance which places you're going to visit, you can find out online if and where there are ATM's where you can use your MasterCard and Cirrus or Visa to withdraw money.


Norway is great for camping, but because the weather isn't always good, you may want to consider staying in cabins part or all of your vacation. You can rent those everywhere, or book in advance. Camping sites usually have a few simple cabins in which you can stay when it rains. In that case you'll have to check in early.

Plan your trip to Norway online

Through online reservation systems like À la Carte Vacations you can book airline tickets, hotels, rental cars and holiday houses. You can build a fly-drive itinerary with maximum flexibility, book a flight plus a hotel hotel for a night or weekend. Without the limitations of package deals from travel organisations and most times for a much better price.
