Norway is famous for its mountains, fjords, and all around amazing scenery. Every year tourists from all over the world come to experience the midnight sun, the northern lights, the excellent winter sport facilities and the seemingly endless coastline with its charming towns and majestic fjords.
However, Norway is ranked one of the most expensive countries in the world, and making your holiday-expenses fit your budget will require some local knowledge and a bit of planning. Traveling Norway on a budget is not easy, but definitely possible.
Norway has excellent public transport, fantastic camp sites and several other options that can make your stay in Norway far more affordable. Even though Norwegian hotels are amongst the priciest in Europe, there are suitable options for every budget.
A lot of hotel chains have campaigns and special offers that can prevent you from spending a fortune. Although food and drinks don’t come cheap in restaurants, bars and cafes, there are ways to cut your costs.
You can find moderately priced places to eat in most cities, or save a lot by preparing your own food with store bought groceries.
There are also lots of things to do in Norway that are free, or approximately free, like enjoying the amazing nature.
