Places to visit in Norway

Trondheim - The thirds largest city in Norway, and the country's ancient capital, Trondheim is the place to visit if you are looking to immerse yourself in Norway's rich history.

Svalbard - if you are looking for a more visceral experience of Norway's natural beauty, then a trip to the northernmost permanently inhabited spot on the planet may be just for you. A photographer's dream, Svalbard is an island largely untouched by human habitation and home to incredible wildlife, such as polar bears, reindeer, seals and walruses.

Western Fjords - Norway's famous fjords can be found throughout the country, but it are those found in the Western regions that are some of the most impressive. The Trollstigen road, Nigardsbreen and Geirangerfjord are just a few of the places worthy of any bucket-list.

Paying for things

Norway is one of the most expensive countries you can visit, with Oslo being one of the most expensive cities in Europe; depending on your budget, you might have to scrimp and save where you can. Some visitors to Norway restrict themselves to just one meal out per day, the rest of the time eating food from the supermarket.

  • Alcohol is especially expensive here, with a hefty 25% tax being added to any beer, wine or spirits with an alcohol percentage above 5%.
  • A pint of beer will cost around 86 NOK - around £7-8
  • Cheapest varieties of wine - 400 NOK (approx £33)
  • A meal at the mid-range restaurant - 800 NOK excluding alcohol (approx £67.48)

Whatever you decide to do, remember that this is not a cash-based community — everywhere has card payment terminals, even street food stalls and the smallest of shops.
