Oct 26th 2014 at 11:52 PM



Every traveler has his or her own suggestions to give about visiting a country and going on a vacation. Here, we have the best of advices on how to have the ultimate trip to Norway with minimal cost and maximum fun.

Let’s start our Norway travel tips guide with some budgetary suggestions. As suggested by a local, Norway is not the place to for all the drinking and the partying. It’s far too expensive for such an extravaganza. However, Norway has some of the most beautiful and serene sights to offer. The best part: there is no cost to them. Go enjoy a hike and behold views that will leave you breathless. Try cooking your own food – why do you want to spend excessive amounts of money on subpar food? Get the Norwegian delicacies and cook them, that’ll an adventure and experience in itself.

Take a drive around the Fjords and prepare to be awestruck. What you will see is sea water with a glacier’s reflection in it, tempting to go, right? Makes you want to hop into a plane and head up there ASAP. Make sure that your trip has this one sight on the itinerary for sure; it is not to be missed. Take the train, to be cost-effective, and you’ll find yourself on one of the most beautiful, picturesque and marvelous train rides in the world.

Word of caution for travelers and tourists: while this article might be telling you that Norway is expensive, something you’ll learn yourself once you’re there, don’t mention it in public when you are actually in Norway. The Norwegians are well aware of this fact and don’t need foreigners whining about it to them. What they will appreciate, however, is if you learn some words from their language. That goes a long way in impressing the locals, despite their impeccable English, and making new friends.

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on a hostel, hotel or B&B, Norway offers some great Couchsurfing opportunities. You get to meet new people, make friends and get to have a unique experience that you would otherwise miss out on by staying by yourself.

For the nature lovers and those greatly interested in driving around the Fjords, Bergen is a great city to stay in. it’s small but it’s charming and the locals will welcome you with open arms. It’s a city surrounded by incredible sights and beautiful places for a quiet getaway with a book or a fun-packed family picnic. Anything you can think of to enjoy the nature here is allowed.

If you’ve decided to head over to Norway, dress warm even if it is the summer and while the country is very safe, there’s no harm in being aware of pickpockets. It’s best to travel in the summer with the weather a little warm and the people cheery in the long summer days as opposed to the dreary winter days. So use your Ana miles, or any frequent flyer miles that you possess, and head on over to Norway!
