Known as the land of the midnight sun, Norway is arguably one of the most beautiful countries in the world. With striking fjords and dramatic mountains, endless daylight in the summer and Northern Lights in the winter. Norway is the destination of most photographers’ dreams. The capital city of Oslo has excellent museums and restaurants, while the northernmost parts of the country sit above the Arctic Circle.
QUICK NORWAY FACTS
Currency: Norwegian Krone can be withdrawn from ATMs throughout Norway, however keep in mind that smaller cities or towns may not have access to ATMs and its recommended to withdraw cash and take it with you.
Power Points: Most power points are the same as most other European power points (2 circular prongs). I would recommend you take a Travel Adapter especially for non Europeans.
Official Language: The official language of Norway is Norwegian and Sami.
Health: There are no major health concerns in Norway for travellers. I would recommend that you contact your doctor a few weeks before you travel as in some cases you need to start any medication a few days before your trip or you may need to get a vaccination. The tap water is generally safe to drink, however, if you are unsure, make sure to ask your hotel receptionist or host.
