There are regular ferry routes to Norway from Denmark, Germany, and Sweden. Most operators offer package deals for cars with passengers and discounts for seniors, students, and children.

You can bring your bike instead of your car, or you can walk onboard and travel green through Norway. Speaking of green, several ferry operators are now using more environmentally friendly fuel than before. If you are docking in Oslo or Kristiansand, you’ll be happy to know that the majority of the ferries there connect to land-based electric power in order to avoid emissions.
