Bring your four-legged friend with you on a fur-cation to Norway! It's a very dog-friendly country. Since many of Norway's bucket list experiences are found outdoors, it's very easy to take your dog with you on your adventures.

There is no reason to leave the family's best friend behind when the rest of you go on holiday. Travelling is so much more fun when accompanied by a dog!

Here is everything you need to know about travelling to Norway with your pet.

Everything you need to know

Plan your trip with your furry friend!

HOTELS: Most hotels in Norway are dog friendly or have designated dog friendly rooms, but always ask in advance. There is usually an additional fee for dogs.

DOG PARKS: You have to keep your dog on a lead, but some parks have separate areas for dogs where they can run free and play with other dogs.

PUBLIC TRANSPORT: Dogs mostly ride for free, but need to be on a lead and not sit directly on seats.

RESTAURANTS AND CAFÉS: Dogs are welcome at outdoor areas in many restaurants and cafés, but some few also allow dogs to sit by your table inside. Some even have their own dog menu! Pets are allowed in places with food and drink service as long as they are not a danger to the food or other guests. If another guest, or an employee, is allergic or experiences discomfort around dogs, then the staff have the right to ask you and your dog to leave. This applies both outdoors and indoors.

These rules apply to all restaurants in Norway, pursuant to The Norwegian Food Safety Authority.

Ready for a bark-tastic time?

Grab a cup of coffee, enjoy a restaurant meal or meet up with friends without leaving your dog alone at home.
