How to explore Norway's regions
Our country is one of great variations and vast distances. Plan carefully, and don't try to cover everything in just one trip! Check out these wonderful travel itineraries and travel routes, or embark on a pre-packed adventure.
Our best tip: Focus on a region or a specific area, and see more than just the main attractions there. There is so much to see and do, and you don't want to waste your time rushing from one place to another, and end up spending your holiday packing suitcases!
If you are up for a road trip, you should plan to drive one of Norway’s most scenic routes on some of the world’s most beautiful roads! But remember, many of the most scenic roads are narrow and winding, so drive carefully. Driving in Norway usually takes longer time than you think! Top tip: hire an electric car and make your journey more environmentally friendly.
Another good way to cover long distances is by bus or train. Luckily for you, we have some of the world's most stunning rail routes and scenic bus rides! You can also experience a lot of coastal culture and island hopping in a few days with ferries and express boats, as we have one of the longest coastlines in the world. Or cruise comfortably between cities and quaint fishing communities onboard Hurtigruten.
