    Norway Frequently Asked Questions

    Is it necessary to have a visa to visit Norway?
    For travelers from European countries, Canada & the United States, Mexico & Central America, and Australia & New Zealand, a visa is not necessary. If you are traveling from another country, a visa will likely be necessary, and you should check with your country's state department for more information on travel requirements.

    Is tipping customary in Norway?
    Tipping isn't necessary, but if you enjoy good service in a restaurant, bar, or cafe, it is appreciated if you leave some spare change on the total. Gratuities are always a personal decision and we leave those up to travelers on their own terms.

    What is the internet access like in Norway?
    Throughout most of Norway and even in Svalbard (Spitsbergen) you will find that there is high speed internet access via WiFi hotspots and cyber cafes. Of course, in open ocean on cruises and on the more remote sites of the northern tundra you should not expect internet access.

    Can I use my cell phone in Norway?
    Mobile phones generally get pretty good coverage throughout the developed areas of Norway as long as you have activated global roaming with your service carrier before leaving. In remote parts of the country, service is weaker or you may not get a signal at all.

    Do I need a power adapter/ converter?
    Like most of Europe, Norway has 220-240V electricity with Type F sockets. You will need a power adapter that is compatible with either Type C or Type E/F. If you have electronic devices that cannot accept 230V, like many small appliances from the United States, then you will also need a step-down converter. 

    Approximately what will it cost for (USD):
    A cup of coffee- $4.00
    A Beer- $7.00
    A basic lunch- $12.00
    Dinner- $24.00

    Can I drink the water?
    Unless otherwise indicated, it is safe to drink the tap water.

    What is the most common way of paying for things in Norway?
    The currency in Norway is the Krone, and 1 Krone is approximately 8.50USD. While you should have enough cash on hand for purchases from smaller vendors, most shops, hotels, and stores do accept major credit cards. It is easy to find ATMs throughout the major cities in Norway, but they are less common as you get further into the isolated areas away from the cities.

    Should I purchase travel insurance?
    You should purchase travel insurance. We have affiliates that can offer you discounts, so check out our Once You've Booked page for more details. Travel insurance can make all the difference in the event of an emergency or cancellation.
