Norway Budget Travel Tips

  • General Tips: Norway is one of the most expensive countries to visit in the world. Not many things here are cheap but there are ways to keep costs down when travelling here.
  • Food: One of the best recommendations is to avoid eating out, this will be one of your biggest outgoings. A normal meal in a restaurant can be around £20-£40 - and this is nothing amazing either. We recommend buying food at supermarkets where food costs and a lot lower.
  • Accommodation: Like everything else in Norway finding somewhere to stay on the cheap is tough. Hostel dorms are your best option and remember to book well in advance to secure the best deals.
