Car Rental in Norway - Explore Fjords and Scenic RoutesNorway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery, so there are obvious benefits with car rental in Norway for those who enjoy taking scenery in at their leisure. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. Norway was an old Viking kingdom. The capital is Oslo, a beautiful setting and lively nightlife and cultural scene. In winter, cross-country skiing, alpine skiing and snowboarding are very popular. In summer, hiking and biking are obvious ways to enjoy the enormous mountain areas. For the adventurous, kayaking, wildwater rafting, paragliding, cave or glacier exploration are possible.
Car tourists will enjoy driving along the fjords and mountains in the west or to the midnight sun in the north.
Public transport in the main cities is generally good,but getting out to the fjords and the rivers is often only possible by rental car. Northern Norway is sparsely populated and driving is often the only means of transport. For those who travel in winter, car rental in Norway is the most comfortable means of getting around for the warmth of heating in-car heating.

Driving in Norway
Norwegian roads are among the safest in the world due to extensive training of drivers, low speed limits and strict enforcement of rules. The Norwegian police are strict on all kinds of aggressive driving, such as risky overtaking. The police also control traffic from unmarked cars.
Norway has right hand traffic, as the rest of mainland Europe. Driving is generally easy as traffic is calm, and most drivers are disciplined and law abiding, although moderate speeding is common on highways. However, some city-centres (such as Bergen and Oslo) may be confusing to navigate for the first time visitor. Traffic is generally light except for city centres and a handful of stretches on main roads (notably E18).
Manual transmission is regarded as standard in Norway and is found in most private cars. If you prefer to rent a car with automatic transmission, make sure to order one. Car rental in Norway can be essential for easy access to some of the more rural areas.
