Hello folks,

Can anyone with any relatively recent experience of travelling around the Norway (particularly the fjords between Stravanger and Trondheim) advise if the ferries are "turn up and ride" kinda ferries, or if booking is recommended ??

Many thanks in advance.

For motorcycles is always a space.
I'm going to Norway in July and i just will check if that's also the case for the ferry from Hirsthals to Kristiansand but the rest i won't.

Hello All,

Can I ask which websites etc. people use for finding accommodation, and which might be best to use for Norway, apart from the obvious Airbnb ?

Many thanks in advance.

On my trips i useally use booking.com for "luxury" accomodation and maps.me or iOverlander (integrated in the Garmin XT) for campsites and wildcamp spots.

Plus Norway has many log cabins that are cheap to use. Also a great way to meet fellow travellers.
They can be basic but some are really nice and either way are dry :-)
