Hiring a car in Norway

Compare rates and find the best price on car hire in Norway
Norway is a beautiful Scandinavian country simply waiting to be explored. If you thought Norway was too far north to be penetrable, think again - touring this country by car opens you up to breathtaking views and experiences all the way up to the Arctic circle and beyond.

Norway's fjords - dramatic patches of ocean winding through glacier-made natural cliffs - are some of its most iconic images. The country's people are counted among some of the most friendly and laid-back in the world, and the country enjoys a notoriously high standard of living. To top it all off, bustling cities like Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen and Stavanger offer distinctive historical and urban appeal. The best way to see it all? By car. If the opportunity arises don't miss the Atlantic Road, only 8kms long between Kristiansund and Molde, this stretch of road is designated a national tourist route because of the stunning architecture of the road and the bridges, and the incredible coastline it passes through.
