Payment in Norway
The currency in Norway is the Norwegian kroner (NOK).
You can pay for most things in Norway by VISA/Mastercard. Cash is not entirely
a thing of the past, but Norway has come a lot farther than most countries
in eliminating it.
Trams in Oslo
Oslo has trams in the city. Please be aware that trams always have
right of way, even on road crossings without traffic lights.
Please take care around the trams!
If you will travel by tram, we recommend that you buy a "Flexi" card
with 8 clips on it. This is the cheapest way to travel unless you travel
more than three journeys per day. This can be bought from the driver
with cash or from any newsagent/kiosk.
Travelling to Norway in the summer can be an exciting tourist experience.
Check out some of the attractions, and spend a few days extra?
The 23rd of June is the day of Midsummer celebrations known as
St Hans eve, from the ancient pagan celebration of the solstice. At this
time people traditionally light bonfires. In Norway, you can enjoy practically
24 hour sunlight, weather permitting!
A very nice and popular trip is to take the train to Flm and then a
boat through thr fjord to Bergen and back.
