Where to stay in Norway?

Like in any other country there are lots and lots of hotels in the larger cities like Bergen, Stavanger, Ålesund and so on. In the mountain areas there are mountain huts in areas like Jotunheimen or Rondane National parks. There are also campings and camping huts for rent. Besides that there are a lot of oopportunities for freecamping following from the freedom to roam. 


Following from the freedom to roam you have the right to walk, cycle, ride, ski and camp on any land with the exception of private gardens, near a dwelling house or land under cultivation. 


This freedom to roam means that you are allowed to freecamp for the maximum of two nights. Y If you are unsure of how close to camp a residence - ask the landowner before! 

 

Of course you shall bring all your rubbish with you (including toilet paper).
