If you have rented a holiday home in which pets are permitted, please remember that it is a lengthy and quite difficult process to obtain all necessary permits for bringing pets into Norway. Therefore, please contact the Norwegian Tourist Board or Embassy well in advance.
If you have booked a holiday home in Norway, you may need to book a ferry crossing. Please remember to order your tickets well in advance. Further information concerning ferry connections, please see VisitNorway.
Many Norwegian holiday homes are located on small islands, but regardless of where a house is located, the easiest way to reach the holiday home will often be to go by the ferry. Consequently it is a good idea to check the various ferry possibilities. On VisitNorway you will find a list of all the ferries in Norway.
In some cities such as Oslo and Bergen a toll fee must be paid when entering/leaving the city. There are also many rather small roads privately administrated in Norway. Also here you will have to pay.
If you wish to be updated on the road and traffic situation, please check on VisitNorway.
