Driving in Norway

In Norway, you can drive with a valid driving license from any country for up to three months, as long as you are 18 or older. Like the US and most of Europe, Norwegians drive on the right-hand side of the road. There is good infrastructure, with plenty of motorhome parking, camp sites, picnic areas, gas stations, and EV charging stations.
It's easy to rent both camper vans and cars in Norway. It all depends on what vehicle is best suited for your trip. Areyou going camping or staying at a hotel?
