Are there a lot of single travelers?
Most of our travelers are traveling alone, with a friend or two, or as a couple. Depending on the type of tour you will either be paired up in tents with someone of the same gender, or the cabins will be 4-share.
What kind of currency to you use and how much should I bring?
The currency used in Norway is Norwegian Kroner (NOK). It is hard to say how much money you should bring. This depends on how long you are staying in Norway. As for the tour there will not be any expenses unless you are going on the optional activities. ATM's are very common in Norway, and most stores and restaurants accept VISA/Mastercard.
What kind of accommodation are we staying at during the trip?
There is two different types of accommodation. One is in tents where two people share one tent. You will also be provided with comfy pads to ensure that you will get a good night sleep before the next day adventure. The other alternative is cabins/hostels. This is mostly 4-share, and there will always be an option to upgrade this accommodation into private or double rooms. Please check your tour info for specific information of what kind of accommodation this tour provides.
Is it possible to book an extra night of accommodation?
In all of the cities where the tours start we have a partner hostel/hotel where the tour starts/ends. We will help you with the information about how to get in contact with the hostel/hotel. All our travellers get a 10-15% discount at all our partner hostels/hotels by notifying your connection to Nordic Experience when booking.
What is the most appropriate type of luggage to bring?
We strongly recommend bringing a backpack or duffel bag, as suitcases can be cumbersome and difficult to store in the van. Suitcases with wheels may not work well on dirt or cobblestone roads.
What clothing should I pack for one of your adventures?
We always recommend packing as light as possible however the specific requirements for your tour will be sent to you when your booking is confirmed.
How much do I tip?
Tips are not included in the tour price and tipping is entirely at your discretion. A suggestion is NOK 20 per person per day.
