Car Hire and driving in Norway

Hi there,

Has anyone hired cars in Norway and how did they find driving around? We have very limited time and feel this would be the cheapest and easiest way for us to see what we want to see.

Honestly though I have never hired cars in other countries and I am wandering what peoples experiences were.

We are hoping to travel to some fjords.

We could be a lot more helpful if you would post the information suggested in tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g190455-i550-k54…

For example does 2 1/2 days mean 2, 3 or 4 nights? Times of arrival & departure, dates, where you are from are all relevant, then we could check how busy Flåm is likely to be etc.

Basically the main tourist fjords have a certain degree of similarity in striking scenery. In your time frame it might be best to keep it simple with good public transport connections, i.e. NiN. Driving up to Geiranger would again cost you a couple of days mostly on long, and for Norwegians, not particularly interesting streches of road.

Use Google Maps to check driving times and distances, but allow 1 minute per km rather than Google times. Geiranger is way too far to do with the time you have available.
