Sorry, but Norway and Cheap does not go together. I am not sure what you ask about, summer camp or camping site, but this is the Norwegian site: www.camping.no

Hi there!!!

Unfortunately Gili_S is right, Norway is not really a cheap country but u can always find something. I recommend you to go to visitnorway.co.uk, there's lot of info over there and u might as well try to participate on the "Norway. Your Way" contest (u can win 10 days in Norway for free).

Take a look at those things and hope you have a greeeeat trip!!! Norway is SO beautiful!!!!

If I can help u with something else, please don't hesitate to ask!!!

Sarah :)

Travel Tips for Oslo

Dont buy food in Oslo

by undergrounder

Food is really expensive in Oslo, so plan your meals at home and buy grocery before you enter Norway. Try find some small stores like, Kiwi and Rema 1000. Eating out is even more expensive. I.e. Big Mac & C:o for $12!!!

island jumping in the Oslo fjord

by Hildeal

I would recomend a trip with the ferry to see the Oslo fjord and the islands lying around there. I would especiallly recommend, our Main Island "called Hovedoya It's also a great bathing and camping place. You can also visit the idyllic Lindyoa Gressholmen and Nakholmen. Taking a roundtrip with the ferry takes around 20 minutes and it's not more ekspensive than taking any other public transportation in Oslo. IT'S FOR THE SAME PRICE. the boats leave harbour called Vippetangen. bus nr 60 will take you there there( it takes five minutes) from jernbanetorget close to the farmacy.

Tips to cut down the costs in Oslo

by marielexoteria

Oslo is an expensive city, no doubt, so here are some tips that might help you cut down the costs while there:

- If you don't mind sleeping in a dorm-like room with strangers, this will decrease your accommodation costs. Another idea would be to bring your own tent and sleeping bag and use one of the many camping sites. Check out Visit Oslo for more information about camping sites.

- Supermarkets like ICA have stations where you make your own salad and pay by the weight, which makes for a cheap and filling lunch that you can eat at any of the parks or by Akershus Fortress. If you have access to a fridge, buying breakfast foods will also cut down the costs, as you can store your bread, ham, cheese and milk in it.

- Try and group several sights that are located close to each other and allow enough time to visit all of them for the price of one tram/subway/bus ticket there and back.

- See if the sights you're planning to visit are included in the Oslo Pass or if this pass will give you any discount. The pass usually pays itself if you visit 3 of the museums that charge an admission fee, and it will include public transportation up to zone 4 (see my separate tip about it).

- One card that we found to give value for the money is the Flexikort, if you're not visiting many sights covered by the Oslo Pass. Several people can use it, and you can take unlimited trips in all bus, ferries (not sightseeing ferries), trams and subways within 1 hour from the time stamp.

- It's cheaper to buy transport tickets before you get on the vehicle of your choice rather than buying it from the driver.

- Check out Visit Oslo for information on free museums and activities.

Get up early-or stay out late

by bpwillet

The great thing about Oslo is that it is lower than the surrounding hills. That means great photo ops-anytime of day or night. The sunsets are great and so are the rises! Driving around town with friends as the sun came up looking for great sunrise spots to see the city! BEAUTIFUL!!
