Reasons to get travel insurance for your trip to Noway

Outdoor Adventures

Norway's stunning landscapes, including fjords, mountains, and national parks, invite travelers to engage in outdoor activities like hiking, skiing, and boating. Travel insurance can provide coverage for accidents, injuries, and medical emergencies that may occur during these activities, ensuring you receive proper medical care without financial worries.

Unpredictable Weather and Natural Phenomena

Norway's weather can be unpredictable, even during the summer months. Travel insurance can offer coverage for unexpected weather-related disruptions such as flight cancellations, delays, or changes to outdoor excursions due to adverse weather conditions.

Flight Disruptions

If you plan to explore Norway's remote regions, there's a chance that transportation options might be limited or subject to delays. Travel insurance can cover expenses incurred due to transportation disruptions, ensuring you have the necessary resources to adapt your plans.

Lost Baggage

Travel insurance can provide coverage for lost, stolen, or damaged belongings during your trip to Norway. This is particularly important when traveling with valuable equipment, such as cameras and outdoor gear, helping you replace items if the unexpected happens.

Main Facts About Norway

The currency in Norway is Norwegian krone. You can exchange your money in hotels, banks and airports and there are many ATMs in Norway where you can withdraw cash. Before you travel, make sure to check with your bank in regards of any fees.
Norway has two official languages - Norwegian and Sami but Norwegian is by far the most widely spoken language. However virtually every Norwegian can speak fluent English so you'll be able to get around just fine.
If you're seeking warmth and sunshine, Norway may not be the best destination for you. The hottest months, June, July, and August, typically have an average temperature of around 18.4°C. However, it can get very cold in the winter, with temperatures sometimes dropping to -32.5°C in some areas. The official record for the coldest temperature ever recorded in Norway is an frigid -51.2°C! It's definitely worth keeping in mind if you're planning a trip to Norway during the colder months.
Power Plugs
If you are traveling to Norway from the UK, you will need a plug adapter as Norway uses plug types C and F, which are also used in most of Europe. This is necessary to use your UK devices in Norway. It's always a good idea to check the plug types in the country you are visiting and make sure you have the necessary adapters to use your electronic devices.
Currently 5.37 million live in Norway. There are several reasons why it's relatively low - climate, lack of arable land (only 3% of land area is farmable) and historic mass emigration between 1825 and 1925.
Fun Fact
