Norway Finally Affordable Enough to Be Visited on a Budget as National Currency Scores Historical Low


If traveling to Norway has been on one’s list but could never really afford it, now is the perfect time to book a flight and organise an itinerary to one of Europe’s most breathtaking countries, as the Norwegian Cruna dropps significantly.

According to Visit Norway, NOK has hit one of the biggest lows against the euro in 2023, making the country more affordable to visit by tourists from many countries.

The exchange of NOK 100 on July 21, is around €10.04 and $12.91, offering countries that have these currencies a possibility to take advantage of low rates. In addition, NOK 100 is equal to DKK 149.86 and SEK 96.73.

This means that people have to pay less than they did in the previous years for services in Norway. Currently, an average hotel room for two people and breakfast included, costs around €115, while accommodation and food at more popular places, especially during peak season can be higher.

Despite being perceived as a country with high costs, Norway has recently become more affordable for travellers, especially for American travellers who get 36 per cent more value for dollars spent compared to five years ago.

In addition, Norway has become more affordable for Scandinavian as well as British travellers as well as EU visitors.

Some of the reasons why prices have dropped in Norway are related to the soaring inflation, higher energy prices and financial issues, due to the war in Ukraine and other challenges that concern all countries.

The annual Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) survey has revealed that Oslo is no longer on the top 20 list of the most expensive places in the world, further showcasing that it has become more affordable for people to visit the Norwegian capital.

Some of the best tips for people that plan to travel Norway on a budget, include visiting national parks and famous scenic routes which are free of charge and the main reason why visiting Norway is worth it.

In addition, trying local food is highly recommended for visitors, not only for budgeting reasons but also since the country has some delicious national dishes.

Ticket transportation, especially buying those early, and for longer periods such as daily, weekly or monthly travel passes that can allow visitors to travel more for less money.

And, instead of spending for a hotel accommodation, visitors can rent apartments or cosy cabins, which enables them to cook meals while staying in the country and even more comfort and privacy.
