Driving through Norway
Norway is often called the Land of the Midnight Sun. That is because, in many areas of the country, the sun does not set completely for nearly two months every year. However, tourists who choose to rent a car in Norway should make sure to always keep their light on. The terrain of the country tends to be very mountainous, hilly and rugged. Combined that with cold weather and you will get slippery roads and a higher chance of a traffic accident. The good news is that most of the motorways in the country are free of major traffic which will enable you to drive around the country at your own pace and to easily pull over to take in the countless breath-taking views you will see along your trip. When researching car rentals in Norway, it is a good idea to get a GPS-equipped vehicle. That is because the Land of the Midnight Sun is one of the longest countries in Europe. As a result, distances often seem smaller than they are in reality. For example, it can take you more than a day to get from a town set in south Norway to a place set in the northern part of the country.
