Norway pricing guide

There’s no two ways about it, Norway is an expensive country to visit. On the plus side, it can be quite cheap to get to from the UK, but once you are there, hotels, transport, activities, food and drink are all pricey. There are things you can do to try to keep costs manageable (picnic lunches work well, for example), but you do need to be realistic about what to budget.

Price guidelines

As a general guideline, an 12-day summer trip will start from £10,000 for a family of four, excluding your flights. This is based on good mid-range accommodation and includes some activities. If you want to upgrade to more luxurious accommodation, expect prices to start from £12,500.

If you are travelling in the winter and want to enjoy a range of activities, a 6-day trip will usually cost from £7,600 excluding flights. There is however huge variation in cost in the winter, depending on exactly what you want to do, and where you will visit.

You should expect to pay £15-£20pp for an evening meal, not including drinks. Alcohol is expensive; a beer will usually cost around £8 and a bottle of wine upwards of £40.

If it’s polar bears you want, then a two-week holiday for a family of four, that incorporates an 8-day (7-night) Arctic voyage cruise, with the rest of the time spent on Svalbard, Tromso and Oslo, will cost around £19,200 (excluding internal and international flights).

International flights

All prices exclude international flights. There are regular flights to Norway from many UK airports, including regional hubs. Olso, Bergen and Tromsø are all popular start/endpoints. Prices vary accordingly; out of school summer holidays they may be as low as £50pp. During school holidays, prices are likely to start from around £200pp.
