Norway is interesting country for travel. With hidden corners of pure nature hidden from the eyes of tourists. There is not much to do in the cities of Norway. To explore the whole country, I recommend renting a car. A rental car will make you independent of public transport. And allow you to see the best places in the country at your own pace.
It is comfortable to see the sights of Norway with a rented car. I advise you to rent a car in advance on the Rental cars website. In order to rent a car at a better price. And choose a car of the desired class.
