Norway is one of the most accommodating countries in the world when it comes to freedom camping. Wilderness camping is generally allowed in open country. However, you should follow a few rules.
You may stay anywhere in the countryside, forests or mountains for a night, but you must keep at least 150 metres away from the nearest inhabited house or cabin.
If you wish to stay more than 2 nights, you must ask the landowner’s permission.
All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. If your licence is from the UK, it must entitle you to drive a category B vehicle up to 3,500 kg.
Foreign licences are acceptable if they are in English or are accompanied by an accredited English translation. Otherwise, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required.

The summer months are the most popular, as winter in Scandinavia usually means driving in snow and limited daylight.
Driving up to the Arctic Circle in June/July to experience the midnight sun is a popular experience. A trip to northern Norway in September and later offers a chance to see the northern lights (aurora borealis).
Yes, Norway has over 190 toll stations, most of which are now automated. All visitors, regardless of nationality, are required to pay a toll.
Most campers come equipped with a toll tag/pass or are registered with AutoPASS. You will be required to pay the charges for any tolls incurred during your trip.
Many roads require you to take a ferry at some point in order to cross a river or fjord. These are mostly short trips and are usually viewed as an extension of the road. You will be charged a small fee (generally 150-300 NOK) for using the ferry; this is usually billed electronically using the AutoPASS system.
