Type of luggage
When travelling by motorhome in Norway, it is important to save as much space as possible.
In order not to be overwhelmed, especially if you are picking up and dropping off your vehicle in two different cities, remember to bring soft bags or even backpacks, which can easily be stored in a corner of the motorhome.
If your city of departure and your city of arrival are the same, you can always leave your empty suitcases in a locker at the rental centre.
A day bag can be very handy for storing your valuables, or even for your excursions and visits.
Passport: biometric or electronic. For more information concerning visas or other information, please consult the website of the embassy of your country.

Norway is a country with a temperate climate.
In winter, it is important to cover up because the temperatures are very low, especially in the hinterland, which is the coldest place.
In spring, you may prefer mid-season clothes, a few sweaters and raincoats.
It is in summer that the weather is the most unstable. It can be nice and warm and then start to rain. Temperatures drop and the wind picks up. It is advisable to take summer clothes and always have a raincoat and a sweater on hand.
