On a shoestring budget. Anons where do I start? Something more nature oriented is preferable.
>>
Before you come here, I suggest you just fucking save up some money first. Dont buy tobacco or alcohol, every foreigner complains that its expensive as hell here. Maybe try coachsurfing.

define "shoestring budget"
It can differ from someone from pakistan or someone from the USA.

In general: Norway has a high cost of living.
Tell us why in particular Norway?

Why would you use pakistan as an example?

I lived abroad in Norway for nearly a year, my recommendation is just save up money. You will be spending a lot. Despite this, it's my favorite country in Europe for whatever reason. Beautiful women, interesting culture, and lovely nature. If you do like nature, I recommend Bergen as a potential place to start. There are numerous mountains on the outskirts of the city center. You can take a trolley to the top on some of them, but I recommend just hiking as much as you can!

Well, you're in luck. The NOK is weak now, so prices are comparable to southern california or Australia.

Shouldn't be a problem desu. Accommodation is pretty expensive. If youre into nature, you can always pitch a tent. You are protected by the law and can pitch it anywhere you want as long as its 150 m from a house

I've lived as a student in Norway for 9 years, and you learn to live cheap. Buy food at the pakistani/asian stores, couch surf/tent in the woods, and go full blown homeless style. I never did any of these things obviously, as the student loans in Norway are good, but anyways.

A beer at a pub is around $12, and that's with the NOK doing poorly. If you're into hiking and nature and you already got all the clothes and equipment you need, you can just take the train and bus just about everywhere. There are literally hundreds of insane experiences in the mountains and fjords - so take your time and find what you think is the most exciting. Walking around in Jotunheimen from cabin to cabin is the Norwegian way of having summer vacation - and cheap with dnt.no cabins that are everywhere and always available. I'm planning on doing this next summer - and I can't wait

Not OP, thx for dnt tip. I'm thinking about running away from hay fever next year. Probably wild camping, fishing and mushroom picking + a trunk full of food

How is weather and mosquitos in June? For some reason the Europe pollen map shows the area of Lomsdal Visten and Borgefjell/Byrkije blank, and that's where I would be heading.
Do You think it's better to stay somewhere next to the coast or camp deeper in land? Is the DNT membership accesible for EU citizens?
>>
>>1299421
Everyone can become a member of DNT.no. It's about $85 for a year long membership. You make a deposit and you get keys to the cabins. It's an amazing deal - and I'm not sure why not everybody is doing it. About the pollen - I'm not sure. But my guess would be that there are far less of both mosquitos and pollen generally in the mountain areas.

There is no such thing. Everything is expansive as fuck.

Where are you from OP?

I've never lived in Norway nor been there for longer period than few days but I live quite close to the Norway and have a lot of friends living there. I'm from Poland, believe me, there are a lot of us there, ask any Norwegian and he will confirm, probably complain as well, but still :)

What I would recommend is to never go there during winter or early spring as the snowing can be immersive there. It can snow for half a meeter per night and keep snowing for another 2 weeks. Apart from that Norway seems really expensive so I would avoid any taxis or hotels/hostels. Try with couchsurfing or even tinder, it shouldn't be a problem to find something.

If you are into nature and hiking there is no better place than Norway. What I usually do whenever I want to go to a country I don't really know much about is to seek for local travel blogers on instagram. It may sound stupid but believe me, it works. The things they are showing, locations, pictures, there is no way you would find it easily by google search.

I'll post some of them below. See if you like it.

Alright, I don't really have time for all 10, but basically you see how it looks, make up your mind and if you were never into instagram before, this may be a proper reason to start :)
>>
And obviously not every of pictures are from Norway, I just wanted you to show how it works with those travel blogers. Whenever they go they can come up with something really good wrth saving. Just find local one.
>>
I'm from the originally from the UK and stuff is about 50% more expensive here than it is back there.

As long as you budget with this in mind it shouldn't be too difficult.

I live in Stavanger and the Pulpit rock is very close which is a great place to enjoy the outdoors, although I believe you have to pay for the boat too go there.
