Travel to and from Norway
Most major European cities have airline connections with Oslo and Bergen. Stavanger and Trondheim also have international airports. International flights to Norway from other continents normally go via Copenhagen.
There are ferry links from Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain, Iceland and the Faroe Islands to the ports of Bergen, Kristiansand, Larvik and Stavanger.
Visas: Scandinavian citizens enter Norway freely without a passport. Citizens of USA, Canada, Ireland, UK, Australia and New Zealand do not require a visa for stays of less than three months. The same is true for EU countries, most of Latin America and most Commonwealth countries
Equipment to bring when fishing Norwegian rivers
For salmon fly fishing, double handed rods (13’ – 16’) are the norm on large and medium rivers.
Single handed rods (9’ – 11’) are suitable for smaller rivers and for fishing for other game fish in all types of rivers and lakes.
Chest waders are recommended for all river fishing and a life jacket should always be worn.
At least three matching fly lines will be needed: floating, intermediate and sinking.
Different tip lines offer the greatest flexibility and opportunity for strikes.
A good and varied selection of flies and tubes are needed. Small, medium and large to suit different water levels and conditions.
