Boat Hire In Norway

Post by andy g » Tue Jul 11, 2017 11:14 am

Guys

Need some advice please . Trying to put together a Norway trip for 2018 with club paddlers to some of the lesser grades around Voss and Opdal.

Although everyone would prefer to take their own boat, the land trip via Belgium Germany Denmark, Sweden Norway is really long and presumable quite tedious.

Does anyone know if really modern creek boats can be hired locally, which would open up the possibility of a fly-drive via Bergen, or Oslo, (provided one can hire cars with roof rack capability)?

Speaking of which, has anyone ever tried renting cars with roof racks in Norway? If so, how painful is it?
