Samuel Taipale, Visit Norway

Independent & Self Drive

Our independent journeys have been created for those who like to move at their own pace. We combine the transport of your choice be it car hire, private transfers or similar to allow you the freedom of the road. We visit these regions regularly and have a selection of hotels that we think compliment having a stressfree holiday.

When it comes to driving and travelling independently, most people you meet will speak English and be more than happy to assist you where they can.

Let us take care of the mundane tasks, booking accommodation, car hire etc., so that you can concentrate on making your hardest decision of the day; what you would like to see and experience. If you do not see that perfect trip for you, then do not hesitate to contact us and we will custom make one just for you.
