Positioned amidst Norway's dramatic fjords, Sogndal Airport is a starting point for adventures in one of the most picturesque parts of Scandinavia. By hiring a car from Sogndal Airport, you unlock the limitless wonders of the fjords and the surrounding landscapes.
Exiting Sogndal Airport:
Sogndal Airport, Haukåsen, is situated about 20 minutes from Sogndal town center. Once you exit the airport, Route 55, a major thoroughfare, offers direct access to Sogndal and the broader region.
While fuel stations in the vicinity are not numerous due to the area's scenic, remote nature, there are a couple of stations in Sogndal town. Always ensure you have a full tank before embarking on long journeys through the fjords.
Norway has a number of toll roads, bridges, and tunnels. The country uses an electronic system called 'AutoPASS'. If your rental car doesn't have an AutoPASS chip, make sure to clarify toll payment methods with the car hire agency.
The roads in this region, while scenic, can be narrow and winding. They are generally in good condition, but be prepared for sudden changes in weather which can affect driving conditions, especially in winter.
The traffic around Sogndal is usually light. However, be cautious during peak tourist seasons and always be on the lookout for tunnels, a frequent feature in Norway's mountainous terrain.
Norway is a pioneer in promoting electric vehicles. If you opt for an EV, you will find several charging stations, even in the less urbanized regions such as Sogndal.
Weather and Car Choice:
Considering Norway's winter conditions, if you're visiting during the colder months, a car equipped with winter tires and possibly 4x4 capabilities is advisable. During the summer, any standard car would suffice.
The allure of the fjords attracts tourists from across the globe. To ensure you get the car of your choice and at the best price, it's crucial to book your rental in advance.
