[Updated for 2024] A must-have guide for travelers to Norway! A complete guide to recommended SIM cards!


Planning a trip to Norway? Hey ! Are you getting ready for your trip to Norway? Norway attracts many visitors with its diverse charms, including natural beauty such as the fjords and the Northern Lights, and the capital city of Oslo, where sophisticated culture harmonizes with nature. A smartphone is essential to enjoy traveling abroad, whether it's for gathering local information, updating social media , or using a translation function when you can't speak the language. Here we will introduce you to reliable communication methods in Norway. Please make use of this information, including how to choose a SIM card and how to use it.


1. Communication environment and SIM card selection points

Check communication quality and coverage

Norway has a very high internet penetration rate and fast connection speeds, so you can use the internet comfortably, just like in Japan. Since there is little geographical bias, high-quality connections are possible in most areas. If you want a more comfortable environment, a local SIM card with stable communication is the best choice.


Select a data plan

4G connections are common in Norway, but 5G is becoming available in more and more urban areas. Depending on your travel style, choose a SIM card that takes into account the amount of data and communication speed you need. If you watch a lot of videos or download a lot of data, a large data plan is a good choice.


Choose your rate plan

Choose the plan that best suits you based on the length of your stay and the amount of data you plan to use. For short-term stays, a daily plan is convenient, but for long-term stays or those with large data usage, we recommend a monthly plan.



2. Tips for choosing a SIM card in Norway

Checking SIM card type and compatibility

When visiting Norway it is important to choose the right SIM card for your device. In addition to traditional physical SIM cards (standard SIM , micro SIM and nano SIM ), most modern devices also offer eSIM . It is important to check which SIM card type your smartphone supports before you travel.

Where to buy a SIM card

SIM cards are available in Norway at major international airports, such as Oslo Airport Gardermoen and Bergen Airport.

■VOYAGEESIM FOR Europe review

I used it in Finland, Italy, Spain and the UK, and it was comfortable and smooth in every country
. "-May 14, 2024-


"I was able to use it almost the same as I would in my own country.
I was able to do everything on my iPhone without physically changing the SIM card, and I was able to use it as usual even while traveling with almost no problems. Sometimes I had a nostalgic 3G signal, but that was an issue with the area I was traveling in, so I cleared it up by changing locations and turning the power off and on. It was my first time using it, but I'm glad I did. I'll use it again next time. If I'm in a place with a good wifi environment, I didn't use as much data as I expected, so I think I could use a little less data next time. " - May 13, 2024 -


"It saved me.
I bought it with the intention of using it in Finland, Portugal, and London, including transit points. I had trouble connecting at first, but after tweaking the settings, it finally connected. I would like to use it again. " - May 11, 2024 -
