- Detailed data and current information about the opening of mountain passes in Norway and other countries can be found at alpenpaesse.de (German).
- If the winter conditions are really bad (extreme cold, snow storms, poor visibility), many routes in Norway are only allowed to drive in convoy. Such a group often consists of at least 10 cars.
- The narrower roads along the west coast are only suitable for caravan vehicles for experienced drivers.
- Put your car aside as far as possible (preferably on the roadside).
- Turn the wheels towards the shoulder.
- Turn on your hazard lights (also make them flash after placing a warning triangle).
- Put on a safety vest and have your passengers put on a vest as well.
- Get out of the car on the side where there is no traffic and let your passengers out on that side as well.
If necessary, place a warning triangle.
- Stand behind the crash barrier or on the verge and wait for the roadside assistance service, with a view of the traffic.
- Never cross the highway, that is dangerous!
- In the mountain areas and the fjord area there are many steep, narrow roads, some with hairpin bends. It can be a challenge to drive here, especially for motorists with a caravan.
- Norway has a good road network that is regularly maintained.
- Due to the increase in bridges and tunnels, through traffic has less to do with ferries.
- The roads are very winding and rarely wide enough for traffic to flow smoothly. A journey can therefore take much longer.
- Alternate places have been created along secondary single carriageways in the mountainous region. They are marked with an M.
- In Norway there are also gravel roads, which can be temporarily difficult to use when the thaw sets in in spring.
