What about currency?

Norway’s currency is “kroner”, abbreviated NOK. Norway is generally a cashless society. You can take out cash upon arrival, but all locations accept cards. Make sure your card is ready to use in Norway. Notify your bank. Check the bank card charges for international use. Gratuities are still done in cash (USD preferable if not using kroner).

Some shops do not accept foreign credit cards, although they happily take debit cards. Visa and MasterCard are the most commonly accepted credit cards, with far fewer accepting Amex or Diners. If in doubt, ask before shopping. Prices for items will have VAT or tax already included in the listed price.
