Norwagon Norwagon gives people the freedom to explore the more remote regions of Norway. Part vehicle, part experience, Norwagon gets the adventurous to far-flung spots, and removes the cost of a hotel or an expensive camper. It’s wheels to get you out there by day; then by night, the van converts into a little home away from home. All Norwagons are fitted with a double bed, cooking facilities and even a kitchen sink. And don’t think this is a traditional caravan either; the vans are painted up and designed for the budget traveler with everything you need, nothing you don’t. And the price reflects this. Travelers used to backpacking understand and embrace the ‘value for money’ approach.

Norwagon was launched in March 2014 and has already seen a lot of bookings for the summer of 2014. The Norwagon team has plans for expanding south into Bergen and Oslo.
