Norway, with its magnificent nature and diverse landscapes, is a dream destination for drone enthusiasts and adventurous travelers. Drone travel has become an increasingly popular way to explore this beautiful country, and it’s not hard to understand why. From the dramatic west coast to the majestic mountains in the north, Norway has something unique to offer for drone photographers and travelers seeking a different and spectacular experience.

Three important guidelines before flying a drone in Norway:

Before taking off with your drone in Norway, it’s important to be aware that all drones weighing over 250 grams must be registered with the Norwegian Civil Aviation Authority before they can be legally flown. Registration is a simple process that helps maintain airspace safety and provides authorities with information about drone use in the country. Additionally, we always recommend downloading the drone app, Ninox from Avinor, and registering all flights regardless of where and when you fly. By using Safetofly, you can easily get a user-friendly overview that also shows where there are restrictions on photography and where there may be protected areas with drone usage restrictions. In addition, see the pages of the National Security Authorities.

1. Geirangerfjorden and Nærøyfjorden: Idyllic Geiranger and Nærøyfjorden on the west coast have inspired many photographers for generations, but remember that when bringing your drone here, there may be restrictions, including maintaining a safe distance from crowds and wildlife, and avoiding flying too close to public buildings and infrastructure.

2. Lofoten: Enchanting islands in the north: Lofoten offers a spectacular and diverse nature with majestic mountains, dramatic coastlines, and idyllic fishing villages, providing a unique opportunity to capture fantastic aerial images and videos with your drone.
