Driving in Kjevik

A car rental is a great way to explore the rugged coastline, picturesque villages and hidden gems of the region, but there are things you should know before getting behind the wheel on your Kjevik excursion. Before setting off, familiarise yourself with the local driving rules and regulations. In Norway, you drive on the right-hand side of the road, and the speed limits are typically 50 km/h in urban areas, 80 km/h on rural roads and 110 km/h on motorways.

Kjevik and its surrounding area feature a mix of narrow country roads and larger highways. When driving in the town, be aware of pedestrians and cyclists, particularly in residential areas and near schools. Parking in Kjevik is generally straightforward, with various on-street parking spaces and public car parks available. That being said, it’s worth remembering that Kjevic is a small town, and there won’t be as many car parks as you would expect in a larger town or city.

During the winter months, driving conditions in Kjevik and the surrounding region can be challenging due to snow and ice. Ensure your car is equipped with winter tyres, which are mandatory in Norway during the winter season. Additionally, it's advisable to carry a snow brush and ice scraper in your car.

If you plan to explore the nearby archipelago, you should know that some islands are only accessible by ferry. Check ferry schedules in advance and ensure you arrive early, as space on the ferries may be limited during peak travel seasons.

Roads in rural areas around Kjevik are not always well-lit, so exercise caution when driving at night. Additionally, be prepared for the possibility of encountering wildlife, such as deer or elk, on country roads. Drive at a safe speed and remain vigilant, especially during dawn and dusk when animals are most active.

For larger groups or families, a van hire in Kjevik is the ideal choice, providing extra space for luggage and passengers. Whether you're travelling for business or leisure, you'll find car rental options in Kjevik to suit your needs.
