Drone Laws In Norway: The Rules, Restrictions, Fines

Drone Laws In Norway: The Rules, Restrictions, Fines

So can tourists fly in Norway? The quick answer seems to be yes! But there are important nuances and there are many of them! In this video, we will work with you on how to safely and legally use a drone in Norway.

We will also talk about the registration of pilots, examinations, rules, insurance, and prohibitions! And of course, we will not skip huge fines and even possible imprisonment!

We tried to tell it easily and understandably, even to those who are not yet a drone pilot or are far from the topic. Or maybe someone just wants to see beautiful flights over Norway! They are in this video 🙂

And of course, we hope this video will be useful, we tried very, very hard !!!

  3. Silver C on June 3, 2022 at 6:55 pm

    Sehr gutes Video. 🙂
    Eine Frage hätte ich noch,
    Meine Drohne ist Haftpflichtversichert.
    Ich bin bei der der Deutschen LBA registriert (wo man auch den Schein macht.)
    Habe die Standartlizens A1/A3.
    Muss ich mich oder meine Drohne jetzt noch auf der Norwegischen Seite registrieren?

  7. Chingshiuan Ong on June 3, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Hi, may I ask i have a dji mini 2 (249gram) so I just have to register and buy insurance? Do I have to pass the exam for A1/A3?

  8. Gilbert on June 3, 2022 at 7:08 pm

    Any recommendation where to get insurance ? What are the prices ?

  9. Lukáš Linka on June 3, 2022 at 7:13 pm

    Hello, nice video an thank you for it and can I ask you some questions?
    – How could anyone prove you that you are above 120 metres?
    – How often do people get caught? I have studied your flight maps in norway and if I got it right, there should be no flying on trolltunga and trollstigen, however there are plenty of videos from this destination. I cant imagine there is a police officer on Trolltunga because it is like 10 hours trail?
    – Does DJI warns you that you are in restricted area in norway? I know that DJI uses some old data that are not often so accurate and it could get you in trouble
    – Do people rather report that you use drone or is police everywhere? Because when I was in Sweden I saw first police after 14 days, because of low density…

    Thank you!

    Hi, I can’t understand the legend in the Norwegian maps, I wanted to know if it was possible to fly with the drone in the areas of Flåm, gudvangen, fossen bratte, Vøringsfoss. A thousand thanks.

  12. john rebollos on June 3, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    Thank you for the awesome video. May I know what name of the insurance you get? thank you!

  13. Post & Beam on June 3, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Great Video! I am going to Norway from the USA with my family this summer and I want to take my Mavic Air 2 to get a few arial shots of our vacation. The registration and A1 license seems clear enough. But finding insurance is very difficult especially as an English speaker. I checked out UAS Norway website but it is kinda hard to navigate and I can’t find any insurance link. Any insurance suggestions for my Mavic Air 2 for the few weeks we will be there? Thanks!

  14. JDAdventure on June 3, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Thank you! Awesome video! You made it much easier for me to find out what I need to do before I start flying!

  15. Drusilla's Voyage on June 3, 2022 at 7:28 pm

    Thank you so much for the information! 😊

  16. NHT - Norway Hikes & Trails on June 3, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Nice tips there 👍 hoping to get a drone one day 🙂

  17. TeohEH on June 3, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    Awesome video!
    I’m from Malaysia and going to Norway next month 🙂
    Do I need to get the drone insurance in Norway? or from my own country yea? :/

    You guys just got new followers. We are a family from North Macedonia and planing our long caravanning trip starting spring 2022. It will be a long road trip but Scandinavia has been on our mind for far too long and now it is time to visit it.

    Since we are traveling with a toddler, we are planning as much as we can ahead and your channel is helping us for Norway a lot. Thanks for sharing this content and who knows, maybe we will meet up this summer 😊.

    In near future we might send some questing at you and hopefully you will answer them if time is on your side.

    Have safe travels and Happy holidays!

    Dado, Edit & Mark

    How about U.K. register pilot and drone ?

  20. Norway virtual tour on June 3, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    Hi, thanks for sharing!
    I wonder if there are any rules for walking around the cities to make some videos public?
    Two days ago I went to town so I walked about 40 minutes so I got closer to town so I passed the police station and then suddenly the police car came back to their garage, while I was already walking past them, but they stopped me and they called me so I had to turn back to them, they asked what I was doing around the building! Of course, I said that I do my hobby, filming around in public, nothing special. and I was actually on my way to another place, I just walked past the building that everyone else can walk, there were no signs so I could see that it is not allowed to film nearby.
    it was very uncomfortable to be stopped to get a warning that if they see me nearby they will report me.
    I feel it was unnecessary to do that to me. google map shows the building much better than my "one side" video of the building, and I did not enter the building either, I just walked by. not even tried to stop there either. so I wonder why! I was in public! like everyone else!
    Now I wonder if I should continue my hobby or not be allowed to be in Norway.

    Very informative, thanks a lot! Did you ever try to get a permit for a national park in off-season? I usually travel Norway in off-season where there are almost no people in the mountains. I would like to take some drone shots and I hope that there may be the possibility of an exception for that time of year. Any thoughts?

    BTW: You definitely gained a new subscriber!
