The duty-free ration
People talk much about the high Norwegian price level, but it is approaching, gradually, the same level as the Danish. Only cigarettes, beer, wine and strong drink taxed heavily, but since Norway is outside the EU, you can buy duty-free items in the DutyFree shop at Aalborg Airport and save money.
