Euros are widely accepted by shops, tour companies and hotels and the current exchange rate is about 152 kroners to the euro. I booked tours through the tourist office totalling 24000 kroners and was told I could pay in euros which I did. When I got the receipt I found I´d been charged the equivalent of 26000 kroners, ie a surcharge of 2000 for paying in euros. I protested and said I could change the money in the bank opposite - but they wouldnt give me the euros back to do that. They cheated me by making a hidden secret charge that no-one else I paid euros to made. I did not expect such treatment from a government office - they must be desperate for money to treat tourists in that way. I am disgusted and warn you not to use their services - deal direct with the tour companies and you wont have this kind of problem. Its good to keep your money in euros and only change the minimum into kroners because the kroner is subject to strict capital controls and you will get a very bad rate for it overseas if you are stuck with them. When I left the country, the exchange office in the airport was closed.
