Use a VPN to get a Norwegian IP address
A VPN service is a service connecting your computer to a server in Norway. Once connected all your traffic will be encrypted on the Internet and all your movement will seem to come from that server in Norway, which again means that you will surf with a Norwegian IP address.

Best VPN services in Norway
We have tried several VPN services with servers in Norway, but unfortunately most of these have very slow connections and servers in Norway. The best of all solutions if you want a Norwegian IP address is StrongVPN, but unfortunately you need a Deluxe Package (15 USD per month), and you need to sign up for a minimum of three months, making it at least a little investment to get this going.
The second best solution which is cheaper is HideMyAss. They have three servers in Norway and they have mostly good speeds. A subscription only cost 11 USD per month and you do not need to sign up for more than a month with this service. They also have servers in about 50 other nations in the world, making this a brilliant service if you want to surf the Internet with an IP address in other nations as well, such as Germany, Spain or Italy.
Let us say you want to try HideMyAss. What to do now?
Visit their website, make a subscription to their service, download their client and connect to a server in Norway. It is as easy as it sounds and it takes a maximum of 10 minutes to arrange with all of this.
Good luck and enjoy surfing the Internet with a Norwegian IP address.
