I know that at least Sixt allows you to rent a car from Finland and drive it in other Nordic countries, including Norway, but you have to let them know about your plan to drive it abroad before you rent. You also have to be at least 21 years old to rent a van type car. They also allow you to just take it one way, but the cost for that is pretty steep (~...

Don't pretend that you're only going for 90 days or less. If you do that, you risk being refused for deception, which could lead to a ban.
