Money-Saving Travel: Buses in Norway

Bus travel is usually a lot cheaper than travelling by plane or train. It allows you to sit comfortably and watch the luring landscapes through the window. 

Bridge, Norway

Express buses are usually an underestimated way of travelling in Norway, which is a pity because they offer a wide network of routes, for example in Fjord Norway. They link all the major cities, airports and ferry terminals. Many of the buses offer wireless Internet connection and air-conditioning. 

If you are travelling in a large group, book your ticket well in advance. Usually there is no problem bringing bikes and skis with you, as long as you pay for their transportation. 

There are several bus companies that offer inter-city bus travel in most parts of Norway. The largest ones are Nor-way Bussekspressen and Nettbuss
