Travel to Norway

Have you always been dreaming about going to Norway but have not done it yet? Why?

Travel to Norway

Possibly, you think that the country is too far away and it takes quite an effort to get there. This is not true. There are many direct flights to Norway from many cities around the world. And if you happen to live relatively close to this country, you may get there by sea, by train, by bus – or even by your own car!


The main country’s airport – Gardermoen – is situated in Oslo. It accommodates regular flights from 140 cities all over the world. You will find direct flights to Norway from East and West coasts of the USA and some European countries. If you fly from Australia or New Zealand, you will have to make a transfer.

The majority of international flights arrive at Oslo airport. Other international airports are in Bergen, Kristiansand, Moss, Sandefjord, Stavanger, Tromsø and Trondheim. If you need to get to another region, be ready for a transfer. Norway has more than 50 airports, so you can easily travel by plane inside the country, for example to reach such far away regions as the Lofotens, Nordkapp or Svalbard.

The most convenient way to get from Gardermoen to the center of Oslo is by train Flytoget. The ride takes just 20 minutes. Express-buses and regional trains are also an option.


A vast network of rails connects Norway with other Scandinavian countries and Europe. Regular trains shuttle between Oslo and Copenhagen several times per week.

The majority of trains departing from Europe are night trains, with compartments and sleeping places.


Buses to Norway depart from Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Russia. Buses from Gothenburg in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark set off almost hourly. And from Stockholm – even more often.
