How to Get to Norway

How to get to Norway by Air

Norway’s main gateway- as far as air travel is concerned- is Oslo’s international airport, which is linked by various airlines to other countries. Most destinations from which you can get direct flights to Oslo lie within Europe, so if you want to fly to Norway from outside the continent, you’ll need to get to a major European airport first. There are smaller international airports at a few other Norwegian cities, including Trondheim, Stavanger and Bergen, but flights to these are fewer.

How to get to Norway by Rail

Most trains coming to Norway arrive in Oslo, although some trains also run to Trondheim and Narvik from Stockholm in Sweden. To Oslo, there are regular trains from Copenhagen (Denmark), Helsingborg (Sweden) and Stockholm. NSB (Norwegian State Railways) operates international services from Oslo to Stockholm, from Oslo via Malmo and Copenhagen to Hamburg and Berlin, between Trondheim and Ostersund, and from Narvik to Stockholm.

How to get to Norway by Road

If you’re coming from either Finland or Sweden (two of the three countries which have land frontiers with Norway), you can arrive by road. International highways and secondary roads link the three nations, and there are regular bus services to Norway, Oslo in particular from both Finland as well as Sweden. Eurolines runs regular coach services from other European countries to Norway.

How to get to Norway by Sea

Norway is approachable by sea from a number of ports across Europe, some of them as far away as the UK. There are regular catamaran services (combined with buses part of the way) from Murmansk (in Russia); and ferries from Sweden, Denmark, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. Fjord Line, Color Line and Stena Line that offer services to/from Norway.
