Oslo is well connected through international airport, railways and roads. Below are some of the common ways to getting there.
Travel by Air
The main airport in Norway is Oslo Airport, with scheduled flights to around 140 destinations abroad. Oslo Airport is where most of the international traffic arrives.
You can travel to and from Oslo Airport (OSL) by bus, train, taxi or car. The airport is located 47 km northeast of Oslo. From Oslo Airport you can reach Oslo city centre in 20 minutes by Flytoget Airport Express Train. Express buses and local trains are also available.
An extensive rail network links Norway to the other Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe, whereas the national trains are served by NSB, the Norwegian State Railways.
There are regular train connections to the capital city of Oslo from Copenhagen several times a week.
Most rail journeys from the continent are overnight, and you will find sleeping compartments on all of them. A variety of discount passes are available for train travel in Europe and Norway. Not all trains offer first-class service, but second-class is of a high standard.
You are most likely to arrive by car from Sweden, but Norway also borders to Russia and Finland.
Major roads to Norway include European route E6 which runs through Malmö, Helsingborg, and Gothenburg in Sweden, before crossing the border at Svinesund in the south-east of Norway.
You can also bring your car from all cities and towns in Norway providing ferry services to international destinations.
