Transportation in Norway

Norway has a lot of transportation options such as Airways, Highways, Railroads, and Seas.

Airways: International airlines link Oslo with most major European cities. Bergen, Stavanger and Trondheim also have international airports. Norwegian airport departure tax (313.00) is almost always included in the price of the airline ticket. Oslo International Airport (OSL) (Gardermoen) is 47km (30 miles) north of Oslo. It is the largest land-based development project in Norway. The high-speed airport express trains Flytoget leave every 10 minutes to/from Oslo's central station (travel time - 20 minutes). Buses serving the airport include the SL buses and Bussekspress which stop in front of the terminal building and take approximately 45 minutes to Oslo.

Highways: Numerous highways and secondary roads link Norway with Finland and Sweden. A bus and a catamaran service link Kirkenes in northern Norway with Murmansk in Russia. The only international routes are from Sweden or Finland in the far north. Camping trailers up to 2.3m (7.5ft) wide, with number plates, are permitted on holiday visits.

Motorcycles: Motorcycle crash helmets are compulsory for all riders and pillion passengers. One advantage of taking your motorcycle to Norway, abate the exciting winding roads, is the road tolls.  In many cities like Bergen, Oslo, Drammen and Trondheim there is a toll to get into the city; as high as NOK 20,- for cars in Trondheim.  Motorcyclists are exempt from these tolls and may drive through the toll gates for free.  Also, in large cities with special taxi/bus lanes called "kollektivfelt", motorcyclist may use the taxi lanes as well. So, in rush hour, you can avoid allot of the snarled traffic.

Sea: The main passenger ports are Bergen, Kristiansand, Larvik, Oslo and Stavanger. The main sea routes from the UK, operated by Fjord Line and DFDS Seaways respectively, are from Newcastle to Bergen (travel time - 25 hours 30 minutes) and to Kristiansand (travel time - 19 hours).
