the city’s main airport is called Gardemoen. You’ll find that both by international and domestic carriers including Norwegian, SAS, Air France, British Airways and Widerøe fly here. The airport has one terminal building, overpriced souvenirs and a beautiful new building awaiting you.
Getting to the city:
Gardemoen airport is well connected to the city center with a high speed train (the smooth and
efficient Flytoget which gets you to Oslo city center in 20mins for around 180kr (around 18.5 euros)
For a cheaper option, you can hop onboard the standard Vy (formerly NSB) intercity and
local train services which stop at Gardermoen (adult/child 101/51kr) and take 23 minutes, up
to three an hour).
A handful of budget carriers, including Ryanair, Wizz Air and Norwegian, operate flights to
some destinations from Torp International Airport (www.trop.no) in Sandefjord, which is
around 123km southwest of Oslo.
Getting to the city:
The Torp-Expressen bus runs from Torp airport to the Galleri Oslo bus terminal in about 95
minutes. Buses leave Oslo around 3½ hours before the check-in closes and typically leave
Torp around 35 minutes after a flight arrives. It’s important to note that they will wait if a
plane is late arriving. Free wisdom for nervous travelers.
Are you coming to us by train? We’re impressed.
NSB (www.nsb.no) trains run roughly every hour between Oslo S and Torp station
(adult/child 281/141kr). They take 1½ hours. A shuttle bus meets the trains and takes
passengers to the airport, and yes, the shuttle fee is included in the price of the train ticket.
All trains arrive and depart from Oslo S in the city center so you’ve arrived as soon as you
disembark. Frequent train services run around the Oslofjord (e.g Drammen, Skien, Moss, Fredrikstad and Halden). Check updated timetables on Vy (formely NSB) before traveling.
Bus eh? Superb!
Long-distance buses (domestic and international) arrive and depart from the Galleri Oslo Bus
Terminal. The train and bus stations are linked via a distinctive overhead walkway for easy
connections (seriously, you can’t miss it).
Nor-Way Bussekspress Operates a bunch of intercity bus services to/from Oslo, mostly in
the south. You can access tickets and timetables online.
