For a holiday you will not soon forget, head to the land of the Vikings. Flights to Norway are available, even for those on a budget. Ebookers can help you find the best prices on everything for your travel, allowing you to plan your holiday easily. From the breathtaking fjords and northern lights to the rich history, Norway will provide you with a destination to remember.
When flying to Norway, your international flight will likely bring you to Oslo Airport in the capital city. This airport served over 21 million passengers in 2011 and currently operates flights for more than 35 carriers. The airport is located about 29 miles outside of the city, and it connects to more than 100 international destinations.
There are multiple options for public transportation from the airport into the city. An express train leaves for Oslo Central Station six times an hour, and express buses to Oslo are also available. Public buses and trams provide transport from the airport, as well as throughout the city. Taxis can be expensive, but they are safe. Renting a car is an option that will allow you to have more control over your daily itinerary, but keep in mind that gasoline is costly in Norway.
Because the country runs so far north to south, there are many different climates available for travellers to enjoy. The northern part of the country lies within the Arctic Circle, where the sun does not set below the horizon during the summer months. Likewise, during the winter the sun does not appear. This northern part of the country experiences subarctic and arctic tundra climates. The remainder of the country, contrary to popular belief, experiences four distinct seasons.
Norway offers a rich history to its visitors along with much to do. Winter sports, such as skiing, are very popular, because the country's landscape provides excellent conditions for both the Alpine and cross-country varieties. If you are in Norway, you should not miss the chance to see the northern lights or the midnight sun, both of which can be viewed from the northern part of the country, above the Arctic Circle. If you are looking for an adventure in history, Stavanger is your destination. Medieval churches, meeting sites of Viking kings and Iron Age houses are all available to see.
Norway can open the doors to new cultural, historical and geographical experiences for any traveller. Using ebookers allows you to make all of your budget travel plans easily and efficiently. Book your flights to Norway today and enjoy this breathtaking country and all its charm on your next holiday.
