Recommended attractions

Public transportation

There is an extensive public transport system covering the greater Oslo area, comprising busses, trams, subways, boats and trains. There is a common ticket system for all. Single tickets are rather expensive. We recommend either one-day passes that gives unlimited access on all transportation for 24 hours, or weekly passes that gives unlimited access for one week. Alternatively, pre-paid cards can be purchased with 8-clips (FlexiKort), where one clip gives unlimited travel within Oslo for one hour.

The airport express is recommended for travel between Oslo and the Airport. A cheaper alternative is a regular train that runs every hour. The regular train takes about 20 minutes longer.

Note that taxis are very expensive in Norway. Taxi to and from the airport is not recommended.
