The irresistible forces of nature and time have made their mark on Norway as volcanoes and glaciers continually shape and reshape the land over the course of millennia. The result, as it stands today, is a dramatic, stark, and achingly beautiful landscape which stands in counterpoint to the warm Scandinavian charm and style of its cities.
Flights to Norway
There are over 50 international and regional airports in the country, making it possible to reach even some of the remoter parts of Norway by air. Norwegian Air Shuttle have recently begun offering cheap flights from the US, making it easier for Americans to plan what used to be a once-in-a-lifetime trip.
The biggest and busiest airport by far is Oslo International Airport (OSL). It serves almost 23 million passengers every year, and is a hub for Air Norway, Norwegian Long Haul, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Scandinavian Airlines, Sundt Air, and Wideroe. The single, beautifully designed terminal is a bit of a haven for travelers, with a “quiet room” and a moratorium on announcements outside of the immediate gate areas.
Other major international airports in Norway include Sandefjord (TRF), Moss (RYG), Stavanger (SVG), Begen (BGO), Trondheim (TRD), Tromso (TOS), and Ålesund (AES).
Each of the three other main airports is as large and as busy as the next. These include Trondheim Airport, Stavanger Airport, and Bergen Airport. All three are of good quality, and depending on where you are headed, any one of these could be an excellent choice.
