By the light of the midnight sun
Nice-Oslo by plane, then Norway by boat! For many people, a Nice-Oslo direct flight is simply the prelude to a cruise (or a road trip) to explore the country of fjords and trolls. They’re missing out! As fabulous as the kingdom of Harald V is, its capital itself is well worth discovering, and not just for a few hours in passing! Human-friendly, natural, charming, avant-garde and refined, it offers its guests a glorious city break, which in itself justifies buying a Nice-Oslo plane ticket.

The formalities for travelling to Oslo
- Entry requirements: although Norway is not a member of the European Union, it is part of the Schengen Area. European citizens need nothing more than a valid passport or identity card to enter the country.
- Currencies: the Norwegians use the krone. One Norwegian krone is worth around ten euro cents. Remember: there are Interchange branches in both of the airport’s terminals, where you can find out the exchange rate and buy your kroner.
Your Nice-Oslo direct flight
You can’t go wrong: both SAS and Norwegian fly to Oslo from Terminal 1 of Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.
Whichever airline you choose, you should arrive at the airport at least an hour before your flight takes off, if you already have your boarding pass and are travelling with cabin baggage only. Arrive an hour and a quarter before your flight if you need to check in or put luggage in the hold.

Arriving in Oslo
Your Nice-Oslo flight will land at Oslo Airport, Gardermoen. This is the Norwegian capital’s main airport. It is located around 50 kilometres north of the city. To get to the centre, you have several options:
- The bus: SAS Flybussen’s Airport Express Coach goes to the centre of Oslo every 20 minutes. The journey takes 45 minutes, with three different stops in the city.
- The train: the station is under the Arrivals terminal. There are two options: Vy (formerly NSB) and Flytoget. Vy trains make several stops on the way to Oslo Central Station. Trains depart every 20 minutes and the journey takes around 25 minutes. Flytoget trains are direct (a 19-minute journey) and more frequent (one departure every 10 minutes), but twice the price.
- A taxi: the journey takes around 40 minutes. Fixed fares. To find out the fares and compare prices between companies, go to the taxi desk in the Arrivals terminal.
- A hire car: there are five major companies at the airport, and this is a useful option if you plan on leaving Oslo to explore more of Norway.
What to do in
Oslo is not a renowned tourist destination like other Scandinavian capitals such as Stockholm and Copenhagen. This is undoubtedly because many travellers are put off by the particularly high cost of living. However, there are many good value options in the Norwegian capital, that still allow you to enjoy its charms without breaking the bank. So forget your preconceptions, and go looking for bargains and free tours online, to help you explore the city in search of design, discovery, and the only coffee that can compete with an Italian espresso.
