Oslo Gardermoen Airport is situated approximately 47 km north of Oslo, the Norwegian capital. The airport has excellent connections with the rest of the country via modern roads, trains and buses leaving the airport to destinations in Oslo and beyond at regular intervals.
Oslo Airport Buses are divided into several different lines serving various destinations. The Ruter Buses provide a shuttle service for the airport, the airport compound and central Oslo with a few destinations in between. For travel details of times and destinations passengers requiring Ruter Buses should look up the company's website at trafikanten.no, however, the airport information desk in the arrivals hall can also help passengers who do not speak Norwegian.
Buses from Oslo Airport also include the Airport Express Coach (SAS Flybussen), which runs a service between the airport and Oslo city center every 20 minutes every day of the week. These modern buses provide a fast, efficient and safe way of travelling into Oslo. Passengers not speaking Norwegian will be relieved to find detailed information available on prices and times at www.flybussen.co/index.asp?lang=ENG, the official English language site of Airport Express Coaches. The service starts at the Radisson Blu Airport Hotel and goes via the Oslo Bus terminal and a few stops beyond to Furuset. The whole journey takes about 40 minutes.
The Nettbuss service is a line which runs between Oslo Airport, Årnes and Kongsvinger as well as providing a shuttle service between the airport and various hotels around the airport. Information about their services and bus times can be obtained at www.nettbuss.no.

Oslo has a vibrant nightlife with bars, cafes and nightclubs. Downtown Oslo has nightclubs which stay open until 3 am and taking the bus or a taxi after indulging in some dancing, sampling of local fare and drink is a much better option than getting into a car and into trouble with the Norwegian police. The trendy and rather exotic looking club Grønland is regarded as the place to be seen in trendy Oslo.
Oslo Opera, numerous festivals throughout the year, folk dancing shows and sports events are among the favourite attractions in the city. There are 50 museums to explore, art galleries to visit and a stroll in the Vigeland Sculpture Park refreshes the senses. For children there are the TusenFryd amusement park, puppet shows, children's summer activities in the parks and locations throughout the city, the Akershus Castle, the Viking Ship Museum and much, much more. Public transport is excellent in Oslo and tourist attractions for all the family to enjoy can be reached by bus or by tram in most cases.
