Norway is closer to the UK than people might think - only two hours by air, and with numerous flight departures every day, it couldn't be easier to get there. Or if you have the time, make the journey part of your holiday and travel by ferry, train or car.

In fact, there are more than 50 airports in Norway serviced through regular routes, making even remote places such as the Lofoten Islands, the North Cape and Spitsbergen (Svalbard) easily accessible by plane.
However, you must be prepared to maybe change planes once in order to reach your final destination in Norway.
