By train

The Norwegian State Railways (NSB) operates most passenger train services in Norway and has a railway network stretching from Kristiansand in the south to Bodø above the Arctic Circle.

The Nordlandsbanen railway line takes you deep inside the polar regions, where the northern lights dance across the sky in the winter nights.

By road

The E6, the main north-south road through Norway, holds a good standard and can generally be driven all year round. From Majavatn at the border of Trøndelag county it runs 1,670 kilometres to Kirkenes via Fauske, Narvik, Bardufoss, Alta, Lakselv, and Tana bridge. There is one ferry crossing on this route.

A more scenic alternative is The National Tourist Routes. They are an attraction in themselves, but take longer to drive because of their many ferry crossings.

Occasionally, the E6 mountain passes are closed due to bad weather. They normally open after few hours. Make sure to check the weather forecast before you start driving.
