Module 05:
How do I get around in Norway?

If you have seen Norway on a map, you know that it has a very special shape with long distances between the cities. To make it easy to get around, we have invested in an extensive transport network.

In this module you will learn how to best get around the country by train, bus, car, boat or plane.
