GETTING TO BERGEN
The easiest means to get to Bergen is by plane, flying into Bergen Flesland Airport directly from international or national airports.
Participants can also land first at other national airports including Oslo and Stavanger and make their own way to Bergen. There are regular routes between cities in Norway for train, bus or boat. Alternatively, participants may choose to hire a car. All airports offer a car hire service enabling delegates to leave their car at Bergen Flesland Airport following their journey.
Otherwise, participants can still enjoy the views travelling from other national airports/city centres to Bergen via public transport. The most convenient means of travel are as follows:
The NSB (Norwegian Rail Network) operates a regular service four times daily between central Oslo to Bergen city centre. The journey takes 6.5-8 hours from central Oslo. The train passes through picturesque mountain and fjord areas (and covers half of the area of the famous Norway in a Nutshell tour). The train journey arrives in central Bergen just a short distance away from hotels where participants will be staying.
Kystbussen Stavanger-Bergen operates an hourly service from city centre to city centre, taking around 5 hours. The tickets can be purchased onboard the bus or online.
GETTING FROM THE AIRPORT TO THE CITY CENTRE
Bergen Flesland Airport is situated around 20 km South-West of the city. The easiest way to get to the city centre is by taking the airport bus or taxi.
SAS Flybussen (the airport bus) travels between the airport and the city centre every 15 minutes, with the amount of time depending on the time of day. The fare for a one way ticket is 100 NOK payable on the bus. You can pay with cash (Norwegian currency only) or credit card (Visa and Mastercard).
Taxies are readily available from the airport to Bergen city centre. Taxi drivers accept cash and various credit cards.
The official currency in Norway is NOK (Norwegian Kroner). The krone is divided into coins of 1 NOK, 5 NOK, 10 NOK and 20 NOK. Bills are issued in denominations of 50 NOK, 100 NOK, 200 NOK, 500 NOK and 1000 NOK.
Norway is one hour ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT+1).
