Travelling to Bergen

Bergen Airport Flesland (BGO) is well connected with other Scandinavian cities, European hubs and the Norwegian capital, Oslo. Norwegian provides direct connections to range of domestic and international destinations (including the US), often quite reasonably. Be sure to check the link as the flights do not always show up in standard search engines.

From Flesland, the city can be reached by airport bus (Flybussen), which travels at regular intervals throughout the day (including early/late flight landings), and takes around 30 minutes to reach the centre. There are four main stops in the city: main bus station (Storsenter), Festplassen, Torget and the Radisson Blu Hotel on Bryggen. The airport bus, as well as taxis, leave from directly outside the arrivals hall.
