How to reach

By plane

Bergen Airport Flesland is located 18 kilometers south of Bergen. The airport bus departs every 15 - 20 minutes and takes about 30 minutes to the Bergen city center. When arriving to Bergen, there is an Airport bus waiting just outside the terminal for all scheduled flights. You can buy your ticket online in advance. The ticket is valid on all departures on the selected date.

If you need a taxi, you will find a taxi rank located just outside the terminal exit at the airport.

By train

Bergensbanen, operated by NSB, takes you on a journey through picturesque mountain scenery and has many destinations worth seeing along the approximately 50 mil long stretch. There are four daily departures from Bergen and Oslo, and the entire trip from Oslo takes about seven hours. The Bergen Railway Station is located right in the heart of Bergen city, just a short walk from the famous Bryggen, the Fish Market and the beautiful and lively city center of Bergen.
