Widerøe, a Norwegian airline, is offering an Explore Norway Ticket, which provides unlimited travel around Norway for two weeks, between 1 July and 31 August. The airline has divided the country up into three zones, and for different prices, you can travel in one zone (3460 NOK/435 USD), two zones (4070 NOK/512 USD), or across the whole country (4680 NOK/589 USD).

Wondering which would work best for checking off your Norwegian bucket list items? The three zones are: “Zone Southern Norway”, which cover all destinations south of and to/from Trondheim; “Zone Nordland” which includes Trondheim, Nord-Trøndelag, Nordland and to/from Tromsø; and “Zone Finnmark” covers the whole Finnmark and includes Sørkjosen and Tromsø in Troms.

If you’re ready to explore the whole country, the airline flies to 42 destinations in total. Once you’ve got the pass, you can fly as much as you like, but not more than four times between the same pair of cities. After your first flight, you can change your itinerary, and even book up to two hours before a flight, however there may be limited availability on popular routes. If you’re travelling in the Southern Norway zone, an international connecting flight from Aberdeen, Billund, Copenhagen or Gothenburg is included, as well as flights from Hamburg, London and Munich starting in mid-August.

The pass could be the key for travellers who want to explore the country as much as possible. The airline even notes where to fly to get to some top attractions: Stavanger to get to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), Andenes for a whale safari, Ålesund for Geirangerfjord and Trollstigen, or Mo i Rana to get to the Arctic Circle.
