Norway is well linked to other European countries by air. There are also regular bus and rail services to Norway from neighbouring Sweden and Finland (from where there are connections further afield to Europe), with less regular (and more complicated) services to/from Russia. Regular car and passenger ferries also connect southern Norwegian ports with Denmark, Sweden and Germany.

Train Trains reach as far north as Bodø, with an additional branch line connecting Narvik with Sweden further north. Book in advance for considerably cheaper minipris tickets.
Bus Services along major routes are fast and efficient. Although reliable, services in more rural areas can be infrequent, sometimes with no services at all on weekends.
Boat Ferries, many of which take cars, connect offshore islands to the mainland, while the Hurtigruten sails from Bergen to Kirkenes and back every day of the year.
Car Roads are in good condition, but travel times can be slow thanks to winding roads, heavy summer traffic with few overtaking lanes, and ferries.
Air SAS and Norwegian have extensive domestic networks. Widerøe services smaller cities.
