The flights do go to Rygge Airport – I didn’t realise it at the time (I also didn’t realise that it’d be difficult to get to/from the airport that late at night!).
After I booked a hotel I decided to look at how to get to the hotel. Since I am arriving at 10.55pm on Friday night I thought that I’d book a taxi.
I looked for about an hour and was disappointed to find one taxi company that was charging about 200 GBP to get to and from Oslo.
Disappointed, I decided to cancel my hotel and look for places that are close to Rygge Airport but still close enough to Oslo to be able to catch the train in.
I managed to find a hotel that is very close to the train station. The taxi prices were also much cheaper.
So, if you are planning on getting a cheap flight to Norway and you are arriving late at night, the best option would be to go to Moss to stay. Even if it’s for one night. If I was in Norway for longer and I would have stayed one night in Moss and then gone to Oslo the next day.
I’m looking forward to staying out of Oslo.
On the Sunday before I leave I would love to go to this place:
I’ll then grab a quick bite to eat and just wander around and see what I can find.
Since I am flying Ryanair (and I have heard bad things about them), I’d better get to the airport on time…just incase they decide to close check-in early.
So excited about this trip now!
