More Options for Travel to Oslo

International airfare can take a huge bite out of a travel budget. So I was excited to read that Norwegian Airlines will soon offer nonstop service from New York to Oslo. From May 30 to June 24, Norwegian will offer two flights between New York (JFK) and Oslo Gardermoen airport per week. Starting June 25, there will be three flights a week. And the price is right: flights start at $339 one way. This is great news for travelers—particularly if you live on the East Coast!

While Oslo is often a first or last stop for travelers visiting Norway, it's also a great destination in itself. Check out this video from It will put you in the mood to spend a day, a weekend, or a whole week kicking around Norway's beautiful capital.
