All-you-can-fly passes are any traveler’s dream. With the latest offering from Widerøe, which is the largest regional airline in the Nordics and is owned by the SAS Group, you can fly within Norway as much as you want for two weeks. The travel period is between July 1 and August 31, 2017, so you must purchase your Explore Norway ticket and select your two weeks between those dates.
For a fixed rate, you can select where you want to fly within Norway. As you can see in the image below, the country is split into three zones — obviously, the fewer zones you purchase with your pass, the less expensive it will be.
The “Zone Southern Norway” includes everything south of (and including) Trondheim, such as Oslo, Kristiansand and Bergen. The middle section of the country, or “Zone Nordland,” includes everything between Tronheim and Tromsø, including Bodø and Harstad. Finally, the most northern part of the country, or “Zone Finnmark,” includes everything between Tromsø and Kirkenes, including Sørkjosen, Alta and Vardø.
Here’s how the pricing breaks down for each of the passes:
To make sure you’re getting the best deal, it might make sense to play around with some currency conversions and book your pass in Norwegian Krone. For example, the Whole of Norway pass costs $560 when booked in USD, but based on current conversion rates, booking in Norwegian Krone, you’ll pay about $543. Either way, make sure you book with a card that doesn’t charge foreign transaction fees, such as the The Platinum Card® from American Express (See Rates & Fees)— plus, you’ll earn 5x points on your purchase.
If you choose to buy one of the Explore Norway tickets, you can’t fly more than four times between the same city pairs — for example, between Oslo (OSL) and Bergen (BGO). If you’re planning to take advantage, note that you do have some flexibility — except for the first flight, you’re allowed to change your itinerary and you can book up to two hours before departure.
Some more good news: If you’re based outside of Norway (but within select cities in Europe), your first and last flights between any of the following routes are included in the price of the Explore Norway pass:
- Aberdeen (ABZ) — Stavanger (SVG) and Bergen (BGO)
- Gøteborg (GOT) — Oslo (OSL)
- København (CPH) — Kristiansand (KRS) and Sandefjord (TRF)
Overall, this is a really neat opportunity — especially if you’ll be in the region or are planning a trip to Norway. And, generally speaking, the rates for two weeks of unlimited travel — starting at just $401 — are pretty unbeatable.
