Deal Alert: Flights to Scandinavia on Full-Service Carriers From $304 Round-Trip
This post contains references to products from one or more of our advertisers. We may receive compensation when you click on links to those products. Terms apply to the offers listed on this page. For an explanation of our Advertising Policy, visit this page.
Airfare deals are typically only available on limited dates. We recommend you use Google Flights to find dates to fly, then book through an online travel agency such as Orbitz or Expedia, which allows you to cancel flights without penalty by 11pm Eastern Time within one day of booking. However, if you’re using The Platinum Card® from American Express, you’ll need to book directly with the airline or through the Amex Travel portal to get 5x MR points. Remember: Fares may disappear quickly, so book right away and take advantage of Orbitz or Expedia’s courtesy cancellation if you’re unable to get the time away from work or family.
Full-service airlines from every alliance have lowered prices to Oslo, Norway (OSL), and Stockholm, Sweden (ARN). You can fly from departure cities across the country to both Scandinavian destinations with prices starting from just $304 round-trip. Most fares are in basic economy, so you’ll have to pay extra for a checked bag and seat selection.
Cheap flights are available on many routes throughout the year, except during peak summer dates. You can make a quick hop to a city further north to try and catch the majestic northern lights — just make sure you book when you have the best chance of seeing them from September through April.
To search, head to Priceline or Expedia.
