From fjords to Vikings to iconic art, the Norwegian capital of Oslo has much to offer visitors. This fall, you can experience all of Oslo's charm firsthand with this limited-time deal on Air France.

The best prices for this deal are from New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Round-trip flights with a short layover cost about $230 — 71% less than the usual $800 tickets. You'll also spot several SkyTeam codeshares on these deals to Oslo, with space on KLM and Delta Air Lines in addition to Air France.

We've been seeing some great deals to Oslo and Norway recently, but these fares are really notable if you're looking to save money. Flights this cheap to one of the world's priciest countries will leave you with plenty of leftover kroner to see "The Scream" in person at the National Gallery, or to take a scenic boat tour of the Oslo Fjord. You can also use Oslo as a jumping-off point to explore the rest of this Nordic gem.
