Bergen Airport Flesland is located outside of town. The most efficient way to get into town is by using the Flybussen, which shuttles between the airport and the city center, the trip taking approximately 35 min. Tickets can be bought online (after you have chosen your route), by mobile (App required) or in the bus (cash or credit card). If you buy a return ticket, it will be a bit cheaper than buying two single tickets. Return tickets are valid for one year. For more information, please have a look at the Flybussen website. In the city center, the bus stops in the vicinity of several hotels. For Radisson Blu Hotel Norge, leave the bus at Festplassen.
Regarding customâ€™s regulations, please have a look at the following website: Customs.
The Norwegian Krone (NOK) is the currency in Norway. You will find ATMâ€™s at the airport and also in town.
