On your next family trip abroad, experience firsthand why the people of Norway have been named the happiest in the world. Venture to the Scandinavian country with the kids and experience the Northern Lights, fjords and stunning natural beauty amid a bustling urban lifestyle. Immerse yourselves in the local culture of small towns between scenic excursions with the family — now you just have to narrow down the locale.

Oslo Airport

Fly into the capital city, Oslo, at the main airport hub, Oslo Airport. Although the busiest airport, Oslo is the most convenient for getting into the city and offers easy transportation by way of shuttle train, Flytoget Airport Express Train. Grab the bags, snag the kids and head for the Flytoget Train, departing every 10–20 minutes. Flytoget transports travelers to the city in about 19–22 minutes and is fast, easy and affordable.

Enjoy the city’s bustling nightlife, bourgeoning restaurant scene and pristine downtown area. Shop and sightsee by day and head out for a few shows at night. Bring the kids along or check in at the concierge for activities for them and caretaking services so you can head out just the two of you for drinks and lively entertainment at night.
