Stopover in Oslo (allow a minimum of 1 hour between connecting flights!)

You MUST allow for a minimum of 1 hour for your stopover in Oslo. Norway is not an EU-member and you have to pick up your luggage and take it through customs:

  • pick up your luggage at „Baggage Claim“ upon arrival in Oslo
  • pass through customs control
  • take it to „Baggage Drop-off“ one floor higher

Arrival in Tromsø

You should arrive in Tromsø Saturday before 13:30 h. I will meet you at the airport. The total travel time from Central Europe is typically between 7 and 12 hours.

Tip:  Excess Baggage

If 8 kg of hand luggage, 20 kg checked-in baggage and the ski bag are not enough, you can wear your ski boots (approx. 3 kg) during the flight and carry comfortable shoes in your hand luggage.

Tip: ABS-Avalanche Airbag

According to IATA regulations (International Air Transport Association) for the transport of avalanche airbags on flights, the backpack must be carried as hand luggage with the release handle and cartridge fitted.

Customs Regulations

Alcohol is very expensive in Norway and the choice is restricted in our location (except for beer). Tip: Bring your own favourite drinks from your home country or from the duty-free shop. You may import 3 liters of wine (four  0,75l-bottles) and 2 liters of beer (one sixpack of small cans).
