Travel to Volda:
From Abroad – Oslo to Volda
The recommended, and most comfortable way to travel, is to fly to Ørsta/Volda airport via Oslo airport (Gardermoen). The flight from Oslo to Ørsta/Volda airport takes approximately 1 hour. Look for youth/student tickets which are cheaper than regular adult tickets. Also, you should book in advance, as the cheapest tickets are sold out quickly. Ørsta/Volda airport is located only 10 minutes’ drive from Volda and we arrange pick-up service from the airport, provided you sign up for it. For tickets Oslo-Volda, see: www.wideroe.no
Another way to get from Oslo to Volda is to take the night bus. The bus leaves from downtown Oslo and stops by Oslo airport Gardermoen on the way to Volda (Rutebilstasjon). The journey takes a little over 10 hours and the cheapest youth ticket will cost you about 80 EUR. You can book your bus ticket at www.vy.no
The travel time from the Ålesund airport Vigra, via Moa, to Volda (Rutebilstasjon) is about 2,5 hours. Be aware that you will have to change bus during the trip at MOA bus terminal. From the airport take the shuttle bus to MOA (bus terminal). From Moa you can take a connecting bus to Volda once every hour. Note that the bus tickets will be app. 25 EUR and that you must check the bus schedule to make sure that you can catch the connecting bus. Visit www.entur.no.
