Getting to Jotunheimen National Park

- with public transportation

Valdresekspressen, Øst-VestXpressen and Fjordekspressen (Nor-Way)

With 6 daily departures from Oslo, as well several daily departures from Gardermoen. Valdresekspressen is by far the most eco-friendly way to travel to and from Jotunheimen from the capital area. Øst-VestXpressen operates buses in both directions from Bergen to Lillehammer through Fagernes with connection into Jotunheimen. Fjordekspressen has departures from Bergen to Trondheim through Lom.

The buses are new, modern 50+ seat buses (over 42 foot). Free WIFI, USB and power outlets are available on most of the buses. These long vehicles are very steady on the road and provide a comfortable journey. The length also enables good foot-room and reclining space between the seats. All seats have seat belts, use of which is mandatory. The temperature in the bus is of course regulated with air conditioning creating a comfortable environment for all season.
