Highlights/Attractions near Torp Airport

Hello,

My friend and I will be arriving in the Torp Airport on the 12th of Nov for 4 days. We might be staying in Sarpsborg for those days and we will be using public transport.

We would appreciate it if anyone could give us recommendations on "things to do" in surrounding areas including Oslo. Also, are there any fjords close by?

Also, are there any passes we could buy? (We are on a budget).

Looking forward to hearing your replies.

Ciss

To go to Sarpsborg you will have to cross the Oslo fjord. Torp is next to the the town Sandefjord on the western side of the fjord, while Sarpsborg is a little bit inland on the eastern side.

If you rely on public transport, you will probably have to go to the town Horten, have a ferry across to Moss and then commence by train or bus to Sarpsborg.

Here you can find the train tables:

Be aware that Torp Airport is located some 130 kms south of Oslo.

Going to Saprsborg will be time consuming. Is there any special reason for you going there for your stay - or are you considering other towns ?

Many thanks for your feedback, greek-traveller.

We're looking at staying in areas close to the Torp airport as we will be arriving in this airport on the 12th of Nov. We thought Sarpsborg would be close and would not be far from Oslo.

Now looking at Sandefjord or Tonsberg for accomodation.

If you like to make a day excursion for Oslo, you can look the the railway connection mentioned above. There is a frequent train service, and it is doable for one day.

To get an idea about Oslo, look up this site:
