Granted this is off-season, but the fares are amazing and you can fly elsewhere beyond Stockholm once you’ve positioned yourself.

So how much is 2308 NOK? It’s US$276.
Since this is being charged in a foreign currency, be sure to use a credit card that doesn’t add foreign transaction fees. I find that MasterCard currency conversions are the most reliably favorable. So my card of choice is Citi Prestige because:
- No foreign transaction fees
- MasterCard currency conversion
- Triple points on airfare
