Weather in the summer is highly variable: overcast, chilly, drizzly days are interspersed with beautiful warm, sunny days.
All international and domestic flights land at the small, modern Langnes Airport (TOS).

There is also a dedicated "Airbus" (Flybussen) that will take you straight into the town centre, only stopping at a few hotels along the way. Taxis are also available, for an unknown price.
