The report describes the extent and structure of long distance journeys (100 km or more) within Norway and journeys between Norway and abroad. The results show that 42 percent of the population aged 13 and above undertake at least one long distance journey within Norway each month. The corresponding proportion for foreign journeys is 11 percent. About three-quarters of all long distance journeys are for private purposes. The car remains that means of transport chosen by the majority but the plane has captured a large market share of journeys exceeding 300 km since the last travel survey in 1992.
