It`s an expensive trip with taxi! It`s about 140 km...

Please check http://www.nor-way.no for Bus Express.

The name of this route is Sørlandsexpressen, I guess...

9.50 pm from Fokserød (close to airport) is the last one... http://tinyurl.com/2uhhs5z

To fly to Torp in the late evening when Arendal is your destination is not a smart thing to do. Low-cost flights are often delayed, and the ground transport (rental car is your best option) will easily cost you more than whatever you save on a cheap air ticket. Get an earlier flight, and fly to Kristiansand, much closer to Arendal.

Its too expensive to take a taxi all the way to Arendal! The last bus leave at 21.50 so your best options is to take a taxi to Sandefjord Motorhotel, (about 3 km from the airport, ca 150 NOK with a taxi), stay here for the first night an continue to Arendal the next morning. Or else you can rent a car. Arendal is 1.5 hours driving time from Sandefjord Airport.

Bus from Fokserød, the busstop is just outside the door of Sandefjord Motorhotel, …nor-way.no/nbeiis/… or

FunItaly may be a fast driver, but it is not possible to drive 150km on Norwegian roads in 1,5 hrs. Gule sider says 1 hr. 50 min., Google maps says 2 hrs. 27 min.

There seems to be three options that are not mentioned on the Torp airport internet site:

1) A bus company called "Konkurrenten" also stops at Fokserød (2 kilometers from the ariport) on the way to Arendal. If you come on a Sunday, their last bus calls at 23.05. On other days, their last call is 21.05.

2) The railway company NSB runs buses from the airport that correspond with trains from Drammen to Arendal. The last corresponding bus leaves Torp at 21.40:

3) The bus company Lavprisekspressen also calls at the airport on the way to Arendal. Unfortunately, it only has departures twice a day, at 11.10 and 17.40.
