What's the best way to get back from Kirkenes to Oslo or Bergen in Mid of Dec 2013? Norwegian air is not offering way back after Oct and SAS is ted expensive, 1750SEK/pax. Any other options?

SAS and Norwegian are the only options. You will have to wait a few months and book with Norwegian when tickets for December become available for booking.

From the price (note, in Norway it's NOK - Norwegian Kroner) you quote I'm gathering you want to travel on December 21st. This is a Saturday an the least popular day for airtravel domestically in Norway.

Due to this SAS do not have any direct flights on Saturdays from Kirkenes to Oslo, only via Tromso. If you travel the next day (Sunday 22nd) prices are less than half compared to Saturday flights. Going to Bergen will in all cases be more expensive as it usually entails a connection in Oslo.

If you must travel on the 21st then you'll best wait for Norwegian to release their tickets for Winter -13/14. These tickets have startet popping up the last week or so and will continue to be released in the coming weeks. So check back on norwegian.com every other day to see if they've been released.

Dec 21st will also be the start of the Christmas holidays and I suspect many would want to travel on this particular date. I suspect this is the reason why the prices are high. Airlines tend to start off with quite high prices on popular travel days. They may or may not drop at a later stage.
