Default From Barcelona to La Coruna

we(Rosenborg) haven't even played against Bohemians yet, but if we are lucky enough to beat them, we will meet you guys. Now, my question is as follows: What would be a cheap and fast way in order to get from Barcelona to La Coruna?

The reason I ask from Barcelona is the following: Most airlines in Europe fly to Barcelona, ryanair being one of them, while very few of them fly to Madrid, or La Coruna. and if I were to see the game in La Coruna, I'd probably want to stay a few days in Barcelona as well.

I know some spanish, but I have no idea what the most known train and bus companies are called. So if someone could help me out with this matter, I'd be grateful. Local plane companies could also be useful.

I am not Spanish, have lived in Barcelona and from there traveled to La Coruña... so I'm suited to help you guys out!

When you talk about "fast", what do you mean? Norway is a large country, at least it's long...

If you take the bus from Barcelona to La Coruña you will be dead when you arrive (I have heard...). The train takes about 13 hours, and there's a possibility to sleep in it. The airplane tariffs I don't know, because when I went there it was Iberia offer month. Anyway, I had a direct flight BCN-COR and flew back via Madrid...

I suppose fast is everything from 1-10 hours :P

so it seems that by plane might be the only option...

Yes, if 10 hours is the maximum you should take a plane...

There is an airport at Coruña but only Iberia flies here so prices are not cheap, at Santiago (60kms away from A Coruña) there is a bigger airport and I'm pretty sure you will find cheaper prices to fly there from Barcelona. Besides Iberia there are 2 air companies for national flights: Air Europa and Spanair. Try to find some bargains through the web-sites like these:
http://www.aireuropa.com/es/index20.htm
I also found at www.Spanair.es that Oslo -Madrid/Barcelona is 225€ and you should add 30€ to fly to another Spanish city, may you should take that, 255€ to fly to Santiago is a good offer

Yes, forget about train and bus (very cheap, but veeery slow). Plane is the only option for you.
Check www.iberia.com or www.iberia.es, because sometimes they have special offers in order to compete with aireuropa and spanair.
If you're just a bit lucky you can find a decent price for a direct flight Barcelona-Santiago, and then going to A Coruña is easy, as anuroc said (just take a train or bus and you're there in 1 hour, and it's cheap as well).
I'd forget to fly straight to A Coruña unless you want to spend big money (anyway, you can always check the prices at www.iberia.com, just in case!).

Why dont you try flying into Lisbon then travel Coruna. This would be much faster.

But in going to Lisbon he also has the problem of having to take a train/bus to A Coruña, 'cos flights are expensive, and that's a pain in the... believe me...
Another resonable option would be going to Porto, which is closer, but once again, I'm not sure if Porto operates with low-cost companies... (a Porto-A Coruña bus is cheap and relatively fast: you never leave the motorway!).
