Transport in Oslo

Airport transfer will be by a pre-booked bus for the whole group on the 20th and 26th. For those of you leaving on the 24th, you will get a ticket for the airport shuttle that leaves a five minute walk from the hostel.

You will each recieve a weekly pass for transport within the city center of Oslo. This will be valid for Subway, Buses, Trams and even the ferry to Hovedøya. For more information check out ruter.no. A pro tip is to download the #Ruter-app, it will help you to plan your individual travel. Remember to always bring your travel pass. Checks are frequent and the fee for not having a valid ticket is about 100 Euros.

Other relevant information

Prices are generally high in Norway, but convenience stores are a lot cheaper than kiosks and small shops. Be advised that a beer at a cafe/restaurant will cost you around 100 NOK/ 10 Euros.


Norwegians are quite time sensitive, so when the program states something starts at 12, it starts at 12. Be on time!

You can not buy alcohol in kiosks. Beer can be bought at convenience stores (until 20.00 on weekdays or 18:00 on Saturdays. No alchohol sold in stores on Sundays). For wine and spirits you need to go to Vinmonopolet.

Tap water in Norway is very good, and botteled water is expencive, so bring a water bottle.
