By train

An extensive rail network links Norway to the other Scandinavian countries and the rest of Europe. National trains are served by NSB.

There are regular train connections to Oslo from Copenhagen, Stockholm and Gothenburg.

Most train journeys from the continent are overnight, and you will find sleeping compartments on all of them

The nearest train station to the festival site is Otta, from where it is a 1 hour drive to Gjendesheim.

Travel suggestions:

Berlin - Otta | Brussel - Otta | London - Otta | Stockholm - Otta

By plane

Oslo Airport (OSL) is the nearest airport to the festival. It is Norways main airport or international traffic. Oslo Airport has scheduled flights to and from more than 100 destinations.

Take the festival bus from the airport, or hire a car to get to the mountains (4 hour drive).

By boat

Ferry connections to Norway are possible from Denmark, Germany and Sweden. Most ferry operators offer package deals that include bringing a car.

If you arrive by boat in Oslo, it´s walking distance to the city center where the festival bus departs from.

By bus

Reach Norway by bus from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, and Russia.

Bus service from Gothenburg in Sweden and Copenhagen in Denmark is almost hourly. The service from Stockholm is also far more frequent than the train. Different operators offer cheap bus tickets between the large cities in Norway, Denmark and Sweden.

From Oslo you can take the festival bus (see below) to the venue from the city center or Oslo Airport (OSL).
