How to get from the airport to the city center

Most international flights arrive at Oslo International Airport Gardermoen (avinor.no). There are several ways of getting from Gardermoen to Oslo:

  • One is the airport express train Flytoget (flytoget.no) which has quite an expensive travel fare, but will bring you to Oslo’s central train station in about 20 minutes.
  • There are also regular local Trains (nsb.no) that can transport you to the centre of town. These have cheaper fares, but run less often and might take slightly more time.
  • Airport buses Flybussen (flybussen.no) and Flybussekspressen (nor-way.no) stop at a number of Oslo destinations. The estimated time of travel on an airport bus is 45 minutes from Gardermoen to The Oslo Bus Terminal.
  • Finally, if you like to travel in style, taxis are plentiful but prices are very steep (up to 1000-1200 NOK from the airport to the city); these will take you wherever you want to go. From downtown Oslo, follow the directions below to get to either the downtown (law school) or Blindern campuses.
