By air

Many international airlines travel to Oslo Lufthavn (Gardermoen) and from there you can get to Trondheim Lufthavn (Værnes). The airlines KLM, SAS, Norwegian and Widerøe travels to and from Trondheim.

From the airport

Information on how to get from the airport (Værnes) to Trondheim city centre by bus, train or taxi

When you arrive at Værnes airport, the easiest way to the city center is to take the Airport bus 
There are two different bus companies, but we recommend the blue/purple one called “Flybussen”. When you walk out of the airport building (1st floor), the bus is located on the right side. Departure is every every 10 minutes. You can pay with cash or card at the bus, the cost is approximately 150 NOK for one way ticket. The bus takes approximately 35 minutes to the city center. Tip: Buy return ticket in the same purchase if you`re planning to travel with “Flybussen” back to the airport after the conference. That will save you some money. 

Trondheim offers accommodation in many categories. City centre is small and compact so regardless of which hotel you choose, the conference venue and the city’s attractions, restaurants and shops will be within walking distance.

Below are some suggestions:

Clarion Hotel & Congress Trondheim (can also be booked through the registration portal) 



P-Hotels Trondheim and P-Hotels Brattøra

Trondheim is one of the largest cities in Norway and is located in between the northern and the southern part of Norway. It melts the best of each and highlights them in the ‘’trønder-attitude’’. Here you are close to nature as well as experiencing a vibrant city centre. That makes Trondheim an ideal place for ambivalent city dwellers.

We recommend you visit these sites for more information about what to do in Trondheim (the city) and Trøndelag (the region), but we have some suggestions for you:

Trondheim has a well established public transport offer and it is easy to get around from one place to another. The distances between each part of the city is not too long, and most of it can be dealt with by your own feet or by bicycle.

Public transport

The busses have an app called ‘’Atb Mobillett’’ which comes in handy concerning price and practicalities. The ticket involves access to bus, trams and boats. One ticket for an adult costs 41 norwegian kroner (NOK) if you use the app. For kids/seniors they cost 25 NOK.

The tram can take you from St.Olavs gate in the city centre to Lian, located in Bymarka. The trip takes approximately 21 minutes and uses the same ticket system as the busses.
