Transport:

If you come by plane, you will arrive at Værnes airport, which is about a 30minutes drive north of Trondheim.

  1. From Værnes Airport take the airport bus ‘flybussen’ into  Trondheim: http://flybussen.no/Trondheim

    The airport bus stop is right outside Arrivals and leaves every 10 minutes. You can buy the ticket on board (130 NOK) and pay with credit card or cash in Norwegian kroner.

    (You can also pre-book an airport taxi ‘flytaxi’, which is a collective taxi at a fixed price of 390 NOK. Has to be ordered at least one hour before arrival: Trøndertaxi +47 930 07373. A group of up to 4 people can order a ‘familietaxi’ for 599 NOK under the same number)
     
  2. get off the airport bus at the bus stop: ‘Dalen Hageby’ (remember: you have to press the red button for the bus to stop!)
  3. From here it is a 15 minutes walk to luftkrigsskolen (slightly uphill, about 1 km  http://tinyurl.com/DalenHageby-luftkrigsskolen ).
  4. If you can’t or don’t want to walk: get off the airport bus at any of the bus stops after Dalen Hageby, cross the street, and take bus nr. 22 in the opposite direction. Get off at ‘Gina Krogs veg’ – the entrance to the “luftkrigsskolen” is just opposite. Remember that you have to signal the bus to stop!

For bus time tables and info see the AtB website: https://www.atb.no/?lang=en_GB You can buy tickets on board with the driver, but it is expensive and you need cash (50 Norwegian kroner one way).
