Travel and stay in Oslo

Oslo got a reputation for being an expensive city, but that’s not necessary the case for hotels and flights if you book ahead. We try to do our best by open registration early and provide information in a timely manner. We will also have hosting options available with local dancers.


If you arrive by air at Gardermoen, it’s best to get to Oslo by train:

Regular train (VY): 23 minutes to Oslo Central station (Oslo S). (Our choice!)

Airport express train(Flytoget): Premium price, 19 or 22 minutes to Oslo Central station. Departure every 10 minutes

Taxi from the airport is very expensive and slow, avoid it!

If you go straight to the party or have accommodation nearby, «Nationaltheatret» is the nearest train station.

Getting around

If you stay in central Oslo, it’s easy to get around on foot to all the venues. If you stay with a local dancer you may need to travel by bus, tram or metro. You can use the Ruter app for purchasing tickets. We recommend not to buy tickets directly at the bus because they charge NOK 20 extra. More info at Ruter


There is some reasonably priced hotels in the city center. Booking well in advance is recommended.

We will work hard to match everyone who requests hosting with a friendly local dancer with a spare bed! It´s free! We cannot guarantee hosting, but will do our very best. You will be able to offer/ request hosting as part of the registration process.

You can find reasonably priced accommodation here:

And airbnb of course.
