Nutshell tickets at Oslo S  (1 Answer)

Hej! I am booking a Nutshell tour from Oslo to Bergen and the train leaves at 8 am on June 7. I will be picking my tickets up at the Oslo S station. Is the ticket office open 24 hours? I am wondering if I can pick them up when I arrive from Sweden at 10 pm the previous night, June 6 (less stress). If not possible, how early do you recommend we arrive to pick up tickets from the station and find our train?

Near Asgardstrand

Hello All,
I am visiting my sister-in-law who just had a baby. My wife are leaving this Friday for home. We are looking for traditional Norwegian food in the surrounding areas. Unfortunately we can only travel north to Horten or south to Tonsberg or in the general vicinity. That is our range of travel for this trip. We love everything that we have experienced since we have been here.

We would like to experience to the true Norwegian food with Norwegians at a moderate cost.

Thanks for your help and we hope to see you down the path sometime soon!!

Lodgings wents as low as40 a day! Wondering about meals. I assume a lot of produce is imported. What is a reasonable estimate per day for meals in November? Or is that sort of a constant all year?

3 hours in Reggi Airport

Dear VT'ers please excuse me for writing this on behalf of my son, but he's soon travelling to Alicante, but Direct flights to Alicante are prohibitively expensive and it is cheaper for him to fly via Oslo!

However he has three hours between flights at this airport (Ryanair are flying to Reggli, which I believe is about 60kms from Oslo, so I know he won't have time to visit the lovely city. However he would like to try some local food, and somewhere for him to go for lunch.

Can anyone please recommend me his options

Tak/ Thankyou

Jonathan

Can I visit my 'old' favourite spots in Oslo

I am planning a trip in the near future to Oslo, where I spent three years many many years ago. I have very fond memories of Oslo. Can anyone tell me the following: Does Club7 still exist? Is the University Dormatories still rentable in summer to tourists? Do they still sell live shrimps at 4.00 P.M at the port?
Can you still book a cabin etc for a stay in the countryside at the railway station? Does the Art Gallery/Art School still have a cafeteria for its art students etc? Tak ska de ha , Thanks in advance for your replies

Farm in Numedal  (19 Answers)

On my birth certificate, my father is listed as coming from Kongsberg. But thru a friend who did heavy genealogy work, I've learned he actually came from Numedal. My grandfather, Hans Jakob Mork took his name from the farm he owned there. A friend of my brother, a Canadian friend, has visited the church where my father was baptized. I think Kirkelot? Anyway, so if I wanted to stand on my grandfather's farm, I assumed it would start with a flight to Oslo. But then what would the next leg be? Is it realistic to think I could stay not in Oslo like the average tourist, but somewhere in Numedal, in the vicinity of my goal? How would one arrange that from America?

Student life and housing in Oslo  (3 Answers)

Hello!
I'm a 21 year old student that will come to Oslo to study for 10 months through the Erasmus program. My boyfriend is also coming with me but he is not a student.
I was wondering if somebody can help me with some information about student life in Oslo.
We are thinking about renting a room/flat/studio but I saw that the prices for rents are huge! Is it possible to find a ,preferably furnished, one room flat or studio with a private bathroom and kitchen in Oslo at about 4000-6000 NOK (or less :) ) in the suburbs with access to the metro or other ways of public transportation?
How is the renting market there? I will be arriving at the beginning of August but I have no idea where we will stay, do you think I can find a suitable place to live in a week or so? Until then I was thinking about staying at a hostel.
I know Oslo is an expensive city but what is the cost of living for 2 people a month considering we don’t smoke or drink and we generally cook our own food?

One night in Oslo  (4 Answers)

Hello!
In August we are arriving in a group of four, at Gardermoen airport, early afternoon. We've got to catch the next plane, at 9 next morning. The question is, how can we spend the night (except sleeping on a bench at the airport). Taking a train to Oslo an back seems expensive itself, not mentioning hotel prices. Maybe there is a place in Gardermoen offering bed and breakfast for a reasonable fee?
Thank you all in advance for your advice.
Andrzej.

Torp Express bus timetable  (1 Answer)

I am flying from Oslo Torp to Glasgow by Ryanair at 09.25am on Sunday 18 May. Torp Express website says that their daily bus service from Oslo Bus Terminal is timed to fit in with Ryanair departures. However, the published bus timetable does not indicate any early service on Sundays that would get to Torp in time for my flight. Has anyone else faced this problem and found an alternative means of transport?

Thanks.

Hotel Oslo/Connection to Tautra  (5 Answers)

Hi guys,
I do a short trip to Oslo pretty soon. Does anybody have a good idea for a reasonable prized hotel there? Maybe also a nice hostel might be fine.

Maybe I also visit the Island Tautra in the Tondheimfjords. Unfortunately I really do not have much time for this. What would be the best/fast option to get there? Is there just the option flying to Trondheim/ferry/train(?) or might it also be possible to use a train?

Thank you so much for your help,
Chris

Bars & Clubs in Oslo

My friends and I (5 of us) are staying at the SAS Radisson and we're looking for some advice. We showed up on Thursday and are staying through Sunday. One of my buddies brothers turns 21 on Saturday. Where should we go, and what should we do? Last night we went out in the city center. It was alright, Hard Rock, TGI Fridays, and your standard tourist spots. I'm looking for somewhere more local, somewhere where we can meet some Norwegians, not tourists. Tonight we're going to Grunerlokka. Any suggestions?
