Getting to Trondheim
The city of Trondheim is situated by the Trondheim fjord in the middle of Norway in Northern Europe (see map). The location provides for quick and easy access by air from the European Continent, America and Asia. Norway is a small country and moderate distances also make travel by car or train interesting options.
Travelling by Air
Trondheim Airport Værnes (TRD) is the local airport of Trondheim and is located in Stjørdal, about 30 kilometers to the north-east of the city center. The airport offers regular domestic flights to and from most major cities in Norway, as well as daily flights with service to a few European cities.
Travelling through Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL)
Getting from Trondheim Airport to the Conference Venue
The airport shuttle ("Flybussen") to the center of the city corresponds with all flight arrivals, and is the easiest (and cheapest) way to get to city. On its route it passes most major hotels in city. Ask the driver for guidance when you purchase your ticket.
The shuttle buses are lined up in the street just outside the arrival terminal. Tickets are purchased after boarding the bus, and the fare is currently NOK 90 (major credit cards accepted).
Taxi from the airport to the city center is about NOK 600 depending on the time of day (night fares are more expensive).
Travelling by Train
Going by train to Trondheim is easily combined with arriving in Oslo by plane as the train passes Oslo Airport Gardermoen on its way from Oslo to Trondheim. (Travel time from Oslo Airport Gardermoen is about 6 hours). See Norwegian State Railways (NSB) for more information.
Trondheim Central Station is right in the city center.
Travelling by Car
There are a number of liners that will take you and your car from the continent (Denmark, Germany) or the British Isles to ports in the south of Norway (Oslo, Sandefjord, Larvik and Kristiansand) or west of Norway (Bergen, Haugesund and Stavanger). Most of these have daily departures in both directions. See Color Line and DFDS SEAWAYS for details.
You also have the option of crossing the Øresund bridge from Denmark to Sweden and driving through Sweden to Oslo and on to Trondheim.
Driving Directions Coming from the South
The E6 highway runs from Oslo north to Trondheim.
