Check the timetable at www.flytoget.no. The current price is NOK 160,- from the airport to the Oslo Central Station. You may also use one of the many direct busses. The bus leaves Oslo Airport Gardermoen every 20 minutes to the Bus terminal, which is located next to the Oslo Central Station. Check out the timetable at www.flybussen.no.

Oslo’s climate is actually better than the northern latitude might indicate. This is due to the Gulf Stream bringing warmth from the Gulf of Mexico up to the coast of Norway. Average daytime temperatures in the end of August and beginning of September, are about 17 degree celsius and lowest average temperatures at nighttimes are around 10 degrees celsius.
220 Volts, 50Hz AC. Standard European 2-round-pin plugs are used.
