We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Torp Sandefjord Airport (TRF) or Oslo Airport Gardermoen (OSL).
If riding the train from Oslo, disembark at the Sandefjord station. Travel time to/from Oslo is 1 hour and 48 minutes, and to Oslo Airport it is 2 hours 23 minutes. A shuttle bus meets all trains during the opening hours of the airport, and a bus trip takes four minutes to the airport terminal. The shuttle bus leaves the airport ten minutes before each train's scheduled departure. The bus is operated by NSB and is included in the price of the train ticket. There are 42 bus departures each day.
Your Trek Travel guides will meet you at TORP Sandefjord Airport (TRF) at 10:00 AM on the first day of the trip. After a beautiful 2-hour shuttle transfer deep into the Telemark backcountry, we'll take a short hike into the magical Canvas hotel where you'll receive a brief orientation and get fitted to your Trek Remedy.
If you will be late for the pick-up or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your guides. You will receive an email a week before the trip start with their names and contact details. You may take a taxi to the first night’s hotel for approximately $100.View our pre hotel recommendations
