Oslo Airport to Oslo Centre

Hello

We are flying from Manchester to Tromso in Feb and we have 4hr 50mins waiting time in Oslo.

We would like to see some of Oslo whilst we are there, can anyone advise of the best way to do this?

Thanks

Airport train to Oslo central (from Oslo airport Gardermoen, NOT from Torp or Moss airports) is 19 min (depart every 10 min), tickets about 170 NOK. Local trains are cheaper and slower.

Nearly 5 hours at Oslo airport may seem a lot, but arriving from Manchester and continuing on a domestic flight you need quite a bit of time. Your luggage will not be checked through to Tromsø and you need to collect your luggage in Oslo, clear customs and head upstairs for luggage drop-off to your destination. Any tax free shopping will have to be done at this point (before customs). Arriving from Manchester there is also passport control. For the departure to Tromsø, you need to allow time for going through security.

As klima indicates, you need to allow about an hour to recover baggage and check in. And then an hour for security and walking to gate to arrive 30min before take-off. In between, assuming your flight is on time, you would have less than 3 hours. Allow 30mins each way waiting for train and journey. I doubt a couple of hours in Oslo is worth the NOK 340 it would cost. You could take the local train which is only a couple of minutes slower, but only runs 2x per hour so likely more waiting time. However the return journey would only cost NOK 90 assuming you started the return within 2 ½ hours, perhaps you'd consider a walk over the Opera roof worth that.
