An important part of the TG experience is actually getting there. Here are the easiest ways to travel.
If you want to go by airplane, we recommend you land at Oslo Gardemoen (OSL), which is the closest to Hamar (about eighty km). There's a direct train connection from the airport to Hamar station. You can also fly to Sandefjord lufthavn, Torp (TRF), take a bus to Sandefjord, Tønsberg or Oslo and finally take another bus to Hamar.
By railway (and shuttlebuss from Hamar Stasjon to Vikingskipet)
You can go by train to Hamar station. The distance from there to Vikingskipet is approximately 2 km, so hiring a taxi may be a good idea. See NSBs website for train timetibles and other information.

If you want to drive to TG, check out Google Maps for directions. Vikingskipet has plenty of parking spots outside.
Read this if you are arriving in a car:
If you are arriving in the lane opposite the arena, please use the roundabout at the end of the road to change directions. Upon departure, access to the lane opposite the arena will be closed off, so everyone needs to initially head north when departing.
If you have a parking permit for the physically disabled, are arriving by taxi/bus, or if you're a sponsor, please use the regular parking entrance (the one further away from the roundabout) and follow the instructions given from there.
Everyone else must enter the parking lot from the entrance nearest the roundabout. From there, you will be directed by security to either the short term parking (max 10 mins, and the driver must stay in the car!), or long term parking.
Registration will be, at least, partially outside, so bring warm clothes. More accurate information on the registration and entry will be at Gathering.org just before the event opens.
Several bus companies will offer direct routes to TG from around Norway. Ordinary buses will arrive at Hamar skysstasjon. If you are organizing a bus trip to Vikingskipet, you may find other, bus seeking participants at our forums.
