Hønefoss is a city in East Norway, in the county of Buskerud .


Get in

By plane

Oslo Airport Gardermoen [1] OSL is the closest airport with bus transfer several times each day to and from Hønefoss. Look for the buses marked "Askeladden"

By train

Trains pass through on their way to Bergen, Oslo and Drammen. About two hours travel time from Oslo. The train station is located just outside of town, within walking distance from the town centre. Just follow the foot-path downhill.

By car

By bus

Buses leave every hour from Oslo Bussterminal, until late in the evening. Night-buses on the weekends. The trip takes around one and a half hours, and is worth it for the view alone. You will get a magnificent view over the great Tyrifjord Lake, one of Norway's biggest inland lakes. Make sure you get a seat on the left side of the bus when travelling from Oslo, to get the best view.

Askeladden reiser [2] has a regular transport from Hønefoss to Oslo airport Gardermoen [3] eight times every day from 05:30 in the morning to the last return from the airport at 10:45 in the evening, except for saturdays. Check the schedule under the link "Gardermobussen". [4]

Get around











As in all of Norway, there are few real budget accommodations available. The cheapest option is to simply camp out in one the many woodlands that surround the town. One such place, within short distance from the town centre, is in the Kartverk-forest. Take a bus from the centre to the stop "Kartverket" and simply walk into the forest from here. Always remember, if you're travelling Norway on a limited budget, that you can camp anywhere you want as long it's not in someones back-yard or on a cultivated field.


  • Hønefoss Gjestehus, Ringeriksgata 20 ('next to the stadion), +47 321 22903, A former hostel, now offers several OK rooms in a nice, quiet location right next to the river and Sjongslunden Park. 550NOK for a double including breakfast(195NOK per extra person in room)
