Norway is generally a very safe country for travel with punctual and clean public transport. Nearly all Norwegians speak excellent English and are very helpful. If you have any difficulties you shouldn’t have any trouble finding someone who can point you in the right direction.
Norwegian Air, Ryan Air and SAS
Sky Scanner has quite flexible search options.
Google Flights is an easy way to do flight research on availability and prices but does not seem to list Norwegian Air which often has the cheapest flights.
Sandefjord is only a few miles from Oslo Torp – one of the main Oslo Airports. The other Oslo Airport is Gardermoen. Make sure you don’t get the two mixed up. Gardermoen is a two-hour train ride from Sandefjord.
There is a regular shuttle bus service from Sandefjord/Oslo Torp Airport to the nearest train station. From there, get a train to Sandefjord. Check train times – it looks like there is only one train an hour to Sandefjord.
Train journeys in Norway are spectacular. Train travel in Norway is clean and surprisingly reasonably priced.

The exact location of Trinovante is finalised only on arrival in port. Assuming we have internet coverage we then email the joining crew and update the Google Map below. This map gives you enough information to plan your travel and familiarise yourself with the area but remember we may be on a different pontoon or quay on the day. You can always phone us to check.
You can also follow Trinovante on AIS, which will give an accurate location of our position in port. Vessel Finder is just one web site that provides free AIS ship tracking. Many of our crew now use AIS apps on their smartphones to find us.
We do our very best to provide accurate travel information on this page, but it is not guaranteed to be correct or up to date.
