It's easy to get here
By means of plane:
Sandefjord, one of the closest cities to OCC, is one recommended port of entry for the World Winner Show of 2024. Sandefjord has an international airport and a ferry port with entry with ferries from Sweden.
Besides being a port of entry, Sandefjord is also one of the older settlments in Norway dating back to the Viking ages, also known as the whaling capital of the world, back in the 1800s.
Tønsberg is known as one of the oldest city in all of Norway, dating back to the Viking ages.
Tønsberg is a 17 - 18 minute drive from OCC or 50 minutes by public transportation.
Oslo, capital city of Norway, has a population of about 500.000 people. The city and its surroundings have about 1 million of Norway's 5 million population.
Oslo is about 1 hour and 25 minutes by car from OCC, or 2 hour and 15 minutes by public transportation.
Oslo airport, Gardermoen, is another 30 - 45 minutes further north of Oslo, and is available by car and train.
Larvik, also dating back to the Viking ages, is a city south of OCC and Sandefjord. Larvik is a port of entry for ferry connections from Denmark. If you come by car from Europe, this is one of the recommended ways to get here.
Larvik is also known for the famous archeologist Thor Heyerdahl and author Ingvar Ambjørnsen.
Nearby you find the coastal place called Stavern, which is also worth a visit.
This means weather can be a mix of good weather with sun and temperatures around 5 - 10 degrees celcius.
But it may also mean rainy weather and even snow, and temperatures dropping below 0.
So, we recommend to bring good warm clothes which is suitable for cold days and winter.
And if you have a cat which may be sensitive to the cold, we recommend bringing some cover for your cage and a good bed/blanket which keeps them warm.
Your car needs to be fitted with tires that are suitable for Norwegian winter-roads.
From 1st of November each year, you are no longer allowed to drive with so called summertires. The tiers have to be fit for winter. They may be tires with studs, or studd-less. As long as they are allowed for winter.
For the rest - in the area where OCC is, there are no specific rules.
However, if you drive in to Oslo, there are rules for driving tires with studded tires and you have to pay a fee.
