Ticket categories

When travelling on the night train you may choose between sleeping in a Standard seat, a Premium Pluss reclining seat or in your own sleeping compartment. The category Premium is not available in the night train.
The night train runs between Oslo and Trondheim on the Dovre line, and between Trondheim and Bodø on the Nordland line.


You can choose a Standard ticket, which includes a regular Standard seat and is the most economical option.
