You can check in in the departure hall in Oslo S, Trondheim S and Bodø stations before you go aboard. The check-in area is clearly marked with “Check-in sleeping compartment”. Our staff will assist you at this point.

Late check-in

Should you be too late for your check-in, make sure to go to the cafeteria aboard and check in there.

If you did not make it to the check-in at all, or if you boarded the train from another station, please contact our staff aboard no later than 30 minutes after departure if you have a sleeping compartment. Failing to do so will lead to your compartment being set as available to other passengers.

If you arrived with the train from Bodø to Trondheim and will continue your journey on the train to Oslo, you can check in to the next train aboard the cafeteria on your current train before you switch trains.
