Driving

The stadium’s address for satnav is as follows:

  • Fridtjof Nansens gate 19C, 3722 Skien, Norway

Car Parks

There is a decent sized car park just north-west of Skagerak Arena behind the main stand, as well as a smaller car park to the east.

Train - Public Transport

The city is served by two stations: Skien Gamle which is in the downtown area and Skien Nye which is is one stop along northwards. Both are well under 2.0 km away from Odd’s football ground so it really makes no odds which one you travel to.

Airports and Flying

Skien Airport approximately 6 km south-west of the city is undoubtedly the closest airport however it only really serves domestic flights to Bergen. Therefore Sandefjord Airport 60 km or so away is the closest International Airport.

Hotels Near Stadium

Of all the hotels in the city centre Dag Bondeheim AS is easily the best value for money, as the other options such as Thon Hotel and Clarion Collection Hotel Bryggeparken are all four stars and at least 40% more expensive.
