Day 1 – Sep 22nd

Arrival at Bergen Airport “Flesland” (BGO)

A member of OC GFL2025 will meet you at the airport from 09:30 to welcome you, assist with your luggage, and offer complimentary coffee, soft drinks, and sandwiches. For transportation from Bergen Airport Flesland to the city center, we recommend taking the Bergen Light Railway (Bybanen) to the end station, “Byparken”. (Buy your own tickets at the airport)

A member of OC GFL2025 will then meet you at Byparken, where you’ll receive a map and the opportunity to explore Bergen’s highlights, including Bryggen, the Fish Market, The Fløibanen funicular, and more at your own pace, before meeting the rest of the group at 16:15 at Bergen Jernbanestasjon (Railway Station).
We’ll all catch the train to Voss, checking in at Park Hotel Vossevangen, for dinner & party…… Here we’ll also have the draw for the starting order in the giant slalom and snowboard competition and reveal the theme for the theme party in Hemsedal.
