Cabins and Camping

Although Norway has a reputation for being a cold country, this need not be true during summer months. For those who enjoy camping or cabin life, conference delegates can check in at Nidelv Camping, beautifully located at the river bank of Nidelva. The camping is situated 5 km from Arendal city center and the conference venue. There is a 12 minute bus drive from the camping to the city center, and buses run every half hour in the morning/day and every hour in the evening. All students (bachelor’s, master’s and PhD’s) staying at Nidelv Camping will receive a FREE 1 week pass to the buss, supported by ICFT 2019.

We have reserved 12 cabins for conference delegates. All cabins fit two people per bedroom/loft, and the standard is simple but cosy.
