WHERE TO STAY IN ARVIKA?


Travelling to Musikhögskolan Ingesund (Ingesund School of Music).



By train:

Travel to train station Arvika. It is located on Stockholm – Oslo railway line and therefore is easily accesible from most of the places in Scandinavia. The journey takes about 3-4 hours from Stockholm and around 2 hours from Oslo. Find the time schedules and tickets here: www.sj.se. Note that the trains to and from Oslo are undergoing repairs and schedules might differ from day to day.

Upon arriving at Arvika train station look for the bus no. 51 to Ingesund. The bus stop is located next to the train station. You have to go to the end stop Ingesunds Musikhögskola and you will arrive at the main entrance of the school. Check the timetable at www.varmlandstrafik.se because the buses don’t run very often. In the journey planner type in Arvika Järnvägsstationen as a starting point and Ingesunds Musikhögskola as a final stop.

Then look for the bus no. 51 to Ingesund. 

Alternatively you can take a bus directly from Arlanda airport to Karlstad (www.swebus.se, www.nettbuss.se ) and after that take a train Karlstad C – Arvika (www.sj.se ).
