The annual DHIS2 community island trip! Hangout out in our beautiful fjord, join the prestigious football match, swim in the fjord, pick mussels or just relax.

We will leave together from the University venue to the Island after lunch. So bring your fotball or swim suit with you in the morning! 

We will take the public ferry to Hovedøya, you can use your public transport pass, same as bus, tram, metro.

The ferry leaves from the docks in front of the City Hall, exact location here:

Note that this is NOT the same ferry terminal as last year.

Ferries B2 and B3 both go to Hovedøya, a ride that takes only 8 minutes.

The ferry leaves 15 and 45 min past every hour.
Given our group size we need to spread out a bit, so we can aim for 14:45,15:15 and 15:45.

Take the metro towards city center and get off at Nationaltheatret station. From there it is a 5 min walk to the ferry terminal.

The ferry returns back to the city at 19 and 49 every hour until the last ferry at 23:49.

Our base on the Island will be 10 min walk from the ferry terminal. Exact location here:

The weather forecast looks pretty good, mostly sunny. But it may get a bit windy, and we may get a light shower in the evening. So good to bring a jacket.

We will bring drinks and some light barbecue (sausages) to the island. In order to transport everything out there we need help from all of you! In our community spirit we will all carry one plastic bag each. Pick up the plastic bag after lunch and please return it to the UiO staff (look for signs) when you get to the HISP Beach on the island.

Look forward to seeing you all at the Island and to round off the conference in a truly Oslo-way out in the fjord.
