Arrival at ArlandaTo get to downtown Stockholm from Arlanda, there are several options:
Express. The fastest
option is to take the train Arlanda
Express (260 SEK one way). In the weekends, they have a special price (two
people for the price of one).
Get off at Stockholm City / Central station (~20 min). The central station is
also the hub for the subway
system of Stockholm.
Bus (Flygbussarna). Another option is to take the airport bus which will also take you
to the central station. If you
want to go directly to the conference site AlbaNova, you can also get off the
bus at Haga Forum and walk
(10-15 min) to the conference site. The airport bus costs 99 SEK one way and 198 SEK two-way.
- Taxi. The easiest option is of course to take a taxi directly to your hotel (or the conference site AlbaNova). All taxi companies serving Stockholm has fixed prices (around 500 SEK) to downtown Stockholm. If you go directly to the conference site AlbaNova, state that you want to go to 'AlbaNova University Center, Roslagstullsbacken 21'.
Arrival at SkavstaIf you instead arrive at Skavsta Airport, there is a bus service (Flygbussarna) that will take you to Stockholm City. The price is 129 SEK one-way and 248 SEK two-way. These buses run frequently daytime, but after 7 pm, they run when there are flights that land (and wait for delayed flights). As Skavsta is much further away than Arlanda, Taxi is not recommended from this airport.
