Planning 7-8 days in Norway, starting 29th June 2016.
Getting confused with the size of the country and varied hues.
The idea is to achieve visiting places which gives gyst of Norway. Not neccesarily the touristy places.
Enjoy nature and that would be the focus.
Will be using public transport.
We are 2 of us.
Would like to plan in advance so that one has better deals.
My wife and I are currently planning our self drive trip to the Lofoten and Vesterålen Islands in June 2016. At the moment we are unsure how long to spend on the islands. Is 10 days too much?
For our full itinerary, we were thinking a couple of nights in Oslo, flying to either Bodo or Harstad/Narvik then driving around the Lofoten and Vesterålen Islands for 10 days, driving up to Senja then onto Tromso for a few days. Does that sound like a reasonable plan or should we change it?
Next summer, we plan to arrive by car, from south east to visit the Atlantic road, and later to Troll road -Trollstigen.
Please advise, which way to take: Dombås - Oppdal - Tingvoll or Dombås - Åndalsnes?
Thanks for your help!!
Could anyone help, please?
I land at Bergen airport shortly after midnight on a Saturday morning. Having checked the airport trains, there should be one at 00.30 and then one at 2.00.
Even though I'm travelling with hand luggage only, I wouldn't think I'd be able to make the first one of those buses, but I don't particularly want to hang around for the 2 o'clock one.
Would getting a taxi be a reasonable alternative and, does anyone happen to know how much the journey would cost, please?
March 2016 me and my girlfriend want to travel from the Netherlands to Norway by car. Has anyone of you done this before and do you recommend this? How are the roads in Norway during March and April? We hope you can give us any advice regarding this trip.
We are visiting all of the above in early February and I'm just after a few ideas on things to do at that time of year.
We have 3 nights in Oslo, 1 in Geilo and 4 in Bergen (doing the traveling by train)
Are there any nice trips we can take from Bergen? Not too far as we have 2 young children. Can you see any nice Fjords around there? Any good boat trips or do they have any passenger boat services?
We will only be in Geilo for 1 night so were thinking of just playing in the snow! Any other…
We are planning a self-drive trip from Copenhagen to Norway in Dec. Along the way, we will stop in Gothenburg before we head to Oslo. We want to experience the scenic Flam railway very much. Our plan is to drive to Flam from Oslo. stay one night in Flam and catch the roundtrip Flam-Mydra-Flam train early next morning, so that we are able to make time for the fjord cruise.
Is driving from Oslo to Flam too taxing in the winter? We have driven in Switzerland last winter. The roads were mostly…
Vague plan is to fly into Bergen mid August and spending about a week hiking. First thing we found searching was of course Trolltunga which sounds both amazing but also of course really well known so not exactly the best route to experience that whole "alone in the wilderness" thing that we'd like - especially in peak season. But given that we've got a few days at our disposal is it possible to carry on beyond Trolltunga or start somewhere other than Skjeggedal to get a bit more away from…
Has anyone visited the Isle of Vega in Early november? Is this possible and is there accommodation at this time of the year and transport? THinking of trying to visit somewhere relatively remote but not too hard to get to to see the natural landscape of norway, preferably by the coast…
My partner and I want to cycle to Nordkapp, Norway via the EV1 and EV12 route. We plan on starting the trip at the beginning of may 2016. We will be taking our small dog as well.
This year we cycled from England to Prague then to Cuxhaven, north Germany, and then back to England via Holland. We had a fantastic time and it was our first long distance trip. Our dog came with us on that trip.
I need some advice regarding the terrain and the inevitable mountains and heights to cycle up and…
