I've just booked flights over for a couple of days next Saturday - Monday. Last time I did Preikestolen, I was on a bike and used the ferry to Tau, this time however, I am in a car.
What will be the quickest route to Priekestolen? Ferry to Tau or the ferry out of Lauvik? My flight gets in at 11am so I am hoping to be on the road by midday and start the hike by 3pm. Would this be leaving it too late?
The Sunday we are going to the Viking Stavanger game in the evening, hence we're kind of…
Hi there :)
I'm planning a trip to Norway in October, and it's the first time i'll be by myself. The main thing i want to do is hiking, wild camping and just discover the wild and nature of my dream country, which i already have inked in my skin :D. I'd like to keep it quite simple, also because i don't have a big budget and i know Norway is an expensive country. But i also like a warm bed and a cosy place, so we could share accomodations.
My journey isn't established yet. I just know i'll…
Has anyone got a reliable website to track weather / conditions up on the Trolltunga trail?
I was meant to be going to Fulufjallet in Sweden with some friends but they've pulled out last minute so I am considering flying over to Bergen for a couple of days hiking. My plan would be to land Friday, drive out, begin the hike, then camp and finish it on the Saturday before returning to Bergen.
I'm aware of the warnings of doing the trail at the end of September onwards, but am hoping this…
I will be travelling to Bergen from the 16th of December to the 20th of December. I was wondering if anyone could suggest a road route that would show me some nice scenic areas, or even just some hidden local gems? I am open to suggestions i don't mind joining a tour group, or driving myself.
Just a little about me that may help with suggestions is I'm a 25 yr old Female , travelling with 25 yr old Male- we are both open for adventure, and tend to be fast paced while travelling. We prefer…
Hi folks, I am arriving at the Oslo airport via JFK (NYC) at 5:30 AM on a Friday. I can't find any info on the transit time through border control but I'd like to get a train in Oslo to Bergen at 8:30 AM so I'm wondering how long it will take for a US citizen to get through the airport.
Is it feasible to land in Oslo at 5:30 AM and be at the train station in Oslo, ready to board a train at 8:00 AM?
Thanks for any info you can provide.
I am landing to Oslo the 15th of december, flying to Tromso the 16 th, doing a cruise from the 17th to 19th between Tromso and Kirkeness. I will stay the 19th and 20th at Kirkeness and then the 21st in the morning I 'm flying to Helsinki until the 23rd of december. Is there anybody who will be at one of the places during my trip ? If yes, i would be happy to meet you :)
I have made a video with some amazing drone footage from one of the hidden gems along the Southern coast of Norway, the island Hidra outside of Flekkefjord. In addition to the sheer beauty of the place, the video gives a good overview of the typical Norwegian fishing villages in the south:
Im heading to Norway on these dates. May i know if it is still possible to do hikes at the end of September?
and is it possible to see Northern Lights on these dates or is it too early? thanks!
I'm a 19 year old who has had dreams of travelling the world for a long long time, so where better to start than Norway. I want to finally get this underway by the start of next year. Only problem is I am not very well equipped for this, I've got the money but not the knowledge or equipment. So I'm hoping that other people exist out there who might help me get started and will come travel with me.
Hi, I am traveling with my boyfriend to Norway. We arrive in Olso November 19th and are staying for five or six days. We are hoping for a unique winter vacation with adventure activities such as ice fishing, dog sledding, ice hotel or igloo, seeing reindeer, snowmobiling, but most importantly Northern Lights and fjords. We have to start in Oslo as our flight lands there but are pretty flexible after that. Can anyone recommended an itinerary that will allow us to do the winter adventure…
