Njord Tour

Hi All,

A friend and I are going to be in Norway late june/early july and are looking to do an overnight kayaking tour of the fjords leaving from Flam on the 2nd of July 2015. Only problem is, they won't organise the tour for us without a group of minimum 4 people.

So I was just wanting to know if anyone would be in Norway at this time and would be interested in joining?
Below is the link for the tour we would like to do, it looks absolutely amazing and it would be such a shame to miss out.

Norway in May 2015 - Road Trip, Camping and Hiking

Greetings!

I saw a similar post to this one based around a trip in April, but hopefully things will be a little different by May.

My partner and I are in our late 20s and have booked a trip to Norway for 33 days from May 3rd-June 5th. We are planning a road trip to try and take in as much of Norway as possible in the month that we have.

I would just like a little input on the logistics of this trip from the kind folks on this forum.

Our very rough itinerary:
May 4th-5th: Hire car in Oslo

Norway in April 2015 - weather, roads, hiking?

Hey TT - My fiancee and I are planning a trip through Norway April 6 - April 30, but need some help figuring out if our plans will work considering weather conditions. We are planning on renting a car and doing a BIG triangle from Oslo to Bergen to Trondheim and back to Oslo, camping and hiking along the way. Questions:

Will the snow be melted enough during any of this time period for decent hiking, between Bergen and Trondheim specifically (ie, Trolltunga, Slogen, etc)? Or will the tops of…

Looking for authentic experience

Hi guys,

I am traveling to Norway and when I travel, I like to get an authentic experience. So, I also want to get in touch with the locals. I would like to know what your way of getting in touch with the locals is or what do you think is the best way?

I have seen offers where you can dine with Norwegian families. Would you pay for that experience? Do you think it is still authentic?

Thank you so much for your answers.

Cheers,
Dayanand

Suggestions for a cheap 1 week trip at the end of March

Hello,

I'd like to go away for a week at the end of March for some skiing and hiking, if it is possible to do at this time of year. I've already been skiing once this year so I'm not too bothered about spending the whole week skiing. I've looked at the prices for skiing in Oslo and staying there with the Oslo discount card and it doesn' t look too bad at all. But there are so many national parks in Norway that I'm not sure if I'm missing out on something amazing elsewhere. Say I spend 3 days in…
