We have decided to go in Norway, next july and just start our preparation of trip. The autotour will be something like: Oslo, Stavanger, Bergen, Andalsnes, Trondheim, Oslo.
At the moment, the car is rent, first and last nights of hotels also.
We would like to know if it is absolutely necessary to book all the nights or if we can find hotels, cabins, B&B directly ?
The details are on our website...
Thanks by advance for your help
A friend and I are hoping for some advice regarding our journey into western Sweden. We would, at minimum, like to see Bergen, Stavanger, hike Pulpit Rock, and experience the majesty of the wondrous fjords along the way. We are hoping to get around by bus/train, so that we can enjoy the scenery.
Looking through previous posts, we understand that May would have been a better time to hike, but our dates can not be helped. No Trollstongue, alas.
We will be starting in Oslo, where…
I will be visting Norway shortly with my wife, my 10 year old daughter and my 7 year old son.
We will fly into Bergen on May 7 and fly out of Stavenger on May 12 (both early morning flights), so we will have almost 5 full days to explore.
We love nature, wildlife, scenic drives, train/ boat rides, kayaking, hiking. Also strolling in pretty cities and towns. We enjoy getting to know the local culture, food, beer, etc.
We dislike crowds, noise, packaged tours, shopping (as in shopping…
I have a holiday to Oslo planned with 4 friends in July (Sat-Thurs). We have got flights and hotel sorted, but really want to make the most of our time in the city and country. None of us have been to Norway before. We want a nice mix of activities from sightseeing and culture to more active stuff. We would be interested in seeing Oslofjord, so what would you recommend the best ways to do that are? We are willing to travel out of Oslo for day trips, but we do have a hotel booked for all 5…
Arriving in Oslo from USA on June 2nd and should be at my hotel before 12 noon. Will be on my own and plan on walking from hotel (Radisson Blu Scandinavia) to Opera House, then on to Akershus Fortress, then to Aker Brygge neighborhood, and back to the hotel. Figure to take around 5 - 6 hours with stops at each destination to explore and enjoy. Wanting to know from locals or those familiar if this seems doable, and if the Aker Brygge area is worth the extra walking and less time at the other…
My husband-to-be and I will spend 6 days in Norway as part of our honeymoon. I've been reading several posts and now I'm a little bit overwhelmed. Our intention is to explore Norway's countryside, both idillic nature spots and fairy-tale towns. I'm thinking on 2 options and would love your feedback. We've been in Oslo recently so would only fly-there from Stockholm but open to different ideas.
Option 1) Oslo - Jotunheimen - Lustrafjord - Flam - Bergen (by car - not experienced drivers)
My husband and I will spend some days in Norway and are thinking about driving between Oslo - Jotunheimen - Lustrafjord - Flam - Bergen. However, we don't have much experience driving in the countryside, specially in altitude. Is it easy and safe or should be avoid it completely? Also heard renting cars in Norway can be very expensive so trying to consider all aspects before making the call. Thanks much!
Hi, I'm heading to Norway for a measly 3-day trip late in May and have a couple of questions. I've read through the country forum and everyone says how the Norway in a Nutshell itinerary is really worth it, but I'm worried that I won't enjoy it since I have a flight that lands in Oslo in the middle of the night and then would have to catch the train the next day at 6.25AM followed by an entire day of travelling. So my question (which might seem silly to some) is: Is doing the itinerary…
I'm meeting my parents in Norway in late June. Among other things, we will be spending 6 nights in the middle like this:
1, 2, 3 - Sogndalfjord area
4 - Geiranger
5 - Alesund
6 - Trondheim
We will have a car, and my 70 year old parents, while capable, are not into (longer) hiking, so we will spend our time driving and taking ferries to see the landscape, as well as short hikes. The time for the Geiranger area would amount to leaving Solvorn (by Sogndalfjord) in the morning and driving to…
