Hello, looking for suggestions for a trip to Norway in Sept. I'll be flying in and out of oslo. Im mostly interested in mountains, fjords, glaciers. Etc. I don't mind cold, I spent 2 months in iceland in December and January. I travel cheap but not homeless gypsy punk hipster style. I want to see Lofoten for sure. Trying to decide between flying and also going to Svalbard, or road tripping and seeing fjords etc on the way. Thoughts?
I plan to take the Geirangerfjord Fjord Cruise on 8th October 2016. It is here that I need your suggestion.
I observe from the website rutebok.no (link: http://rutebok.no/nriiis/Default.aspx?Language=e) that there is a bus (Route No 250) which starts from 11:00 AM from Ålesund Rutebilstasjon and reaches Hellesylt at 1:50 PM. Then as per the website there is a cruise from Hellesylt Ferjekai at 2:00 PM which reaches Geiranger ferjekai at 3:05 PM.
However, when I visit the website…
Usually I'd try and research this a bit more but I'm travelling (camping) with not much internet access.
I'm planning to visit southern Norway for 2 weeks, probably going home around 30th September, or early October, depending on how I fit the trip around a music festival in Kristiansand 23-24 September, starting in Oslo and flying home from Bergen (or maybe the other way around).
I like the outdoors and would like to walk up to Hornelen (I've read one route takes 5-6 hours return…
I know... There won't be too many restaurants and bars that are open on these days, unfortunately. However, does anyone have recommendations for a solo traveler in Oslo during Christmas? I'll be flying to New York City on Christmas Day in the afternoon. Except for spending a few hours walking in the Nordmarka Forest on December 24, I don't have a single clue on how to survive these days in Oslo. I've heard about this organization that welcomes people who don't have anyone to celebrate the…
I along with 4 other 25 year old guys will be flying into Oslo from New York on September 2nd and staying in Norway until the 11th. Our plan is to rent an SUV and travel from Oslo to Bergen and then head North. We will be camping and staying in hotels along the way. Does anyone have any recommendations for the best areas to base out of for outdoors activities such as hiking, kayaking, and seeing glaciers? Also, does anyone have specific trails or mountains that they recommend that are…
Thanks for previous suggestions. We have now decided on 4trips during our short stay in Svalbard .
1. Night trip around Longyearbyen (after one of the full day trips)
2. Full day trip to Pyramiden
3. Full day hike to Foxfanna
4. Evening kayak trip on Adventfjorden (on the evening we arrive in Svalbard)
We plan to spend the morning of our last day looking around Longyearbyen.
Wildlife.no and Spitsbergen travel seem to be the two main companies to book with. Is there any difference (times and…
I (31yrs) and my wife (30yrs) , along with my Parents (60yrs) (Total 4 people) are planning to visit norway for our vacation next week.(Starting July 15th 2016)
We all love to travel. We would love to see norway with different means of transport to get around & see...like Air , Road , Ferry & rail. We are not much into hiking & camping but do enjoy places of interest on our way. We are vegetarians and would be preferring to Rent apartments wherever we go, considering there might not…
Is there any public / private shared transport options to travel from Geiranger to Trollstigen (onwards to Andalsnes) in September?
The available tourist bus closes by Aug 21. Is it likely to be extended?
The local trip to Trollstigen from Andalsnes seems to leave before the first bus from Geiranger (through Sjholt or Alesund) reaches Andalsnes.
Thanks for your reply.
