      Bergen for 2 days

      Bergen Apr 29, 2015 at 10:02 PM

      We are 9 of a family, including 1 Sr. Citizen 74 years, and 4 children (11, 12, 14, 18 year old).

      Arrive in Bergen by flight from Stockholm on 1st June morning.

      We are staying at the Scandic Strand hotel. Should we proceed for some sight seeing from the airport itself, before hotel check-in? How?

      Do we book minibus / van with English speaking driver / Guide?

      What do we do and see for the 2 days, 1st and 2nd June?

      We will proceed for the Norway in a Nutshell experience on 3rd June morning. Reach Oslo at night.

      How do we go about this (after booking online)?

      I know that these are a lot of questions, but please do help.

      Thanks in advance.

      Is it Kjelvik or Honnigsvag as or Cruise line says and

      Kjelvik Apr 12, 2015 at 3:48 PM

      Because, Virtual Tourist doesn't list Honnigsvag as a city/town what is here?. Are there local tour companies or City tour buses to book? What is recommended to see in the area or just a walk through the city/town? The cruise line offers tours, though we certainly want to consider other local options. All comments & suggestions are greatly appreciated.

      Cruise to Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen how much Norwegian should we have?

      Norway Apr 30, 2015 at 4:34 PM

      What is your wild Guesstimate/guess how much Norwegian Krone/per person we should have for these 6 cruise stops; Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen in June? We will have credit cards for most of the significant purchases. I would think that the city tour buses and the like would take credit cards or not? I know it is difficult to answer though, all input and comments are greatly appreciated. We will likely be buying tourist items and stopping in a few pubs. I would think restaurants will take credit cards. When I have seen similar postings in the past, I thought how could anyone answer this question because how can estimate someones spending habits but, all VT comments are appreciated and possibly you have had this same experience. I don't want to insult locals by trying to use US dollars or do they take Euros?

      Hello.
      My friend and i'll have to go and study for 5 days in Norway, and the course is in Falck Nutec, Fjellstrand. We also have to find a cheap place to sleep there. Falck Nutec gave us one list for the hotel but after i checked up , we have to take the boat and also the bus. I wonder if it has some other place that we could stay and skip the boat thing or long travelling to the class in the morning.

      Please help us.

      Hello,

      I'm planning to spend 1-2 months in Lillestrom (or the places close to Lillestrom), starting from July. My days are flexible. Do you have any idea on where to search for a house in Lillestrom for that period? I would really appreciate your help -also, if you have any links for houses in Lillestrom will be a great help. I've so far sent e-mails to the local agencies but they don't rent short term..Also, if you know anybody renting a room or a floor in his/her house, I'm interested.

      Thanks in advance.
