    • Road conditions (traffic and ice) in March

      Lofoten Jul 20, 2014 at 3:48 AM

      Just wondering if someone can provide advice about the road conditions that could be expected in late March. I drive on the left hand side of the road at home so feel a little uncertain about driving in Lofoten Islands. I would also be keen to have an understanding about how busy the roads are likely to be at that time of the year.

      Many thanks.

    • Transport from Olden Port to Briksdal Glacier. We are arriving on the 9th September 2014/

      Olden Jul 19, 2014 at 9:18 AM

      We will be in port from 8 am to 3pm and would like to go and see Briksdal Glacier. Have arranged a party of 12 adults and are looking to arrange transport to and from Glacier.
      I know that we have to walk to the Glacier and that it is about 40 - 45 minutes each way.
      Can you recommend transport options for us as I understand that the local bus does not run in September
      Thank you

    • Horseback riding near Trondheim

      Norway Jul 11, 2014 at 11:43 AM

      Hello!
      Me and my husband are going to be in Trondheim for about 4 days at the end of August.
      I just spent the last 8 hrs researching horseback riding trips in the area.
      Most I found were for 6-8 days, but I'm looking for 2-3 days or even a day trip in the mountains and lakes. It's been an extremely frustrating 8 hrs as I am sure there are ranches and farms in the 2-3 hr drive vicinity that offer horseback riding with a scenic view. I'm not looking for a family farm necessarily because we are both pretty experienced riders.

      If anyone knows of a good farm/ranch/riding lodge... Please help!

      Hello - I'll be spending the night in Honningsvag early next month. I would appreciate the name of what is considered the best restaurant. Is it the Corner Cafe ?, or are their others that are more impressive. I'm seeking some of the delicious local fish!

      Thank you,

      Stavanger to Oslo in 8 Nights. What do you think?

      Norway Jul 7, 2014 at 2:24 AM

      Hi all,

      I know that there are many posts like this one, but I am not confident about the plan for my holidays... I do not know if it is too ambitious, so I'd like to know your opinion about it.

      At mid-august (14th) my girlfriend and I are visiting Norway. Our flight lands in Stavanger and our flight home takes off from Oslo. We are way more interested in nature and stunning views than in cities (despite we'd also like to visit some small towns). We are spending 9 days/8 nights in Norway and we'll be moving by car.

      Obviously the following plan will depend on the weather and on our mood, but it’s our starting point.

      Day 1: Arrival at Stavanger (noon). We’ll rent the car and visit Stavanger.

      Day 2: From Stavanger to Odda. At morning we plan to visit the preikestolen and then head to odda.

      Day 3: Odda to Bergen. If the weather is Ok, we plan to do the Trollstunga walk and then drive to Bergen. We know it will be a bit tiring, but we can handle that.

      Day 4: Bergen to sogndal. Visit Bergen’s old town, and then drive to sogndal.

      Day 5: Sogndal to Olden/Styr. We’ll spend the day visiting sognefjorden / Jostedal

      Day 6: Olden/Styr to Lom. Maybe geirangerfjorden, jostedal or a bit of Jotunheimen

      Day 7: Lom to Lillehammer. We’ll spend the day at jotunheimen to then, late afternoon, head to Lillehammer (we don’t have much interest in that city, but it looks like a good place to overnight).

      Day 8: Lillehammer to Oslo. Maybe we’ll spend some time visiting something of Lillehammer, but the goal is to head to Oslo, to have some time to visit the city.

      Day 9: Oslo. Our flight leaves at 20.00 so we’ll have time to visit the city’s musts.

      I’d like to comment that I’ve already been in Oslo a few, but my girlfriend has not. Despite it is a pity we won’t have enough time to visit all the sights (Munch museum, opera, Vvigelan’s park, the castle, etc.), I think that the Natural wonders of Norway worth such lose.

      So, what do you think? Is it realistic? Anything important missing in the plan? Any suggestions?

      Thanks for your time!

      Cheers

      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.

    • Rooms in Lillestrom?

      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.
