I plan to visit Norway during easter vacations. My plan is to land in Oslo and stay for a day and then take a train next morning to Bergen. Then stay next two days in Bergen. Will there be any fjord trips worth taking during this time?
Hi! We plan to hike in the area Odda in August. Already bought the plane tickets. 25 people need a transfer from Bergen to Kvitno or Eikhamrane. Please tell me what may be possible. Can rent a vehicle? Many thanks!
Is the Fenicular open on New Years day and are there any short boat trips on New Years Day. If so, should we prebook. We are only there from New Years Eve lunchtime and leave on the 3rd. Any ideas to make this a wonderful trip please. Happy New Year

We are a group of 6 traveling to Bergen and are interested in the fjord tours. (Sognefjord) We have read about White Lady Tours and Norway in a Nutshell. A tour starting and ending in Bergen will be ideal. Which one is better - White Lady Tours or Norway in a Nutshell? Are there any other Fjord tour companies providing something cheaper?
I'm looking for half a day or a day tour from Bergen to see the fjords (25/6/13).
request is for my father (age 77) so he prefer a tour that is not so hard (not changing too much transportation, many walking etc.)
we found this:
but we would like to get more options...(somehow the booking there is not working)
i want to thank you in advance for every answer....appreciate it!
what is the best way to get to folgefonna from norway on the 10th of June 2013.bearing in mind that the official tour starts on the 24th. Thanks
what is the best way to travel from Bergen to Arendahl?
We are trying to book the train from Oslo to Bergen on June 9th .
The info is very poor and the online system won't take the booking request.
How should we book
We will be doing a Norway cruise in September 2013. What would you recommend seeing in Bergen in 1 day?
I visited Norway a year ago and purchased these adorable little troll dolls at a small gift shop in Bergen.
I lost them and want to buy new ones but can't seem to find them online.
I think the only place where they're sold are at the small gift shops (that cater to tourists), like this one
My problem is, I have no way of contacting these little gift shops (as none of them have any online website). I tried contacting the larger retail stores, but none of them carry this particular troll.
So I have a request, can someone in Norway get me the contact information for a small gift shop like the one pictured here.
I'd like to email them to ask them if they carry the troll doll that I'm looking for.
I am a woman of a "certain age" planning a solo trip to Scandinavia in May. I have travelled alone a lot and like to travel as inexpensively as I can, staying in B&Bs or old pensions, or sleep over on a train. I am happy with trains and planes but not automobiles (too expensive to do alone).
I'd like to be in either Bergen or Oslo for the 17th of May, Independence Day. Is doing the Oslo-Flam-Gudvangen-Bergen "nutshell" on my own possible? It looks like it would be, and cheaper than going on a tour.
I am also planning several days in Copenhagen, and perhaps a few in Stockholm. It seems like flying into any of them from the States is cheapest on Mondays and Wednesdays. I am limited more by my pocketbook than by time. I would expect to spend between two and three weeks altogether. This is almost certainly my only trip to Scandinavia.
My questions for you:
(1) do I need to buy train or plane tickets in the States, before I leave (I know I would for a Eurailpass but it looks like it might be cheaper to wait and buy local ones). I assume I'll need to make hotel reservations before I leave. and
(2) please critique/offer suggestions about my itinerary.
Any advice you can give would be gratefully received.
Will be visiting Bergen in the new year, looking to go skiing, recommend anywhere here?
Looking forward to the visit can't wait to try the nightlife too!
We'll be arriving in Bergen 25 july by ship (MSC MAGNIFICA). The ship stops will be Flam, Bergen, Stavanger, Oslo.
We are mainly interested in seeing as many fjords as possible and nice scenery in general and doing outdoor activities.
1) We have 8 hours to spend in Bergen. 8:00 -18:00. Could we combine a cruise in Bergen fjords and a tour in the city? A ho-ho bus maybe? A friend said that in Bergen there aren't deep fjord areas. Should we spend our money elsewhere in a cruise in another location with more spectacular fjords you think?
2) Any rafting centers there (for beginners)?
I'm going to visit Norway in late August and places that i want to go are the western fjord area and if time permits to go to Lofoten Islands too. (i have 6 days to be spent in this area)
What i have in mind is - take a flight into Bergen and then rent a car to drive around Bergen, Fjords, drive up north (coastal route) to Alesund, Molde and eventually Trondheim. Along the way i hope i could do Geirangerfjord and some other scenic places. Plan to do this in 2 days.
From there, take a (roundtrip) plane into BODO or straight to Lofoten for 2 days and then coming back to Trondheim.
From Trondheim, rent a car again to drive back to Bergen (preferably different route) - if possible do it in 1 day only. Otherwise, do it in two days too before leaving Bergen for Stockholm.
Do the above make sense ?
I'm plannig to join the parade in Bergen this year and I would really appreciate any help with details about the program.
Please give me a fast answer as... today is already 16th :))
All the best!
I would like some comments on Bergen Festival [ end of May into June ] . I am not a festival type person , and was wondering is Bergen full to bursting with festival tourists ?
what is the weather like in bergen in august+september would we need warm clothes that time of the year and is there a lot of places to visit in bergen as we will be ther for two days befor joining a cruse of the fjords
Which bus stop on the airport bus route is the nearest to get to the best western hordaheimen. How far is the walk from the stop to the hotel and is it flat terrain? We will have luggage..Thanks
My wife and myself are travelling on a Norwegian Fjords cuise on 4th May 2012 visiting Bergen Flam . Oslo, Geiranger.What kind of outdoor clothing do you suggest we wear. Many thanks.
If you want to go in another place outside Bergen,like Stalheim,what is the cheapest way to travel?
Train doesn't go everywhere so i suppose bus is the only cheap way right?
But are there routes from Bergen to other places outside Bergen?
I've been trying to figure out how to get from bergen to the nigard glacier for glacier hikes like this -> bfl.no/blue-ice-family-trip.....
From what i have read so far, it seems to me that to get to nigard glacier from bergen, i'll first have to find my way to Sogndal (by train or by plane) and then take a bus from sogndal to the glacier. Is this correct?
Also, is it possible to do this trip as a day trip from bergen?
My wife and I will be in Bergen arriving 29th March and leaving 2nd April, 2012. Will it be possible to join a day trip to the fiords within those dates. Do we have to make advance reservation or can we just walk in and buy when we are there. We will be staying at Best Western Hordaheimen.
