    • Private car rental (Harstadt)

      Norway Yesterday

      Dear all, I am planning a trip in northern Norway this summer. I have heard that there are locals, usually the owners of car repair garages, that rent out used cars for about half the price of the big agencies. I would be really interested to do that but I cannot find anything on the internet. If you have already experienced this type of rental or know people who rent their car in the surroundings of Harstadt, please let me know. Thank you for you help. Making my trip a little bit cheaper would not hurt :)

      we are two Italian tourists travelling to Svolvaer on Thursday the 17th in order to get our rented car at Europcar for that day.
      Unfortunately we saw, just few hours ago, on the 17th the bus lines to Svolvaer are not working on those days.
      We'll arrive at Evenes at 10:35 with the flight from Oslo, we kindly ask you how we can reach Svolvaer.

    • How to arrange a hike on a glacier from various ports? How to travel from Olden to Hellesytt

      Geiranger Apr 11, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      We will be traveling to western Norway from May 17-May 25th.
      Our ports are Skjolden,Flam,Olden,Alesund and Stavanger.

      I have booked Ferry passage to Gudvangen from Flam to see the Naeroyfjord. we will return by bus and hopefully take the Flam rail to Mydal and back to Flam

      I booked a cruise through the Stavanger Archipelago into the Lysefjord.

      I am wondering if I should try to go to find our way to Hellesytt so we can cruise Geiranger. is this possible from Olden? we will only be in port from 8-5

      We would also like the opportunity to have a guided tour on a glacier and or kayak on a glacial lake. Perhaps from our stop in Skjolden (Nigard/Jostedal glacier) or in Olden (Briksdal Glacier) The cruise ship offers on trips to only view the glacier.

      This might limit my opportunity to travel to Geiranger. Perhaps next trip? So much to see and experience.

      Any suggestions.


    • Experienced advice needed

      Norway Apr 5, 2014 at 9:18 AM

      We are spending a couple of weeks in Scandinavia but only have a very short time in Norway at the end. We really want to experience the western fjords which means a day/night trip on NIN from Oslo and back again. My question is this: we have a choice to go as far as Voss or Bergen but we're mainly interested in seeing the fjords and the towns don't matter. I realize Bergen is far more charming than Voss but our time is so limited that if we can see the same natural wonders in Voss would it make sense to skip Bergen?

      Or should we go all the way to Bergen?

      Cost of taxi

      Norway Apr 9, 2014 at 5:53 PM

      We are arriving by cruise ship in Skjolden at 4pm on May 19. We would like to take a taxi from the port to the Urnes stave church. The manager of the church said that it was about 30km from the port. My question is how expensive would it be to take a taxi to the church. I ask because I've heard that everything is very expensive in Norway (compared to North America's standard) and I don't want to commit to something that may be out of my price range.

      If anyone has been to the it a difficult ride?

      Thank you very much for any information!!

      Which city for a weekend away

      Norway Apr 5, 2014 at 9:02 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm currently researching a weekend in Norway (from London) and am having trouble choosing a city and am actually a bit overwhelmed with the options available. Do you have any recommendations as to the best place to visit? I have never been to Norway and would like to see some fjords and wonder around cobblestone streets, people watch etc. I will be on my own.

      I have found the "Norway in a Nutshell" tours which have confused me. They also seem full on which I don't mind but want to be as efficient as possible. Is it necessary to do this or can I base myself in Bergen or similar and skip the travel elements.

      Any advice is gratefully received.

      Thanks! Natalie

      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.

      itinerary help needed!

      by briegull Online Now Jan 13, 2013 at 1:13 PM

      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.

      Hi all!

      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)?

      Driving BERGEN - TRONDHEIM

      by JoeRizal Online Now Jun 8, 2012 at 8:12 PM

      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 ?
