      Hiking in Oslo

      Oslo Sep 30, 2015 at 8:34 AM

      I'm in Oslo for another 5 days and I really want to explore some amazing scenery. I have been up to the ski jump and walked all around that area and I have been to the closer island from Oslo. I really want to see more of the same thing but not sure where to go.. I have a week travel pass so I can move around easily - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    • Stavanger - Preikestolen-Kjearag - Trolltunga

      Stavanger Sep 17, 2015 at 3:15 AM

      Hi, maybe somebody could help me... Cuz I really dont have a clue.

      I'm planing to travel these places on Octomber 1-2-3-4.
      I will fly to Stavanger early morning and be there at 10:00, Im planing to rent a car so I can easly move to these places.
      My 1 day, cuz im landing so early I though that I could visit Preikestolen. And after to stay near in any hotel so I can next day ( day2 ) hike to Kjearag, after hiking the Kjearag, maybe to drive to Trolltunga and stay over there nearby. Day 3, Hike to Trolltunga, and after to check in a hotel. Day 4 drive back to Stavanger and catch the flight.

      I know that the sesson is closed, but is there still people doing this hikes on the beginning of Octomber ? Am I realistic on my planing schedule ?? Ocfourse if the weater is bad, we will not hike to Trolltunga, I have read that its 10-11 hours hiking and is really hard. The hiking to Kjearag is 6-8 h, and Prekestolen 4-6 h.

      Do you have any tips, something I should consider ? Are the ferries between expensive ?? Have anybody done this ??

    • Overnight bus from Bodo to Tromso?

      Norway Sep 11, 2015 at 11:21 PM

      Hi! I'll be in Norway in March of 2016, and I'm planning on taking the overnight train from Oslo to Trondheim, and daytime train from Trondheim to Bodo.

      I plan to ferry to Lofoten Islands for a few days, and then set off for Tromso.

      I know there are only buses from Bodo to Tromso with a transfer in Narvik, but I was wondering if there were overnight buses? I looked around for times or if someone did anything similar but I wasn't quite sure, or the responses were relatively old and potentially out of date. I am also going in March which is a bit wintery so I'm not even sure if bus schedules run as often.

      Does anyone know? Thank you for reading!


      **also wanted to note that this is a piece of my personal trip for graduating uni so I have a lot of time to spare-- time is not the issue, I'm looking for scenic, cheap methods, which is why I didn't look to fly, though if there are airlines that dip lower than the bus costs, I'd prefer to fly ha ha ahah it's 161$ for a flight that takes me back to oslo, overlays for nearly 24 hours and then flies me to tromso ... not worth it

    • What to do in winter

      by cathy9510usa Online Now Nov 21, 2010 at 4:20 AM


      I'm trying to decide whether to take the northbound or the southbound Hurtigruten trip in February or March. The northbound trio seems to have a 3 hour stopover in Bodo. What does the city have to offer, at least to passengers from the ship who have to walk from the quay?

      Thanks very much for your help.

      Little yellow balls?

      by leics Online Now Jul 27, 2010 at 2:58 PM

      I'm asking this on behalf of friends who are campervanning around Europe and are in Bodø at the moment.

      They keep seeing 'little yellow balls on short rods along the roadside. They are about the size of a ping pong ball and the rod is about 6 inches (around 15cm) tall. They are irregular distances apart, positioned sometimes low down in the grass, sometimes high up on rocks, sometimes near the edge of a road and sometimes a couple of metres away.'

      They would love to know what they are for and would be grateful for an explanation, if you have one. And so would I. :-)

      Thanks in advance.

    • Need to stay "online" while travel to Bodo, Norway - SIM-card and WiFi

      by Amalker Online Now Jun 13, 2010 at 2:31 AM

      Hi Friends!
      I'll travel to Bodo this August for two weeks. Wow!
      I need a local phone card while my journey. Most calls will be made to Belarus and to norwegian operator OneCall (based on Telenor network). My telefon is also support WIFI, so i can use VOIP. What Prepaid card would be recommended? Is any special rules for selling phonecard for foreign travellers?
      What about WIFI (free and chargeable) zones in Bodo (and Oslo)? I think i need about 100 minutes calls or and 100 Mb via WIFI or 3G if i call Voip?

      Any ideas?
