      Norway Aug 24, 2015 at 9:06 PM

      Hi everyone!
      My husband and I plan to visit Norway in the month of November (6th -20th)with our 6 year old daughter.We intend to fly to Tromso,rent a car after staying a day in the city, drive to lofoten islands and drive back to Tromso to catch our flight back to Amsterdam.

      My questions are..
      1.Are there any beautiful towns between Tromso and the islands that we can stop at because we dont really want to drive ard 6/7 hrs straight.thought staying a day somewhere in between..

      2. Read in reviews that there is an option to take a ferry to the lofoten islands.Is it possible to get to most of the islands (all the way to Å) on road only?We want to try to be on the road always and not have to get onto a ferry.

      3.Will there be any toll on the road that we are required to pay along the way?

      4.Is there anywhere else beautiful anyone can reccommend us on where to head?We ve gt 2 weeks and the only thing we have now is to explore the Lofoten Islands.Will 2 weeks in the islands be enough?

      5. Any place to recommend on where to stay in lofoten?For now we have Å,Henningsvaer,Reine in our places- to- stay list.

      6. What is the weather usually like in november?We have driven in Iceland before.Silly ques but Will the weather be as unpredictable and constantly changing like those of Iceland's ?Or is it different?

      8 Day Tour Fjors of Norway - Mail Travel London

      Norway Aug 13, 2015 at 1:23 AM

      I subscribe to Mail Travel, but live in Australia. Would appreciate comments of this 8 day tour incl return flights from London, Tour conducted by Newmarket Holidays.

      Day 1

      Fly to Bergen, meet your tour manager and transfer by coach through the spectacular scenery to the idyllic village of Balestrand. Settle in to your room, and acquaint yourself with the beautiful surroundings, before enjoying your first dinner in the hotel.

      Day 2

      Today, get to know Balestrand. Since the late 19th Century, Sognefjord has welcomed visitors searching for clear mountain air and enchanting scenery, and whenever you go, the area's natural beauty will enchant you, as will the warmth of the welcome virtually everywhere you go.

      Day 3

      Your first included excursion is an unforgettable day trip by boat to the historic trading port of Bergen. Join us to discover a city of cobbled streets and medieval houses with a colourful harbour and open-air fish market. Stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.

      Day 4

      The Jostedal Glacier, mainland Europe's largest ice-flow, is a mesmerising sight that dominates the northern landscape beyond the fjords. Our optional visit here is a great opportunity to see the glacier itself and to explore the informative Norwegian Glacier Museum.

      Day 5

      Our optional Norway in a Nutshell excursion is an unmissable tour of one of the world's most scenic regions. The day includes a ride on the world-famous Flamsbana line from Myrdal to Flam, a remarkable 20km descent down the steep-sided valley, and a spectacular two-hour cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.

      Day 6

      Spend today's optional excursion exploring beautiful Sognefjord and the fascinating Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger, with its fine collection of fishing and 'ice' boats that reflect Norway's age-old interaction with the sea and the fjords.

      Day 7

      Spend your final day in Balestrand relaxing as you make the very most of the village and its surroundings. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel at the end of an unforgettable week in one of the world's most beautiful corners.

      Day 8

      Transfer back to Bergen airport, and check in for your flight home.

      What's Included
      •Seven nights' four-star half-board accommodation at the Kvikne's Hotel in Balestrand, on Sognefjord
      •Return flights to Bergen
      •Comfortable, air-conditioned coach travel and transfers
      •Fully escorted by a friendly, experienced tour manager

      Cost: Approx 850 English Pounds, cheaper earlier months ,

      Note no mention of the Cost of optional tours, which I think are essential to enjoy the holiday.

      Anyone had experience with these coys.

      Appreciate all advice and comments

      Mike

      Kongsberg hotels,lodges, whatever

      Kongsberg Jul 5, 2014 at 11:16 AM

      Did some searches on hotels around Kongsberg. Pretty shocking. Even if the visit date was March 2015, one hotel said nothing available. Others said "only two available". I'm starting to think maybe this is a travel agency problem. Is Kongsberg so popular the local places are booked so many months in advance? Is it mostly business travelers since Kongsberg seems to be a high tech center?

      Visiting ancestral home

      Kongsberg Jul 5, 2014 at 12:12 AM

      My grandfather had a farm outside Kongsberg. I've been informed that the parish in which the farm was located is now part of Kongsberg. Not sure what the distance is, but if I fly to Oslo, catch a train or bus to Kongsberg, and then want to reach this parish within Kongsberg, is that a bus trip, taxi trip, or some other way to get there? I'm assuming if I take this trip, I'd probably book in some place in Kongsberg. The parish was, I hear, called Sandsvaer. I know my father's birth is recorded in a church there, information I got from a non-relative to stopped by and looked it up.

      Where To Stay

      Kongsberg Oct 22, 2011 at 10:50 PM

      Various sites online list different options for booking a room around Kongsberg. The only real hits Ive made are on 4 hotels. But Norway tourist info and other Norway-related places speak of Guest Houses, Cottages, Apartments, and other options. Yet when I tried booking sites, they kept finding zero rooms available. Which makes me think maybe I'm just not using the right method of attack. I suppose traditional hotel bookings are a mere matter of online travel services. But how are the other options found?

      Way to Sansva, er

      Buskerud Oct 8, 2011 at 6:59 PM

      My father was born in Sandsvaer (I should have looked up the spelling, but I hope I got it close enough for people familar with the fylke to recognize what I meant). His father had a farm there, and there's some confusion about what the farm was called. I thought since his name was Mork, the farm was too. Anyway, on my bucket list is to stand on the farm where my father lived as an infant. Maybe even get a picture of me with the current owners. I figure the way to go is fly to Oslo and then get whatever transportation goes from there to Buskerud. Perhaps get a reservation to stay a day or two. I guess my question is how best to do all this. Love to take my wife along, but she is dead set against crossing the ocean for anything that is short. She just has too much arranging to do when she leaves home for anywhere, so I guess I'd be on my own. If I could book a tour that let me make a side trip, that's another option because I think riding a tour ship into a fjord would be awesome (yeh, I'm in my 60's, but I can still be awestruck). My mother said she had ancestors who migrated from Sognefjord to America in the 19th century, so I wouldn't mind at all visiting that one.

      Hi everyone
      My husband lives across in Tranby and when I go to visit him, I usually get on the Torp Expressen and get off at Drammen at the Shell Garage on Kjellstad. Going home, I get on at the Statoil Garage on Kjellstad.

      However, I have noticed that the Torp Expressen bus stop has changed for this service.. Seems to be at a place called Bangelokka (sorry about the spelling - my keyboard cannot type the letter properly)

      Can anyone tell me where this stop is, so that I can get my husband to pick me up at the right place.. He doesn't know where it is and when I do an internet search, it brings nothing up (probably because i'm not typing the work correctly).

      Hi there

      I have already posted a thread on the Oslo page to get information about accommodation in Drammen or nearby. My fellow V.T ers have been very helpful, so thank you.

      Moving on from this, I wondered if anyone could give me any information about who to contact to rent a flat in Drammen/Asker/Lier, along with an indication of how much the rent would be on a 1 bedroom flat. My fiance is due to move across to start work in Tranby on 18th March and needs something as soon as possible, not too far from Tranby.

      Maybe a 1 bedroom flat or a guest house initially, until he can find something to rent. This would likely be a long term let, for at least 1 year.

      I do not know where to start looking and cannot find anything on the internet in English.

      Can anyone out there help me?

      What is the best way to get to Geilo from Torp airport without a car? Is it possible to get to Geilo without taking a train to Oslo?

      Secondly, what is the easiest way to get to Oslo from Geilo?

      We are trying to plan a short ski trip to Geilo, and will be travelling with a child. Thanks so much!

      Hi all, In december I will be moving to Drammen from the UK to be with my English partner who has a job in drammen. I have a four year old daughter and although very excited I am also apprehensive, not knowing what to expect. I would love for anyone in Drammen to get in touch with me and maybe give me a few tips on how to survive.
      Many Thanks
