    • Vuorji mountain and Lievnasjaure lake

      Finnmark May 10, 2015 at 3:08 AM

      My name is Nikki and I live in Amsterdam. I am planning a hiking trip this summer to northern Finnmark in Norway.

      I read this book that really inspired me to go over there. I don't know if you have heard about it before, it is really popular in Holland. I believe in English it is called Beyond Sleep, by W.F. Hermans. It is about a scholar going on a fieldtrip in that area.

      He starts in Skoganvarre, then heads West towards the Vuorji mountain and the Lievnasjaure lake. Then he goes south to Karasjok and I believe he follows a famous marked trail with small stones too.

      I am looking for people with some experience in this area who might have information about these places, the hiking and camping itself and maybe if you know some local guides that can help me.

      Cruise to Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen how much Norwegian should we have?

      Norway Apr 30, 2015 at 4:34 PM

      What is your wild Guesstimate/guess how much Norwegian Krone/per person we should have for these 6 cruise stops; Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen in June? We will have credit cards for most of the significant purchases. I would think that the city tour buses and the like would take credit cards or not? I know it is difficult to answer though, all input and comments are greatly appreciated. We will likely be buying tourist items and stopping in a few pubs. I would think restaurants will take credit cards. When I have seen similar postings in the past, I thought how could anyone answer this question because how can estimate someones spending habits but, all VT comments are appreciated and possibly you have had this same experience. I don't want to insult locals by trying to use US dollars or do they take Euros?

      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

      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?

I understand that Monday the 16th is also a holiday in Norway and need to know if the shops will be closed on these two days(for essential groceries, milk, bread, etc)? Would be grateful for a reply as soon as possible as we are leaving by car from England early on Friday morning. I'm hoping to learn a little Norwegian on the journey (!) and in the meantime, can only say "Tak".

      Hi all I have just returned from three weeks in Drammen, and wow! I love the place. OK it's possibly not thought as the most beautiful place in Norway but when you walk up through the mist to the top of the hills it equalls anywhere else I have ever seen. The people are amazing, the most helpful friendly kind group I have met. I was quite upset when I had to come home, but in only two weeks I will be back in Norway to start my new life. Thanks to everyone that replied to my first post.

      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
