      Car Rental Reservation Dependability?

      Norway Jan 26, 2015 at 6:51 AM

      I have a reservation I just booked for two days in late August and two different ports in far northern Norway. They didn't ask for my credit card to take the reservation - a large well known international car rental company. They sent me confirmation emails for each rental day: one in each port. I have noted that on those days car rental reservations are already almost fully booked. My concern is that when I get off the ship, if I'm half an hour late getting to the car rental office, the car I reserved will be gone. There will obviously be high demand. Has anyone had a problem like this? I pointed out my concern to the rental agent on the phone, and he still didn't want my credit card. I remain worried.

    • What do Norwegians (specifically, northern areas) wear during the winter ~ spring?

      Norway 8 hours ago

      I'm trying to plan a trip through Scandinavia when I graduate, and Norway seems to be posing a bit of an issue for me ...

      So I finish university December 2016 and was thinking of departing America maybe mid-March and staying in Europe until mid-May. My thought is for 2 months to go around, a little earlier or later isn't really that much of an issue for me, but most importantly, I really want to see the northern lights, and hopefully also manage my way to Lofoten, Svalbard, the mountains??. I know it'll definitely still be cold around this time in Norway (and definitely Svalbard) and was wondering what kind of clothing the average Norwegian wears?

      Down? Cashmere? Goose down? Wool? Lots of layers? Specific brands?
      I'm located in the NY area so the average winter jacket is ok, but I with my hopes to trek about ... and I was hoping to live in the mountains a few days but I realise that with the weather I'll be encountering, it may not be the best idea ...

      Maybe this is also a little off the mark, but are there specific times (month, time of the month) that gives the best chance to view northern lights? I heard something like too much snow is dense or something sorry I don't know know the science behind it, but it affects its appearance somehow?
      Places? I read all over Norway it's viewable, but best chances? Most nights? Norway is so expensive that I highly doubt I'll be able to spend many days just relaxing about, especially since I want to financially provide for everything.

      I'm also very in love with polar bears (or ice bears, as I know Norwegians call them) in Norway/Svalbard and was wondering how early out in the year should I plan on leaving for Europe for highest chance of seeing them? I'm not sure if I want to go on one of those 10-day cruises (pricey) specifically to seek them out, I'd just like to roam around and see them to their thing, polar bearing around. I read people never see polar bears in the summertime on those cruises, so I assume I need to go when it's still relatively cold? This is a different region, but hopefully someone might know? If not, I'll make another post int he Svalbard section a little later.

      Thank you so much for reading, and hopefully spending time to answer my many questions,

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

      by CSWARTZ1204 Online Now 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.

      Hi All,

      I plan to have some vacation in Geiranger for 1 or 2 days. Actually what I want to see is:
      - The great Trollstigen (north route from Geiranger to Andalsnes)
      - Beautiful Dalsnibba (south route to Grotli)
      - The gigantic rock Flydalsjuvet (south route)

      For the Trollstigen, I would like to use bus (The Golden Route). Is The Golden Route cover route from Geiranger to Andalsnes (not Andalsnes to Geiranger)? The problem is that I will go in 28 - 29 May 2008 and the Golden Route itself operate in June 2008. Does anyone can give me some alternative?

      For the Dalsnibba, is there any public transportation that I can use except Golden Route?

      For Flydalsjuvet, what public transportation that cover this route?

      Also, if I rent car, it have minimum 3 days car rental and it's so expensive. So I would like to have some pt or motorcycle.. Need help if anyone knows for motorcycle rental with minimum budget and not minimum 3 days.. Many thanks before
