Just wondering if someone can provide advice about the road conditions that could be expected in late March. I drive on the left hand side of the road at home so feel a little uncertain about driving in Lofoten Islands. I would also be keen to have an understanding about how busy the roads are likely to be at that time of the year.
We will be in port from 8 am to 3pm and would like to go and see Briksdal Glacier. Have arranged a party of 12 adults and are looking to arrange transport to and from Glacier.
I know that we have to walk to the Glacier and that it is about 40 - 45 minutes each way.
Can you recommend transport options for us as I understand that the local bus does not run in September
Me and my husband are going to be in Trondheim for about 4 days at the end of August.
I just spent the last 8 hrs researching horseback riding trips in the area.
Most I found were for 6-8 days, but I'm looking for 2-3 days or even a day trip in the mountains and lakes. It's been an extremely frustrating 8 hrs as I am sure there are ranches and farms in the 2-3 hr drive vicinity that offer horseback riding with a scenic view. I'm not looking for a family farm necessarily because we are both pretty experienced riders.
If anyone knows of a good farm/ranch/riding lodge... Please help!
Hello - I'll be spending the night in Honningsvag early next month. I would appreciate the name of what is considered the best restaurant. Is it the Corner Cafe ?, or are their others that are more impressive. I'm seeking some of the delicious local fish!

Coming in around 1100 on a Sunday and staying in the main part of the city of Bergen. Best and/or cheapest (not necessarily the same) way to get between the two for 2 with carry-on luggage?
Leaving around 1100 (flight time) from Bergen on a Friday. Same questions......
Planning well ahead (1 year) for early June 2015 trip to Norway. Working North thru Fjords.
Can someone tell me if there is a bus transport to Alesund from any of the locations in the Sognefjord , either Sogndal, Balestrand, Fjaerland, or other location
I know that there are many posts like this one, but I am not confident about the plan for my holidays... I do not know if it is too ambitious, so I'd like to know your opinion about it.
At mid-august (14th) my girlfriend and I are visiting Norway. Our flight lands in Stavanger and our flight home takes off from Oslo. We are way more interested in nature and stunning views than in cities (despite we'd also like to visit some small towns). We are spending 9 days/8 nights in Norway and we'll be moving by car.
Obviously the following plan will depend on the weather and on our mood, but it’s our starting point.
Day 1: Arrival at Stavanger (noon). We’ll rent the car and visit Stavanger.
Day 2: From Stavanger to Odda. At morning we plan to visit the preikestolen and then head to odda.
Day 3: Odda to Bergen. If the weather is Ok, we plan to do the Trollstunga walk and then drive to Bergen. We know it will be a bit tiring, but we can handle that.
Day 4: Bergen to sogndal. Visit Bergen’s old town, and then drive to sogndal.
Day 5: Sogndal to Olden/Styr. We’ll spend the day visiting sognefjorden / Jostedal
Day 6: Olden/Styr to Lom. Maybe geirangerfjorden, jostedal or a bit of Jotunheimen
Day 7: Lom to Lillehammer. We’ll spend the day at jotunheimen to then, late afternoon, head to Lillehammer (we don’t have much interest in that city, but it looks like a good place to overnight).
Day 8: Lillehammer to Oslo. Maybe we’ll spend some time visiting something of Lillehammer, but the goal is to head to Oslo, to have some time to visit the city.
Day 9: Oslo. Our flight leaves at 20.00 so we’ll have time to visit the city’s musts.
I’d like to comment that I’ve already been in Oslo a few, but my girlfriend has not. Despite it is a pity we won’t have enough time to visit all the sights (Munch museum, opera, Vvigelan’s park, the castle, etc.), I think that the Natural wonders of Norway worth such lose.
So, what do you think? Is it realistic? Anything important missing in the plan? Any suggestions?
Thanks for your time!
Can someone help me find out where to buy 55 shot glasses with a Nord Kap mark on?
Thank you in advance!
