      Can anyone recommend a Hotel or B & B in Trofors, Norway for June 2015?? Thank you!

      Trofors Dec 7, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      Can anyone recommend a Hotel or B & B in Trofors, Norway for June 2015? Trofors must be a very small village in Nordland though, there is a train station there. I have looked at several hotel sites on line though, found nothing there. I am visiting Hattfjelldal, Nordland then looking at Trofors to catch a southbound 8:56 morning train. Any & all thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Chuck Ps. having a hotel can make this trip a workable, as traveling on to Geiranger to meet friends one day later.

      Bergen accomodation

      Hi...I am an Aussie who has never been to Scandinavia , so your replies would be appreciated...
      My mum and I will be arriving in bergen on the " Norway in a nutshell tour" not til next summer but planning the trip of a life time!
      How far is it to the city center from where we get off? Need to take a taxi in?
      We do love the hop on hop off bus idea and use the cable car up to the mountain...again another taxi?
      Not sure if we will stay 1 or 2 nights before we fly back to oslo but I assume another taxi required to hotel.

      Sorry so many silly questions!

    • Prices for left luggage in Bergen airport / luggage storage for several days

      Bergen Jun 1, 2014 at 4:02 AM

      I've seen a few questions related to short-term luggage storage in Bergen and am aware that the station has lockers for hire. However, I am hoping to leave my luggage somewhere for four days and travel with a smaller bag. If anyone can advise how much this is likely to cost at the airport, or if there is anywhere else in the centre that would store luggage for several days at a reasonable cost, I would appreciate it. I'm staying in three different places over four days so hotel storage is not really a possibility. Thanks in advance!

      This is our first trip to Norway. Other than "Norway in a Nutshell," where can we get travel info. for round trip to Lofthus from Bergen? My maiden name is Loftus but my Dad was from Ireland (viking descendant?). We would like to spend a couple of hours in the village without doing the entire fjord tour, unless it is advised to not miss it. I also want to take the Sognefjord tour. We are staying in Bergen the first week of August. Any information will be helpful. Thank you.

    • transport to/from Bergen, accommodation in Bergen

      Bergen May 27, 2014 at 12:15 PM

      My two sons and I are planning to rent bikes and cycle from Haugastol to Flam. Do you need to make reservations to rent bikes? At the Finse Lodge? Do you need to bring a sleeping bag? Can you have your luggage transported by train while you ride?
      Once in Flam we want to go by hurtigruter to Bergen. Do we need to make reservations for the boat?, We'd also like to go by boat from Bergen to Stavanger, are reservations required here too?
      Suggestions on best place to stay in Bergen for myself (55) and two sons (19 & 14). We are the type that really wants to immerse ourselves in Norwegian culture.
      Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
      Thank you, Lise

    • Overnight in Bergen to take bus to Stavanger

      Bergen May 20, 2014 at 4:35 PM

      We (2 adults, 1 young teen) will arrive from the Nutshell tour in Bergen at 10 pm Saturday and need to catch a bus to Stavanager at noon on Sunday. Is it ok to leave our (3) suitcases in the train station to pick up the next day since the bus station is next to the train, and do you know the locker cost? Also, how early do we need to get to the bus station to buy our tickets to Stavanger? I wish we had more time, but any suggested itinerary for the Sunday morning in Bergen is appreciated.

      Bergen to Stavanger by bus

      Bergen May 7, 2014 at 6:27 AM

      I am hoping to take a bus from Bergen to Stavanger at the end of July. I travelled with a friend a long time ago in a car from Bergen to Haugesund, and I remember it as a very interesting trip, going through tunnels and taking ferries between the various islands on the route. I imagine the last bit from Haugesund to Stavanger is probably just as interesting. But this time I won't have a car, so it will have to be on a bus.

      Does anyone know if this is practical, and if so, where I can book a bus? Or do I need to book it in Bergen? And how long does the journey take? Also any general guidance would be appreciated, for example one bus company may be better than another, or the buses may not run at weekends, that sort of thing. Any bus company websites would be useful too.
