      Norway Aug 6, 2015 at 9:33 PM

      Hello, I definitey need help! We will be visiting Norway for 2 weeks at the end of september. We are planning 1 week in Lofoten and 1 week in the fjords. We are going in norway for hiking and outdoors activities, we will rent a car and would like to have max 2-3 different hotels for 1 week. Around which city will we have the more activities to do at the end of september, Alesund or Bergen? Will the leaves still be in the trees at that time of year? Are we better to go in Lofoten first? Is 1 week in Lofoten too much? Thank you for your help!!!

      i need help with my 15days itinerary from Tromso to Lofoten pls..

      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?

      Heres thanking everyone in advance for helping us out..Your help would be greatly appreciated...

      Thank you Dabs for your detail transportation information from Olden Cruise terminal to Briksdal. Taking the public bus is so cheap and seems easy. Five of us are thinking of doing the same but are concern about the availability. Is there only one bus at each departure time?
      We will be on Princess Caribbean deaprting Southampton on August 29 and docking at Stavanger, Olden, Hellesylt, Geiranger and Bergen. In Geiranger, the bus tours to MOUNT DALSNIBBA & FLYDALS GORGE are fully booked. Does anyone have alternate economical suggestions? We appreciate any tips shared.

      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

      neighborhoods/schools in Kristiansand

      by geigen Online Now Apr 22, 2005 at 8:54 AM

      Hello,

      We are moving to Kristiansand for ten months and my 8 year old son will attend school. I have read that there have been tensions between immigrants and Norwegians in Kristiansand. My husbands employer has suggested that my son attend a Mottakskolen for immigrant children in Kristiansand. The kid is a blond American. Would he be accepted at such a school? Would he not be accepted at an ordinary Norwegians school (he does not speak Norwegian)? Are there any neighborhood or schools we should avoid?

      Any help would be appreciated!

      Thank you,
