      By train/public transport Tromso to Geiranger in two days visiting in Trofors by Hattfjelldal?

      Norway Aug 30, 2014 at 3:50 PM

      Besides enjoying the beauty and culture of Norway, I am hoping to make a visit to where my gg grandfather Bendigt Mathias Johansen was born in 1846. And am looking to fit it into a cruise that stops in Tromso and in two days later in Geiranger. I would like, in those two days travel and stop and visit in Trofors and possibly by taxi or bus to Hattfjelldal, Nordland where he was born for a visit? I have looked on the internet and realize that Norway is a vast country and further I was not able to determine if this is possible. Thus I am looking to VT, ers knowledgeable input. All and any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated, as this will be my first time in Norway. I think fitting this first visit into a cruise is possibly the best.

      Food options and cost

      Norway Aug 24, 2014 at 5:10 AM

      We are gearing up for our trip to Oslo and Bergen next weekend. The question that I have is, how easy is to get vegetarian food (pizza and pasta are all we need and probably salad sometime). So many forum comments about food being costlier in Norway - any comments. What are the restaurant or vegetarian eatery options on way from Oslo to Flam and then Bergen (we are renting the car and driving)? Thanks!

    • Hiking for three days in late September, in Kjerag-Preikestolen area

      Rogaland Aug 27, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I'm planing to travel to the Lysefjord region in late September this year, and would like to visit the main two attractions (as I understand) of the region - Kjerag and Preikestolen. I hike a lot and like just to camp outside.
      Unfortunately I can not find enough information on line about the area for a "less civilized" tourism :)

      The questions that concern me most are:
      1. Is it allowed to camp in a non camping designated area in Norway? If so, are there recommended sites for camping? (preferably natural sites)

      2. Considering that I can not cover the distance between Preikestolen and Kjerag in three days by foot. What is the best way to get from one site to another?

      3. How cold and how wet is the weather in the area in the last week of September? (for spending two nights outdoors)

      Thanks in advance for the answers!

    • nice places

      Norway Aug 26, 2014 at 12:41 PM

      hello everone,

      I would like to go to Norway next holiday and I've searched a bit on the internet for some great places. But I thought just ask ik right here. So my queastion is, do some of you guys know some great places in Norway which aren't very touristic. I don't like that (very busy and expensive). However thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.

      Driving Oslo to Flam to Bergen / Volcano in Iceland

      Norway Aug 26, 2014 at 6:49 AM

      I have asked few questions earlier regarding my trip and thanks for those who posted the answers. I have few additional questions. Google maps give 4 1/2 drive from Oslo to Flam, but Michellin maps (as some websites suggested) gives longer. I wanted to know the realistic driving time. Also if I prefer route 7 will that be comfortable to drive instead of E16? Route 7 is saving me lot of driving time. How do I know if routes are closed - any website to check. Flam to Bergen is given as less than 3 hours in Google. I also have a question on Volcano in Iceland, if it throws ash, is it something that I need to worry during my trip? How was the experience last time in 2010? Thanks!

      neighborhoods/schools in Kristiansand

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


      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,

      I was in Kristiansand about a week ago and when I looked over the side of the ship I was on I could see lots of jellyfish swimming about. Is this a common problem in the sea around that area?
