      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...

      Olden Aug 14, 2015 at 8:37 AM

      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.
      Thank You.

      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

    • Real North Cape

      by ministercbc Online Now Jun 2, 2014 at 8:18 PM

      I'm seeking information on the hike to the real North Cape, about 9 km off of E69. We are coming in on a cruise, arriving at 8 a.m., getting a rental car at 8:30, and I'm guessing we could be at trail head, parking area by 9:15. Is it realistic to make the hike from there in 2.5 hours, and 3 hours on the return to the car, back to car say by 2:45? Can you get further down the trail in a car to drop off hikers, shortening the hike by a mile or two? answer to email

      Hello! I'll be in northern Finland for a week. I'm thinking about visiting the North Cape. But with public transportation and 1 night at a hostel, I would spend 200€ for 2 days. I'm thinking it's way to expensive and I'm not sure if I should go... What do you think? I'd just like to hear a few opinions...

      I will be traveling to Norway at the end of June and want to hike to the most northern point if Knivskjellodden. My question is what's the best way to get there from Bergen?

      1) Should we fly to Hammerfest and then take a ferry to Honningsvåg?
      2) Should we fly to Honningsvåg directly?
      3) Once in Honningsvåg or anywhere else on the north cape, how do we actually get to the trailhead?
      4) If by bus, is there a website we can access to make reservation?
      5) How many days should we allow?

      Thank you so much,

    • How to Get Nordkapp from Rovaniemi,or Finnish Lapland

      by BirisFlamencoTriana Online Now Aug 8, 2006 at 7:42 PM

      I am planning my visit to Scandinavia, (I´m leaving on next Friday!). I will start in the south of Sweden (Sverige!), then will go to Finland, and after that, I will travel to the north, with the idea of visiting first Finnish Lapland and from there getting to NordKapp and Lofoten islands, before travelling south in the west coast.

      So, to sum up, I will be in north of Finland, (probably Rovaniemi, or Kemi) when I have to get Nordkapp-taking into account that I wont have/use a car.

      I would appreciate a lot any info with regard to this question; I'm also lost about accommodation in the area; actually, I`ve just discovered its not so easy to find cheap places, b&b, hostels, or just places to sleep in the area.

      Thanks so much for your help!

    • Taking a bike to Nordkapp

      by kirandulas Online Now Jul 17, 2004 at 3:08 PM

      I'm starting to plan a cycle ride starting in May next year which should take me from Nordkapp to Sicily (or maybe Gibraltar; not decided yet). Can anyone give any advice on the quickest/easiest way to get from say Oslo to Nordkapp with a bike? Due to limited time, I sadly can't afford to cycle all the way up there, but I expect I'll probably have to do at least the last bit. I have come across some information that says bikes can be taken on buses, but on the other hand I've read that about other countries as well where it's simply not true. Any help very welcome!
