      Norway Jun 6, 2015 at 2:24 PM

      Can anyone tell me if there is bus service from Geiranger to Lom (Jotunheimen), I can not seem to find such. Also is there bus/shuttle service to lodgings on west side of Jotunheimen from Lom , specifically the Boverdalen Vandrerhjeim hostel. Is there access into Park from Hostel area if one does not have car. Also planning to continue via bus to Sogndal- i see that this is possible? I know i can access Lom via bus from Oppdal , but in planning my itinerary getting to from Geiranger is ideal.

      Flåm train - best time of a day to take it

      Norway Jun 23, 2015 at 6:12 AM

      We are trying to book the Flåm train ride (beginning of September) but would appreciate some specific help:
      Q1: We will drive around touring the Fjord district, including have the view from top of the Geirangerfjord and the Sognefjord. Is the Flåm train ride still necessary (i.e., will we see something unique that we cannot see otherwise)?

      Q2: The reviews we read were, the train ride would be fantastic (IF the answer to Q1 above is yes) ONLY IF a) not many tourists overcrowded the train; and b) not raining.
      Is there 'micro climate' thing at the train ride area, which means, will it be more likely to rain in the morning or afternoon (understanding that this may not be possible to predict)? Basically the question is what would be the best time to ride the train avoiding tourist crowds and avoid rain?

      Thanks in advance!

Also, do I need to have reservations at hotels in advance or will there be plenty of availability of hotels during that time frame? I prefer not making reservations in advance so I can just tour and drive and stop when I get ready. I have a rental car. Thanks in advance for any advice.

      Rent an automatic car from Alesund; going through Oslo airport custom

      Norway Jun 22, 2015 at 6:35 AM

      We planned to rent an automatic car from Alesund and drive all the way via fjord and back to Bergen (and makes numerous stops on the way). However, a few rental companies we searched, renting an automatic car will NOT be possible (we do not know how to drive a standard shift car).

      Anyone had the experience renting an automatic car from Alesund (airport or in town), how was it arranged?

      Unfortunately, we have already bought the ticket from USA to Alesund (via Oslo). When arrive Oslo, do we take out the luggage, go through the customer, then put the luggage back to the flight to Alesund, OR go through the custom at the Alesund? If the latter is possible, we may consider give up the last leg (if changing tickets is too costly)?

      Any quick advice would be highly appreciated!

    • GPS Navigation / POI warning legal ?

      Norway May 30, 2015 at 11:26 PM

      Dear Forum members from Norway,
      I hope somebody from Norway can give me an answer to below question.

      Actual Navigation System have ( for example Garmin / TOMTOM ) a build in POI warning wich include warnings for speed cameras as well.

      I tryed several sources to find a proved answer if the use of these poi-warnings are legal with norway law, or not.

      For example the German ADAC says "no is not" the Austriam ÖAMC says "yes - you can" and the manufacurers of the navigation systems have only "maybe, and maybe not" as an answer.

      Hopefully there is somebody from Norway who can give me an actual valid answer based on actual norwegian law on this question:

      Is it legal to use navigation systems with buildt in POI warnings for speed cameras in Norway ????

      Northern Lights in Narvik

      Narvik Oct 21, 2014 at 1:20 PM

      I'm sure this question has been asked and answered many times, but I can't find the answers in the forum, so apologies if it has been answered before.

      What is the best time and the best place to see the Northern Lights in Europe during winter?

      I have seen Narvik suggested, but other people suggest Kiruna in Sweden because it is further inland and therefore more likely to get clear conditions rather than cloudy coastal weather. Or maybe Narvik doesn't get cloudy in the middle of winter?

      And are there any statistics for the northern lights, similar to statistics for weather, like 20% chance of seeing the them during January nights, etc?

      And what is the best month of year to go?

      Thanks for any info or suggestions.

      Ferry from Bodo to Moskenes then taxi

      Moskenes Aug 6, 2014 at 5:48 PM

      Has anyone taken the ferry from Bodo to Moskenes? Had any experience getting a taxi for around 10 KM from the ferry terminal? I have checked that there are two big tunnels, so walking is out of the question. The other option is renting a car in Bodo - but don't see a way to get insurance as to not risk approx. $1500 USD if an accident. So - is a taxi a viable choice? I know there is a bus, but understand they take hours to arrive.
