I'll be travelling to Narvik in mid to late February, and I was wondering if there were cruises going at those times? Also is it easy to get around without a car, as we'll be taking a train from Kiruna.
Hello. I am planning to visit Brønnøysund in a few days in the future. What is the easiest way to get there? What one can do and see in this town? Greetings.
Hello, it seems impossible to travel from Svolvaer to Abisko in one day with public transport,
I can't find any connection. Trains and busses arrive too late in Narvik to have the right connection.
Any tips? hitchhiking? Did I miss something? To be precise: it's about the 5th of march 2014.
We are planning to go from Svolvaer tot Abisko in one day, but we can't find a bus or train that will takes us from Narvik to Abisko. The bus will get us from Svolvaer to Narvik at 14.10, but according to the Swedish railways-site there are no connecting trains/buses. Anybody?
When is the Sea Parrot Festival 2014 and what is it called in Norvegian? Cheers!

How long will the boat be there ?
what do you think ?
will I enjoy it in winter ?
We are 2 friends going to Lofoten in early October and would like to rent a scooter to travel around the island. Has anyone experience in renting a scooter in Lofoten?

I don't have the international driving licence, I only have Vietnamse driving license for 50cc-175cc scooter. is it acceptable?
another thing, is it dangerous to drive a scooter in Lofoten?
Thanks much for your help.

HI, our family is traveling to Lofoten from the US in January. We are in search of seeing the Northern Lights and would like to know if it is possible to rent a car and drive around Lofoten in January. Also any suggestions as to what to do and what not to miss in the island. Where to stay? and how many days should we allow considering there won't be too much light.
Am trying to get to Narvik by bus from Bodo - am unable to find a timetable. Likewise we will be moving on to Tromso, five days later, by bus. Timetables would be useful
Do I need a high level of (or specialist) insurance for hill walking in Lofoten please?
I would like to take a trip from Svolvaer to Stamsund on 6 Oct 2013 by bus route 18-741 and 18-767 according to route schedule. But, according to the seaching system in this web nri.websrv01.reiseinfo.no/nr..., no service is available on that day. Please advice the availability of the services on that day and would you advice any other alternatives way of public transport on that day. Thanks
Can you buy a Tromso city 3 day pass in Narvik or do you have to get the passes in Tromso? I won't be getting into Tromso during operating hours so I was hoping I could buy one in Narvik before catching the 100 but to Tromso. If I can't buy a pass in Narvik do you know of a place that will sell bus passes on weekends? Single rides are such a rip off.
Where is the supermarket called Bunnpris?And, where is the way to climb the hill to see the full view of the beach?
I am doing a photo trip for Northern Lights Mar 5-10 /13 and am trying to figure out a packing list. Temps on line show around freezing, but not sure what wind, rain/snow and dark of night might be like. I'm from Canada so have lots of heavy winter gear, but my question is how much will I need. Heavy winter boots, or hiking boots and warm socks? Wind/rain overpants and long underwear, or insulated snowmobile type pants? Tips from anyone who has been there in March would be helpful, or especially anyone who has done a Northern lights photo trip?
I plan to visit Hemnesberget in August 2013. My ansestory is from Laukhella. Can I visit there? I assume Laukhella is privat property. Also, my ansestory is buried near there. How could I go about locating their graves?
Hi I was planning to catch the Hurtiguten from Bodo to Harstad in May 2013, arriving in Harstad at 06.45. I then planned to travel by bus to Narvik, via the airport, to catch the Stockholm train. I have just found out that the train has been rescheduled from the afternoon to 11.38 in the morning. The only buses I can find from Harstad miss this train by about 15 mins. Is there any other way of getting from Harstad to Narvik?
Would anyone know the bus numbers (I think it's 5 and 14), frequency and fare from Bodo harbour to the airport. I can't make sense of 177nordland.no.
There is a Rimi supermarket across from the Radisson in which we can get supplies. We are on the 19:05 flight to Narvik, which doesnt get in till 19:45, then on the 09:35 train out in the morning. I think the Narvik supermarket by the station doesnt open till 09:00, and everything is shut by 20:00. so we should get supplies in Bodo.
If you have any typical Norewgian picnic food suggestions, or other nice food stores in Bodo to recommend (preferably in the station to harbour area), I'd be very grateful.
Hi, does anyone know if we can drive to the moose safari around bodoe? Im only staying 3 nights in bodoe, what is the best way to catch the best way to catch the aurora? Thanks in advance for your help..
Is there a place in Gravdal where I can rent a car for the day of June 27?
We arrive on the Hurtigruten and leave from the airport. Any suggestions for how we arrange a rental car? Is there any public transportation between boat terminal and air terminal?
Hi! We arrive in Bodo by plane on July 17 at 9:55. I see there is a ferry to Moskenes at 11:15. Is that enough time to catch this ferry? What is the fastest way to get there? Thank you very much!!! :)
I’m planning to make a trip to Lofoten this june and I have a few questions which I need help on.
First of all, I’m planning to head over to Lofton by taking a ferry from bodo. I’ll be trying get around by bus, bikes or just walking. (I won’t be renting a car since I don’t have a driver’s license.)
1. Is Reine accessible and a good place to stay? Or would it be better to stay in other villages like Henningsvaer or Å?
2. Due to a budget constraint, I would prefer to rent a room in a guesthouse or an apartment rather than a Rorbuer. Are there any other similar accommodations in Reine like this? --> lofoten-info.no/hotellet/eng...
3. Am I able to go for fishing trips like this --> datadesign.ws/x-Hellvaag/Eng... in Reine?
Hi to all,
we plan to go to Narvik,originating in Abisko,Sweden in spring 2013,most probably in late Feb./March:)
Can anyone help how to connect with the Hurtigruten ships from there?
We like to cruise finally to Bodo,with the Hurtigruten ships,where we continue to travel further on to Oslo,with the plane;)
We do appreciate your help,thanks!!
Happy journeys to all,
What would a native of Narvik, or Norway in general, put in a picnic basket ?. We arrive late in Narvik on the bus from Fauske, and then leave on the train in the morning, so I am hoping to locate a supermarket in Narvik who I can pay to deliver some food for us to the campsite, which looks like the grooviest place to spend a summer night (they have chalets).
Hi, I am organising this
http://gcerc.wordpress.com/route/. We plan to get the evening bus from Fauske up to Narvik and stay at the camp site chalets.
There will probably be about 15 +/- 5 people in the group. I am concerned that if the numbers are nearer 20 we might not all fit on this bus as we arent even getting on at the start point, and this isnt a part of the world where hanging onto the roof is generally approved of ;).
Does anyone know if
1) reservations can be made on the bus
2) somewhere in Bodo or Fauske we can hire a small bus or several people carriers.
My friends and I are planning to travel from Svolvaer to Harstad/Narvik airport by bus but I can't seem to find information about it.
Can anybody give us more information about how we should do it please?
And the cost, bus service name etc.
Thanks so much in advance! :))
Is it possible to travel by boat down coast of Norway commencing near Narvik (only because we are currently in Lulea and can easily get to Narvik via train)for a few days? Would love to see fiiords but haven't got a lot of time. Or would we be better accessing the coast further south and catching a boat there? We have eurail passes for train travel.
On our last trip to Norway, we did not have a car while we visited the Lofoten Islands. This limited our movement. We stayed outside Svolvaer and had to take a taxi to our hotel and then were lucky that our hotel had bicycles to borrow so we could go out and eat our meals.
So on an upcoming trip to the islands (August this year), we want to get a car. Where is the best place to rent a car? Can we rent one in Svolvaer (we'd prefer to use that as our gateway to the islands, taking the express boat from Bodo). Or we may fly to Harstad/Narvik Airport Evenes. Can we get a car there? A third option is what visitnorway.com says: "If you drive, you can take the car ferry from Bodø across to Moskenes, Værøy or Røst. Or you can drive further north of Bodø, to Skutvik, and take the car ferry across to Skrova or Svolvær."
What's recommended - what's the best place to get a car to get around the islands?
In July I am on a cruise that tenders in to Gravdal until mid afternoon.
I'd like to visit Nusfjord and Sund. Can this be done or do I have to use the ships cruise?
Is there any local transport or other sights that could be visited in 4/6 hours
Thank you for your help
