    • Vuorji mountain and Lievnasjaure lake

      Finnmark May 10, 2015 at 3:08 AM

      My name is Nikki and I live in Amsterdam. I am planning a hiking trip this summer to northern Finnmark in Norway.

      I read this book that really inspired me to go over there. I don't know if you have heard about it before, it is really popular in Holland. I believe in English it is called Beyond Sleep, by W.F. Hermans. It is about a scholar going on a fieldtrip in that area.

      He starts in Skoganvarre, then heads West towards the Vuorji mountain and the Lievnasjaure lake. Then he goes south to Karasjok and I believe he follows a famous marked trail with small stones too.

      I am looking for people with some experience in this area who might have information about these places, the hiking and camping itself and maybe if you know some local guides that can help me.

      Cruise to Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen how much Norwegian should we have?

      Norway Apr 30, 2015 at 4:34 PM

      What is your wild Guesstimate/guess how much Norwegian Krone/per person we should have for these 6 cruise stops; Alesund, Honnigsvag, Tromso, Geiranger, Olden & Bergen in June? We will have credit cards for most of the significant purchases. I would think that the city tour buses and the like would take credit cards or not? I know it is difficult to answer though, all input and comments are greatly appreciated. We will likely be buying tourist items and stopping in a few pubs. I would think restaurants will take credit cards. When I have seen similar postings in the past, I thought how could anyone answer this question because how can estimate someones spending habits but, all VT comments are appreciated and possibly you have had this same experience. I don't want to insult locals by trying to use US dollars or do they take Euros?

      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.

      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.
