    • Road conditions (traffic and ice) in March

      Lofoten Jul 20, 2014 at 3:48 AM

      Just wondering if someone can provide advice about the road conditions that could be expected in late March. I drive on the left hand side of the road at home so feel a little uncertain about driving in Lofoten Islands. I would also be keen to have an understanding about how busy the roads are likely to be at that time of the year.

      Many thanks.

    • Round trip or one-way?

      Lofoten Jun 22, 2014 at 4:15 AM

      So, we're doing a bike tour in Lofoten in August. Is it worth making a round trip (Which would be about 400 km) along the southern coasts first and the northern coasts getting back? Or are we better off getting from Moskenes to Svolvaer in one go and then use the days we have left for something else around Bodo, or for going further west of Svolvaer?

      Hello,

      we are two Italian tourists travelling to Svolvaer on Thursday the 17th in order to get our rented car at Europcar for that day.

      We'll arrive at Evenes at 10:35 with the flight from Oslo, we kindly ask you how we can reach Svolvaer.

      Thank you very much for your answer.

      Bus pass in Tromso Norway

      Narvik Jul 18, 2013 at 8:13 PM

      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.
