      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.

      Train from Trofos to Trondheim, staying overnight in Trondheim, then to Geiranger is this doable?

      Norway Oct 19, 2014 at 11:34 AM

      We want to travel from Trofos to Trondheim by train staying overnight in Trondheim, then to Dombås and our question, is there public transportation Dombås to Geiranger? Or is there a better city to use to get to Geiranger? I have looked at the Norwegian train schedule (/ and the first part to Dombås seems fine. All comments and input are greatly appreciated! Note, I am an experienced traveler though, have never been to Norway before and know very little about this vast Country.

    • Norway during october and november

      Norway Oct 14, 2014 at 10:38 AM


      I'm thinking about going to Norway next week, november 23 and spent about 12 or 14 days there. There are two things that I would love to see: Fjords and the northern lights.

      So, probably I'm going to arrive in Oslo and will stay there for 2 nights. I thought about going to Bergen by train and stay there for 2 or 3 nights, then back to Oslo to take a flight to Tromso and stay there for about 3 or 4 nights (i know that we need time and luck to see the northern lights). I have also 3 more nights that I could go, maybe, to Stockholm or try something at the north of Norway.

      Is this a nice trip to take in around these days? I really want some "nature travel" and I really enjoy a cold weather. I'm a young lonely traveller, so I can take almost any kind of trip.

      What you guys think about it?

      By train/public transport Tromso to Geiranger in two days visiting in Trofors by Hattfjelldal?

      Norway Aug 30, 2014 at 3:50 PM

      Besides enjoying the beauty and culture of Norway, I am hoping to make a visit to where my gg grandfather Bendigt Mathias Johansen was born in 1846. And am looking to fit it into a cruise that stops in Tromso and in two days later in Geiranger. I would like, in those two days travel and stop and visit in Trofors and possibly by taxi or bus to Hattfjelldal, Nordland where he was born for a visit? I have looked on the internet and realize that Norway is a vast country and further I was not able to determine if this is possible. Thus I am looking to VT, ers knowledgeable input. All and any comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated, as this will be my first time in Norway. I think fitting this first visit into a cruise is possibly the best.

    • Hiking for three days in late September, in Kjerag-Preikestolen area

      Rogaland Aug 27, 2014 at 12:23 PM

      Hello everyone,

      I'm planing to travel to the Lysefjord region in late September this year, and would like to visit the main two attractions (as I understand) of the region - Kjerag and Preikestolen. I hike a lot and like just to camp outside.
      Unfortunately I can not find enough information on line about the area for a "less civilized" tourism :)

      The questions that concern me most are:
      1. Is it allowed to camp in a non camping designated area in Norway? If so, are there recommended sites for camping? (preferably natural sites)

      2. Considering that I can not cover the distance between Preikestolen and Kjerag in three days by foot. What is the best way to get from one site to another?

      3. How cold and how wet is the weather in the area in the last week of September? (for spending two nights outdoors)

      Thanks in advance for the answers!

      Driving Oslo to Flam to Bergen / Volcano in Iceland

      Norway Aug 26, 2014 at 6:49 AM

      I have asked few questions earlier regarding my trip and thanks for those who posted the answers. I have few additional questions. Google maps give 4 1/2 drive from Oslo to Flam, but Michellin maps (as some websites suggested) gives longer. I wanted to know the realistic driving time. Also if I prefer route 7 will that be comfortable to drive instead of E16? Route 7 is saving me lot of driving time. How do I know if routes are closed - any website to check. Flam to Bergen is given as less than 3 hours in Google. I also have a question on Volcano in Iceland, if it throws ash, is it something that I need to worry during my trip? How was the experience last time in 2010? Thanks!

      Food options and cost

      Norway Aug 24, 2014 at 5:10 AM

      We are gearing up for our trip to Oslo and Bergen next weekend. The question that I have is, how easy is to get vegetarian food (pizza and pasta are all we need and probably salad sometime). So many forum comments about food being costlier in Norway - any comments. What are the restaurant or vegetarian eatery options on way from Oslo to Flam and then Bergen (we are renting the car and driving)? Thanks!

    • Gas for backpackers in Oslo this Sunday

      Oslo Aug 12, 2014 at 10:41 PM

      We arrive in Oslo (Gardermoen) on Sunday (17.08) at 14:00 and depart by bus to Vintertun (Odda) on the same day at 22:30. Then we will have an eight-day trek through the mountains.
      I did a stupid thing: I did not realize that the shops in Norway are closed on Sundays.
      For cooking we need to be one or two gas cylinders Primus Powergas 450 gram (screw camping gas, epi-gas):

      Is it possible to buy the gas in Gardermoen's shops (that open Sunday)?
      Is it possible to buy the gas in the center of Oslo on Sunday? I used to read that only one retail chain in open on Sunday - Bunnpris. These stores sell the gas?

      Travel from Oslo - questions

      Oslo Aug 8, 2014 at 9:26 AM

      I was thinking of renting a car from one of the Oslo airports and drive down to Flam rather than taking train. Having 2 kids, this will give the comfort and flexibility of travel. I wanted to know how is the highway experience going to be and are there rest areas and gas stations enough on the way? My normal hotel websites are not showing many accomodation preferences, are there any other reliable hotel options, websites to look at. Ok once I reach Flam - are there any tour maps that will show me where should I lead to in Flam - attractions etc. My plan is then to drive from Flam next day to Bergen before taking a flight back to London.
