      Hiking in Oslo

      Oslo Sep 30, 2015 at 8:34 AM

      I'm in Oslo for another 5 days and I really want to explore some amazing scenery. I have been up to the ski jump and walked all around that area and I have been to the closer island from Oslo. I really want to see more of the same thing but not sure where to go.. I have a week travel pass so I can move around easily - any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    • Stavanger - Preikestolen-Kjearag - Trolltunga

      Stavanger Sep 17, 2015 at 3:15 AM

      Hi, maybe somebody could help me... Cuz I really dont have a clue.

      I'm planing to travel these places on Octomber 1-2-3-4.
      I will fly to Stavanger early morning and be there at 10:00, Im planing to rent a car so I can easly move to these places.
      My 1 day, cuz im landing so early I though that I could visit Preikestolen. And after to stay near in any hotel so I can next day ( day2 ) hike to Kjearag, after hiking the Kjearag, maybe to drive to Trolltunga and stay over there nearby. Day 3, Hike to Trolltunga, and after to check in a hotel. Day 4 drive back to Stavanger and catch the flight.

      I know that the sesson is closed, but is there still people doing this hikes on the beginning of Octomber ? Am I realistic on my planing schedule ?? Ocfourse if the weater is bad, we will not hike to Trolltunga, I have read that its 10-11 hours hiking and is really hard. The hiking to Kjearag is 6-8 h, and Prekestolen 4-6 h.

      Do you have any tips, something I should consider ? Are the ferries between expensive ?? Have anybody done this ??

      Heading to Oslo this weekend, anyone else going or going to be there?

      Oslo Yesterday

      Me and my mates, 4 of us in total, are heading over to Oslo from the UK this Friday for three days. Just wondering if anyone else is going at the same time as us or will be there? Also, is there anything we should definitely do whilst we're out there? Our ages are between 21 and 22

    • Overnight bus from Bodo to Tromso?

      Norway Sep 11, 2015 at 11:21 PM

      Hi! I'll be in Norway in March of 2016, and I'm planning on taking the overnight train from Oslo to Trondheim, and daytime train from Trondheim to Bodo.

      I plan to ferry to Lofoten Islands for a few days, and then set off for Tromso.

      I know there are only buses from Bodo to Tromso with a transfer in Narvik, but I was wondering if there were overnight buses? I looked around for times or if someone did anything similar but I wasn't quite sure, or the responses were relatively old and potentially out of date. I am also going in March which is a bit wintery so I'm not even sure if bus schedules run as often.

      Does anyone know? Thank you for reading!


      **also wanted to note that this is a piece of my personal trip for graduating uni so I have a lot of time to spare-- time is not the issue, I'm looking for scenic, cheap methods, which is why I didn't look to fly, though if there are airlines that dip lower than the bus costs, I'd prefer to fly ha ha ahah it's 161$ for a flight that takes me back to oslo, overlays for nearly 24 hours and then flies me to tromso ... not worth it

    • Norwegian Cruise Excursions tips requests

      by NikPhua Online Now Aug 14, 2015 at 8:37 AM

      Thank you Dabs for your detail transportation information from Olden Cruise terminal to Briksdal. Taking the public bus is so cheap and seems easy. Five of us are thinking of doing the same but are concern about the availability. Is there only one bus at each departure time?
      We will be on Princess Caribbean deaprting Southampton on August 29 and docking at Stavanger, Olden, Hellesylt, Geiranger and Bergen. In Geiranger, the bus tours to MOUNT DALSNIBBA & FLYDALS GORGE are fully booked. Does anyone have alternate economical suggestions? We appreciate any tips shared.
      Thank You.

    • tram to glacier

      by tfjone Online Now Aug 3, 2014 at 1:40 PM

      Is there a tram and what is the cost for it now? We have some people with mobility issues and we are taking a mini van to the site but some of us are walking and the others are not sure if they will be able to get near the site.

    • Transport from Olden Port to Briksdal Glacier. We are arriving on the 9th September 2014/

      by hotlady29 Online Now Jul 19, 2014 at 9:18 AM

      We will be in port from 8 am to 3pm and would like to go and see Briksdal Glacier. Have arranged a party of 12 adults and are looking to arrange transport to and from Glacier.
      I know that we have to walk to the Glacier and that it is about 40 - 45 minutes each way.
      Can you recommend transport options for us as I understand that the local bus does not run in September
      Thank you

    • Olden and Briksdal Glacier

      by tonydori Online Now May 8, 2008 at 3:58 PM

      Hello, next month we are going on a cruise and one of the stops is Olden. I am looking at the possibility of organising our own excursion to see Briksdal Glacier (not to walk on it) I imagine there must be some kind of local transportation from Olden to the Glacier but so far I have been unsuccesful in finding buses, car rentals, etc. Does anybody know if there are buses that connect these two points and if so provide info. Thank you very much.
