    • how to get to svolvaer from evenes on thursday the 17(holiday)

      Narvik Apr 12, 2014 at 12:26 PM

      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.
      Unfortunately we saw, just few hours ago, on the 17th the bus lines to Svolvaer are not working on those days.
      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.

      Annalisa and Francesco

    • How to arrange a hike on a glacier from various ports? How to travel from Olden to Hellesytt

      Geiranger Apr 11, 2014 at 4:12 PM

      We will be traveling to western Norway from May 17-May 25th.
      Our ports are Skjolden,Flam,Olden,Alesund and Stavanger.

      I have booked Ferry passage to Gudvangen from Flam to see the Naeroyfjord. we will return by bus and hopefully take the Flam rail to Mydal and back to Flam

      I booked a cruise through the Stavanger Archipelago into the Lysefjord.

      I am wondering if I should try to go to find our way to Hellesytt so we can cruise Geiranger. is this possible from Olden? we will only be in port from 8-5

      We would also like the opportunity to have a guided tour on a glacier and or kayak on a glacial lake. Perhaps from our stop in Skjolden (Nigard/Jostedal glacier) or in Olden (Briksdal Glacier) The cruise ship offers on trips to only view the glacier.

      This might limit my opportunity to travel to Geiranger. Perhaps next trip? So much to see and experience.

      Any suggestions.

      Thanks,

    • Experienced advice needed

      Norway Apr 5, 2014 at 9:18 AM

      We are spending a couple of weeks in Scandinavia but only have a very short time in Norway at the end. We really want to experience the western fjords which means a day/night trip on NIN from Oslo and back again. My question is this: we have a choice to go as far as Voss or Bergen but we're mainly interested in seeing the fjords and the towns don't matter. I realize Bergen is far more charming than Voss but our time is so limited that if we can see the same natural wonders in Voss would it make sense to skip Bergen?

      Or should we go all the way to Bergen?

      -by Train : Bergen-Oslo-end.

      1. How far is Rica Arctic Hotel Kirkenes and Rica Bryggen Hotel Honningsvag from the Bus station going to/from Kirkenes and Honningsvag..
      2. How to book a seat reservation for my journey from Kirkenes-Honningsvag-Alta-Tromso.
      3. How much is the ticket fare of each leg.
      3. Do you have the time table.

      Planning a short trip to Norway

      Norway Mar 18, 2014 at 11:00 AM

      Hey guys, I am a bit stumped as to how best make use of the limited time in Norway. I arrive in Oslo late on the 27th June, I plan to stay the night and leave around midday heading by train to Bergen. Probably just enough to walk around the main streets. I fly out of Bergen on the 1st July

      Originally I was going to take a train direct to Bergen and then use this as a base, hiring a car to see some of the fjords a little further away. I have been reading around and is it worth breaking my my journey from Oslo to Bergen and maybe staying a night mid point? Or am I better stocking with my original plan. Also what should I try to see in my limited time?

      Cost of taxi

      Norway Apr 9, 2014 at 5:53 PM

      We are arriving by cruise ship in Skjolden at 4pm on May 19. We would like to take a taxi from the port to the Urnes stave church. The manager of the church said that it was about 30km from the port. My question is how expensive would it be to take a taxi to the church. I ask because I've heard that everything is very expensive in Norway (compared to North America's standard) and I don't want to commit to something that may be out of my price range.

      If anyone has been to the church..is it a difficult ride?

      Thank you very much for any information!!

      Which city for a weekend away

      Norway Apr 5, 2014 at 9:02 AM

      Hi all,

      I'm currently researching a weekend in Norway (from London) and am having trouble choosing a city and am actually a bit overwhelmed with the options available. Do you have any recommendations as to the best place to visit? I have never been to Norway and would like to see some fjords and wonder around cobblestone streets, people watch etc. I will be on my own.

      I have found the "Norway in a Nutshell" tours which have confused me. They also seem full on which I don't mind but want to be as efficient as possible. Is it necessary to do this or can I base myself in Bergen or similar and skip the travel elements.

      Any advice is gratefully received.

      Thanks! Natalie

      I was looking at a weekend break to come snowboarding around Lillehammer (Hafjell). I was wondering though wether its best to stay in Lillehammer or Hafjell itself? Is there any nightlife in Hafjell (or Lillehammer for that matter)? If staying is there any transport to Hafjell and if so how often and is it expensive/long to get there?
