      Travel suggestions between Trofors, Nordland and Bo, Telemark areas, please.

      Norway Nov 2, 2015 at 10:05 AM

      In August we will be visiting Hattfjeldal near Trofors and also want to visit Seljord near Bo to visit where my ancestors are from. Looking for suggestions on how to do it. I checked the train possibilities though to make the entire trip is too long. One of us traveling has only a tolerance of 5 hours on the train thus, between Trofors and Trondheim is fine by Train. Then maybe fly to or from Oslo and take the train to Bo.

      Overall we are not in a rush and see that we could take a Hurtigruten ship in either direction between Tondheim and Bronnoysund if the schedule fits in. We are in early planning and haven't yet determined where we will fly into, Bergen or Oslo from Chicago. Any suggestions on which city or possible intermediate stops are worthwhile seeing? I am not familiar enough with Norway and therefore all comments are greatly appreciated.

    • Visiting Stavanger during the winter

      Stavanger Nov 22, 2015 at 1:40 PM

      We are visitng to Stavanger during the winter and wanted to see Kjeragbolten and the pulpit rock. It is impossible to hike, but all the packages for boat cruises for Kjeragbolten seems to be related to hiking. Is there a way that I can see both Kjeragbolten and pulpit rock in a boat cruise?
      I see boat cruise options for pulpit rock, but not sure if Kjeragbolten is included somehow unspecified.

      Me and my friends are planning a trip to Bergen and we'd like to spend a few days in Odda. But is there a bus to lead us from Bergen to Odda ? Or any ferry ? If it does, what is the price ? I have checked some websites but they were in Norsk and I'm french so it was very difficult for me to understand what it was saying. I hope you'll be able to answer my question. Thank you very much.

    • Compressed Norway in Nutshell in November

      Flåm Nov 1, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      Is it possible in early November (next wk), to do a rather compressed one day side trip from Oslo with following:
      Oslo-Myrdal (Eurailpass), Myrdal-Flam (Flamsbana), Flam - Gudvangen (ferry), Gudvangen-Voss (bus), Voss-Oslo
      (eurailpass-hopefully arriving before 24:00 to maximize use of single day on the pass? I have read that there's a single ferry in winter months, but can't pinpoint the time of departure from Flam. I realize it's a very full day, but I'm trying to get best use of my 5 days of train travel in 2 weeks of travel in Norway in November. Thanks for reply.

    • Appropriate clothing for Norway/Svalbard in February/March?

      Norway Oct 29, 2015 at 7:45 AM

      I'll be going through Europe in February and March of 2016.

      I was sent this link ( ) in recommendations on how to dress appropriately, but I was wondering if there was a specific brand or type of jacket that northern Norwegians/Svalbardians (?) usually wear? I'll also be going to other surrounding countries of varying temperatures (ie Iceland, Denmark, Netherlands but also Lapland Finland), so I would prefer to be able to zip an inner layer off so I don't overheat? I only want to bring a carry on and backpack so I would prefer not to bring 2 different jackets ..??

      I've never traveled over the winter so I don't know much of winter climate outside of New York. I researched the average winter temperatures but I know wind and lack of sunlight makes a huge difference in how cold it feels as well ......

      I'm just wondering if there's a certain type of clothing that people in countries up north swear by? My friend told me to get a Canadian goose jacket but I won't want to throw 600$ towards a jacket and not be warm enough.

      Should I just wear an old jacket to Europe and plan to buy one there? Same with long underwear? I've never seen any being sold around here, and those "heattech leggings" that Uniqlo sells doesn't really do much even in America soOo ..

      Please let me know, thank you :)

      scandinavia euro pass

      Norway Nov 16, 2015 at 2:57 PM

      we are going to buy the Scandinavia euro rail pass. my question is will it cover all the scenic routes that I will be doing while in Norway?? does it include the ferry that I will do ??
      ferry between Geiranger and Hellesylt, the longer ferry trip between Geiranger and Valldal, the one-and-a-half-hour sightseeing trip on board M/S Geirangerfjord

      below are the scenic rail routes
      - Begin in Oslo, including the Bergen Railway, which runs over the Hardangervidda mountain plateau.
      No other train ride between two cities in Europe is at a higher altitude than the one between Oslo and Bergen. This line takes in some dazzling scenery, with the most spectacular stretch being the one over the Hardangervidda,

      • The famous Flåm Railway, the world's steepest.
      This will take you down to the village of Flåm, in the innermost corner of the Aurlandfjord. The Aurlandsfjord is an arm of the mighty Sognefjord, Norway's longest fjord. A must for any rail enthusiast, the Flåm Railway, one of the world's steepest railways on normal gauge, is one of Norway's most popular attractions, and a masterpiece of Norwegian engineering.

      • Dovre Railway from Oslo to Trondheim with its sideline the Rauma Railway between Dombås and Åndalsnes

      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

      by csuresh Online Now 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.
