Hi - what companies have small ships (100 or less passengers) cruising Norway's coast, visiting your fiords. We're looking for a company that includes hiking, kayaking, inflatable boats for short touring and educational lectures in English. Thanks, Marty
We shall have the whole day in Oslo from after breakfast (staying at the COMFORT RUNWAY hotel) and have to be back in time for a flight at 1955.
What is the best way into Oslo and back?
What would be a good sightseeing itinerary in town?

It looks so delicious, and it reminds me of something I ate when I was little
I have got a brief layover in Oslo Gardermoen (5.15 hours to be precise!). What would you suggest? Climbing the Opera house is already on my list :)

Hello everyone, I have one spare train ticket (return) and would like to know if anyone would need it so I can resell it.
The train tickets is from Oslo (departing at 23:23 on 12 jun 2013) to Voss (arriving at 05:25 on 13 jun). The return is from Voss (departing at 00:27 on 17 jun 2013) to Oslo (arriving at 06:27 on 17 jun). I purchased them at the mini price which is NOK 249 and NOK 399. Unfortunately my plane to Oslo has been cancelled in cause of an airport stricke, so I now have these two tickets and I'm looking for someone who happens to plan traveling to Voss on 12 june.
If you are interested in purchasing these tickets, please reply to me and we are work on the details.
My email is email@example.com and my phone number is +33 0608787528
Thank you very much.
How much will a taxi cost from the Grand Hotel in Oslo to the Oslo Airport
We shall be flying into Oslo with SAS from Tromso arriving 1205 and transferring onto a BA flight to London.
The BA flight time was originally 1515, but it has been changed to 1435.
Is 2hrs 30 mins sufficient time for the transfer?
Which daytrips would you suggest from Oslo? (around 1-1,5 hours away).
Hello. I am planning to take a ferry from Copenhagen to Oslo to make a short trip to these two Scandinavian capital cities. I will be in Oslo only about 6 hours. I wonder what one can do in such a short time in Oslo? Any tips? Greetings. Magda
My name is Kyra and I'm from Belgium. I'm searching for a person who wants to visit Norway with me. The country has always fascinated me, first with the mythes (I love fairytales) and then with it's beautiful nature. I really want to visit Oslo, but I know that that is not the place to be if you want to see nature. So maybe I also want to explore the rest of the country. I also don't know for how long I want stay there, it also depends on the company I'm with.
So if you are adventurous and not afraid of cold weather, let me know something and we can talk about it more.
I visited Norway a year ago and purchased these adorable little troll dolls
I lost them and want to buy new ones but can't seem to find them online.
I think the only place where they're sold are at the small gift shops (that cater to tourists), like this one
My problem is, I have no way of contacting these little gift shops (as none of them have any online website). I tried contacting the larger retail stores, but none of them carry this particular troll.
So I have a request, can someone in Norway get me the contact information for a small gift shop like the one pictured here.
I'd like to email them to ask them if they carry the troll doll that I'm looking for.
Im traveling solo to oslo in mid-february. If anyone would like to meet up for a drink, that would be great.
I am visiting my sister-in-law who just had a baby. My wife are leaving this Friday for home. We are looking for traditional Norwegian food in the surrounding areas. Unfortunately we can only travel north to Horten or south to Tonsberg or in the general vicinity. That is our range of travel for this trip. We love everything that we have experienced since we have been here.
We would like to experience to the true Norwegian food with Norwegians at a moderate cost.
Thanks for your help and we hope to see you down the path sometime soon!!
Thinking about travel to Norway again (never stop thinking for too long). I did some whatifs and found cheapest round trips are from November till travel picks up the next year. Lodgings wents as low as40 a day! Wondering about meals. I assume a lot of produce is imported. What is a reasonable estimate per day for meals in November? Or is that sort of a constant all year?
I would like to have an idea what it would cost to take a taxi from the cruise terminal in Oslo to the Vigeland Sculpture Park. Or, when I was younger I took the #12 tram to the park but forget where I boarded it! If I take the tram, how do I pay on board and how much?
I might be visiting Oslo in December as part of my round the world trip.
Since there is no possibility of doing day trips from Oslo with tours companies in the middle of winter, do you think 2 days would be enough to spend there? (Arrive on 23rd of December and leave on 25th of December - so that would give me an entire full day to explore the city on the 24th)
Also what could I do while I am there?
Hi, I am taking the ferry tomorrow morning to Oslo from Denmark and read that Thursday, May 17 is a National Holiday in Norway. Does anyone know if the museums will be open? Are there any special things to do that day, I will be there from 16-18 May and then driving to Stockholm. Thanks!!
I have 2 full days in Oslo. Any suggestions on what to cover? =)

Is there such a thing as accommodation in Oslo where a double room would cost 100USD or less. Apperantly, there is an organisation at the city hall and at the train station that books rooms in private houses but it should be done on the day of arriaval and it is not immideately clear how much these rooms would cost. Does anybody have any idea? Have you used this service? Thanks for the insights.

I'm traveling to Oslo for 2 weeks and need to find something to do for the weekend. I'm thinking of traveling to another Norweigan country for the weekend but don't know where to go? I have limited time but want to take advantage of seeing as much as I can while I'm away. Any thoughts or suggestions? Should I try Denmark or Helsinki or something closer?
I'm planning a trip to Oslo. I think I'll get to NY on the train. But I was looking at flights from JFK to Oslo. Icelandair looks good to me. Anyone fly it? Any reason I should avoid it?

Dear VT'ers please excuse me for writing this on behalf of my son, but he's soon travelling to Alicante, but Direct flights to Alicante are prohibitively expensive and it is cheaper for him to fly via Oslo!
However he has three hours between flights at this airport (Ryanair are flying to Reggli, which I believe is about 60kms from Oslo, so I know he won't have time to visit the lovely city. However he would like to try some local food, and somewhere for him to go for lunch.
Can anyone please recommend me his options
On our trip to Europe this summer we stayed for a week in Oslo, (yes, the SAME week of the bombings and the tragic killings in Utoya. We were on Bgdoy peninsula during the bombing though.)
I have a few images of this magnificent building but even with the aid of street signs I cannot find it on Google Earth. (trying to retrace our amazing trip.)
Can anyone help me out here, or at least point in the right direction? I think it was near the palace, or maybe Vigeland Park.
My friend has recently moved to Oslo and is living in an area which is great during the day but a nightmare during the evening. The restaurants turn into night clubs and the noise goes on constantly all night. His apartment is near the harbor near Aker Brygge.
It's hard to decide what would be a great area to live if you don't know the city really well. What would be the best way to go about it and find a new place to live. How do you know if the found the right area that suits your wish list. Is there a good internet site with apartments for rent?
Some wishes: green (park) nearby, quite area during evening or night, not family or children area, 2 bedrooms and with balcony.
Could anybody give some tips and tricks? All help is welcome.
I will be using my eurail pass to travel the Norway in a Nutshell route. I read that a reservation is quite essential for the Oslo to Mydral part of the trip during summer peak.
My question is, if I am travelling on 20th September 2011, is it still advisable for me to make a reservation in advance for Oslo to Mydral train trip? Or can I just safely make a reservation the day before when I reach Oslo and still get a seat?
Is there any way that I can make the reservation online? Or else, is there any email which I can wrtite to NSB to make a reservation?
