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.

I would like to do Norway in a Nutshell from Bergen to Oslo, but in all of the tours I see the Oslo to Bergen direction only. Can I do Bergen-Voss-Gudvagen-Flam-Myrdar-Oslo? My plan is to travel in April/May 2015.
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!
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!
I would like to go to Norway next holiday and I've searched a bit on the internet for some great places. But I thought just ask ik right here. So my queastion is, do some of you guys know some great places in Norway which aren't very touristic. I don't like that (very busy and expensive). However thanks for your answer, I appreciate it.
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!
