      Can anyone recommend a Hotel or B & B in Trofors, Norway for June 2015?? Thank you!

      Trofors Dec 7, 2014 at 7:27 AM

      Can anyone recommend a Hotel or B & B in Trofors, Norway for June 2015? Trofors must be a very small village in Nordland though, there is a train station there. I have looked at several hotel sites on line though, found nothing there. I am visiting Hattfjelldal, Nordland then looking at Trofors to catch a southbound 8:56 morning train. Any & all thoughts are greatly appreciated. Thank you, Chuck Ps. having a hotel can make this trip a workable, as traveling on to Geiranger to meet friends one day later.

      I arrive in Stavanger tomorrow night (friday 31st august) and we want to get from Stavanger to Lysebotn on saturday or sunday. we don't have a car so need ferries or buses or trains
      the only thing we've found so far is a bus that arrives in lauvvik 4 minutes before the ferry leaves so that's no good.
      is there another ferry we can get or a bus that runs at this time in the year?

      Many people suggested it's very difficult to do Pulpit rock on a tight schedule (8:00-17:00) with a 10 year old, so we won't go :(
      We are interested in seeing as much scenery and fjords as possible and doing outdoor activities. Stavanger is our third cruise stop after visiting Flam and Bergen. What do you recommend doing in Stavanger? Are there impressive fjords to see or we should stroll in the city? Or hiking maybe?

      Thank you!

    • Can you hike to Kjeragbolten in tennis shoes?

      by sistrames Online Now Aug 28, 2011 at 1:12 PM

      Hi all,
      I don't have my hiking boots with me this trip, just regular running shoes/sneakers. All the reviews tell me that this trail can be pretty rough and traverses a lot of rock, plus some very steep passes.

      Can I do it in tennis shoes? What about when I get to the rock (bolten?) itself...are tennis shoes too slick to stand on the rock?

      Thanks for any tips. (FWIW, I'm a fit hiker and the altitude gained/6 hours RT shouldn't be a problem)

      Campsites, car hire & beaches near Stavanger

      by teamok Online Now Jul 21, 2010 at 1:18 AM

      Hi all,

      Me and my girlfriend will be travelling to Norway in late August/Early September and need some advice!

      1) Camping

      Where are the most beautiful campsites near Stavanger?

      2)Car hire & beaches

      Searching online it seems that car hire is very expensive in Norway - average price seems to be about 475NOK/£50 per day... almost double what my local placein the UK costs!) so we will need to limit the number of days we will hire a car for.

      We will mainly be using the car to travel from Stavanger to Bergen but would like to have the freedom of a car to visit some of the beaches near Stavanger. Obviously if some of the best beaches are less than 10Km from our campsite and can be reached by public transport then it may not be worth having a car from this part of our trip...

      Any advice you can give is greatly appreciated!
