    • Private car rental (Harstadt)

      Norway Yesterday

      Dear all, I am planning a trip in northern Norway this summer. I have heard that there are locals, usually the owners of car repair garages, that rent out used cars for about half the price of the big agencies. I would be really interested to do that but I cannot find anything on the internet. If you have already experienced this type of rental or know people who rent their car in the surroundings of Harstadt, please let me know. Thank you for you help. Making my trip a little bit cheaper would not hurt :)

      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.

    • 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.


    • 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.
      3. Do you have the email address of the relevant Bus Operator or a Tourist Agency in

      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 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

      We have never been to Norway but have decided to this christmas. Current schedule allows us to spend a couple of nights in Trondheim as part of our travels and we chosen to do this on 24th / 25th December.

      Hotel is booked (Britannia) which includes breakfast, however they have advised their restaurants will be closed...

      Is it likely that we will find shops / restaurants open on 24th / 25th or do you suggest we fill our bags with food on the 23rd on the way down from Narvik?

      It would be great if someone could give me an idea of what to expect during the Christmas period.

      Hei you all, Norsk people!

      I'm starting to plan my holidays, and Trondhiem seems to be on top at the moment. I've got a friend living there now, and I guess I'd come and see him (sleep for free) and on the way visit the city and the landscapes.

      I've been to Norway before, and now I'd like to see trees with leaves and de-iced mountains and wateralls ;-D

      what would you advise me to visit, concering landscapes and nature. It'd be places reachable by train or by car but not more than a day away, so that would mean dayly excursions.

      And btw, concerning transport, do you have an approximate idea of the cost of renting a car? something like AVIS or if possible cheaper. My friend might be working by the time I'm here (at least he's desperate to find a job... if you know of something, I'll let him know!!)so I'd have to pay the rent ALL myself. Is there any requirement for a foreigner driving in Norway? a special permit?

      oh yes, if you know of any web where I can check for all that informatin, that would be skjempe bra (for) meg.

      Well, takk skal dere ha (is it right?)

      PS: I've forgotten almost all Norks I sad.

      by MattinVA Online Now Jan 14, 2005 at 2:00 PM

      Hello, Myself and a few friends will be travelling to Trondheim in March. We've looked into some different accomodations and the Trondheim Leilighetshotell/Trondheim Apartment Hotel looks quite appealing. However, I'd like to know if anyone has any feedback on this place? How close to the city centre is it? Is it a decent place to stay? Any great things about it? Any horror stories? Also, is the bar and club scene very active this time of the year? I know that we've just missed the International Student Festival, so does the town go back into a deep winter's sleep this time of year? What nights are the bars and clubs particularly active? The only other reservation I have is that we're all Americans and are a bit concerned about the reception that we'll get due to public feelings about the Bush administration, Iraq, etc. We're all pretty non-political easygoing people just looking to explore the world and make new friends. Will the good residents of Trondheim welcome us or shun us and throw drinks in our faces? *laughing* Any feedback on Trondheim tips and recommendations would be much appreciated.
