      Hi all: What would be a reasonable and safe amount of time to allocate to arrive in Oslo on one airline, deplane, collect baggage, and check in on another airline bound for Bangkok? Is the airport in Oslo efficient and easy to negotiate?

      I am looking for an isolated cabin in northern europe

      Norway Jan 18, 2016 at 11:12 AM

      Hello, I am looking for a remote lodge scandinavia, iceland or estonia. I don't need much; the more rustic it is the better. The idea is to stay for 6 months there were I can remove myself from all, live like an hermit if you will. The goal is to reconnect with the nature and meditate, ideally a cabin close to a lake.
      So I am asking the dear virtual tourist community where can I find such place ?

      thanks in advance for your time

      Ps: my price cap is around 400€ per month

      What to wear in February and vegan food.

      Tromsø Jan 16, 2016 at 4:37 AM

      I'm travelling to Tromsø and the lofoten islands in February of this year and I am interested to know what clothing is appropriate.

      I plan to wear a heattech thermal base layer, fleece zip up mid layer and parka outer layer with mittens (thermal gloves for photography) and trapper hat (my ears are very sensitive to the cold!

      However what about trousers? How many layers are enough to keep warm? I have leg warmers and thick socks but I've read mixed reviews about whether to wear hiking boots or snow boots.

      We plan to go hiking / trailing the northern lights / husky sledding (and general off the track exploring for photography) we'll also like to visit museums and the like around town. Any advice would be brilliant.

      I'm also vegan so am wondering how available vegetarian options or alternatives are on offer in restaurants or fish places and whether Tromsø has a supermarket close to the town centre where we'll be staying.

      (Last but not least, has anyone got experience of good hiking trails with great landscape views that are reachable on foot from the town?)

      Thank you in advance :-)

    • First Visit to Norway, help needed with plan

      Norway Feb 2, 2016 at 11:33 AM

      I am senior, experienced traveler and travel solo. I considered taking escorted tour which travels from UK airports to Bergen continuing on coach to hotel in Balestrand for 7 nights half board. I live in US and could travel from Manchester, Gatwick or Bristol. There are 2 or 3 free days to do sightseeing. Some of the day tours are included, others optional. Group will travel by boat to Bergen to see city plus stop at harbor. A day tour to see Jostedal Glacier and northern landscapes beyond Fjords. Optional visit to see Glacier and Museum. Norway in Nutshell, riding Flamsbane line, Mydral to Flam, 20k. descent, 2 hr. cruise thru Aurlands fjord to Gudvangen. Included trip to Sognefjord to Kaupanger. Hotel is near the Balestrand village. Need to hear the areas mentioned in the tours are the most scenic or if there are better choices that can be done if traveling independently. Is it easy to travel in Norway to some of the popular scenic areas without having to pay for the tour. If it can be done I would save the supplements for solo traveler and might be able to get flights to Bergen for less. I did see that Norwegian air has non stop flight from Manchester to Bergen and I could book Aer LIngus to Dublin on to Manchester. Is it easy to prebook bus, train land ferry tickets. I would plan making this journey before end of August. Need guidance from travelers who know the scenic areas in Norway. If I decide not to book this tour, can one travel easily in Norway by public transportation and ferry? Is Balestrand a convenient base? Any suggestions for other base that might be more convenient for taking day trips and help with hotels. I am experienced hiker and active so try to pack as much as possible into my trips. I like visiting historic areas, museums and photography.  Many thanks to all.

      To Trondheim (maybe Bergen) by car

      Norway Jan 27, 2016 at 12:42 AM

      Thinking of driving to Trondheim and maybe Bergen by car in August.

      We are two adults and a pet. Recommendations where to stay in Trondheim?
      How are the roads in August from Trondheim to Bergen? Lots of head spinning cliffs and narrow roads? I'm scared of heights.

      We are thinking of taking the ferry from Wasa to Umeå (Sweden), then drive through Sweden and end up to Trondheim. We are trying to avoid Stockholm. According to map I suppose there is a green valley and road to drive to Trondheim?

    • Help with western Norway itinerary

      Norway Jan 26, 2016 at 4:02 PM

      We will be in Norway for a week in late April after a week in Netherlands, where we will have spent a week in Amsterdam. We are a family of 6 with children ages 21, 18, 15, 13. We are reasonably adventurous and primarily are wanting to see the beauty of Norway, other than our time in Oslo.

      Our plan is:
      -2 nights in Oslo, primarily to visit our ancestral villages in the area; we aren't planning on spending as much time in the city (1.5 days)
      --Norway in Nutshell Oslo-Bergen (all day)
      -2 nights in Bergen (one full day to see the city)
      -1 night (2 days) UNKNOWN
      -2 nights Stavanger (hike Preikestolen)

      First off, do the known parts of this itinerary seem doable? I know that we aren't spending much time in Oslo, but with all the beauty out west, it seemed the more efficient thing to do. NIN would give us the chance to see a beautiful section of the country while travelling west. Is one day enough in Bergen? I assume the Preikestolen hike takes most of the day? What will the travelling, weather, and scenery be like in late April? I understand that some things are still closed in April.

      The primary thing I would like advice on is how to handle the undetermined 2 days and 1 night between Bergen and Stavanger. I am thinking of renting a van and possibly taking two days to get down to Stavanger, staying somewhere along the way to break up the trip and see the country. Was thinking of seeing Hardangerfjord and travelling south from there. Any recommendations on this? Where would be the place to stay, and primary things to see? Another option could be to spend 2 nights somewhere, and only spend 1 night in Stavanger, after the Preikestolen hike. Or should we stay in the Bergen area or the Sognefjord area and maximize our time there, taking the Kystbussen bus down to Stavanger or fly. (I have heard that there no longer is an express boat from Bergen to Stavanger).

      Keep in mind that Stavanger is a must because we fly out from there, are Preikestolen is a priority.

      Thanks for your help!

I am reluctant to name the person here so as to respect their privacy, but would welcome any ideas as to websites/forums where I could trace him? As I said a long shot, but would be great to reply to that letter from the war in person!

      howdy folks!

      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?)

      Trondheim in March

      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.

Once again I have tried to contact NSB without success. Another thought is leaving it somewhere near by that doesn't have parking restrictions. Anywhere like that in Trondheim or within transport distance from the train station? Many thanks (again) for your suggestions! Truly, they are helping us! x Kiwi
