      Norway Aug 6, 2015 at 9:33 PM

      Hello, I definitey need help! We will be visiting Norway for 2 weeks at the end of september. We are planning 1 week in Lofoten and 1 week in the fjords. We are going in norway for hiking and outdoors activities, we will rent a car and would like to have max 2-3 different hotels for 1 week. Around which city will we have the more activities to do at the end of september, Alesund or Bergen? Will the leaves still be in the trees at that time of year? Are we better to go in Lofoten first? Is 1 week in Lofoten too much? Thank you for your help!!!

      Norway Aug 24, 2015 at 9:06 PM

      Hi everyone!
      My husband and I plan to visit Norway in the month of November (6th -20th)with our 6 year old daughter.We intend to fly to Tromso,rent a car after staying a day in the city, drive to lofoten islands and drive back to Tromso to catch our flight back to Amsterdam.

      My questions are..
      1.Are there any beautiful towns between Tromso and the islands that we can stop at because we dont really want to drive ard 6/7 hrs straight.thought staying a day somewhere in between..

      2. Read in reviews that there is an option to take a ferry to the lofoten islands.Is it possible to get to most of the islands (all the way to Å) on road only?We want to try to be on the road always and not have to get onto a ferry.

      3.Will there be any toll on the road that we are required to pay along the way?

      4.Is there anywhere else beautiful anyone can reccommend us on where to head?We ve gt 2 weeks and the only thing we have now is to explore the Lofoten Islands.Will 2 weeks in the islands be enough?

      5. Any place to recommend on where to stay in lofoten?For now we have Å,Henningsvaer,Reine in our places- to- stay list.

      6. What is the weather usually like in november?We have driven in Iceland before.Silly ques but Will the weather be as unpredictable and constantly changing like those of Iceland's ?Or is it different?

      Heres thanking everyone in advance for helping us out..Your help would be greatly appreciated...

    • Norwegian Cruise Excursions tips requests

      Olden Aug 14, 2015 at 8:37 AM

      Thank you Dabs for your detail transportation information from Olden Cruise terminal to Briksdal. Taking the public bus is so cheap and seems easy. Five of us are thinking of doing the same but are concern about the availability. Is there only one bus at each departure time?
      We will be on Princess Caribbean deaprting Southampton on August 29 and docking at Stavanger, Olden, Hellesylt, Geiranger and Bergen. In Geiranger, the bus tours to MOUNT DALSNIBBA & FLYDALS GORGE are fully booked. Does anyone have alternate economical suggestions? We appreciate any tips shared.
      Thank You.

      8 Day Tour Fjors of Norway - Mail Travel London

      Norway Aug 13, 2015 at 1:23 AM

      I subscribe to Mail Travel, but live in Australia. Would appreciate comments of this 8 day tour incl return flights from London, Tour conducted by Newmarket Holidays.

      Day 1

      Fly to Bergen, meet your tour manager and transfer by coach through the spectacular scenery to the idyllic village of Balestrand. Settle in to your room, and acquaint yourself with the beautiful surroundings, before enjoying your first dinner in the hotel.

      Day 2

      Today, get to know Balestrand. Since the late 19th Century, Sognefjord has welcomed visitors searching for clear mountain air and enchanting scenery, and whenever you go, the area's natural beauty will enchant you, as will the warmth of the welcome virtually everywhere you go.

      Day 3

      Your first included excursion is an unforgettable day trip by boat to the historic trading port of Bergen. Join us to discover a city of cobbled streets and medieval houses with a colourful harbour and open-air fish market. Stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.

      Day 4

      The Jostedal Glacier, mainland Europe's largest ice-flow, is a mesmerising sight that dominates the northern landscape beyond the fjords. Our optional visit here is a great opportunity to see the glacier itself and to explore the informative Norwegian Glacier Museum.

      Day 5

      Our optional Norway in a Nutshell excursion is an unmissable tour of one of the world's most scenic regions. The day includes a ride on the world-famous Flamsbana line from Myrdal to Flam, a remarkable 20km descent down the steep-sided valley, and a spectacular two-hour cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.

      Day 6

      Spend today's optional excursion exploring beautiful Sognefjord and the fascinating Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger, with its fine collection of fishing and 'ice' boats that reflect Norway's age-old interaction with the sea and the fjords.

      Day 7

      Spend your final day in Balestrand relaxing as you make the very most of the village and its surroundings. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel at the end of an unforgettable week in one of the world's most beautiful corners.

      Day 8

      Transfer back to Bergen airport, and check in for your flight home.

      What's Included
      •Seven nights' four-star half-board accommodation at the Kvikne's Hotel in Balestrand, on Sognefjord
      •Return flights to Bergen
      •Comfortable, air-conditioned coach travel and transfers
      •Fully escorted by a friendly, experienced tour manager

      Cost: Approx 850 English Pounds, cheaper earlier months ,

      Note no mention of the Cost of optional tours, which I think are essential to enjoy the holiday.

      Anyone had experience with these coys.

      Appreciate all advice and comments

      Mike

      I am planning on doing NIN starting in Bergen and winding up in Voss. Once there I am considering renting a car for about 2 days. Any good suggestions as to where to go in that amount of time. I will have done the southbound cruise from Kirkenes to Bergen.

      day in Voss

      by ynnpar Online Now Jan 30, 2008 at 9:21 AM

      3 of us will be in Voss for a day in Mid-March; the intent is to do some skiing. But I'm just wondering if it might be interesting to do some snowshoeing there? Does anyone snowshoe around there, or does everyone just use skies and snowboards? Anyone know if you can rent snowshoes? We're not packing much for this trip and I'd like to avoid having to bring mine. Thanks.

      Anyobdy would like to join me in Voss, Norway?

      by suzie1976 Online Now May 22, 2007 at 2:36 AM

      Hello everyone, I’ll be going to Norway on the 01 of June to visit my boyfriend. He is staying in Ulvik – about 3 hours drive from Bergen. It’s a huge farm with beautiful scenery. Selling flower is one of the family main income, so you will see lotsa beautiful flower at the farm too! Not only that, he had a family cottage up in the mountain. It definitely a nice place to go for a swim during the summer. Was wondering if anybody will be interested to join us? We can have BBQ during the night, drink at the verandah, just chill out at the garden, or up the hill to the cottage to have a swim there. Sometimes the house can be quite quiet especially during the night so it will be nice to meet some people and talk about anything! Oh ya.. no worries there will be enough room for at least 10 persons.

      Anybody interested?

      When Does the Serious Weather Arrive?

      by TheSingingPostman Online Now Nov 25, 2006 at 4:18 AM

      Would it be crazy of me to visit Voss in the first half of December to go hiking in the forests? I mean, if I arrive in three weeks' time, will the first heavy snow already have fallen, making forest walking impossible? And if the snow hasn't arrived yet, will it nevertheless be VERY VERY COLD during the day, making hiking a miserable experience? If anyone can advise me, I'd be very grateful. I'd hate to waste my money by booking myself onto the ferry in advance, only to find most of Hordaland buried under snow when I arrived (or being drenched by freezing rain).
