    • UPCOMING NORWAY ITINERARY QUERY

      Norway Jul 8, 2016 at 2:30 AM

      Hi There,

      I (31yrs) and my wife (30yrs) , along with my Parents (60yrs) (Total 4 people) are planning to visit norway for our vacation next week.(Starting July 15th 2016)

      We all love to travel. We would love to see norway with different means of transport to get around & see...like Air , Road , Ferry & rail. We are not much into hiking & camping but do enjoy places of interest on our way. We are vegetarians and would be preferring to Rent apartments wherever we go, considering there might not be enough options for us eating outside. Also we are comfortable cooking quick meals & pack them for our On the go tours.

      After going through few itineraries and Search I have put down the following plan. Would really appreciate if anybody can let ms know if the plan is smooth & workable. Any suggestions are welcome.

      15th July : 3: 30 AM : New Delhi to Oslo (12 noon , 15th july) (14hrs including stopover)

      overnight stay in oslo.

      16th : Oslo to Svolvaer By Air. (we may have to do this via bodo OR oslo to bodo by air & bodo to svolvaer by ferry). Renting a Car in svolvaer . (expensive?) Overnight in Svolvaer or Kabelvag.

      17th : Driving on E10 , exploring Lofoten on the way to Reine . Overnight in Reine. (Robuer Stay).

      18th : Morning : Moskenes to Bodo Ferry. And then we have to go from BODO to ANDALSNES.

      For this which option should we do :

      A. Bodo to Andalsnes via Trondheim , Dombas BY RAIL (We may do overnight train to reach next morning) OR

      B. Bodo to Trondheim By Air and Trondheim to Andalsnes via Dombas By Rail?

      19th : Renting a Car in Andalsnes to reach Geiranger via trollstigen.

      19th : We will have Car to drive around . Also we can do Geiranger cruise that day. Overnight stay on Geirangerfjord area. (any recommendations?)

      20th : Driving around Geiranger. Stay in Geiranger.

      21st : Driving to Alesund & dropping Car.

      Alesund to Bergen By Air. Overnight stay in bergen.

      22nd : Bergen sighseeing for a day. Overnight stay in bergen.

      23rd : Bergen To Flam (Norway in nutshell). Overnight stay in Flam.

      24th : Flam to Oslo : overnight in Oslo.

      25th : Oslo sightseeing.

      26th ; Morning Flight Back to Delhi.

      We would welcome any suggestions if we are cramping too much or overstaying any place which can be changed. I know its last minute & we have lot of bookings to do in term of transportation & accommodation.

      Thanks

    • Oslo and day trips

      Norway Jun 30, 2016 at 2:57 PM

      I can book a flight to Oslo in early september for 6 full days. I mostly like nature and want to see beautiful views, but also interested to get to know Oslo. how much time should I stay in Oslo in your opinion? Should I book "Norway in a nutshell" trip? The flight back will be from Oslo too so I can book a round trip but which one? It seems as if it's a lot of rides for 2 day trips but they're going from one place to another and don't have time to stay and visit the cities.... So is it worth it? Or maybe should I book an airbnb for 6 nights in Oslo and take day trips on my own... will it be cheaper?

      I will also be in Trondheim for a week in November to visit a friend of mine and she'll take me to some nice places to see but it will be in the winter so it's probably better if I see some of this beauty in September. But again, I don't want to feel as if I missed getting to know Oslo. I may take a longer trip to Norway next summer for 3 weeks and then I have more time for everything. The question is what to do in this 6.5 days.... Thanks for any help! :)

      We would like to do a one day trip to Flam to do the fjord safari and the Snowshoe hike after. End of the Snowhoe hike is 18:00 o'clock and after that we would like to travel back to Bergen. I checked the trains but the last option is at 16:50 by train. Is there a other possibility to travel back to Bergen in the evening? Or do you recommend to have a night over in Flam?

      Hope to hear from you soon.

    • Flamsbana tickets in Flam

      by DavidW107 Online Now Feb 1, 2015 at 12:12 PM

      We are more interested in the (2hr, 15min) fjordsafari tour in the morning of June 9, 2015. If we miss the 9:30 tour and have to take the 10:55 tour - it would return by 13:10. That would seen to allow us to take the Flamsbana to Myrdal and return in plenty of time before our 18:00 'on-board' time. Our NCL Star cruise is the only ship in port that day as far as I know. Two questions:

      For those with experience in Flam, the 9:30 fjordsafari seems to provide us with more than enough time to take the train tour as well - but are my assumptions that the 10:55 fjordsafari tour also allows us to comfortably complete the train trip to Myrdal and return correct?

      Since we are the only cruise ship in port that day and not knowing what the weather might be or our desire to take both tours that day, I would like to wait to purchase train tickets until after we return from the fjord tour on the afternoon of June 9. Will that cause any problems?

    • Short connections at Myrdal - safe to book?

      by wiresparrow Online Now May 17, 2014 at 12:56 AM

      I'll be taking the train from Bergen - Flåm in August, and have read in some (quite old) forums that the trains are super reliable and, if they are ever late, will wait for passengers connecting to the Flåm railway and/or mainline. However, NSB has a warning on their website about booking short connections. I'm wondering if the trains can be relied upon and whether it is true that they will wait in the event of a journey in either direction being delayed? The options often seem to be either 7min or 90mins between connections, and I understand there is nothing at Myrdal to occupy one's time. Many thanks in advance for your advice!

      by fasterdog Online Now May 13, 2014 at 12:30 PM

      I am hoping to travel from Bergen to Oslo, stopping on the way to do the Norway in a Nutshell tour. I thought a good option would be to travel from Bergen to Flam, then do the Flam-Aurlandsfiord-Naeroyfiorden-Voss Tour, return to Flam, spend the night there or nearby, and continue on to Oslo the next day. The intention of course is to spend a night in the beautiful Norwegian scenery, but without spending a fortune on the experience.

      Does anyone have an suggestions on a good place to stay in the area?

      And is there any other equally nice scenery anywhere else in the Bergen area?
