      First time in Oslo - what area to stay in

      Oslo Nov 11, 2016 at 1:10 PM

      Hi. I am planning a one week trip to Oslo and would like your help in choosing an area to stay in. I plan to rent an apartment. I would like for it to be near good transportation and/or to be within walking distance of major tourist destinations/attractions such as museums, historical sites, interesting neighborhoods, architecture, that kind of thing. It appears there is lots to see and do so I am assuming I can keep busy for a week - is this correct?

      Day Trip to Jostedalsbreen Glacier

      Sogn og Fjordane Dec 2, 2016 at 12:17 PM

      I am keen to go to Jostedalsbreen Glacier, or another glacier if there is a better option in the same region of Norway.

      On Jostedalsbreen Glacier it seems there are a few choices of places to go to, such as Briksdalsbreen and Nigardsbreen, and there are also different options such as just look or do a guided walk.

      I found a bus which goes from Stryn, Loen and Olden to the Briksdalsbreen Glacier, so I can do a day trip this way.

      visitnorway.com/listings/gla...

      This means I can get to the bottom of a glacier, and I have 2 1/2 hours to walk around, and it is a very reasonable price.

      But what are my other options?

      Are there any other accessible glaciers in the region which I should consider?
      How much would a guided walk cost, where would I have to go to do the walk, and who offers these walks?

      I won't have a car, so I am limited by where buses or tours go to.

      Any guidance on this would be very much appreciated.

      by Junctionbox Online Now Jan 15, 2007 at 5:10 AM

      Hi all

      We are going Ski-ing in Geilo on 4th Feb for a week. First time in Norway. A couple of us are beginners although my wife and I are experienced skiers. A couple of questions:

      1. Are there plenty of ATMs in the town where I can withdraw Krone using my Visa card?
      2. What is cost of beginners' ski lessons?
      3. Ballpark figure for cost of lift pass?

      Any other info would be gratefully received. We are looking forward to the trip immensely.
