    • Getting to the Airport

      Molde Jan 1, 2017 at 4:26 PM

      I'm wondering if anyone can tell me how best to get to the airport, or to the Hertz dealership near or at the airport. I'll be arriving where the cruise ships bring their passengers, so I assume I'll be able to walk to the trafikterminalen bus station to catch a bus. I found the schedule for the Eide bus (I think) and it looks like a bus goes there about once or twice an hour in the morning on weekdays.

      Are there any other alternatives? About how much would a cab cost to go from the center of Molde to the airport, and are they readily available near the bus terminal and/or where the cruise ships dock (or bring their passengers)?

    • Nettbuss time schedule

      by Yasuka Online Now Jul 24, 2015 at 4:39 PM

      I'm planning to visit Geirangerfjord this Summer.

      And I want to use your bus. I checked your bus schedule on the Internet, but I couldn't understand it well. Could you give me more information? I think Saturday and Sunday have a different time schedule. My plan is below. Are these time schedule correct?

      1. Bus No,660 From Alesund airport(10:20 am) ------ To Alesund rutebilstasjon(10:45 am)

      2. Bus No.250 From Alesund rutebilstasjon(11:00 am) ------ To Hellesylt(13:50 pm)
      then I'll take a ferry from Hellesylt to Geiranger at 14:00pm

      1. Bus No.220 From Geiranger(12:25 pm) --- Trollstigen --- To Andalsnes(15:20 pm)take
      then I'll train from Andalsnes to Oslo at 15:31

      Thank you for your help.

      Arriving by cruise ship late morning in June, are there local tours & City tour buses?

      by charlesracine Online Now Apr 11, 2015 at 9:08 AM

      Having never been in Norway before, we have these questions. Are there local tour companies or City tour busses to book? What is recommended to see or just a walk through the city? The cruise line offers tours, though we certainly want to consider other local options. All comments & suggestions are greatly appreciated.

      Hi, We are planning to take the 12:25 bus from Geiranger to Andalsnes on 26 August and then take a train to Oslo via Dombas. My question is this: Since the bus arrives at 15:20, would it be unwise to book a ticket on the 15:31 train to Dombas/Oslo or are they timed to connect? Thanks in advance, Andrew (from the UK)

    • How to arrange a hike on a glacier from various ports? How to travel from Olden to Hellesytt

      by CSWARTZ1204 Online Now 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.

      What are the chances the Trollstigen road will be open the last week of May this year? If open, would there be any public buses going over it? Do they adjust the bus schedule based on when the road opens? I haven't been able to find any buses running from Andalsnes to Geiranger before mid-June. I'd consider driving myself if I could at least be sure the road will be open. Thanks.

      Hi All,

      I plan to have some vacation in Geiranger for 1 or 2 days. Actually what I want to see is:
      - The great Trollstigen (north route from Geiranger to Andalsnes)
      - Beautiful Dalsnibba (south route to Grotli)
      - The gigantic rock Flydalsjuvet (south route)

      For the Trollstigen, I would like to use bus (The Golden Route). Is The Golden Route cover route from Geiranger to Andalsnes (not Andalsnes to Geiranger)? The problem is that I will go in 28 - 29 May 2008 and the Golden Route itself operate in June 2008. Does anyone can give me some alternative?

      For the Dalsnibba, is there any public transportation that I can use except Golden Route?

      For Flydalsjuvet, what public transportation that cover this route?

      Also, if I rent car, it have minimum 3 days car rental and it's so expensive. So I would like to have some pt or motorcycle.. Need help if anyone knows for motorcycle rental with minimum budget and not minimum 3 days.. Many thanks before
