      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.

    • Hamar transportation help

      by stenben Online Now Jun 20, 2005 at 9:24 AM

      Help!

      We are planning to pass through Hamar, arrive 2110 and then catch a flight from Oslo at 07:15 to meet cousins in Stavanger.

      We booked hotel in Hamar because my grandmother was born there (then moved to Oslo). We just wanted to drive around, then leave early in the morning.

      I misread the bus schedule and now see that it stops in Hamar only to allow disembarkation.

      Does anyone have idea of how to best see the town (taxi?, anyone know a local guide?) and how to get to airport on a Sunday morning? Should we go back to Mjosbrua Vest for the bus or is there any shuttle service all the way to the airport.

      We are 3 so splitting the cost will help.

      Thank you,

      Susan
