    • 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! :)

      Costings

      by mccrorj Online Now Jun 2, 2007 at 11:07 AM

      I have just read the costs of basic items in Oslo and was wondering if they are comparable with Haugesund. Having never travelled in Norway I was keen to visit but a little daunted by the costs suggested for Oslo. I'm looking for cheapish hotel and ideas for food prices, clearly an idea of how much a beer is likely to cost would be appreciated. The last question I had was about transport, can anyone advise me how easy it is to make the journey from the airport to either Haugesund itslef or alternatively to Bergen.

      I'm going to Haugesund for 2 nights in January.

      1) Can you tell me what are the interesting things to do or visit there? I only have 2 days to go around, and don't have a car. So, I'm just thinking about the city center area (anywhere within walking distance or short bus ride).

      2) I heard about the Viking Village, how do I get there and is it worth a visit?

      Hi All
      We are flying into Haugesund in late August for 2 nights and are interested in seeing Glaciers, pulpit or Preekstoel and Kayaking. We are really keen on spending a day up a fjord kayaking but cant seem to find anyone hiring kayaks out. We are not particularly fussed if we don't stay in Haugesund so if you can suggest a good campsite or B&B that is central to our interests that would be great. Local area maps anyting would be good.
      Take care of yourselves and thanks for your responses in advance.
