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?
Does anyone know of a coach or bus tour from Alesund to Runde Island during May? I mean by coach or bus, not by boat. I am keen to see the bird life on the island and prefer an organised tour rather than hiring a car.
Also, is May a good time to go to Runde Island, considering the season for breeding, hatching, etc? I have read that some trails are closed at certain times of the year. I am flexible with my dates for travel.
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.
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.
i am going to travel in december with my girl friend, which mean only two of us. So, should i rent a car or taking buses? if i rented a car, i can stay more far away from city centre of tromso, but would it be expensive for two person to rent a car?
I'm visiting my friend who lives in Trondheim next week! she has a car, and she suggested a few ideas -
1. Atlanterhavsroad including Ålesund
2. Helgelandscoast including Namsskogan Arctic wild zoo + Torghatten
3. Lillehammer/Oslo including Hunderfossen familypark and Olympic centre
4. Boattrip to Kristiansund
Personally I love the nature and beautiful views, I've been to Oslo before so I think suggestions number 1, 2 and 4 are the best... she suggests we spend one night in Alesund so we can have time there. She also has a cabin in Helgeland coast but she says we probably have to choose which place to stay... we have only 6.5 days... she also has a cabin at Nerskogen and she thinks we can stay there for a night and maybe could catch the northern light....
This is her itinerary -
Thursday 10.11 - We'll come around 16:00 so we'll spend the day in Trondheim
11.11 - 9.00 Breakfast at Møllenberg bakery
11.00 Check the city; Olav statue, Stiftsgården + Munkholmen
13.00 Coffee/lunch at Bakklandet – The street with old houses
15.00 Ladestien walk + Sponhouse
20.00 City evening
12.11 - 08.30 Breakfast
11.00 Shopping and hopefully farmers market
12.00 What do you wish to do this day? --- I suggest that we take this day for a day trip
13.11 - 9.00 Breakfast
10.30 Orkanger – check Bårdshaug Herregård
13.00 Mountain trip – Chasing Aurora Borealis
14.11 - 9.00 Breakfast
10.00 Dombås/ Hjerkinn (Close to Snøhetta) + checking for musk and small exploration of Norwegian nature
15.11 and 16.11 - road trip to one of the places I wrote before, on the 16.11 we have to come in the evening to Trondheim again beause our flight is at 17.11 in the morning....
What do you think, where is a must place to go? thanks for helping!!
