      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?

      Tour from Alesund to Runde Island

      Ålesund Nov 6, 2016 at 4:33 AM

      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.

      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.

      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.

    • Real North Cape

      by ministercbc Online Now Jun 2, 2014 at 8:18 PM

      I'm seeking information on the hike to the real North Cape, about 9 km off of E69. We are coming in on a cruise, arriving at 8 a.m., getting a rental car at 8:30, and I'm guessing we could be at trail head, parking area by 9:15. Is it realistic to make the hike from there in 2.5 hours, and 3 hours on the return to the car, back to car say by 2:45? Can you get further down the trail in a car to drop off hikers, shortening the hike by a mile or two? answer to email

      by zemann Online Now Apr 18, 2013 at 6:15 AM

      Hi everyone. I'm trying to plan a trip to nordkapp for this summer, with public transports. So these are my questions:
      1. does the bus Nordkappekspressen (between Narvik and Alta, then to Honningsvag) still exist? because I cannot find any info on the internet.
      2. if it doesn't run anymore, what are my concrete options to reach Alta (excluding flights, if possible)?

      Nordkapp - worth the visit?

      by bavchy Online Now Jul 29, 2009 at 1:40 PM

      Hello! I'll be in northern Finland for a week. I'm thinking about visiting the North Cape. But with public transportation and 1 night at a hostel, I would spend 200€ for 2 days. I'm thinking it's way to expensive and I'm not sure if I should go... What do you think? I'd just like to hear a few opinions...

    • Travel to Knivskjellodden

      by emo1truth Online Now Dec 30, 2007 at 6:11 AM


      I will be traveling to Norway at the end of June and want to hike to the most northern point if Knivskjellodden. My question is what's the best way to get there from Bergen?

      1) Should we fly to Hammerfest and then take a ferry to Honningsvåg?
      2) Should we fly to Honningsvåg directly?
      3) Once in Honningsvåg or anywhere else on the north cape, how do we actually get to the trailhead?
      4) If by bus, is there a website we can access to make reservation?
      5) How many days should we allow?

      Thank you so much,

    • How to Get Nordkapp from Rovaniemi,or Finnish Lapland

      by BirisFlamencoTriana Online Now Aug 8, 2006 at 7:42 PM

      I am planning my visit to Scandinavia, (I´m leaving on next Friday!). I will start in the south of Sweden (Sverige!), then will go to Finland, and after that, I will travel to the north, with the idea of visiting first Finnish Lapland and from there getting to NordKapp and Lofoten islands, before travelling south in the west coast.

      So, to sum up, I will be in north of Finland, (probably Rovaniemi, or Kemi) when I have to get Nordkapp-taking into account that I wont have/use a car.

      I would appreciate a lot any info with regard to this question; I'm also lost about accommodation in the area; actually, I`ve just discovered its not so easy to find cheap places, b&b, hostels, or just places to sleep in the area.

      Thanks so much for your help!

    • Taking a bike to Nordkapp

      by kirandulas Online Now Jul 17, 2004 at 3:08 PM

      I'm starting to plan a cycle ride starting in May next year which should take me from Nordkapp to Sicily (or maybe Gibraltar; not decided yet). Can anyone give any advice on the quickest/easiest way to get from say Oslo to Nordkapp with a bike? Due to limited time, I sadly can't afford to cycle all the way up there, but I expect I'll probably have to do at least the last bit. I have come across some information that says bikes can be taken on buses, but on the other hand I've read that about other countries as well where it's simply not true. Any help very welcome!
