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?
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'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!!

The best flights from where I live in US are routing me through Oslo then to Tromsø for one week (February). Are there things to do in Tromsø for a week (if NL are not visible ) ? Is it better to just stay a few days in Tromsø then travel to another city in Scandinavia?
Is it recommended to pack one's own gear for the NL excursions or go with a provider who has the equipment? I come from a warm climate so wondering if just one NL excursion might be best or are the temps manageable with appropriate gear?
How are flights in and out of Tromsø (weather delays)?
Getting around Tromsø what are recommended boots for walking if icy ?
Thanks :) ~
