My husband and I plan to visit Norway in the month of November (6th -20th)with our 6 year old daughter.We intend to fly to Tromso,rent a car after staying a day in the city, drive to lofoten islands and drive back to Tromso to catch our flight back to Amsterdam.
My questions are..
1.Are there any beautiful towns between Tromso and the islands that we can stop at because we dont really want to drive ard 6/7 hrs straight.thought staying a day somewhere in between..
2. Read in reviews that there is an option to take a ferry to the lofoten islands.Is it possible to get to most of the islands (all the way to Å) on road only?We want to try to be on the road always and not have to get onto a ferry.
3.Will there be any toll on the road that we are required to pay along the way?
4.Is there anywhere else beautiful anyone can reccommend us on where to head?We ve gt 2 weeks and the only thing we have now is to explore the Lofoten Islands.Will 2 weeks in the islands be enough?
5. Any place to recommend on where to stay in lofoten?For now we have Å,Henningsvaer,Reine in our places- to- stay list.
6. What is the weather usually like in november?We have driven in Iceland before.Silly ques but Will the weather be as unpredictable and constantly changing like those of Iceland's ?Or is it different?
Heres thanking everyone in advance for helping us out..Your help would be greatly appreciated...

Thank you Dabs for your detail transportation information from Olden Cruise terminal to Briksdal. Taking the public bus is so cheap and seems easy. Five of us are thinking of doing the same but are concern about the availability. Is there only one bus at each departure time?

I subscribe to Mail Travel, but live in Australia. Would appreciate comments of this 8 day tour incl return flights from London, Tour conducted by Newmarket Holidays.
Fly to Bergen, meet your tour manager and transfer by coach through the spectacular scenery to the idyllic village of Balestrand. Settle in to your room, and acquaint yourself with the beautiful surroundings, before enjoying your first dinner in the hotel.
Today, get to know Balestrand. Since the late 19th Century, Sognefjord has welcomed visitors searching for clear mountain air and enchanting scenery, and whenever you go, the area's natural beauty will enchant you, as will the warmth of the welcome virtually everywhere you go.
Your first included excursion is an unforgettable day trip by boat to the historic trading port of Bergen. Join us to discover a city of cobbled streets and medieval houses with a colourful harbour and open-air fish market. Stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.
The Jostedal Glacier, mainland Europe's largest ice-flow, is a mesmerising sight that dominates the northern landscape beyond the fjords. Our optional visit here is a great opportunity to see the glacier itself and to explore the informative Norwegian Glacier Museum.
Our optional Norway in a Nutshell excursion is an unmissable tour of one of the world's most scenic regions. The day includes a ride on the world-famous Flamsbana line from Myrdal to Flam, a remarkable 20km descent down the steep-sided valley, and a spectacular two-hour cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.
Spend today's optional excursion exploring beautiful Sognefjord and the fascinating Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger, with its fine collection of fishing and 'ice' boats that reflect Norway's age-old interaction with the sea and the fjords.
Spend your final day in Balestrand relaxing as you make the very most of the village and its surroundings. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel at the end of an unforgettable week in one of the world's most beautiful corners.
Transfer back to Bergen airport, and check in for your flight home.

Hello, I definitey need help! We will be visiting Norway for 2 weeks at the end of september. We are planning 1 week in Lofoten and 1 week in the fjords. We are going in norway for hiking and outdoors activities, we will rent a car and would like to have max 2-3 different hotels for 1 week. Around which city will we have the more activities to do at the end of september, Alesund or Bergen? Will the leaves still be in the trees at that time of year? Are we better to go in Lofoten first? Is 1 week in Lofoten too much? Thank you for your help!!!
I cannot find any way to leave Alesund by bus, take a boat/ferry from Hellesylt or Geiranger and then return to Alesund.

Are there any other options ?
Is there any whole day / half day bus trip for sight-seeing at Narvik? If it is available, how much it may cost per person?
I'm staying in Stavanger over the weekend 5th and 6th September. Just wondering if anyone knew of any events happening there that weekend as I like to see new things when staying anywhere?

Thanks very much.
I'm going to make a trip around Norway at the end of August and I'm stuck with the transport from Vik to Balestrand.
I'll be going from Flam to Vik, arriving to Vik at 17.10 but the depart by Norled Express Boat is at 18.00. Because that I won't have enough time to walk around Vik.
There is another way aside from Norled to go from Vik to Balestrand? Like a private hire boat or something?
Thank you so much in advance!

I live in London and would like to do some hiking in Norway next month. My number 1 is the pulpit rock. There is a cheap Ryanair flight that lands in Haugesund but I'm just considering how much it would cost to get to Stavanger. Do you think it would be better to pay for a more expensive flight that lands in Stav, or is there a cheap bus from Haugesund?
Suggestions please :)
I've looked up both flights but advice from someone who has done it would be great
What to pack for July
I will be visiting Norway for around 12 days this September. Could you please give me a brief idea about-
1.) must visit places and activities, which cities I should not miss?
2.) Apart from Norway, Can I cover Denmark or Sweden ( which one of them?) without running around or in any hassle?
3.) How much expenses should I assume for transport, meals and cruise to Fjords(if any) and other activities? If you could give me just a clue!
Thanks already for your time and energy!
