      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?

      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.

      Looking for a museum or archive for Telemark and a hotel/B&B in Seljord and Kviteseid.

      Telemark Jan 4, 2016 at 2:19 PM

      I am visiting in August and looking for a museum and archive in Telemark to search for info on my ancestors. Also, suggestions on things to see, a hotel with a restaurant or B&B in Seljord and Kviteseid. I have looked on the internet and found very little. These must be remote areas but, I wish to stay in, or near, these towns to get a first hand feeling.
      My two great grand parent's names are; Gullick (Gunleik) Egilsen born Kleven, Seljord Telemark fylke, Norway and his wife Ingeborg Olsdatter Qualset born, Nystuel, Kviteseid, Telemark. I will likely be traveling by train from Oslo and then renting a car in Bo or Notodden. All comments, suggestions and input is greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chuck Johnson

      Drangedal Dec 23, 2011 at 8:25 AM

      Hi members of the forum

      I arrive with my kids in Oslo on the 25th and will take the train to Drangedal. My end destination is Hotel Gautefall and I need to know how to get from Drangedal to Gautefall on Xmas day!!! Can I pre-book a taxi?? Are there buses? I am having difficulties translating the Norwegian websites... Maybe giving you some times will help: Arrive Drangedal 17.45...

      The train tickets are quite expensive! Wondering if hiring a car is not a better option :)

      Please help. This link (in English) is very helpful for train times and costs: - just click on the British flag...

      how to find Vrådal in the VT-search-machine ?

      Telemark Jun 28, 2011 at 3:01 PM

      Vrådal - thats a small village in Telemark and obviously there must be a way to transfer that "å" into 1 or 2 other letters, so the VT-searchmachine would accept it like it accepts only ue for the german letter ü
