      Hi There,

      I (31yrs) and my wife (30yrs) , along with my Parents (60yrs) (Total 4 people) are planning to visit norway for our vacation next week.(Starting July 15th 2016)

      We all love to travel. We would love to see norway with different means of transport to get around & Air , Road , Ferry & rail. We are not much into hiking & camping but do enjoy places of interest on our way. We are vegetarians and would be preferring to Rent apartments wherever we go, considering there might not be enough options for us eating outside. Also we are comfortable cooking quick meals & pack them for our On the go tours.

      After going through few itineraries and Search I have put down the following plan. Would really appreciate if anybody can let ms know if the plan is smooth & workable. Any suggestions are welcome.

      15th July : 3: 30 AM : New Delhi to Oslo (12 noon , 15th july) (14hrs including stopover)

      overnight stay in oslo.

      16th : Oslo to Svolvaer By Air. (we may have to do this via bodo OR oslo to bodo by air & bodo to svolvaer by ferry). Renting a Car in svolvaer . (expensive?) Overnight in Svolvaer or Kabelvag.

      17th : Driving on E10 , exploring Lofoten on the way to Reine . Overnight in Reine. (Robuer Stay).

      18th : Morning : Moskenes to Bodo Ferry. And then we have to go from BODO to ANDALSNES.

      For this which option should we do :

      A. Bodo to Andalsnes via Trondheim , Dombas BY RAIL (We may do overnight train to reach next morning) OR

      B. Bodo to Trondheim By Air and Trondheim to Andalsnes via Dombas By Rail?

      19th : Renting a Car in Andalsnes to reach Geiranger via trollstigen.

      19th : We will have Car to drive around . Also we can do Geiranger cruise that day. Overnight stay on Geirangerfjord area. (any recommendations?)

      20th : Driving around Geiranger. Stay in Geiranger.

      21st : Driving to Alesund & dropping Car.

      Alesund to Bergen By Air. Overnight stay in bergen.

      22nd : Bergen sighseeing for a day. Overnight stay in bergen.

      23rd : Bergen To Flam (Norway in nutshell). Overnight stay in Flam.

      24th : Flam to Oslo : overnight in Oslo.

      25th : Oslo sightseeing.

      26th ; Morning Flight Back to Delhi.

      We would welcome any suggestions if we are cramping too much or overstaying any place which can be changed. I know its last minute & we have lot of bookings to do in term of transportation & accommodation.

      Oslo Airport transport

    • Norway in a Nutshell - Doing on my own Advice please as left too late !! Thanks

      Norway Jun 27, 2016 at 1:40 AM

      Hi there,

      So Im going to Oslo next week and it has become apparent I have left to too late to book the Norway in a Nutshell tour to do in one day from Oslo! It all hinges on the Myrdal to Flam train being booked out at the time to do it all in one day.

      So I've started to look at it independantly and all seems quite simple but I do have a couple of questions if anyone can help?

      - It looks like I can do this over 2 days but would mean a night in Flam or Voss. Voss it probably going to be easiest so can get the earliest train back to Oslo. Does anyone have any thoughts on Voss or whether should make an effort to stay in Flam. If we stay in Flam we could get there mid afternoon. Can you do any short hikes easily from the centre of town?

      - i have found the cruise website and they seem to offer quite a few ferries from Flam to Gudvangen. I have read I should get on a tourist ferry for views. They seem to operate a new ship which is set up for tourists but all sold out. i am looking at one of the standard ships. Do you know if they all offer outdoor viewing areas?

      - Finally, the only element I cannot book is the bus from Gudvangen to Voss. Do these run in time with ferry arrivals. Also, it is very unlikely but may time the ferry to take train back to Oslo. How long after arrival in Gudvangen should i allow bus to Voss to then take train to Oslo.

      I think it is most likely we will try and go from Oslo to Voss via Myrdal, Flam and Gudvangen in one day and take early train to Oslo so at least get one final afternoon in Oslo.

      All the above means we get one long and short afternoon in Oslo. the final question is the expense doing this trip and shortened time in Oslo worth doing? I think it is but my mate is not sure!

      Thanks for any advice

    • Oslo and day trips

      Norway Jun 30, 2016 at 2:57 PM

      I can book a flight to Oslo in early september for 6 full days. I mostly like nature and want to see beautiful views, but also interested to get to know Oslo. how much time should I stay in Oslo in your opinion? Should I book "Norway in a nutshell" trip? The flight back will be from Oslo too so I can book a round trip but which one? It seems as if it's a lot of rides for 2 day trips but they're going from one place to another and don't have time to stay and visit the cities.... So is it worth it? Or maybe should I book an airbnb for 6 nights in Oslo and take day trips on my own... will it be cheaper?

      I will also be in Trondheim for a week in November to visit a friend of mine and she'll take me to some nice places to see but it will be in the winter so it's probably better if I see some of this beauty in September. But again, I don't want to feel as if I missed getting to know Oslo. I may take a longer trip to Norway next summer for 3 weeks and then I have more time for everything. The question is what to do in this 6.5 days.... Thanks for any help! :)

I am reluctant to name the person here so as to respect their privacy, but would welcome any ideas as to websites/forums where I could trace him? As I said a long shot, but would be great to reply to that letter from the war in person!

      We have never been to Norway but have decided to this christmas. Current schedule allows us to spend a couple of nights in Trondheim as part of our travels and we chosen to do this on 24th / 25th December.

      Hotel is booked (Britannia) which includes breakfast, however they have advised their restaurants will be closed...

      Is it likely that we will find shops / restaurants open on 24th / 25th or do you suggest we fill our bags with food on the 23rd on the way down from Narvik?

      It would be great if someone could give me an idea of what to expect during the Christmas period.

      Hei you all, Norsk people!

      I'm starting to plan my holidays, and Trondhiem seems to be on top at the moment. I've got a friend living there now, and I guess I'd come and see him (sleep for free) and on the way visit the city and the landscapes.

      I've been to Norway before, and now I'd like to see trees with leaves and de-iced mountains and wateralls ;-D

      what would you advise me to visit, concering landscapes and nature. It'd be places reachable by train or by car but not more than a day away, so that would mean dayly excursions.

      And btw, concerning transport, do you have an approximate idea of the cost of renting a car? something like AVIS or if possible cheaper. My friend might be working by the time I'm here (at least he's desperate to find a job... if you know of something, I'll let him know!!)so I'd have to pay the rent ALL myself. Is there any requirement for a foreigner driving in Norway? a special permit?

      oh yes, if you know of any web where I can check for all that informatin, that would be skjempe bra (for) meg.

      Well, takk skal dere ha (is it right?)

      PS: I've forgotten almost all Norks I sad.

      Trondheim in March

      by MattinVA Online Now Jan 14, 2005 at 2:00 PM

      Hello, Myself and a few friends will be travelling to Trondheim in March. We've looked into some different accomodations and the Trondheim Leilighetshotell/Trondheim Apartment Hotel looks quite appealing. However, I'd like to know if anyone has any feedback on this place? How close to the city centre is it? Is it a decent place to stay? Any great things about it? Any horror stories? Also, is the bar and club scene very active this time of the year? I know that we've just missed the International Student Festival, so does the town go back into a deep winter's sleep this time of year? What nights are the bars and clubs particularly active? The only other reservation I have is that we're all Americans and are a bit concerned about the reception that we'll get due to public feelings about the Bush administration, Iraq, etc. We're all pretty non-political easygoing people just looking to explore the world and make new friends. Will the good residents of Trondheim welcome us or shun us and throw drinks in our faces? *laughing* Any feedback on Trondheim tips and recommendations would be much appreciated.

      Hi me again! Sorry to be a pain!!!! We will be leaving our car in Trondheim to catch the train up to Bodo (end of July). I have discovered that there is a car park next to the train station where we can leave it for KON 50 for 24 hours. Does anyone know if we can leave it there for longer say 48 hrs and pay more? Once again I have tried to contact NSB without success. Another thought is leaving it somewhere near by that doesn't have parking restrictions. Anywhere like that in Trondheim or within transport distance from the train station? Many thanks (again) for your suggestions! Truly, they are helping us! x Kiwi
