      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 8 hours ago

      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.

    • A trip from Trondheim

      Norway Nov 4, 2016 at 11:55 PM

      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

      5. Røros

      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

      12.00 Nidarosdomen

      13.00 Coffee/lunch at Bakklandet – The street with old houses

      14.00 Festningen

      15.00 Ladestien walk + Sponhouse

      17.00 Dinner

      20.00 City evening

      12.11 - 08.30 Breakfast

      10.00 Theisendammen

      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!!

      Jetty in Larvik

      Larvik Jun 12, 2010 at 1:58 AM

      HI there,

      I am going to hike to Kjerag this coming August. My initial plan was to go to Stavanger from Oslo and then take a ferry to Lysebotn upon arriving in Stavanger. Unfortunately, i was told no ferry service wil be offered during August period and going to Lysebotn from Larvik by ferry is the only alternative for independent traveller.

      So, i would love to inquiry on the name of jetty in Larvik where ferry service to Lysebotn is offered. On top of that, how far is that jetty from Larvik train station?

      I really hope you guys can help me to solve these problem. I have planned this trip for abt 2 months but nothing useful is found.

      Lastly, thanks in advance. Your help will definitely liven up my trip in Norway! and i love Norway so much !

      Thanks and Regards,

      Stavern - Accommodation

      Vestfold Mar 5, 2004 at 5:44 PM

      Hi! Well here's that accommodation question that I promised you. I'm traveling with my parents to the Larvik area for about a week to visit friends - but we are on a limited budget and will most likely be staying in Stavern. Unfortunately while looking at accommodation a lot of it is in Norwegian without an English translation. There is an accomodation that was suggested in the Norway Lonely Planet: "Fredtun Folkehoyskole" - - it seems to be a high school - does that mean they let out dorm rooms in the summer (planning to be there last week of August) - if anyone can help me with a translation (looking mainly for prices for a double and a single) that would be greatly appreciated. Also there's another place 'Solplassen and Rakke Camping' - - can anyone tell me the details for a 2/4 man cabin and how much it costs. Thanks if you can help! :) Cassie
