      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.

      visitnorway.com/listings/gla...

      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 planning on doing NIN starting in Bergen and winding up in Voss. Once there I am considering renting a car for about 2 days. Any good suggestions as to where to go in that amount of time. I will have done the southbound cruise from Kirkenes to Bergen.

      day in Voss

      by ynnpar Online Now Jan 30, 2008 at 9:21 AM

      3 of us will be in Voss for a day in Mid-March; the intent is to do some skiing. But I'm just wondering if it might be interesting to do some snowshoeing there? Does anyone snowshoe around there, or does everyone just use skies and snowboards? Anyone know if you can rent snowshoes? We're not packing much for this trip and I'd like to avoid having to bring mine. Thanks.

      Anyobdy would like to join me in Voss, Norway?

      by suzie1976 Online Now May 22, 2007 at 2:36 AM

      Hello everyone, I’ll be going to Norway on the 01 of June to visit my boyfriend. He is staying in Ulvik – about 3 hours drive from Bergen. It’s a huge farm with beautiful scenery. Selling flower is one of the family main income, so you will see lotsa beautiful flower at the farm too! Not only that, he had a family cottage up in the mountain. It definitely a nice place to go for a swim during the summer. Was wondering if anybody will be interested to join us? We can have BBQ during the night, drink at the verandah, just chill out at the garden, or up the hill to the cottage to have a swim there. Sometimes the house can be quite quiet especially during the night so it will be nice to meet some people and talk about anything! Oh ya.. no worries there will be enough room for at least 10 persons.

      Anybody interested?

      When Does the Serious Weather Arrive?

      by TheSingingPostman Online Now Nov 25, 2006 at 4:18 AM

      Would it be crazy of me to visit Voss in the first half of December to go hiking in the forests? I mean, if I arrive in three weeks' time, will the first heavy snow already have fallen, making forest walking impossible? And if the snow hasn't arrived yet, will it nevertheless be VERY VERY COLD during the day, making hiking a miserable experience? If anyone can advise me, I'd be very grateful. I'd hate to waste my money by booking myself onto the ferry in advance, only to find most of Hordaland buried under snow when I arrived (or being drenched by freezing rain).
