I'm doing my own routing to approximate the Norway in Nutshell from Bergen to Oslo. And could use some input.
I'm trying to decide if I should deviate from the NiN route at Voss station and take local bus 970 north to Vik. I can visit the Hopperstad stave church and then take the Express boat over to Balestrand. Has anyone experience with the 970 local bus from Voss to Vik?
Unfortunately, I'm planning only one night in Balestrand and then taking the NorLED express from Balestrand to Flåm and connecting on to the Flåmsbana train and back to Oslo. This will get us into Oslo at 22:27.
Do the more traditional NiN route via Gudvangen and the Nærøyfjord cruise to Flåm and back to Oslo. I found that by booking it on my own, I can overnight in Gudvangen, catch an early Nærøyfjord cruise to Flåm and get on the earlier Flåmsbana train and arrive back to Oslo by 19:05.
So, which route will provide more impact for my limited time? I know I have to make a choice since I can't have it all.
That leaves us either 2 days in Oslo before heading home or 1 day followed by taking the overnight ferry down to Copenhagen and spending a day there first. So many choices, too little time.
