Hello experts and fellow travelers,
Would appreciate suggestions and recommendations for a three night stay in Bergen as part of a Scandinavian trip. We are a family of five, all above 30, and are looking forward to enjoying the famous fjords (first time visitors to Norway). We are not into hiking and similar activities but are looking more for scenic drives, walks and general peace and quiet in the scenery. Arriving around midday in Bergen (by Air) on Sep 1, and leaving for Oslo by train on Sep 4. Would appreciate views on:
a) doing day trips through a rental car with Bergen as the base
b) doing the same road trip as a longer loop with one night en route, outside Bergen
c) how much time should we budget to spend in Bergen town itself (half a day to walk around and do the funicular)?
d) if we get a good view of the fjords during our Bergen stint, could we skip the Norway-in-a-Nutshell and go straight to Oslo from Bergen by train with no stopping at Flam, Myrdal, etc.
Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
