campgrounds in West Norway - Bergen and North

Hi Guys,
We plan to travel mid-May from Hamburg to Bergen and North, by a motorhome.
1. Any good tips for such trip?
2. Is there any list of campgrounds or we find as we go? Do we have to make reservations?
3. How far up is to the great falls? How far up is the weather reasonable (+5 and up)?
4. Any good ferry trip to take along the shores?
Thanks,
Ilan

Rick's Scandinavia guidebook happens to list a few campgrounds around the fjords, but that's not his focus. See http://www.visitnorway.com/us/where-to-stay/camping-and-caravanning-in-norway/ for more in that country, as well as resource links at http://www.ricksteves.com/travel-tips/sleeping-eating/camping. The end of June is high season for midnight-sun travelers to Norway, so I expect that you won't need reservations in mid-May, but that's a guess.

Hey!

Your plan sounds like it is going to be an awesome trip. I would recommend Lofoten islands when you head up to Norway. The trip i made last summer was amazing and definitely worthy to catch the midnight sun. The planned and got tips for my tracks from suggestions given by this site. http://www.exploranor.com/ They are a small travel agency that specializes in hiking around in Lofeton. They have guided hikes around Lofoten if you are interested, but good site for tips too :D

Hope you have a good trip!
