Hi, Anita: I appreciate your prompt response to my question about the car ferries in Norway. We plan to drive to Bergen after completing the ferry ride on the fjord in the afternoon in mid-Sept. We have paid lodging reserved so definitely do not want to miss the journey on the fjord which we expect to be a highlight of my Norway experience.
We will be in Laerdalsoyri 2 nights before the fjord boat trip. To get to Kaupanger to board the ferry through the fjord, it appears we must cross the fjord by another ferry. Are we correct in assuming that will be a car ferry also or must we drive a longer route to get to Kaupanger with our car?
When you were driving in Norway did you notice traffic being heavier on weekend days. As we will be making this fjord journey on a Sat., we are wondering if the traffic on the roads will slow our progress getting from town to town.
Did you drive from Lom down through the mountains to Sogndalsfjora on Route 55? We are wondering about the road conditions on that route. We are also planning to drive the Snow Route from Laerdalsoyri to Aurland and would appreciate input on those driving conditions.
Did you get much rain while in Norway? Was there a lot of snow in the mountains?
It is interesting that you are responding from Long Beach. Two of my travel group live in San Diego County and one is from Santa Monica.
Thanks again for your assistance and advice.
