Hoping you can help, please. I've put together a rough itinerary for my Norway trip in May. Some background info:
- First visit to Norway with partner.
- Need to rely on public transport.
- We enjoy great food (particularly food unique to the region), leisurely 'hikes', beautiful scenery - generally taking it easy in amazing places.
- My itinerary is below. Days 1,2, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 are locked in (ie we have accom/travel booked). For Days 3-6 we are researching where to stay, would love some advice please. Once itinerary is firmed up we will book NIN train tickets as I know these can be cheaper when bought in advance:
Day 1: Arrive Oslo early afternoon. Go straight to hotel, rest, early night.
Day 2 (Sunday): Full day Oslo. Kon Tiki museum, Sculpture Park, Pascal Bakery, check out Opera House, etc. Anything else you suggest for Oslo (assuming shops will be shut on Sunday?).
Day 3: Begin DIY Norway in a Nutshell trip. Suggestions for first stop/overnight stay?
Day 4: NiaN. Suggestions for overnight stay?
Day 5: NiaN. Suggestions for overnight stay?
Day 6: NiaN. Suggestions for overnight stay?
Day 7: Aurland (hikes, hot tub, visit cheese farm etc).
Day 8: Aurland (as above)
Day 9: Aurland to Bergen (what is the best way to get there - is it just to continue along the NiaN traditional route i.e. Flam to Bergen?). Remainder of day in Bergen - Bryggen, etc.
Day 10: Full day Bergen (Floibanen, leisurely hikes, lunch etc).
Day 11: Fly to next destination.
