I’d like to post our itinerary for review and suggestions. We will be in Norway for 17 days (plus two additional days for travel) in September.
Day 1 arrive Oslo, walk around, maybe one museum and rest up

Day 3- all day kayak on Naeroyfjord, after kayak spend the night in Voss
Day 4- rent a car in Voss and spend the day driving up to Solvorn taking route through Aurlandsvangen to Laerdal overland pass)

Day 7- Drive from Solvorn to Voss using the route 13 option with stop at Hopperstad stave church, return car in Voss and take train to Bergen

Day 10 and 11. Spend nights in Reine. ( i haven’t figured out plan yet for Lofoten Islands)
Day 12- overnight boat to Trumso
Days 13, 14, and 15 in Trumso- plans include a bird and wild life cruise ( half day), one organized aurora search trip and looking for other places where we could see it. I’m open to other suggestions for time in Trumso. Also not sure if we should fly out of Trumso in the evening or morning of the next day
Day 16 & 17 Morning flight to Oslo, and full day -
18- fly home
I welcome comments and suggestions. Is this the right amount of time in each place, is it too much?
