I'm just starting the research on a trip to Iceland and Norway for this August. My husband is going to run a marathon in Reykjavik on August 19th so we will arrive in Iceland a couple days before that and stay 3 or 4 full days after - then hop on a plane to arrive in Oslo around noon.
For the Norway portion of the trip, I'm tentatively thinking that we'd want a couple nights (up to 3) in Oslo and then head to see some nature/fjords. It looks like the NIN may be a good option for us but we wouldn't want to do it all in a single day. We can fly home from Bergen. Looks like the flight we'd take is about 3:30pm.
So my questions are more about where to stay after Oslo. After Oslo, I'd be looking for light hikes, maybe some kayaking, or just some beautiful places to photograph. I was thinking about staying somewhere for a couple nights near fjords - maybe Flan? and then maybe staying a few more nights in Bergen - but am open to other places as well. I'd be open to renting a car in Bergen if there are places relatively nearby (i.e., within a couple hours) that we can't easily get to via public transportation. I would have about a week after Oslo. Any suggestions?
