  1. Which do you think would be nicer?
  2. Want to see Northern Lights. But also want to cover: Oslo, Bergen, Tromso, (Copenhagen, Stockholm). Would you add in Bodo/Lofoten Islands/Trondheim? Which Fjord would you see? Thanks!

Be aware that Norwegians enjoy their holidays with Christmas and Easter being big. While I can't speak to Christmas, Norwegians travel during Easter with heavy travel Palm Sunday weekend with Norwegians leaving the cities and returning Easter Monday. Oslo starts to shut down the Wednesday evening before Maundy Thursday and businesses will be either shut or on very reduced hours during the 5 day Easter weekend period.
