Hello All, We are an elderly couple in their sixties making our first trip to Norway (after a quick 2-night stay in Copenhagen). We enjoy natural scenery and are looking forward to the seeing the famous fjords of Norway. I would like to hear suggestions and comments on our proposed plan, given below.
Stay two nights in Oslo and then head west, to Bergen and then fly back to Boston from Bergen. Want to do a customized Norway in a Nutshell, with an overnight stay in Flam, followed by a two-night stay in Bergen. I have a few specific questions:
a) Given that we will have 1-2 suitcases to carry around, would it be advisable to use the baggage transport facility between Oslo and Bergen. This would require (as per my understanding) using specific, named hotels. I would prefer to use AirBnB accommodations as they provide better options for self-catering and dining (given that we are vegetarians).
b) Is it a better option to take the train straight from Oslo to Bergen, hire a car in Bergen and do a customized fjords trip (instead of the NIN) for 2 days
As ever, expert advice from this forum is highly appreciated.
