We are a family of 3 (1 teenager) traveling to Norway in June. Our itinerary:
Arrive in Oslo (from US) 15th June,
leave for Bergen via NIN on 17th
back to Oslo on 19th
Leave Oslo for Paris on 22nd
Please let me know your thoughts on this itinerary.
We will buy our own tickets for the NIN, to save money. However, I priced the Interail Norway Pass on Rick's site and it seems by far cheaper than buying the tickets ourselves. From what I can see, only the ferry ride won't be included in the pass. But, now, my head is spinning from all the pricing and I need some help, please! Has anyone used the Interrail Norway Pass and is it less expensive than booking ourselves? We won't be doing too many of the museums in Oslo so I don't want to count on those discounts as making the pass worth the price.
In addition, since we will be taking the train back to Oslo, apart from skipping the ferry, etc., is there a better, more interesting or more efficient way of getting back to Oslo? We would prefer not to fly. I looked into a car rental, but they charge a hefty fee to drop the car off in Oslo.
Thank you and I appreciate all comments!
