My wife and I are planning a trip to Norway in July and we're planning to see as much nature as possible. I've heard that the Norway in a nutshell tour is amazing and I would like to do roughly something similar but DIY instead of the tour itself. We're coming up from Gothenburg around roughly 12th of July and going to stay over in Oslo and then leave from there heading to Bergen.
My question is; we're looking at getting the Scandinavian rail pass, would this enable us to get off the train at Flam and spend the night there before continuing on to Bergen?
We also don't really want to take the train from Oslo to Bergen and then again back from Bergen to Oslo. We were thinking of doing something more like a circular route rather than backtracking the rail we already came on. Does anyone have any suggestions for us?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so very much!
