We're planning a family trip with three kids (12, 10, 7) to Norway in August that's spurred by an invite from friends to visit them in Tromso. I would love to hear whether we're trying to cram too much into the trip or whether we're prioritizing the wrong things. Any other ideas are appreciated.
Here's a rough itinerary:
Day 1: Arrive early morning in Bergen, light sightseeing, recoup from flight
Day 2: Norway in a Nutshell tour, but not returning to Bergen. Either stay at a pleasant town in the area or perhaps drive to Borgund to see stave church the following morning.
Day 3: Work our way north through Jotunheimen National Park toward Gerainger (possible visit Lom stave church if preferable to Borgund or more convenient for travel purposes)
Day 4: Geraingerfjord and then travel to Alesund.
Day 5: Fly from Alesund to Tromso
Days 6 and 7: Visit friends in Tromso
Day 8: Fly to Bergen to USA.
