In August 2014 my family of four (kids 9 and 6 at time of trip) will be going to Norway, Sweden, and Iceland for three weeks. I have started making reservations for the trip. I've had great luck with booking.com for many of the hotel reservations, but I wanted to try the Oslo Package offered by the TI because it is supposed to be a good deal for families with younger kids.
I went to the visitoslo.com site, but only brought up two results for my booking search, and I have to believe there are more than two places that could accommodate my family! The cheaper result didn't include a buffet breakfast, only a breakfast sandwich and OJ dropped at your door, and the other hotel that did include a breakfast buffet was much too expensive (about $350 a night).
My question: is it better to book the Oslo Package through one of the travel agents like Rick suggests in the Scandinavia guide, or should I just book a room separately using booking.com or another general booking site and just buy the Oslo Pass separately?
