    by

    Geirangerfjorden Feriesenter has rustic cabins and campgrounds, about 2km from Geiranger ferry. The proprietors were very friendly and low-key, and the cabins were clean and had all necessary kitchen equipment. Not all have direct views of the fjord, so it's important to ask about that when reserving.

    Unique Quality: Unbeatable location, right on the banks of the fjord. Also, it's next to the Grande Fjord Hotel, in case you want a nice restaurant meal instead of making your own.

    Directions: Arrive at the Geiranger ferry, then follow the banks away from Geiranger for 2km. You can't miss it.

Eidsdal

by Maria_75

Eidsdal is a little village that lies near Norddalsfjorden in the west of Norway.

This is a place that you will probably see if you want to visit two of the most famous touristattractions in Norway: Trollstigen and Geirangerfjorden.

Bud

by Maria_75

A beautiful little fishing village with the roaring sea as its closest neighbor. A must-see if you are nearby! And you should be, because Bud lies close to cities like Ålesund, Molde, Kristiansund and Åndalsnes.

Amongst the many touristattractions near Bud are "Atlanterhavsveien" (the Atlantic road), "Trollstigen" (the Trolls pass) and many of the fjords, with Geirangerfjorden as the most famous.

Bud is an excellent place to stop if you are on a roadtrip in the west of Norway. Visit Kristiansund and Atlanterhavsveien one day. Sleep in Bud and explore the village, before you continue to Molde, Trollstigen and Geirangerfjorden like we did.

Dalsnibba

by Maria_75

From the Dalsnibba Mountain Plateau, 1495 meters, you have a magnificent view over Geirangerfjorden, the Geiranger valley, and the surrounding mountain areas. This is one of the most important touristattractions in Norway.

The road has 11 hairpin bends and is very narrow and some parts. It is located about 7 km from Geiranger.

geiranger + cabin

by klien

Hello,

We go to Norway on Saturday 19th of August.

During our travel, we plan to hire a small cabin in Geiranger.
Has someone been to the camping Geirangerfjorden feriesenter and hire the small cabin? Or to the fjordencamping?
How was it?

We don't have a car and plan to stay for 5 days in Geiranger and see the surroundings. Is it easy to take buses there? What is nice to see in the surroundings and reachable on foot/or by public transport?

Thanks very much for every answer,

klien

Bodo-Lofoten travel and Bergen-Oslo travel

by rock333

Two questions:

I will be arriving in Bodo in the afternoon and wanted to continue on to the Lofoten Islands. What are the options for travel to Svolear. Are there several options and regular boat schedules or is it like a once a day kind of thing?

I have five days to drive anywhere, starting in Bergen and ending in Oslo. Is it too ambitious to try to make it up to Alesund while hitting Aurland, Jotunheimen, Jostedalsbreen, and Geirangerfjorden?

Thanks for your help!

1) You should check www.hurtigruten.no, they operate the Bodø-Svolvær route. They leave once every day. I'm not sure if there are other ferries...

2) It sounds kind of ambitious but not impossible. I guess it depends if you want to see these places or just drive by. I think www.naf.no still have a distance calculator, but I'm not sure if they have an english service on their pages.

You can drive to Ålesund in one day, and one day Ålesund - Oslo too. That is if you drive hard....
3 days extra gives you the chance to peace it up a bit. I would use 3 days Bergen - Ålesund and 2 days Ålesund - Oslo.
Have a great trip,
David

Fjords of Norway

by dandoodle

I want to see the fjords of Norway. I've been looking at the Hurtigruten Norwegian coastal voyage, Bergen to Kirkenes. Is this the best way to see the fjord? Any suggestions for the best fjord journey? What month is the best to do this trip? Thanks, Dan

Re: Fjords of Norway

Hi

Although Hurtigruten offers a wonderful experience, it does not actually enter the fjords. (Except Geiranger-fjord Northbound in the summer). If seeing the fjords is your maine priority, you could either chose one area like Sognefjord and make day-trips or look into what a company like, Fjord Travel has to offer:

http://www.fjordtravel.no/index.html

IMO late May/begging of June is when the fjord-land is at it's most beautiful.

Re: Fjords of Norway

by hexelein

As has been pointed out, you do not actually enter the fjords themselves with Hurtigruta, but you do get to see nearly the entire western coast line, which is quite an experience, I should imagine (I've only ever seen bits and bobs here and there). Unless you are dead set on seeing a fjord start to finish (so to speak), I would definitely go for Hurtigruta.

Actually, come to think of it, you could start off in Bergen, take a one day fjord cruise there, and then do the Hurtigruta. Hardanger is about 1 hour from Bergen (see for instance Nor-Way Bussekspress; http://www.nor-way.no) and it is a gorgeous sight when the cherry trees are in bloom (late May / early June).

Obviously it depends on how much time and money you can spend. I'm Norwegian and I've never had the opportunity to travel with Hurtigruta, as it is too expensive.

Re: Fjords of Norway

Actually the Hurtigruten company, the one that runs the coastal liners, has a tour by the m.v. FRAM from Dover, England, leaving April 9th, to the Norwegian fjords Hardangerfjorden, Sognefjorden, Geirangerfjorden and Nordfjord, calling Stavanger, Eidfjord, Flåm, Gudvangen, Ålesund, Geiranger, Olden and Bergen, and arriving Oslo April 18th. I don't think that tour is fully booked.
Day 1: Dover
Day 2: At sea (North sea)
Day 3: Stavanger
Day 4: Ulvik, Eidfjord, Hardangerfjorden
Day 5: Flåm, Nærøyfjorden, Gudvangen, Sognefjorden
Day 6: Ålesund, Geiranger, Geirangerfjorden
Day 7: Olden, Nordfjord, Hyenfjorden
Day 8: Bergen
Day 9: At sea (Skagerrak)
Day 10: Oslo
