    Stavanger Transportation

    I thought the Ullandhaug Tower would be nice to visit, but how to get there? The tourist information centre helped me with that. All we had to do was walk a little past the Breivatnet which is on FV447, and there was a bus stop on the near the corner of FV447 & FV444. [check google maps] This was STOP 8, and we had to catch BUS 4B to take us...

    We took the ferry from Bergen to Stavanger. That is easy to do, brings you from one city center to the other. Its a 4 hour trip by catamaran.

    We traveled by Ryanair to Haugesund (actually Helganes) airport in September 2005.

I have placed the following information in a travelogue under Stavanger, Norway (as it was our base). It...

  • City Bikes and bike lift

    We were more than surprised when we saw this bicycle lift - the first one of its kind in the whole world. You have to obtain a key card in the bicycle repair shop in the same street where the lift starts, then insert the key card and thave the lift get you up the pretty steep hill! We met this one man who had so much fun using the lift, that he...

    Bergen Transportation

    The wonderful Norway in a Nutshell trip ends with a train ride from Voss to Bergen. The ride was quite nondescript save for the typical Scandic countryside scene of grazing cows.

    Bergen Transportation

    To make a complicated theme easy: Don't park on the street in Bergen! The rules are complicated, and mostly you are simply not allowed if you don't have a special permit issued to residents. Except for a very few parking meters, you will for sure get a high parking ticket. The solution is to simply use the very good parking houses and pay the fee...

  • Driving between Oslo and Trondheim

    I'm sure other forms of transport in Norway are excellent, but my favourite way to travel anywhere (bad, I know, for the planet) is by car. You set your own schedule; you can stop wherever and whenever you want; and if you see something which appeals, you can visit. The road between Oslo and Trondheim is stunning (and it gets better as you go on...

    This is one of the most beautiful scenery railway lines I've ever traveled with. The journey takes around 7 hours for 500 km which is very good as if you travel by car it will take you the same time due to the mountain roads. The price of a single one way ticket could start from 25 to 60 EUR depending on when you buy the ticket. I took the train...
