We're from all around the world so thought I'd ask! Beats asking friends and family who have never been but think they know everything!

Going for a few days in October if anyone would like to share experiences :) :)

I'm not from there nor have I ever been, but I did recently travel aboard by myself and learned that being a tourist is ok and planning your trip down to last detail is a waste of time. Also, international data plan is a  blessing: GPS for navigating the city, internet to find tourist locations and/or buying tickets, and calling/texting to family/friends (I was alone and needed morale support).

have fun :)

I went to Bergen in 1975!! It was ... beautiful, a cluster of wooden houses on steep hillsides ... and very expensive ... ... and I don't think either of those things have changed much ...

I have also visited Norway several times, from Sweden. Norway is very beautiful and people are still very kind, ( I hope ). I guess almost everone speaks English very well. And it's very expensive. Alcohol is expensive.

I jave visited Narvik in the north, Oslo, and Trondheim. Also been driving in south of Norway.

In countries like Sweden, Denmark and Norway people will easily speak English with you. I know people who live in Oslo and Bergen ( or close ).  My friend in Bergen is extremely interested in outdoors and nature experience, climbing mountains ( like in Norway ). Feel free to write to me!

Norwegian Airlines is famous for their cheap, but OK flights. Everyone seems to use them.

I went to Trondheim in 1979! Backpacking, camping and Inter-Railing around Europe, we stopped off at Trondheim starving hungry after a night on the train. Went to a very friendly cafe and fortified ourselves with a lovely meal which included the best meatballs we'd ever tasted! Nice buildings and a great cathedral. We were there in early September and it was quite cold already. The Norwegian train we travelled on from Oslo was fantastic - super clean and well appointed. After that we took the train across Norway to Sweden (great scenery). That was such a long time ago - would love to go to Scandinavia again some day and visit friends there.

Hope you enjoy your trip :)

It's a very beautiful place and the people are sincere and open.  There's no place you should not go !  But......everything is pricey !

Thanks guys - looking forward to it!

Kind of hoping October is cold, but at the same time really want to be able to make the most of seeing the beautiful scenery

Sounds like the kind of country you can enjoy without having to plan too much. Food sounds fab - we are definitely ready for the cost, we just decided that it'd be worth it after seeing the photographs. I can't wait :)

Then you have the old classical Hurtigruten. A famous cruise. You can go just a few stops or all the way.

We are taking a Hurtingruten cruise in January and February as my husband wants to see the Northern Lights.  I hope we don't freeze!  I enjoyed reading the above comments, too.
