Transportation around Norway

Four of us are planning to travel to Norway in June or July. We'll fly into Oslo and need transportation to Bergen, then to Alesund, then to Ringbu and finally back to Oslo. We have ancestors from each of these places. Any suggestions for how we can get around the easiest? We could rent a car, but prefer to not have to drive ourselves. Thank you.

Some general info:

From Bergen to Ålesund you can also combine express boat and express bus (somewhat more cumbersome but more varied sights).

Train Oslo-Bergen and Åndalsnes-Ringebu-Oslo is definitly nice, but a car gives you greater freedom to experience sights beyond the transport corridors. Particularly the Åndalsnes area is magnificent:

Renting a car is expensive, but four persons to share.

Consider a detour to Flåm ("nutshell" trip).
