We will arrive Andalsnes by train the evening of 7 May, and catch the Flåm train toward Bergen the afternoon of 16 May. In between, we would like to take some serious hikes along the fjords, stay on Runde to see the birds, and visit a stave church, preferably the one at Vik.
We travel frugally, so taxis or rent cars are not an option. The campground on Runde is booked with school children during the week, and thus only available to us on the weekend when buses don't run. The owner says he might be able to arrange something, but if he can't, Runde will probably be a no-go.
If it fits, Eplet B&B seems like a nice relatively inexpensive place to stay. (Dorm 200NOK/bed). If there are other similar accommodations in the area, we'd appreciate the recommendation.
We understand that the road from Andalsnes to Geiranger will not be open yet, but that there is a nice hike along the fjord from Geiranger if we can get there.
It's frustrating to plan in this area because distances don't seem to have much direct relation to how long a trip takes or whether it's even possible.
Any itinerary assistance would be greatly appreciated.
