My husband and I, both seniors, plan to visit Norway next year. This will be our first visit to Norway. Tentative plan is to be there from mid May. Is this a good time to visit? Will tourist sites will be open by then?
We plan to be there around 12 nights, flying into Bergen and staying there for maybe 4 nights. Do we need a car in Bergen?
We're thinking of renting a car one day to drive from Bergen to Pulpit Rock. Does this sound feasible?
From Bergen, we're thinking of driving up the west to Sognefjord and Hardanger Fjord. We're not sure how many nights we should stay at these places. We're thinking of 4 nights. Would it be wiser to just stay in one of the fjord towns and then drive around from there? Should we follow a tour or move around on our own?
We're thinking of returning the rental car in either Sonefjord or Hardanger and taking a flight to Oslo to see the capital and maybe spend another 3 nights there.
Does our plan make sense? Suggestions on how to fine tune our schedule would be most appreciated.
Thanks a million!
