My girlfriend and I are headed to Norway this July. Our itinerary is as follows. Could you please critique it?
NYK to Stavanger
Spend 5 nights with Family in Feda, Norway. Plan on touring the area, visiting family and also doing some day trips up to Stavanger.
Fly from Stavanger to Bergen. Spend 3 nights in Bergen
Fly from Bergen to Alesund. Spend 2 nights in Alesund
Fly from Alesund to Tromso, spend 3 nights in Tromso.
Then fly back to NYK.
I keep reading about Lofoten. What would you recommend we cut from above to be able to see some of Lofoten. What island/area in particular? How long should we spend time there?
Also, from any of the areas mentioned above, would we be able to see Trolltunga via a day trip?
Reason we are flying to each place is that it is cheaper and takes less time. Flights are ~$100 per person, as opposed to a couple hundred dollars for a car rental and a multi-hour car drive (although some of the best sights are probably by car). We do not mind renting a car for the day if need be.
