Hi! We're still trying to figure out our trip to Norway and I know we're cutting it short as its in mid June. We have the bulk of our stay booked in Sogndal. But haven't booked our day we arrive in Bergen yet. (We are having a hard time finding a reasonable hotel. There are 5 of us, and one kid is fine sleeping on the floor, but its hard to find a hotel room with 2 double beds!). And we haven't booked the extra day before our Sogndal time and after. We are trying to decide, do we stay in Flam on our way to Sogndal or stay in the islands around the entry of the Sognefjord first. The other we can fit in the last day before we leave.
I saw the day trip explained by the Eplet's Norway in an Apple Box, but it seems very ambitious for our second day after travels. But just going to Balestrand seems too simple. And we want to get a taste of the islands/coastal Norway. We don't like shopping towns, we want to explore the scenery.
So, any tips on doing the island stuff first, and how to modify it. Or do the scenic railway first? And whenever we do Flam, should we stay a night in that town or a nearby town?
