Thanks everyone for posting on my "Oslo to Bergen" and "Norwegian Coastal Voyage vessels". Hopefully I can now finalise my plans for next year.
Rather than flying to Bergen we are flying to Oslo first then taking the train to Bergen before going on the "Classic Explorer" voyage of the Hurtigruten which includes arrival into Oslo from Trondheim in the afternoon, a full day in Oslo and then an early morning flight back to the UK.
We arrive in Oslo on Thursday afternoon and join the Hurtigruten on Sunday evening.
1. Look around Oslo for 2 days then take the train directly to Bergen and join the ship, or:
2. Look around Oslo for one day then go on the "Norway in a nutshell tour", then look around Bergen during the following day before joining the ship in the evening; or:
3. Look around Oslo for one day, then take the train directly to Bergen, then look around Bergen during the following day before joining the ship in the evening; or:
4. Just stay the first night in Oslo then continue with either options 2 or 3.
I'm tempted by options 2 or 3 which means that overall I will have looked around Oslo for 2 days and Bergen for 1 but would appreciate any suggestions.
