NORWAY TRIP REPORT AND TRAVEL ITINERARY

Here a bit from the Norway trip report that contains a lot of travel information about destinations, weather, etc... and some silly anecdotes about our journey too.
"Along the fjord we saw mountains, waterfalls and picturesque villages. It was an amateur photographer’s paradise: in order to take a good picture, it was sufficient to point the camera in a random direction and shoot."
"Myrdal was the smallest village you can imagine. It was practically uninhabited, still covered by impressive amounts of snow. It seemed to be in Siberia, or perhaps in Norway."

NORWAY TRAVEL INFO

Why? Well, I am not disclosing any confidential information if I write that people looking for spectacular fjords and pristine natural landscapes will really enjoy Norway.
When to go? Summer is the best season, unless you are interested in sleigh rides and cross-country skiing. In the South, spring should be nice too: in Bergen it rains 400 days a year (a statistical impossibility that amazes scientists), but April and May are typically the driest months. So, depending on your travel itinerary, a bank holiday at the beginning of May could be a good opportunity to visit the city and the surrounding wilderness.
Norway travel itinerary map How? From Europe it is easy to get to Norway by an inexpensive low-cost flight (and, optionally, you can use a domestic flight to go from the north to the south of the country and viceversa). Once in Norway, I recommend renting a car in order to travel in freedom (traffic is almost non-existent in this lucky country). Public transportation is efficient and expensive.
How much? Norway is an expensive country. Sleeping and eating can make you spend respectively 80 € per night (for a “cheap” double room) and 30 € per meal. Bars, supermarkets and hostels may help you saving some money. Car rental is cheaper than public transport for two passengers or more.

Where? Bergen and the fjords. A simple and beautiful travel itinerary.
Where else? Throughout Norway, and especially along the coasts, there are many paradisiacal landscapes that deserve to be visited. North Cape may be the final destination of a longer travel itinerary.
