2 weeks in Norway in May, need itinerary help!

Jump to last reply

My hubby and I will be visiting Norway in mid-May for our 10-year anniversary. We got a cheap airfare from LAX-Oslo for $500 round-trip. I haven't done a lot of research but know that I would like to include the Lofoten islands. I have mobility issues (can't walk much) so we are very interested in biking and kayaking. Here's what I have for an itinerary so far.

Day 1 - arrive Oslo 5:30 PM
2 - Oslo
3 - Oslo - Bergen via train
4 - Bergen
5 - Board Hurtigruten Northbound
6 - Hurtigruten
7- Hurtigruten
8 - Depart Hurtigruten in Svolvaen or (?). Pick up rental car.
9 - Lofoten
10 - Lofoten
11 - Lofoten
12 - Lofoten
13 - Lofoten
14 - Fly from Lofoten back to Oslo for 6:30 PM flight

I am wondering about the time we are on the Hurtigruten cruise. Will we see spectacular fjord scenery on this part of the "cruise?"

Also, should we stop in Flam for a day? Are we spending too much time in Lofoten for this time of year? I've read it could still be very cold.This doesn't bother us, but we're wondering if it's likely we'll be able to rent bikes/kayaks this time of year.

Suggestions on what to add if our priorities are seeing, biking, kayaking and cruising through gorgeous scenery are our top priorities.
