A Week in Norway - Itinerary Help

Jump to last reply

We will be spending 8 days in Norway, flying in and out of Oslo. We want to see Oslo, Bergen, Alesund and Geraingerfjord. We are not doing Norway in a Nutshell (because we want to take our time rather than rushing through all of the destinations in two days), but we do plan to use public transportation to get around.

So far, I figure that we'll spend two days in Oslo (arrive in the afternoon and then one full day). The next day, we will take the train to Bergen - I understand it's supposed to be a very scenic train ride. Spend the day in Bergen, and set out the next day.

My question is: where do we go from there? Is there an easy way to get to Geiranger and take a fjord cruise from there and then on to Alesund? Or should we go straight to Alesund and see the fjord via a day cruise from there? Are there scenic routes we can take between these destinations by train or bus or ferry?

Also, is there any way to fit in the famous Flam railway, either on the way to Alesund or on the way back to Oslo?
