Driving from Trondheim to Lofoten Islands area

Jump to last reply

Hi - just starting to build an itinerary for our upcoming trip to Norway in May or June this year and I have a few questions that I'm hoping you can help me with.

Part of our itinerary includes:
- taking the train from Oslo to Trondheim - spending 1.5 days in Trondheim
- renting a car in Trondheim and driving north in hopes of reaching Lofoten Islands area in one day (note that we are used to very long drives 12 - 17 hours is not a deterrent for us)
- spend one day/one night in area
- drive back to Trondheim - spend night then board Hurtigruten for Bergen the following day.

- would it be better if we took the train from Oslo to Bodo and rented a car in Bodo then took the train back from Bodo to Trondheim - spent some time there and boarded Hurtigruten
- would it be better to board the Hurtigruten in Bodo and do the walking tour of Trondheim

I realize this might be a tad crazy and not relaxing but as mentioned above I've only started researching and am not sure of the real driving distance/time between locations.

Thanks in advance for your thoughts and advice.
