Could you please offer feedback on my 11 day Norway to Denmark trip in late August / early September? I will be traveling with my husband and 17 year old son. We are independent travels who have been to 40 plus countries and like to sample a little of everything a country has to offer.
Day 1 Depart USA
Day 2 Arrive Bergen 12:15
- Grieg Museum on the way from the airport
(Any chance to make the 13:00 piano recital?)
- Fish Market
- Bryggen Hanseatic Wharf
- Mount Floyen and the Funicular hike down from Promsgate
Day 3 Bergen to Flam via NIN train/bus/ferry route
-Bergen/Vos 08:45-9:56. Vos/Gudvangen 10:10-11:20, Gudvangen/Flam 11:45-14:10
or 12:56-14:15, 14:40-15:40, 15:45-17:50.
Is the later option too tight with just 5 min connection from the bus to the ferry?
Is Bergen worth the few extra hours in the morning?
Day 4 Flam
- train to Berekvam (17min) bike to Flam (1 hr w/o stops)
-Fjord Safari 2hr30min high speed boat though Nærøyfjord

Day 8 Oslo

15:00 overnight ferry to Copenhagen
Day 9 Copenhagen arrive 0945
(I didn’t fully plan yet, but basically the must sees using Rick Steves /Trip Advisor)
Day 10 Copenhagen
Day 11 Copenhagen depart early AM arrive back in US PM
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
