Norway and maybe Denmark

Jump to last reply

I am considering a tour of Norway for which consists of 8 nights accommodation. As with alot of tour companies there is no actual sightseeing on the 1st and last days ( 1 and 9).
For someone travelling solo this trip is about $330 dollars a day with no sightseeing on days 1 and 9. I have listed options below, and with Norway being epensive as it is, cost is an obvious consideration. I will have atleast 17 days starting frm the last week in August, so hopefully the europe holiday crowds will have dissipated. Any thoughts on my ideas are appreciated!

Option 1

1) Do the 9 day tour and have extra nights in Oslo, maybe the Norway in a nutshell tour aswell with other activities

2) Use public transport ie travelling between towns cities and base myself for multiple nights
ie 3 nights in Bergen then use trains and ferries for sightseeing as an example

3) Car hire in Norway, although I believe is around 200 dollars a day and a bit high for one person

4) My main flight most likely will be to Copenhagen Denmark. I am thinking of hiring a car from here which is much cheaper than Norway; I would work my way up the coast into Oslo and then do the tour.

5) Same as 4 but no tour , just using the car as transportation, continuing travel within Norway with dropoff in Oslo. Not sure at this stage about parking availability in alot of places.

6) Same as 4 but drop car off in Oslo upon arrival and use public transportation.

7) After doing the tour , I would have about 8 days. I would train it to Gothenburg Sweden, and hire a car there with dropoff in Copenhagen

Things for me to consider with these options

1) Is it possible for a solo person to travel in Norway for less than $250 a day including sightseeing costs and staying in ensuite accommodation?

2) I know this is subjective, but is 16 days in Norway too long? As per one option I may hire a Car in Copenhagen and return it there with the benefit of reduced hire costs.

Thanks in advance for any assistance
