Norway Fjords

Jump to last reply

Need help planning visit to Norway. I am senior, experienced traveler and travel solo.
I considered taking escorted tour which travels from UK airports to Bergen continuing on coach to hotel in Balestrand for 7 nights. I live in US and could travel from Manchester, Gatwick or Bristol.
There are 2 or 3 free days to do sightseeing.
Some of the day tours are included, others optional. Group will travel by boat to Bergen to see city plus stop at harbor. A day tour to see Jostedal Glacier and northern landscapes beyond Fjords. Optional visit to see Glacier and Museum.
Norway in Nutshell, riding Flamsbane line, Mydral to Flam, 20k. descent, 2 hr. cruise thru Aurlands fjord to Gudvangen. Included trip to Sognefjord to Kaupanger.
Hotel is near the Balestrand village.

If its easy to travel in Norway I might be able to see some of the popular scenic areas without having to pay for the tour and save on the supplements for solo traveler and might be able to get flights to Bergen for less. I did see that Norwegian air has non stop flight from Manchester to Bergen and I could book Aer LIngus to Dublin on to Manchester. Is it easy to prebook bus, train land ferry tickets. I would plan making this journey before end of August.

Need some guidance from travelers who know the scenic areas in Norway. If I decide not to book this tour, can one travel easily in Norway by public transportation and ferry? Is Balestrand a convenient base? Any suggestions for other base which will be convenient for taking day trips and hotels. I am experienced hiker and active so try to pack as much as possible into my trips.

Thank you to all for any help with my plan.
