Norway / July: How to arrange time / bases in the Fjords

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning an independent trip to Norway. Goals: Bergen, Oslo and the Fjords.

We will be flying from Boston and we think it makes sense to do an open-jaw. Perhaps arrive in Bergen and depart from Oslo. We think we will arrive in Bergen on Sunday, July 10 and depart from Oslo on Saturday, July 23rd. This gives us 13 nights in Norway.

Prelimarary plans:
Bergen: Sunday & Monday nights (see the sights and recover from jet lag)
Fjords: depart from Bergen on Tuesday morning to tour the fjords (nights 3 to 11)
Oslo: nights 12 & 13 (Thurs / Friday); husband is interested in Viking history so the museums in Oslo are a must for him. Fly home from Oslo on Saturday.

So, we have 9 nights between Bergen and Oslo to enjoy the beautiful scenary of Norway.
We know we can do Norway in a Nutshell in one day, but we want to take our time by maybe using 3 or 4 bases (hotels).

Can you recommend 3 or 4 bases / towns throughout the fjords? We hate changing hotels every night. We will rent a car if necessary. Although our preliminary readings suggests that public transportation is quite good.

Any advice would be much appreciated.
