Norway -- Nutshell tour and Stavanger

Jump to last reply

I will be going to Norway for work at the end of September and want to tack on a handful of days to do some traveling on my own. I plan to fly into Oslo, take the Norway in a Nutshell tour to end up in Bergen (one way), then either take a ferry or bus from Bergen to Stavanger. I was hoping to get some realistic feedback on:

1) Would one full day in Oslo be enough? I would then get on the NIN tour the next morning.
2) What NIN tour do I choose? I was hoping to stay overnight and split it into a two day trip, but there are so many options. Suggestions on where to stay, too? I heard Falm is overrated.
3) Once I arrive in Bergen from the tour, would an overnight stay be enough or should I save the entire next day after I arrive to explore?
4) Thoughts on taking a ferry or bus from Bergen to Stavanger? I've read a lot about taking the bus and making a pit stop in Haugesund.
5) Once in Stavanger, I plan to hike to Preacher's Pulpit, but will the time of year have an impact on doing so? I haven't seen any forums with trips in the fall.
6) After my conference I will take a train back to Oslo to fly back to the states.

Thanks in advance for the advice!
