Please help allocate time in Lofoten and Bergen area

Jump to last reply

Hi, our family will be traveling in Norway for 9 days mainly to visit Lofoten and Bergen area. Can you all look at my itinerary and share your insight? Our trip is September 10-20, 2014.
Day 0- Leave US
Day 1- arrival in Oslo at 10:30 am from US, overnight in Oslo
Day 2- fly from Oslo to Harstad/ Narvik airport, pick up a rental car and drive to Svolyaer, overnight in Svolyaer
Day 3- Tour Lofoten , overnight in Reine
Day 4- tour Lofoten, overnight in Reine again Or any recommended place
Day 5- tour Lofoten, overnight in somewhere scenic but close to Harstad/ Narvik airport
Day 6- fly from Harstad/ Narvik to Bergen, overnight in Bergen
Day 7- tour Bergen surrounding area, overnight in Aurland or Flam?
Day 8- tour Bergen surrounding area, overnight in Aurland or Flam or Bergen?
Day 9- tour Bergen area one full day. Scheduled flight at 8:30PM from Bergen to Oslo, overnight in Oslo airport hotel
Day 10- fly home

Can you all comment on whether I should fly to Bergen on day 7 instead of day 6? Do I allocate too many days for Bergen and not enough days in Lofoten to do its justice? This is our first trip to Norway. We love nature and photography. Are sceneries very much alike from North to south end of Lofoten or is it diversely varied?
Thanks in advance for any input.
