Three Days in Oslo-Bergen Itinerary Question

Jump to last reply

Hello all,

I've got 3 days+ in the Oslo area next summer, and I'm trying to figure out the best itinerary logistically. My intent is to spend 1 day in Bergen, 1 day during the Norway in a Nutshell, and 1+ days in Oslo.

I arrive into Oslo in the evening on a Wednesday. I'm thinking of taking the overnight train to Bergen that same night. I arrive into Oslo around 7 p.m. from Longyearbyen via Tromso. The overnight train for Bergen departs at around 10 p.m., so I should have plenty of time to make the train. I spend the day wandering around Bergen and overnight Bergen on Thursday. On Friday, I do the Norway in a Nutshell tour from Bergen and ending in Oslo in the evening. I spend the night in Oslo. On Saturday, I spend the day touring Oslo. On Sunday, I spend a morning touring, and leave for the US in the early afternoon. So, the itinerary looks like this:

Wed: Overnight train to Bergen; o/n Bergen
Thu: Bergen
Fri: Norway in a Nutshell; o/n Oslo
Sat: Oslo
Sun: Morning - Oslo; Afternoon - depart

Alternatively, I could do:

Wed: Oslo; o/n Oslo
Thu: Norway in a Nutshell; o/n Bergen
Fri: Bergen; Overnight train to Oslo; o/n Oslo
Sat: Oslo
Sun: Morning - Oslo; Afternoon - depart

Another alternative would be:

Wed: Oslo; o/n Oslo
Thu: Oslo
Fri: Norway in a Nutshell; o/n Bergen
Sat: Bergen, Overnight train to Oslo; o/n Oslo
Sun: Morning - Oslo; Afternoon - depart

Or, am I better of skipping Bergen altogether and just doing NIN as a day trip and spending all my nights in Oslo? I'm currently leaning towards the first itinerary, though it isn't much different than the second.
