Help with tour of Norway please.

Jump to last reply

Hello. I am hoping for some input from those who have been to Norway and the area. Currently we arrive in London from Vancouver on September 14th and have booked a connecting flight to Bergen.
We are travelling on points so can make changes for a small fee.

The plan was to tour around Norway in a rental car for 8 nights.
Then fly to Iceland and tour around in a rental car for 9 or 10 nights
Then fly to Stockholm for a few nights and end up in Copenhagen.

We do have another month in Europe but going elsewhere for that. I was hoping to spend three 1/2 weeks in the north.

I am reading lots of trip reports and articles and not sure whether we should do it this way (in Norway) or do the Norway in a nutshell that everyone is talking about. I am really not sure what that is, try as I might. Is it a rail pass that allows you to travel around Norway for how ever many days you buy the pass for? Is that an advantage over renting and car, and if so why?

My next question is, I just read that the train between Oslo and Bergen is spectacular. I thought I was being so smart flying right into Bergen, but now not so sure.
Should I change my flight and land in Oslo and then take the train to Bergen? I would have to cut a night or two somewhere to do this I suppose, but if it is worth it we can work it out.

We are west coast Canadian, 60 and 65 years old, and travel a lot. We travel light and would be comfortable either driving or taking the train.
