Norway August Trip

Hoping my fellow fodorites can point me in the right direction....
Family of 4 - 19 and 16 year old kids.
Our only travel window is the first 2 weeks of August.
We can fly direct to Oslo from miami.
How should I start planning? Fjords, Hiking, adventure, history, culture, northernmost point, Oslo, Bergen. Hoping to find itineraries to get inspiration from.....
Happy to rent a car. We love the freedom.
We have 12 nights max including travel.
Thank you!

Maybe:

Fly into Bergen and do the Norway in a Nutshell Loops from Bergen sans car - train to Voss - mountain bus to fjord- boat to Flam - scenic train up to Myrdahl for trains back to Bergen - then pick up car and tool around fjord country - spend few days in Oslo and trace the course of the Bergen-Oslo Railways back to Oslo and much as possible -a place to start - for more on Norway in a Nutshell Loop check www.budgeteuropetravel.com; www.ricksteves.com and www.seat61.com.

I would rent a car and drive. Especially with kids. We did a great road trip in Norway and it is a very easy country to drive around. I recently found this website and the family is very adventurous ( more than I would be but they are a lot younger than me). It might give you some ideas. https://www.earthtrekkers.com/norway-itinerary/

Norway is the most beautiful places we have ever been. We went in August too.

Here is the link to my trip report but you have much more time than we did so you can do much more.
