Looks like an epic trip I recognise a few places having been to them this year.


Tromso Did you make it to the Arctic cathedral?
Geiranger Lovely place
Bergen massive fish market on the front

The furthest North we got was Molde, with a day out to Kristiansund & The Atlantic Coast Road.

Geiranger was stunning, picture postcard stuff.

Stayed one night in Bergen, the Fish Market was unbelievable, with Giant Crabs etc.

As said previously, would be good to go back if a Ferry starts again from the UK to Bergen.

Perhaps STeinar could give us a guided Tour.

The picture of the 2 ski runs in one of the pictures reminded me of the ones I saw in Tromso.


I would go by road too if the ferry arrives!

Color Line offer an overnight Ferry from Kiel (Germany) to Oslo, http://www.colorline.com/crossings/from ... _to_norway.

Because of the 14:00 Departure, two days would still be required to get to Kiel from either Amsterdam or Rotterdam, but at the start of day 3, you'd be in Norway.
