My first visit to Norway was a flight to Bergen and then a tour around the fjords,
getting as far north as Alesund, using my tent, public transport and camping along
"Lom Stave Church"
My second visit was a tour of the fjords with my parents (they were impressed with
the slides I'd brought back the previous year). It was a shorter trip because we
were staying in Pensions, but included staying in Bergen, Voss, Flam and Balestrand.
Nearly twenty years after my previous visit. This was an organized hiking tour to
Spitzbergen, the arctic island north of the Norwegian mainland. The tour was based
on camping, but in permanent setup tented sites plus a night in a hostel in Pyramidian,
a Russian mining town. (Pyramidian has since closed down and has been deserted!!).
Another five years and flights with Ryanair were available from Stansted to Oslo
Torp (a two hour coach ride away from the centre of Oslo!). This time I was camping
again with my own tent. A bus from Oslo to the Jotunheimen mountains and a walk
across the region. Then a bus to the fjords region camping at Balestrand, Fjaerland
and Flam, before taking the train back to Oslo.
"Camping under the Rainbow"
Again a flight with Ryanair was available from Stansted to Oslo Torp. Camping again
with my own tent. A train from Oslo to Trondhiem, then a train to Bodo, boat to the
Lofoten Islands. Travel through the islands by bus and then boat and train back
"A in Lofoten"
