Question ID: 769955
I would like to go to visit the Norwegian fjords for a long weekend
trip from October 20th - 23rd. My flight options are to go to Bergen
or Haugesund.

I would like some help planning an itinerary.

- My primary aim is to see stunning natural scenery, and not really
spend any time at all in cities. I like doing scenic drives, but would
also be happy with boat/train trips.

- I wouldnt like to drive for more than 3 hours at a time

- I am not bothered whether i go to one place and use that as a base
for excursions, or if i do more of a 'route' (staying at a different
place each night). But note that i will need to fly in and out of the
same airport.

- I am with my girlfriend, so i would like if possible to include at
least 1 night in a hotel with a bit of class. Doesnt need to
necessarily be 5*, but something which will be more than just
functional. A spa would be ideal. Assume price is no object.

- Note that in your recommendations you will have to take into account
that many hotels and some roads are closed at this time of year.

Thanks for any help you can give!
There is no answer at this time.

Greetings Nebbisch,
That seems like too little time to do what you want, but maybe this
site is some help:

My girlfriend and I had planned a trip last November through If I remember correctly, they
do allow you to book a hotel room with the tour package. We booked the
Norway in a Nutshell package out of Bergen, which seems to pretty much
be what you're looking for.

Unfortunately, due to a travel mixup, we were't actually able to get
to Norway to take the tour we booked, so I can't be much help there. I
do remember having an overall positive experience in the booking
process -- my only complaint is that we weren't able to get a refund
when we couldn't make the tour, but that policy was clearly stated on
their website.

Hope this helps
