Western norway's fjord road trip, Norway - Aug 9 - Aug 16, 2019
I have used the tour services for the first time and my interactions with Ingrid were simply outstanding. She was always prompt with her responses and provided not just the relevant information, but something extra as well. She took on the recommendations positively and was a life saver when we had to make a last minute change in the fjord cruise. Over all we had an amazing experience and I will be using kimkim for my future travels!

Nordic road trip for nature lovers - 14 days, Norway - Jul 26 - Aug 10, 2019
We had a very great experience in Norway thanks to Ingrid's advices! We planned our trip taking inspiration from "Nordic Road Trip for Nature Lovers - 14 Days", we've been put in contact with Ingrid, who did a great job by adapting the tour to our requests. We've had 16 fantastic days hiking and exploring the most scenic views in southern Norway!
We highly recommend this service, as we're totally satisfied with it.
Nordic adventure for outdoor lovers | bergen, trolltunga, voss - 5 days, Norway - Aug 14 - Aug 18, 2019
Our travel guide Fridur helped me plan a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Norway for me and my family. She quickly assessed what types of activities we were interested in and proposed an itinerary that perfectly met our needs. We're adventurous outdoor enthusiasts, so she tailored the Nordic Adventure for Outdoor Lovers to allow us to spend extra time in the beautiful Hardangerfjord area and to change the Trolltunga hike to the Via Ferrata + Sunset/Sunrise Combo. We had an amazing experience and... read more
Bergen fjord adventure - 4 days, Norway - Aug 14 - Aug 17, 2019
My wife and I visited Norway in August 2019 and Ingrid has been a key part of planning and executing our itinerary. We visited Bergen, Balestrand, Tromso, Lofoten Island and Oslo. Ingrid arranged our local travel visiting fords, Balestrand and then the most beautiful train ride via Myrdal. Ingrid also came to meet us personally at Bergen and walked to the city centre. She is a great asset to her company and I found her extremely helpful. Highly recommend Ingrid and Kimkim,
Norway's cities, mountains & fjords - 6 days , Norway - Aug 11 - Aug 16, 2019
The trip was very well organised by Andre. I found him to be responsive, friendly and helpful all the way through the process. We needed a change of bike (to an e-bike) at the last minute and he organised it for us. The places we stayed varied in quality. The hotel in Oslo was not bad - the rooms and feel of the place was that it was a little pokey but clean. Reception was frequently overloaded when more than a couple of guests arrived. The hotel in Gielo was pretty good. It was crowded with... read more
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure - 5 days, Norway - Aug 1 - Aug 8, 2019
The whole itinerary was very well planned and we had a great time in Norway. We couldn’t have visited all the beautiful and scenic locations without Nina’s recommendation. All the hotels are very well located. Nina Andreassen was very helpful and responsive to our queries.
Overall we were satisfied and happy with the service provided by Kim Kim and the team.
We would recommend Kim Kim’s service to anyone who wish to visit Norway.
7 days oslo | local aurland | bergen, Norway - Aug 3 - Aug 10, 2019
I consider that one of my luckiest "finds" to be when I ran across a personal travel posting that mentioned kimkim. I had already spent many unsuccessful & frustrating hours on my computer trying to plan a week long trip to Norway with our son, daughter-in-law, 6 yr old grandson and 2 year old granddaughter. It had become abundantly clear that I was out of my depth. Linda answered my initial inquiry at kimkim and we began planning an agenda that included the areas we wanted to see, bolstered... read more

Norway - Road trip scenic landscape (17 days)
This was my first trip booking through KimKim. Our local agent in Norway (Linda) was fantastic! She did a great job fitting in all our requests of things we wanted to see while in Norway as well as including destinations that were "must sees" for our time in this beautiful country! The hotels were terrific (safe, clean, in nice central locations) and our guides for Oslo and Bergen were fun, knowledgeable, and personable. Linda was also very... read more

Kimkim was easy to use and my agent, Fridur, was fantastic. Super easy to work with and planned a trip that was spot on what I wanted. Everything was communicated clearly. All the places he chose were excellent. Top notch hotels, great local tours, wonderful all around.
Norway fjords summer tour - 14 days, Norway - Jul 20 - Aug 3, 2019
The help we received made the trip perfect fir us. We had a few snafus along the way but they managed them through with us. The private tour we had in Oslo was great, the one in Bergen not as knowledgeable. Could have had some more knowledge on how to get on and off the cruise on check in times for luggage when we need to be out of cabin.
More guidance on good side of the bus for views, more detail on how the nutshell bus works. That sort of thing.
Fjords/kayaking near bergen, Norway - May 31 - Jun 3, 2019
We were disappointed with the service from Kim Kim. The Nærøyfjord fjord itinerary that Ingrid chose for us routed us through the same fjord three times: Flam to Balestrand, then Balestrand to Flam, and then the first hour of the Nærøyfjord “tour” was through the same area for the third time. You called it a tour, but it wasn’t: there was no commentary or information given during the Nærøyfjord trip. On the Norled boats between Flam and Balestrand, there were announcements about towns we were... read more
Bergen through the green fjord to oslo - 7 days, Norway - Jul 28 - Aug 3, 2019
Our trip to the Norwegian Fjords was wonderful.
Until Oslo, our hotels were owned and staffed by local people who provided excellent and friendly service. Our rooms were all different, a good size, clean and colourful with interesting art works on the walls. Our rooms at the Augustin in Bergen and the Kviknes in Balestrand also had lovely views. All hotels were well sited for making the local area easy to explore. In Oslo, the Scandic Byporten was well sited but our room was very... read more
Norway fjords, Norway - Jul 31 - Aug 5, 2019
After clarifying our travel dates, which were for this year and a late booking, Ivan made it all work! We were especially delighted with our stay at the Kviknes Hotel in Balstrand! The demi-suite had a superb view of the fjord; comfortable room and lovely balcony.
The 4 course dinner was served to perfection; the lamb was prepared just right; the entire dinner was beyond what we had expected from a large hotel. Our compliments to the entire establishment of the Kviknes. Personnel are... read more
oslo, bergen, geirangerfjord and ålesund - 10 days, Norway - Jul 28 - Aug 6, 2019
This trip was absolutely magical! Ingrid listened to our interests and constructed a trip that allowed us to see a good spectrum of Norway and participate in activities we enjoyed. Ingrid is a great communicator and answered all questions in a timely and straightforward manner. She also gave us suggestions on places to consider for meals and activities during our free time in Norway. We felt like we had a good balance of free time and activities during our vacation. We could not be more pleased with our KimKim experience!
Norway's ultimate fjord road trip - 10 days, Norway - Jul 27 - Aug 5, 2019
Booking our trip with KimKim was a breeze. André and Ingrid from the Ethical Travel team were extremely responsive and helpful with questions we had as we prepared for our trip. The itinerary they created for us was great and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip and Norway in general.
They also provided many great recommendations and options of what to do or see in each location, which we really appreciated. They helped take the hassle out of figuring out the best route, hotels to stay at things to see, etc.
Overall a positive experience with the team and reccomend to others.
Ultimate winter adventure in norway's arctic - 14 days, Norway - Feb 16 - Mar 1, 2019
Incredibly, 5 months have passed since our trip to Norway and we still haven´t entered our review.
Maybe unconsciously we don't want to end it! But the truth is we´ve been talking about Norway and remembering it since we´ve arrived.
It was a trip of a lifetime, so good that we´ve made a promise to go back, in summer to see the country's other season and in winter again because we truly loved it.
The knowledge and understanding kimkim, and our local specialist Linda, provided along the... read more
Bergen to oslo fjord adventure - 5 days, Norway - Jul 30 - Aug 3, 2019
We can't thank Vilde enough for her great work on pretty short notice. She arranged the perfect trip starting in Bergen, migrating to the heart of the fjords/Balestrand, and wrapping up in Oslo at the perfect hotel for our last day. Some highlights include our fun and fantastic tour of Bergen, our ferry rides to Balestrand and Flam, our scenic hotel just outside Balestrand in Dragsvik, and our Flamsbana train ride.
Norwegian highlights: oslo, mountains & fjords, bergen - 8 days, Norway - Jul 17 - Jul 24, 2019
We really wished we would’ve gotten to see what we thought we were going to see. On our itinerary, it showed pictures of beautiful places, but that was not what we got to see. One place in particular was over an hour away from where we were, but we were led to believe that is what we would see in the town we were staying in. We also were told that one of our train rides would go through waterfalls, which it did not. All of our accommodations were great.
road trip & norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 9 days, Norway - Jul 22 - Jul 30, 2019
Thank you for everything Linda! We had the best experience working with Linda and she arranged our trip so well. The communication throughout the planning process was very clear, punctual and helpful. Linda checked in with us prior to the trip, sending weather, maps, any last minute changes and made sure we were all set. The planning on her end was awesome!
We loved our tour with Stig, he was super informative about Oslo, Norway, Norwegian history and we had such a great time walking along... read more
Experience oslo & the western fjords - 10 days, Norway - Jul 21 - Jul 29, 2019
Although the trip was enjoyable overall -- and Ingrid was fabulous -- there are several areas in which improvements could be made. First, I would provide more detailed traveler information. Such as for arrival at Oslo airport, include instructions for how to pay for and get on the Airport express train. Detailed instructions are important for first-time visitors. Then, upon arrival at the Central Train Station in Oslo, include instructions such as "look for exit marked "[fill in name of... read more
Southern norway's cabin-to-cabin trek , Norway - Jul 22 - Jul 26, 2019
Managed to arrange a fantastic short hiking trip on pretty short notice (only about three weeks). We didn't know much about Norway and were busy with work, but Vilde's suggested trip worked out great!
All we had to do was follow the trace of the DNT red T rocks, love the scenes and get to the next hut in time. Thanks!
Southern norway's cabin-to-cabin trek , Norway - Jul 22 - Jul 26, 2019
We had an amazing trip thanks to Vilde. The for day hiking trip was not something we could have planned on our own (unless we did a LOT more research) and it was exactly what I was looking for!
Vilde was super responsive throughout the trip and helped us make changes along the way. It would have been even more perfect if she had suggested DMT membership for discounts and packing a thermos for teas during the hikes :-)
the best of norway, Norway - Jul 15 - Jul 27, 2019
We met up with 2 guides Stig in Oslo and Ingrid in Bergen. We thoroughly enjoyed there company and both took us to places we would not have seen otherwise. Ingrid also arranged our itinerary which was amazing. We did give her some feedback which she has taken on board. We were very fortunate the weather was kind to us bar a couple of days which drizzled but that did not deter us. We were pleasantly surprised with the Hurtigruten and the fit out and food and Artic superior room were really... read more

Fridur put together a great trip for us from start to finish. She was always accommodating to us before our trip and even during our trip. She was also able to help us on our extended trip to Iceland as well. We would definitely use Kimkim and Fridur again on our next trip back.

Ingrid was fantastic and helped us each step of the way. Highly recommend Kim Kim. Fast response times, good eateries were recommended and good hotels!!

Working with Ingrid was amazing from start to finish! She listened to our preferences, built us a trip around them, and provided a detailed and highly organized trip plan. Her communication was wonderful and answered any questions we had. We particularly loved the breakfast at the Thon Hotel Cecil in Oslo, and the kayaking adventure we had in Fjaerland! We cannot recommend KimKim and Ingrid enough!
Oslo to bergen to ålesund fjord adventure - 5 days, Norway - Jul 15 - Jul 19, 2019
We had a wonderful trip to Norway and enjoyed having the expertise of our KimKim specialist, Vilde. Our Norway trip included visits to Oslo, Bergen and Ålesund. We had done our own research, but it was great to have the local touch from Vilde - including some lovely recommendations for where to stay, shop and eat. Our favorite spot was Geirangerfjord - truly spectacular scenery and we lucked out with sunny and clear weather during the majority of our trip (July 2019). Another highlight was... read more
Oslo, bergen & southern norway - 12 days, Norway - Jul 8 - Jul 19, 2019
My wife and I just enjoyed a wonderful 12 day trip through Norway. Our local specialist Ingrid took care of all the planning for us including the hotels, transportation between our stays and several excursions. The detailed trip plan including maps of all the pick up and drop off points at the areas we stayed in was very useful, it helped take the stress out of traveling through unfamiliar cities.

My wife and I decided to use KimKim to assist with planning our 3 week trip to Norway. Ingrid was our local specialist.
We wanted to travel to Norway with several family members and everyone had different ideas of what they wanted to do and see in Norway. Plus, some of our party were going only be with us for part of the vacation. So, our needs seemed to be a little complicated, and things did change during the planning phase.
I was impressed by Ingrid's ability to structure an approach... read more
Western norway's fjord road trip, Norway - Jul 9 - Jul 17, 2019
Andre did an incredible job planning our trip from start to finish. Vilde was also very helpful once we got on the ground in answering a variety of questions as well. We really enjoyed all of our accommodations that Andre selected, especially the places we stayed in Aurland and Fjaerland. In hindsight, we wish we had made the decision to stay at each of those places another night each, as we realized we prefer little towns to larger cities. Alesund, and especially Hotel Brosundet, was very... read more

I went to Norway with my mother and we had a wonderful time there. Everything was perfectly planned by our extremely enthusiastic specialist Ingrid! She was very prompt when it comes to solving any queries I had regarding the itenary or the place itself! We loved how she planned the itenary in the given amount of time. We enjoyed Balestrand the most. We could barely see any tourists there and it was such a wonderful place to be! Truly an advantage of having a local tour specialist!

We loved the trip, especially Kalvåg. That is an amazing little village.
A couple of improvements:
Flåm was beautiful- but they don’t allow kids younger than 12 months on the bike down and our baby was 8 months and our guide knew this. She couldn’t even fit the kids helmet. Maybe they didn’t tell her, but the experience was awful.
One of the ferries ran every 2 hours, and our itinerary said it ran frequently.
There was an overall lack of recommendations on what to see each day, We... read more

Stig in Oslo and Ingrid in Bergen had insights that normal guides may not have as they had lived in their respective city’s all their lives. The walking tours were exceptionally and a great way to see these city’s and also have exercise and fresh air. Myself and my three adult children thought this was a fun time together and we got many beautiful pictures.

The trip I did was just incredible thanks to Linda! I came across kimkim while I was doing some research of Norway but finding most of the websites being fragmented and easy for me to get lost.

My partner and I have bought two more guide books for reference and we were constantly surprised by how the most... read more

We planned this trip last year, but I broke my foot and we had to cancel. We easily re-booked the whole trip this year, same hotels, same activities. The trip was splendid, we spent time in Copenhagen before and Stockholm after, but Ingrid and kimkim planned the Norway part of the trip with us.

Wonderful trip! Hiking the Romsdalseggen ridge was a highlight -- absolutely stunning. (One note -- we took the bus from town but learned afterwards that for two or more people a taxi directly to the trailhead is actually more cost effective). Ingrid was fantastic -- we had a few mix ups with transfers but she fixed it immediately.

I had an amazing trip and with the help of Fridur's booking I was able to navigate very easily. I liked a lot that the hotels were near transportation and sightseeing opportunities. It was also pretty cool that the first hotel in Bergen and the hotel in Balestrand were historical hotels. And of course Norway itself was just beautiful, so I will certainly want to return! One thing which may be good to note for anyone visiting Balestrand is that there is a tourist office (where I did an awesome... read more

Linda was great with all the planning and we really enjoyed our Norway trip thanks to all the arrangements made by Linda. We were 5 families and her recommendations were spot-on considering the kids in the group. We did have an issue with mix-up in dates for the local tour on one of the days. However, Linda was quick to take ownership of the issue and was able to arrange the same tour for the same day but at a different time. Our Guide Samuel for the Undredal village tour was awesome.

Our trip to the fiords and western isles of Norway was extremely well organized by Ingrid. The only issue was that she could not control the weather which was generally wet and cold!! But we learned a new Norwegian saying "there is no such thing as bad weather only bad clothes"! Despite the weather, we had a great time.

I can't thank Julia enough for all her recommendations of where to go in Northern Norway. I started out trying to organise the trip myself, as I would usually do, and Norway had me perplexed with exactly where to go and how much time we would need.

Particular highlights were the Sea Cabins in Reine, the stunning house and surrounding areas in Senja and the gorgeous accommodation approximately 30 minutes outside Tromso.

We had great personal tours in both Oslo and Bergen and especially enjoyed our stay in quiet Aurland combined with a sea safari out of Flam. Thank you for a Very memorable trip!
Norwegian fjords, Norway - Apr 18 - Apr 26, 2019
Let me start by saying this was by far one of the most amazing trips I’ve had. KimKim is an excellent place for customizable tours and for those looking to travel independently with just hotels and transportation pre-booked. I was in Norway for 8 days in April and Ingrid helped me plan and organize my stay, and accommodated several itinerary changes from my side 😊. She gave me multiple suggestions for hiking and sightseeing (including maps and distances) in the cities I visited. The whole... read more
10 days in norway: 7 unique itinerary ideas, Norway - Apr 14 - Apr 22, 2019
Ingrid did an amazing job planning our trip through Norway. We were able to fly into Oslo and make our way across the country towards Bergen via train. We made stops along the way in Geilo and Flam, finally reaching the city of Bergen. We were so impressed with how accessible Ingrid and her team were in making last minute changes, booking restaurants and their overall knowledge of what to see and do. We had a wonderful and memorable family vacation in Norway and I felt so blessed to be led by the kimkim Team! Thank you!
Nordic adventure for outdoor lovers - 5 days, Norway - Apr 10 - Apr 14, 2019
Overall really solid job with the trip planning and execution from the KimKim team and happy with their service - I would recommend it to others. (I worked with Andre and Ingrid.) I booked on short notice and they were able to turnaround a fun, cost-effective, well-organized trip built around the input I provided (interests, timeframe, preferences, etc.) Pre-trip communication was timely and thorough, they were quick to adapt activities based on seasonanilty and want made sense with... read more
Northern norway's arctic adventure, Norway - Mar 30 - Apr 4, 2019
Successfully attached this trip to Norway after a work trip in other areas of Europe. Couldn't have asked for more responsiveness from my local contact Ingrid. I'm very detail oriented and she always gave me all the information I requested as we planned the specifics of each day.
The Lofoten area at the end of March had perhaps the most finicky weather I've ever seen so be ready with appropriate clothing and gear. Expect to have some activities cancelled or moved and try to go with the flow.... read more
Norway's ultimate trip , Norway - Mar 22 - Apr 8, 2019
From the very first conversation to the last day there Ingrid was there to make sure we had the time of our lives in Norway for 18 days. With no detail left out and the time taken to make sure we had everything throughout our trip. She answered our questions as needed was invaluable. Meeting a local with knowledge of the area makes the difference in planning a trip. Would highly recommend this service to anyone who needs assistance in traveling and would love to have a full time travel planner! Worth every cent!
Birkebeinerrennett then see a bit of norway, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 22, 2019
When I was planning a trip to Norway for a mid-March Nordic ski race, my family (with two teen kids) knew we wanted to see more than the area between Rena and Lillehammer but didn't know anything about Norway or where to begin. I completely trusted the local knowledge of Vilde and Ingrid to make a recommendation for what more we should see in the time we had and without a car. The trip completely exceeded my expectations!
Several friends joined in after they heard the trip plan. We had... read more
10 days | oslo - bergen - tromsø, Norway - Mar 15 - Mar 24, 2019
Amazing experience with Kimkim.
Ingrid was very professional and made sure to tailor our trip to Oslo, Bergen and Tromso based on what we want and what we like and was always responsive in a timely manner.
Dogsledding adventure at trappers farm, Norway - Mar 16 - Mar 23, 2019
I'm so grateful to Ingrid, Kimkim and Trapper's Farm for helping me arrange the Norwegian adventure of my dreams. I wanted to chase the Northern Lights on a multi-day dogsledding expedition, and Trappers Farm delivered. The 4-day trip was highly personalized, authentic and filled with once in a lifetime opportunities. If you want to experience dog sledding off the beaten track, I highly recommend arranging a trip with them.
oslo - bergen - tromsø | magic of the fjords & northern norway, Norway - Mar 9 - Mar 15, 2019
Ingrid did a wonderful job planning our trip. She was prompt, professional and thoughtful. We had limited time and wanted to fit in Oslo, Bergen, the Flam railway, a Fjord cruise, dog sledding and the Northern lights. It took some adroit and creative planning to fit all this in 5 days, and we simply could not have figured this out on our own, and I give Ingrid great credit for figuring out a travel itinerary where we could do all this without feeling rushed. Everything went smoothly thanks... read more
Hiking adventure seeing natures beauty, Norway - Mar 3 - Mar 8, 2019
Ingrid was perfect! From start to finish she provided so much information, advice and support. She put together a perfect itinerary for Norway which ran super smoothly. I fit so much in to 5 days and had an incredible experience. Absolutely everything was organised and if I had Abby questions Ingrid responded pretty much immediately. I would highly recommend Kim Kim and I would definitely use again.
Tromsø winter adventure - 3 days, Norway - Feb 25 - Feb 28, 2019
Disappointed... although the communication was excellent but the plan is improper. We ended up paying extra cost for accumedation and transportation, and they didn’t take any responsibility to refund the missed up situation
Winter adenture in norway , Norway - Feb 7 - Feb 17, 2019
This trip was fantastic. I had some ideas as to what I wanted to do in Norway, but Ingrid put together the itinerary to accomplish it in a really unique trip.
We flew from Minneapolis to Amsterdam, then to Oslo, and finally to Tromso, before transferring to the Malangen Resort. Delicious dinner at the resort. We stayed in one of the deluxe cabins. The next day we went dogsledding and saw the Northern lights. We were allowed to mush our own team of dogs and were given a snack (reindeer... read more
Tromsø & alta winter adventure - 8 days, Norway - Jan 25 - Feb 1, 2019
Overall working with kimkim was a great experience. Norway in winter was beautiful. The best was wisely saved for last. Or experience at Trasti & Trine was magical. Hannah, or dogsled guide was terrific and Johnny's food was an event every meal. We will definitely be back and will use kimkim again.
Tromsø & senja winter excursion - 5 days, Norway - Jan 20 - Jan 24, 2019
We had an amazing trip to tromso and senja. All the activities were perfectly planned.
And luckily we have seen the northern lights twice! 😊
We would definitively book here again!
Tromsø | senja| photography lofoten , Norway - Jan 2 - Jan 21, 2019
Having never visited Norway before, we are so glad we found KimKim, and more specifically our specialist, Linda. With her knowledge of the area, we were able to collaborate and design the perfect itinerary. She was always prompt in responding to my (many) questions and a pleasure to work with.
We were also impressed and appreciative that Linda, or her co-worker Ingrid, were so available to us during this trip. Linda checked in with us periodically throughout the trip to make sure... read more
14 days | from the fjords in the south to northern lights in the north |, Norway - Dec 26 - Jan 7, 2019
We had the time of our lives on this trip. From start to finish, Ingrid and KimKim was amazing. Ingrid Skyped and emailed with my husband to plan the perfect trip. She worked hard to get the things we wanted, the places we wanted to visit, and then made wonderful suggestions. We were able to travel from south to north with ease and see so much of Norway and the different cities and towns. Ingrid even took us on a personal tour in Bergen which was a perfect way to start our trip.
We... read more
Epic winter excursion in norway's cities - 11 days, Norway - Dec 21 - Dec 31, 2018
We contacted KimKim literally a few days before we wanted to embark on an 11 day trip through Norway. We were lucky to be connected with Linda, who put together a fun yet relaxing itinerary for us. After a few days in Oslo, we spent Christmas in Flam which was a true highlight, topped off with a fjord cruise on Christmas Day. Then we journeyed to Bergen for sightseeing and wonderful seafood. The Floibanen funicular was really fun and after the clouds parted we got some amazing views of the... read more
12 days | road trip along the coast of norway, Norway - Aug 9 - Aug 20, 2018
We traveled to Norway this past summer. Ingrid was great helping us plan our trip. She spent the day with us in Bergen and we loved her walking tour of her city. We loved the cabin in Loen that we never would have found without Ingrid’s advice. Our boys loved the hike we took in Geilo.
Scenic road trip & fjord experiences - the best of norway , Norway - Oct 30 - Nov 10, 2018
My wife and I has visited Norway from 30th October, 2018 to 10th November, 2018. In short, this was one of the best trips of our lives, all the credit goes to Ingrid.
Our plan was a 12 day plan, more on the road and outside than on tours and hotels. Our itinerary was planned in a great way along with the maps provided to us by ingrid was very helpful. We got to see many things, mountains, Fjords, Northern lights, whales, beautiful clean roads, scenery, sunrise, sunsets etc.
We visited the... read more
Norway's fjord adventure, Norway - Oct 5 - Oct 11, 2018
We loved the convenience, prompt reply and local insights. The local walking tours were fun and informative. The hotel in Aurland was really charming, and the fjord ferry cruise from Aurland was fantastic.
Ingrid and Vilde were helpful in offering local tips, packing tips, and so on.
I've recommended Kimkim.com's service to many friends already and many are keen to try out!
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure, Norway - Oct 4 - Oct 10, 2018
We are so pleased to have used this service when booking our trip. Ingrid and the team delivered an excellent program that perfectly suited our travel plans. It was a seamless process and took all of the guesswork out of the holiday. Very reasonable pricing as well. Thanks so much for all your help
3 weeks | the best of norway , Norway - Sep 9 - Oct 3, 2018
Ingrid was very helpful fight throughout the trip with additional requests we had. The planning and ticketing went like clockwork and was thus very easy to complete the journey. No problems were encounted.
Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 15 days, Norway - Aug 23 - Sep 6, 2018
Planning a trip with an in-country advisor just makes sense. Ingrid Thornes, our trip consultant for a two week trip in Norway, met and exceeded our expectations. Being from Bergen, she was able to give good first-hand advice and proved more reliable than a guide book.
We outlined our preferences for types of hotels, modes of transport, and places we wanted to include on our visit. Ingrid evaluated our ideas, made suggestions and then delivered an itinerary that we collaborated on for... read more
norwegian highlights: bergen & the sognefjord | tromsø & hurtigruten, Norway - Sep 10 - Sep 27, 2018
Our whole trip was carefully curated to meet our particular interests including our daughter joining for the last three days. She was equally appreciative of Linda’s efforts on her behalf. The whole itinerary unfolded seamlessly and we can’t recommend Linda highly enough. Our guides, David and Stig in Bergen and Oslo also were focused on what we wanted to experience and gave us an interesting insight into contemporary Norwegian life.
