Loved our 8-Day Norway Trip! · Norway - Jun 18 - Jun 25, 2022
Tricia did a fantastic job setting up our 8-day journey in Norway! While we could have spent some more time in the cities, the fjord cruises, hotels, and Trolltunga hike were definitely the highlights. The Flam Railway was also an amazing surprise, as we didn't realize it was not a normal train transfer, and that valley was simply incredible. The Aurlandsfjord Hotel was also a terrific place to stay and gave us gorgeous views of that particular fjord. Trolltunga Active is a high... read more
Norway in the Summer Light · Norway - Jun 11 - Jun 29, 2022
Norway is indescribable. The amazing scenery and abundance of natural beauty were stunning. Our trip included travel by rail, auto, ship, public transport, and of course walking and hiking. Along the way, we sampled the abundance of food and drink that Norway offers. The midnight sun kept us up longer than we're used to but gave us opportunities to experience the scenery at any time of day. There were a few glitches and Sonia was ready and available to help with an unanticipated schedule... read more

We are back home in Maine with our two cats, the gardens are in late Spring bloom and we have many, many photos to be edited and posted.
We sincerely thank Tom Christer and the KimKim team for their guidance throughout the trip, from framing our itinerary to our final days in Oslo. Tom was not only a guide but a friend in times of uncertainty when we tested positive.

Norway grand tour · Norway - Jun 16 - Jun 23, 2022
Our trip was indeed AMAZING and we got what we wanted from it. We had a wide experience of the main highlights that Norway has to offer.......including the calm of Oslo, the history of Bergen, and why or what is Trondheim. We had a "great railway trip" from Oslo to the Flam, met up with over peopled Cruise Ships (not for us), cruised the coast and the fjords through rain and sun, fell in awe at Geiranger fjord, and got very wet on the Atlantic Highway.

A Fabulous 13 day trip to Norway · Norway - Jun 14 - Jun 26, 2022
We had great guides. Stig was incredible in Oslo. Torstein was great in Aurland. John was superb in Bergen and went out of his way to help. Linda was the best - responsive, courteous, helpful - even got us refund from hotel due to difficulty leaving US. Linda was creative in planning the trip and with me all the time, thru kimkim, very fast responses. Our 13 days in Norway was everything we could have imagined. Even the weather cooperated!!

We had an amazing experience planning and coordinating the trip with Linda and the team. Despite Covid19 trying hard to cancel our trip (and after 2 years of postponing it) we managed to take the trip and have an incredible time. The team was super helpful throughout all the different changes, adjustments and was very accommodating and always with a smile. We thank them for that!

We were very fortunate to finally go on this trip as our original booking was in June 2020. Julia remained in contact over the past two years answering any questions we had. The rebooking of our original itinerary was without issue.
Our trip to Norway was fantastic. The hotels were great and the transportation was seamless. Although we found the entire country very beautiful our most memorable places were Geiranger for its views and hiking and the Lofoten island chain for its... read more
Worth the Wait · Norway - May 30 - Jun 8, 2022
Linda had to plan our trip not once but three times thanks to COVID. It was well worth the wait! The best part for us was the local touch. While other folks walked around in groups of 20 struggling to hear one guide tell stories, our family had one guide all to ourselves. They provided great insight and a personal touch I don't think we would have had with another company. read more
Trip of a Lifetime! · Norway - May 24 - Jun 2, 2022
I do not even know where to begin! When we first discovered the Lofoten Islands, we knew we had to get there but didn't know the first thing about how. Julia was incredibly helpful with mapping out the best way to get there and what to see. Her suggestion to see more than just the Lofoten Islands was so appreciated as we were able to explore so much more of northern Norway and see places we'd never heard of it nor would we have ever known about if it were not for Julia. We flew into Tromso... read more
Spectacular Service - Spectacular Norway! · Norway - May 26 - Jun 8, 2022
Our trip to Norway was spectacular! The country is beautiful and people are really friendly. Julia is super amazing and gave us exactly what we were looking for. We booked and paid in full before the pandemic and had to delay the trip for 2 years. KimKim kept their word and there were no additional fees. Truly amazing and a welcome change!
Wonderful trip!!!! · Norway - May 21 - Jun 4, 2022
My husband and I recently returned from a trip which included Bergen, Vaerlandet, Fjaerland and Lofoten . It's hard for me to express with words how wonderful our trip was. The credit for this goes to our wonderful specialist Linda. We started planning this trip about 3 years ago . We had to cancel our plans twice due to covid. This involved a lot of work on Linda's part but she was always gracious and happy to help. In addition to planning our route she also recommended and scheduled... read more

Kimkim saved us because inly 5-6 days before our sudden departure to Norway they managed to make our 7 days beautiful and not too stressful like we asked. Tom Christer was very kind and helpful. He responded fast on our questions and requests.
A note that our room in Oslo was so small, that we could hardly open our luggages. And we requested a comfort trip.
Other than that the itinerary and accommodation were perfect for us. Thanks so much Tom and Kimkim!! read more

We don’t think Tricia is familiar with the area we traveled. She gave us insufficient, incomplete and some cases wrong information. We were fortunate enough to get help from our Norwegian friend who guided us throughout our tour. Without our friend’s help we would have been in a very difficult situation. The selection of hotels was very good except for Malangen Resort. The room offered a very good view but it was shabby and outdated. The floor was loose and, when you walk on it, it bounced.... read more

Norway in a Nutshell was easy to follow and all the connections went very well.
The hotels on the intinerary were excellent. I especially enjoyed all the breakfasts at each place. The Clarion in Bergen was outstanding. And the added bonus was that dinner was included. I stumbled across a troll forest as well as a lovely lake at the top of the funicular in Bergen.
The hotel in Flam oozed with charm. Julia went over and beyond to make sure my experience was great. I bet she even... read more

Family travel can be challenging, especially with teenagers-- but Linda's arrangements were spectacular! She really took into account our interests and helped us plan a trip full of adventure. Our guides-- especially our hiking guide, Heidi and our kayaking guide, Craig-- were amazing! The excursions were well-planned,... read more

I thought Linda did a great job arranging our trip to Norway.
Unfortunately outside influences affected the trip. SAS changed our flights 6 times which had a knock on affect to our itinerary but Linda was very patient reorganising it multiple times. SAS also lost one of our bags which was returned to us a day later thankfully. We returned to the UK with Norwegian Airlines who seem a great deal more reliable.
I would not recommend travelling to the islands over Christmas when many of the... read more

We enjoyed the trip to Norway. Thanks Hilde and Linda for customising the trip for us. Just couple of suggestions:
1. Felt that more suggestions could have been given for Tromso activities upfront
2. Felt we could have spent 2nd day in a row chasing northern lights instead of cruise. Maybe should have discussed bit more with us about options. read more

Right from the first interaction though, Julia proved knowledgeable, confident, and most of all passionate about the country. She listened to our specification and came up with what turned out to be a perfect road trip. It is a long and thin country, so focusing on what to see, where to go, how to get there was crucial to make the most of our time, and three weeks is nowhere near... read more
Great great help and service from Hilde · Norway - Aug 5 - Aug 18, 2021
Hilde was great and took into account my profile to organise the road trip.
She was responding whenever needed and I enjoyed my road trip.

Thanks and I will recommand your site.
Fantastic Northern Norway Tour · Norway - Feb 22 - Mar 1, 2020
When my son said that he had a lifelong dream to see the northern lights, I knew that I'd need the help of a travel agent familiar with northern Scandinavia. A quick internet search led me to Kimkim, which had already done the work of planning the outline for a perfect trip. I had never used an internet based travel agent before, but the idea of using agents based where we would be traveling was quite appealing so I gave them a chance. I was very glad I did.

Balestrand was wonderful, probably the highlight of our trip, especially the Fjord boat trip there and from. The hotel was also quite special

We also very much enjoyed our time with David, our guide in Bergen. It was more like a friend of friend showing you his city than a stuffy tour. That was perfect for us.

Overall fantastic trip · Norway - Sep 16 - Sep 23, 2019
Overall, we ended up having a fantastic trip. our 2 private guides (Curtis from viking Biking in Oslo and Romain in Bergen) were both excellent and very informative. The Fjord cruise and Flåm railway were also highlights. On the flip side, we had some challenges along the way that could have been avoided with careful planning. For example, it took awhile for the hotel to find our reservation at the Thon hotel in Oslo because it was booked under Axel Garber, our guide. I also had to email... read more

Ingrid was lovely to chat with when planning our trip. Her responses were always very prompt. However, we were planning a trip for Bergen for mid-late September. Our group would have greatly appreciated and benefited from having her insider perspective shared ahead of time. For example, many of the attractions on the Bergen card (which she sold us as part of the package) were closed or on very limited hours due to the fact that it was “late” in the season. Additionally, we feel Ingrid... read more

Bergen was a ton of fun too - great charm, cool vibe along with tons of great shops and restaurants / pubs!
Transportation throughout the country - airfare, buses, trains and taxis - were all super easy and convenient too.

Ingrid did an excellent job putting our busy trip together.We only had 6 days in that beautiful country and we got the most out of it !Even on that rainy day we had in Rosendale. Thanks for Sjur and Laila.
Ingrid booked everything (train and ferry tickets,glacier tour, hotels) for us so we did not have to worry about those... read more
Brønnøysund to Stockholm · Norway - Aug 15 - Aug 30, 2019
Emily did a super good job building a trip around my existing constraints and interests. Two wishes for the kimkim platform:
- Itemized cost shown both as the trip gets built and when I’m billed.
- Not asking me to review twice, once in TrustPilot and once here.
Fantastic holiday · Norway - Aug 4 - Aug 14, 2019
We had a fantastic holiday in Norway. Our 11 day trip was planned and booked last minute and the KimKim service in designing the itinerary and booking hotels was definitely something we could not have done at such short notice.
All the hotels had distinctive character - we particularly liked the Steens Hotel in Bergen, the Knutholmen in Kalvåg, and the Eplet in Solvorn.
Western Norway's Rivers, Islands & Fjords - 11 Days · Norway - Aug 18 - Aug 29, 2019
Ingrid did an amazing job of organizing our trip, keeping us informed, sending appropriate materials and tickets in a timely manner, and answering our questions with helpful answers. Both of our city guides, Stig and Flemmet, gave us unique perspectives of their cities, an off the beaten path stroll through the city and excellent recommdations of where to eat. Hiking through the hills around Kalvag was enjoyable, even in the light rain. The ride on the ferry from Bergen to Aurland was... read more
Southern Norway's Fjord Coast - 8 Days · Norway - Aug 16 - Aug 25, 2019
I cannot thank Nina & kimkim enough for the help planning this trip. My friend and I had an absolutely incredible time in Norway – we were able to fit in so many activities/locations in only 10 days because the trip was so well coordinated. It was the perfect mix of cities and smaller villages (Oslo, Balestrand, Bergen, and Rosendal) – there is nothing we would have changed.
This was also a VERY last minute trip and I was genuinely nervous we were going to show up in Norway with no plans... read more
Ultimate Norwegian Fjord Road Trip – 10 Days · Norway - Aug 14 - Aug 23, 2019
Ingrid and all the supporting specialists were very helpful to make sure our Norway trip was amazing. All of our activity requirements were executed, which made for a VERY active vacation. We expressed that we wanted to do a lot of hiking, kayaking, eating and fly fishing. They were very much able to piece together a trip that made for a lot of memories and epic photos.
I will definitely use Kim Kim again, as having a specialist select your hotels, itinerary, book train/bus tickets,... read more
Oslo, Bergen & Southern Norway - 8 Days · Norway - Aug 20 - Aug 27, 2019
When we were planning our trip to Norway, we had two goals in mind - to see as much of this beautiful country as possible and to discover my family roots. With Linda Verasdal's help, we were able to do both. I presented her with a wishlist and she made it all happen. We like to travel on our own and not with a tour group but Linda took care of all of our hotel reservations, train tickets, domestic plane flights and great suggestions for excursions. We also LOVED our local guides -Stig in... read more
Outdoor Norway | Oslo, Balestrand, Trolltunga, Bergen - 10 days · Norway - Aug 13 - Aug 22, 2019
We had a GREAT trip! everything went smoothly and we had a fantastic time! Highlights were the Trolltunga hike, the Oslo-to-Myrdal train (and the Flam train), and Fjærland, but everything was fantastic.
One thing that would be helpful is including a short overview of how to see schedules / pay for public transportation. It wasn't hard for us to figure out, but would be good to have folks download things like the Skyss app if they are taking a lot of buses and light trains.
The itinerary that Fridur provided was just perfect for us (lots of activities and sightseeing).

Thanx Ingrid. Norway was great. So friendly, clean and beautiful. Kelvag was very special.
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!

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.

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
Trip to Norway · Norway - Aug 2 - Aug 12, 2019
Overall the trip was great. The activities were fantastic and varied, and it was all relatively seamless. 2 areas of feedback:
1. Some of the hotel information wasn't provided until a little later, so it gave us a little anxiety since it was our first time using the service.
2. The first hotel took payment from us even though the hotel was paid by kimkim. I think that was the hotels fault though.
Besides those 2, I am very satisfied with the service!
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
Explore Oslo and Tromsø | Hiking and biking · Norway - Aug 6 - Aug 10, 2019
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 tim
