Thank you Linda and the Kimkim team for a wonderful, well planned holiday!
15 day | oslo - fjords and mountains- bergen - tromsø, Norway - Oct 2 - Oct 16, 2019
Wow! A magical trip to Norway! We started our journey in Oslo and ended in Tromsø. We opted to go with KimKim because the logistics we had in mind were more complicated than what we wanted to deal with... Definitely a very good decision on our part. I sent Andre a list of what we had in mind and he came through like a champ. Our desire was not to have to rent a car but travel using buses, trains, ferries and planes. Andre put it all together and made reservations for us a much as... read more
oslo | geilo | balestrand | bergen - 9 days, Norway - Sep 21 - Sep 27, 2019
My wife and I had the most amazing time travelling around Norway, this was very easily the best trip we've ever taken. We got to see some amazing sights, untouched beauty, and explore Norway in a way that its meant to be. Through our entire journey, we took trains, busses and ferries which gave us the opportunity to see some of the most stunning landscapes imaginable.
Fridur did such a good job of putting all this together, she was very responsive and always full of suggestions on what we... read more
Oslo, the fjords and bergen - 6 days, Norway - Oct 3 - Oct 8, 2019
My son and I were planning for a trip to Norway in early October, without knowing that it was the period in-between Summer and Winter when the standard Norway Nutshell tours were not available. Then we came across Kim Kim Travel and decided to give it a try.
The decision won us a wonderful trip. Our specialist Andre was instant with his responses. He was thoughtful in planning for our itinerary, and patient in answering my endless questions and requests. He even provided maps indicating... read more
Western norway's rivers, islands & fjords - 10 days, Norway - Sep 18 - Sep 25, 2019
All the hotels were great. All but 2 transportation arrangements went off without a flaw. Overall, we are very pleased with our visit to Norway. I am thankful that Ingrid helped me to arrange everything!
In Oslo, we liked the Thon Europa more than the Thon Spectrum. The Europa had a better breakfast buffet, was an easier walk from the train station & the neighborhood seems a bit better. Next door to the Europa is the Brunello Ristorante. You should recommend this to others! This was some... read more
Norwegian city, mountain & fjord adventure | hiking - 7 days, Norway - Sep 14 - Sep 20, 2019
My wife and I are so pleased we decided to hire Kimkim to plan our first trip to Norway. We had a limited time (6-7 days) and felt they did a wonderful job giving us the best itinerary for our interests/time constraints. The accommodations they selected were convenient and comfortable, the detailed itineraries they provided were extremely helpful (including maps, wayfinding info, etc.), and the guides they hired were professional and informative. If we had planned things ourselves we... read more
Western norway's fjord road trip - 8 days, Norway - Sep 20 - Sep 27, 2019
Andre was quick to respond and always accommodating. The hotels he chose were excellent, as were his suggestions for our day trips. We totally appreciated not having huge drives to make. His planning was superb!!! We can’t thank him enough for such an amazing experience!!!!!
How to spend two weeks in norway, Norway - Sep 2 - Sep 23, 2019
We had a very very positive experience each step of the way, from planning the trip with Emily (who listened very carefully to what we wanted, found the kinds of places we wanted to stay at, and developed an excellent itinerary that allowed us to see and experience truly beautiful places) , to the places we stayed, all that we saw, our hiking and kayaking experiences, and especially with our guide, Thomas Riis. He was an exceptional guide, outstanding in every way. Thomas was friendly,... read more
Western norway's fjord road trip, bergen | aurland | solvorn | geiranger | hjørundfjord | ålesund - 11 days , Norway - Sep 16 - Sep 26, 2019
We took an 11 day road trip through Norway that was a fantastic experience. We wanted to be on our own for the most part, but appreciated having the hotels and activities suggested for us. From there, Fridur helped us to customize something that worked for us. Fridur was also VERY helpful mid-trip proactively helping us to manage detours caused by unexpected weather.
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.
Norway slow travel: oslo, aurland & bergen - 7 days, Norway - Sep 17 - Sep 24, 2019
Rose and I could not be more impressed with the attention to detail that we received from our Kim Kim contact - Julia . Her attention to detail could not have been better
The Trip Julia put together for us was the perfect way to start discovering Norway.
Excellent accommodation in the perfect position to see all the local sites along with the right adventures that suited our style of traveling. This allowed us the time and space to really enjoy the sheer beauty of Norway.
We will certainly be traveling with Kim Kim in future

6 days in norway, Norway - Sep 3 - Sep 8, 2019
We had an excellent experience with Kimkim in planning our trip. We gave Vilde the general outline of where we wanted to begin and end and she planned it all, hotels and excursions. We drove over 650 miles during our stay and thoroughly enjoyed the drive and landscapes. We loved the Dragsvik Fjordhotel , Bergens Bors hotel, the Fjord Cruise and walking tour of Bergen. Our guide, ( forgotten his name) during our walking tour was great. We were a bit more vigorous than his typical clients, so... read more
Bergen | balestrand | geilo | oslo - 9 days , Norway - Sep 7 - Sep 15, 2019
My two sons (19 & 21) and I wanted to visit Norway but due to my work schedule I left everything to the last minute. I found Kim Kim per chance on the Internet and decided based on their excellent reviews for Norway to give them a try. I completed the questionnaire and Fridur quickly contacted me. She was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and patient in helping us to plan our Itinerary. She focused on basing it on our own special requests - active with multiple hiking days in Bergen and... read more

Oslo to bergen fjord adventure, Norway - Aug 23 - Aug 29, 2019
We were so happy with our kimkim experience! André was responsive and very nice to deal with. He set up an itinerary that reflected our interests. All transportation, information, transfers, hotels were nicely chosen and there were no problems or glitches. André gave us great recommendations for restaurants, as did our guides in Bergen, David and Vilde. These two were so important in terms of our overall experience in Scandinavia. They were knowledgeable and fun; it was like going around... read more
Summer tour in norway's fjords - 14 days, Norway - Aug 22 - Sep 1, 2019
Outstanding service from Ingrid and the KimKim team before and during my trip - including helping me though an unplanned hiccup in my itinerary!
I absolutely loved my stay in the Lofoten Islands and especially Reine. I'll definitely head back there some day to explore some hikes I had to cancel due to the inclement weather I experienced on my trip.
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.
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure - 6 days , Norway - Aug 19 - Aug 24, 2019
We had a wonderful time in Norway thanks to the Kim Kim team!
To everybody who got involved during our vacation.I would definitely recommend the Kim Kim crew to anyone.
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.

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.
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).
Western norway's rivers, islands & fjords - 10 days, Norway - Aug 15 - Aug 24, 2019
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!

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.

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

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.

3 weeks | the best of norway , Norway - Jun 20 - Jul 10, 2019
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. The process of communication and enquiries to shape the schedule has been very easy and seamless. Linda was able to make detailed and immediate feedbacks to address my questions or concerns. My partner and I have bought two more guide books for reference and we were constantly surprised by how the most... read more

(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.
3 weeks | the best of norway , Norway - Jun 20 - Jul 10, 2019
We had a wonderful time and it was very well planned and stress free. Ingrid did a wonderful job both before, during the planning stages and once we arrived at each destination all was arranged perfectly. Oslo was a beautiful city Stig Torset our city guide was personable and so much fun to be with. He made our tour around the city personal and enjoyable. Our stay in Stavanger was also lovely. We hiked to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) with a guide Raul "Off the Beaten Path" recommended by... read more
Explore bergen, fjords & waterfalls - 5 days, Norway - Jul 4 - Jul 8, 2019
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

A big thank you to the Kimkim team and particularly Ingrid. We could not have asked for better planning and would highly recommend this company if you are planning a trip to Norway.
On a personal note
Thank you Ingrid for for everything you did for us we had the most amazing time and the scenery was breathtaking. This is a trip we will never forget and having it organised for us took any stress away and allowed us to just enjoy beautiful , no breathtaking Norway.
We loved everything Ingrid,... read more
Experience norway | aurland village, Norway - Jun 30 - Jul 3, 2019
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.

Western norway's rivers, islands & fjords, Norway - Jun 28 - Jul 6, 2019
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. The travel details were very specific and all the connections etc. worked like clockwork. All the hotels were first rate. We had some excellent dinners, especially in Alesund... read more

Western norway's rivers, islands & fjords - 11 days, Norway - Jun 6 - Jun 16, 2019
Thanks for a fantastic trip. We loved the experience and our time spent in Norway. Thank you to Andre for making it a memorable occasion. From tailoring the experience to our liking to being flexible in adding day guides at places we wanted. I have to say overall we were very satisfied.
I do have two suggestions for improvements. Both are not under your control, so just future recommendations. 1. Oslo city center is very noisy during the summer evenings and without air conditioning we... read more
Western norway fjord road trip - 8-10 days, Norway - Jun 18 - Jun 27, 2019
Trip was great. Andre was very responsive to our questions. We had a tour guide cancelation on the first day and he quickly found us another. He also quickly helped verify our kayaking trip when the company had questions about a voucher #.
A few thoughts about the locations:
We didn't know what to expect at each location, and relied on the local experts for that. That being said, Bergan was a nice jumping off point. Flam was probably our favorite mainly because of the bike ride and... read more

Linda planed our Norway trip with not very much notice and the trip was absolutely amazing!!! It was exactly what we want and even with one minor issue which Linda dealt with immediately even though it was not her fault. Would highly recommend Linda for organizing a trip again.

Norway's ultimate fjord adventure - 7 days , Norway - Jun 17 - Jun 23, 2019
My adult daughter and I just returned from a seven day Norway Fjord and Viking Adventure (June 17 through June 23, 2019) and could not have been more satisfied with our journey that was handcrafted for our special interests by Linda.
Linda collaborated with us every step of the planning. She was accessible and responsive, listening to our "wants" list and devising an itinerary that included well known sites of interest as well as our own unique jaunts. The end result surpassed our wildest... read more

10 days in norway: 7 unique itinerary ideas, Norway - May 28 - Jun 8, 2019
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. Julia was spot on with her advice and location choices. 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. Active Tromso... read more
Nordic adventure for outdoor lovers - 5 days, Norway - Jun 10 - Jun 14, 2019
Ingrid was great and the experiences were truly amazing. We had a great trip with wonderful memories from activities that would have been very difficult to find or book on our own. I highly recommend!
Norwegian highlights: oslo, bergen & the sognefjord - 7 days, Norway - May 31 - Jun 6, 2019
I enjoy planning and booking trips on my own, however for this last minute vacation I felt pressured. We would be meeting family in Europe then travelling on together for just 5 full days in Norway. The itinerary (Norway in a Nutshell based) involved several connections by train and ferry at the beginning of tourist season, and I was worried that by the time I did my research the tickets we wanted would be unavailable. So I decided to let kimkim expert Andre handle everything. Good move;... read more
Norway's epic hiking excursion, Norway - May 28 - Jun 2, 2019
Ingrid was wonderful. I'm so grateful for her expertise and excellent communication. Because of Ingrid, I'll definitely return to KimKim for future trip planning.
Oslo | fjord road trip | lofoten - 14 days, Norway - May 26 - Jun 7, 2019
We just finished a two week trip, starting with the western fjords of Norway and ending in the stunning Lofoten Islands. Linda at KimKim helped organize the entire trip, including hotels, transportation and activities.
Norway is a stunningly beautiful country and the fjords did not disappoint. We drove the coastal roads as opposed to taking a cruise, the only downside of which is that you go very slowly so be sure to include that in your planning. We found the hotels lovely--very... read more
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure , Norway - May 26 - May 31, 2019
The itinerary that Ingrid and KimKim put together for us was amazing! We spent 5 nights moving from Oslo, to Balestrand then finishing in Bergen. As we did not really know too much about Norway and really did not have the time to plan our own trip, Ingrid put together a trip we will never forget! The hotels she recommended were all exceptional and we really enjoyed the contrast of seeing a large city like Oslo but then experiencing the natural wonders of Norway as we made our way to the... read more
Western norway fjord road trip - 8 days, Norway - May 13 - May 20, 2019
I want to specifically thank Ingrid for planning our family vacation. I chose to book lodging ourselves and left activities and local transportation in Norway to Ingrid. She gave us an itinerary which covers all places and activities on our wish list. She planned for our local transportation and transfers so we could focus on the pristine sceneries and fun activities without worrying about many logistics on self tours while not being in restricted times while traveling in a group tour. ... read more
Norwegian city, mountain & fjord adventure, Norway - May 23 - May 28, 2019
Ingrid is the best! She customized a perfect itinerary for travels to Norway. There were several transfers and she scheduled everything seamlessly. Especially enjoyed the lodges she booked for us as they were quaint with kind hosts and good breakfasts (vathnalhasen and midntes to name a few). The Flåm railway was also a highlight of our trip. Everything from renting a car through Kjetil to detailed itineraries and directions was exceptional. During the trip we had questions and Ingrid... read more

Ingrid did a fabulous job communicating with me in the planning and was very receptive to all my questions and quick to respond.The hotels chosen were all good. The itinerary with the maps was absolutely wonderful to have and and really made going from location to location very easy. She also was great in an in an emergency situation when my husband’s airline went on strike and he was... read more
Oslo to bergen fjord adventure - 5 days , Norway - May 12 - May 16, 2019
My family and I just got back from Norway few days back and we're currently nursing on our severe jet lag. But despite the lack of sleep, we all had an amazing time there. The itinerary planned by Ingrid was so much fun and many of her suggestions outside of our initial itinerary were even better!
We really want to thank Kimkim and Ingrid for this lovely and well planned trip. The hotels provided were comfortable and surpassed our expectations. Other than a minor issue with the train... read more
