Northern Norway, Tromso, Lofoten Islands, and Oslo

  Traveler visited Norway in December 2017

“I would love to just explore the native wildlife, I love going for walks so trekking would be fantastic and would like to see as much as I could of the beautiful natural sights in Tromso and the Lofoten Islands. I only would like a couple of days in Oslo just to explore the city a bit I don't mind extending my time beyond a week if you think that I won't be able to fit this all in time.”

Hi ,

Thank you for your request. My name is Linda and I am the Norway expert.

For one week, it is difficult to cover Tromsø, Lofoten and Norway. It is quite some distance and a lot of your time will be lost in travelling. I suggest you chose two of the place, and arrive either Tromsø or near Lofoten, and depart Oslo.

If you are travelling on a budget, then Trømso is cheaper than Lofoten. As it takes some traveling to get to Lofoten. There are some nice excursions you can do in Tromsø, that will also get you out of town and close to nature.

If you go to Lofoten, you have stunning scenery, fishermen villages and great possibilities for outdoor life.

From Tromsø or Bodø/Narvik/Lofoten you fly to Oslo. Or take the train from Bodø..
