Norway's cities, mountains & fjords - 5 days, Norway - Jul 8 - Jul 12, 2018

Traveler: Sharon Z. - Local specialist: Linda Veråsdal

Linda, Vilde, and Julie collaborated to create a wonderful experience for me in Norway for 5 days on a budget of $1000. I managed to see the sights without being overwhelmed by a packed schedule. I love relaxing for an afternoon in Flam and the ferry ride from there to Bergen was probably the highlight of my trip. The only downside to my trip was that the timing of transportation somewhat limited what I could do in terms of activities in each city. I would get to a city with limited time to explore in the evening and only have a little time in the morning before I had to be at a train station. That said, the amount I got in given that I only had 5 days was definitely enough. It also left me spending less than I expected on activities leaving me with a bigger-than-expected food budget, which was great, because I could spend more exploring all the great food in Norway!
Overall, my experience booking through KimKim took almost ALL the stress out of planning the trip. My guides were extremely helpful in providing detailed information, even helping me track down which buses to take, maps of routes to/from train stations, etc. All I had to do was show up in a city and find something fun to do! Next time I plan a trip I will probably be coming back to KimKim, and will just keep an eye to arrival/departure times (maybe see if I can't do overnight trains and such)

Hi Sharon, thank you so much for your feedback. I am happy to read you enjoyed the KimKim experience and traveling with us in Norway.
Transportation is a challenge in Norway, as there are not many departures each day... We always try to tailor it so our travelers get the most out of each place they are visiting! Happy to read you managed to maximize your five days in Norway - and hope to see you on a KimKim experience again in near future.
