Oslo | fjord road trip | lofoten - 14 days, Norway - May 26 - Jun 7, 2019

Traveler: Donna C. - Local specialist: Linda Veråsdal

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 Scandinavian chic in some cases- the people were friendly and the food excellent! A large breakfast buffet is always included in the hotel stay.
We did have to do some rescheduling of flights and hotels due to cancelled flights by the airlines and then one of us getting a terrible head cold. Linda was terrific--staying in touch with suggestions on flight and hotel alternatives right through the weekend until we got the new itinerary in place. She even found the name and address for a local Norwegian medical clinical! I can't tell you how much we appreciated knowing she was thinking of us and wanted our trip to go well. It was a real comfort.
We found KimKim online so there is always a bit of hesitancy with just blindly pressing "send"! We could not have been happier. Linda and KimKim were outstanding and Norway was fabulous.

Hi Donna, thank you so much for your lovely review! It was a pleasure to have you and your family in our country and happy you enjoyed it. It is a very good point - make sure to allow plenty of time when doing a road trip in Norway! It does take time, even though the km distance may not be massive :-) Plenty of scenic stop as well! I hope to see you back soon, either in Norway or another of our destinations!
