Western norway's fjord road trip, Norway - Jul 9 - Jul 17, 2019

Traveler: Michael W. - Local specialist: André Larsen

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 nice. But Alesund got a little old after 2 days. The food scene there was very disappointing. There was little variety and options were either on the high end (expensive) or on the low end (fast good). Big contrast to a city like Copenhagen, which is obviously much bigger, but has a lot more options, especially cheaper options when you think of a place like the Toverhallerne food market. Overall, we absolutely loved Norway. The country is incredible beautiful and picturesque, and many of the landscapes we saw left us speechless. We look forward to coming back in the future to visit and would definitely recommend kimkim and book through kimkim again. Also a shout out to Snorre, our guide in Bergen. We really enjoyed our walk around the city. Snorre took us to places and areas within the city that we definitely would've have seen ourselves. We were expecting a bit more of a history lesson on Bergen, based on Andre's description, but we really enjoyed getting to know Snorre and see the city through his eyes. Wish we had more time in Bergen!
