Ms C Smith  USA June 2018

Our 7th trip with Inntravel over 11 years, and we’re already plotting our next…

Hardangerfjord highlights for us include all three longer hikes (especially the superb Queen's Walk/Monks' Steps), sipping and savoring the local APAL eplebrennevin, and the Voss folk museum. Like others, we added an extra day at Hotel Ullensvang and did not regret it. The shorter walks were a bit more “town and tarmac” than we personally prefer, but they also gave us a rich sense of life and agriculture along the fjord edges. Norway is indeed serene!

We also thoroughly enjoyed both our Bergen city add-on at the start of the trip and Oslo city add-on at the end. It was fun to compare and contrast two remarkably different cities. The beautiful rail journey between Bergen and Oslo is a great way to gain a sense of the scenic interior of the country. Hotel Rosenkrantz in Oslo has a particularly fine breakfast buffet, and we appreciated their included light dinner on the upper floor in the evenings. The attached Brasserie Paleo restaurant at Rosenkrantz is exceptional – a splurge that is well worth it. The Viking Museum and Munch Museum in Oslo were both trip highlights for us.

All transportation was 'easy breezy', and thanks for ordering up the fine weather!

 

INNTRAVEL NOTE: As described above these customers enjoyed adding a short stay in Bergen, at the Clarion Hotel, and in Oslo, at the Thon Hotel Rosenkratz, at either end of their Serene Hardangerfjord walking itinerary.

What a wonderful holiday – travelling as a single I always appreciate Inntravel's attention to detail and know that everything is going to go to plan. Norway has long been on my bucket list and have just returned from a great holiday – hotels were all fantastic with the most wonderful views. I did enjoy the walks, especially the walk from Granvin Church to Ulvik and the walk up the Monks Steps to Nosi. I was very sad not to be able to continue up to the plateau as the weather closed in and would also have loved to walk the Queen's Walk, but once again the weather didn't play ball.

All the travel arrangements between villages went extremely well and I particularly enjoyed the bus trip from Northeimsund back to Bergen – we passed through some beautiful country. I'm so glad that I added an extra night onto my stay in Ullensvang and also had two extra nights in Bergen on the way out – both very well worth while.

I would say to others going on this holiday, good rain gear and suitable walking boots are essential – it can certainly rain. The weather can very quickly change from sunshine to rain then back again!

Thank you Inntravel for a wonderful introduction to Norway – I will certainly return.
