In winter, try snow toboganing, take the trains right to the top of the slope, hire a tobogan, and prepare for hours of fun!
If you are looking for somewhere cheap to visit then maybe this is not the first place you should come to. That said, I think you will be impressed. I have found Oslo to be a wonderful city, with plenty to do, and you will find lots of clean air, unlike many capital cities around the world. There cannot be many Capitals that have miles and miles of forest walks and cross country ski-runs right on the doorstep, conveniently served by the excellent public transport system. I expect to be here...
When is the best time to visit Norway and how is the cost of living there? Would like to see the midnight sun and the aurora when do you suggest is the best time to go to Norway.
Do not miss to Visit Opera Hall in Oslo, Norway-new modern building -built as social meeting point, not just opera Hall.
I am travelling to Norway on a sightseeing trip on 12 February, arriving in Bergen late afternoon. I then move on to Flam, Oslo, Bodo & Kirkennes, arriving there on 18 Feb. If any one has any tips or pointers, they would be much appreciated. Thanks
