- Semi-active and lazy things to do in Norway?
Does anyone have any suggestions of things/places we should go and check out?
From my experience of Norway, you’ll be checking out the cash machines pretty often
Also there is a funicular railway up from the town to a plateau where you can wander in the wilderness without too much effort.
This is a nice thing to do, train up, wander around, wander back down again.
We went from Bergen to Geiranger in our camper van, pretty spectacular place and great walks and ferry rides along the fjord.Posted 9 months ago
Hi all, I’m off to Norway with my good lady for just over a week this summer. We’re not able to do the usual thing of biking/walking all day long so we’re hiring a camper in Oslo and planning on heading out towards Bergen.
Does anyone have any suggestions of things/places we should go and check out? We’ll probably have wetsuits with us for swimming, and are looking at a day or two of sea kayaking (not sure where yet).
Any other suggestions welcomed.Posted 9 months agonedrapierSubscriber
just driving around is a pretty good semi-lazy way of seeing the country. Not a lot of big, fast roads, so covering ground takes time and you do it slowly enough that you can look out the window, stop regularly to walk down to the river /fjord for swims/photos/strawberry picking.Posted 9 months agoredmistMember
Couple of famous hikes to do from Stavanger, Preiekestolen and the Kjerag boulder. Otherwise probably not too much different from what you’d get round Bergen or Geiranger way. Nice coastline down to Kristiansand too,south coast is supposed to be fantastic in the summer so might be good for lazy things to doPosted 9 months agoanusMember
Have you heard of the Norwegian tourist routes? It is probably worth a look to give you an idea of where you might drive? You can then check out as much or as little as you like form these routes as they have a lot of tourist spots, viewpoints, pavilions, installations, sculptures, architecturey things etc along the routes..Posted 9 months agoGlennQuagmireMember
Bergen is lovely, but like the rest of Norway, very expensive.
As suggested, take the Fløibanen to the summit of Mount Fløyen – if it’s clear the views are stunning. I believe there is a zipline which might be worth checking out?
Go the dockside when the fishing boats return and buy freshly cooked king prawns that could not be any fresher!
If you do head to Stavanger, Kjeragbolten is not too far so would be the thing to visit.Posted 9 months ago
