Trip review
Norway

loved their trip to Norway

The entire trip was wonderful. I first visited Oslo for an evening, which was enough in the city as I was more anxious to get out of the city and into the wilderness. The first town of Flam was especially enjoyable, as was the scenic train to Flam…this should be on everyone’s itinerary. The cruise through the Fjords on my way to Bergen was also spectacular; especially with a visit from some killer whales in the Fjords that is apparently a very rare sighting. Next I visited Tromso, what a neat town that is. Saw the Northern Lights on two separate occasions, went husky sledding, reindeer sledding, and whale watching. Even though we didn’t see any whales on this trip, the scenery was spectacular and well worth the trip. Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better week in Norway, and was very glad and thankful to Anne with Evaneos for arranging the itinerary, and for her excellent communication even after business hours.

Best parts:
The trip was absolutely incredible! I couldn’t have setup a better itinerary on my own, and I'm thankful I came across Evaneos. The train ride and evening spent in Flam were the best, as well as the excursions in Tromso.
Worst parts:
There wasn’t much at all that I didn’t like. The only thing I would suggest would be to incorporate more 'Airbnb' type accommodations to give an even more 'local' feel. However, the hotels that Anne picked out for me were wonderful...especially the hotel in Flam!

Thank you so much Jeff for your kind words. It has been such a pleasure working with you. I 'travelled' a little with you through our communication along the way and I was as thrilled as you were.

I 'travelled' a little with you through our communication along the way and I was as thrilled as you were. Imagine seeing Killer Whales in the Nærøyfjord while taking the ferry, never happened before, you are one lucky guy. Thank you also for your feedback about missing the 'AirBnB' feel, I am sorry but Norway is not well developed at that type of home stays (it is not really in the nature of Norwegians to do that, they are quite private about their homes, so they are rare). I hope we can welcome you back sometimes in summer, so we can take you out hiking and kayaking in the Fjords, and you are absolutely welcome to come and visit our sheepfarm in the Fjords. Kind regards from the Fjords of Norway, AnneSee more
