The staff here was friendly and helpful. Our purpose for visiting was to buy ( 30 NOK) a booklet describing a self guided walking tour of Ålesund. Very worthwhile. It took us about two hours to complete the tour

Very friendly and helpful staff. Particularly since, as pensioners, we received good discounts on a number of tours - at least two at half price; a fact not mentioned in our travel brochure...Highly recommended.

Greetings...need your help, My husband Mike and I are flying into Bergen on May 14th. Im trying to plan a fjord trip which would include the two major fjords, Geirangerfjord and Sognefjord. Think I have two options using public transit and cruise lines/ferries, train, and buses. 1: Bergen 2 nights - then Fly into Alesund... stay 3 nights…have adventures including visit to Geirangerfjord ...then fly back to Bergen. Next day take Kringom Ferry to Flam passing thru fjords …stay 2 nights in Flam…then take Bergen train from Flam thru Mrydal to Bergen. (Or reverse this trip…Does it matter whether I take the train first then end the trip using a cruise or ferry line?) Then fly out that evening to Paris. Or: 2. We make a giant loop using public transportation to visit both major fjords. Am I correct that this can be done? Bergen (2 nights) - Alesund (3 nights) - Balestrand or Flam (2 nights) - Ferry or Cruise ship thru the Sognefjord to Bergen. Can either of these be completed as I outlined? Any information and suggestions you can give me would be very appreciated. Thanks in advance, Mary
