Oslo, Norway in a Nutshell, Bergen, Hurtigruten cruise review, Liz February 2014
"Everything went well and we are very, very happy with all the arrangements. Oslo to Bergen, Norway in a Nutshell: excellent trip by train, ship. The winter scenery was stunning. All connections – Oslo-Myrdal-Fram-Bergen worked well and went very smoothly. Recommend using the porterage service Oslo to Bergen, not cheap but very convenient.
Hurtigruten Tour: excellent. Good ship, cabin and food. Very pleased with the cruise and highly recommended. Of the excursions, the outstanding one for me was the trip to the North Cape. Excellent tour guide and the scenery in winter is stunning. Highly recommended. The Lofotr Viking Feast was the least satisfactory. Would have preferred to see a bit of Lofotr itself. The other excursions were good.
We would advise people visiting in winter to get a pair of studded ice grippers. These are essential if walking on icy surfaces."
