Trip review
Norway

loved their trip to Norway

We spent the least amount of time in Oslo, per Anne's recommendation, and that was a good move. It's like many other large European cities. We were glad to have more time for the Western Fjord region of Norway. The kids enjoyed the Viking Village and the Viking Museum the best. But there wasn't anything they didn't like on this trip. The itinerary Anne designed for us had a good mix of things to keep the kids interested. The kids also loved the breakfast buffet at all the hotels! My husband and I enjoyed the scenery, all of the different modes of transportation which allowed us to focus on the sights as opposed to having to drive.

Best parts:
We had packed a lot into our trip and Anne was able to work with local people to personalize our itinerary so we didn't feel like herded cattle in a large group. We were able to enjoy most of the highlights Norway offers - although we didn't make it up to the Arctic circle, maybe next time! We enjoyed the lovely scenery via both the train ride and the fjord cruises. Our whole family thought the Viking Village was a lot of fun and the private lunch in one of the Viking houses was really delicious & cozy. Our tour guide there was really getting into character and it made the visit very entertaining! The private taxi ride to visit the mountains, see snow, and see Borgund Stave was definitely well organized. All of the accommodations were great! We appreciated being able to all stay I the same room - which isn't always feasible due to the small room sizes in Europe. We were especially impressed by the free dinner that was served at all the locations: it's not like in the US where you get a few appetizers. It was really a healthy, quality meal.
Worst parts:
There wasn't anything we didn't like about our trip.

I am so happy to hear that you and your family had a great time in Norway. I am happy we were able to incorporate all your wishes, in relatively short time, although it did take detailed planning of all the logistics (with trains, boats, busses etc.), but we made it :-) And when you are ready for an Arctic Adventure (preferably in wintertime with Northern lights, dogsledding, reindeer herder family visit etc.) we are here to help you. Kind regards, AnneSee more
