First question: We are considering doing some or all of the Rallarvegen cycling trail from Hallingskarvet to Flam and wondered if the snow will be clear enough by that time to do all of it. If we do the cycling then we will stay the night in Flam or somewhere nearby and then continue on to Bergen.
We will stay 2-3 nights in Bergen and then must return to Oslo to fly home. Would the express boat to Balestrand and then to Flam be a more scenic route than returning the entire way by train? If we do that we are also considering spending a night in Balestrand before continuing to Oslo.
Last question: is there a lot to see and do in Bergen or is it more of a home base for the fjord sightseeing? We do like to hike and would love to find a good 2-3 hour scenic hike in one of our destinations.
Thank you for any guidance you can offer.
