4 days in Oslo

Hi,

We are planning 4day stopover in Oslo in June. We will be landing in Oslo on 5th June. Thinking about taking a road trip to Bergen from Oslo on 6th and back in Oslo on 8th.

From what I have seen 8n the web, the drive looks good.

We need some help on these:

1. . is there any town in between Bergen and Oslo where it is good to stay overnight?

2. How easy is the drive between Oslo and Bergen?

Thanks in advance for the help.

Please check out https://goo.gl/maps/6PRn4CKMUX92

Silver minds in Kongsberg, WW2 history and the cable car in Rjukan, Baroniet in Rosendal, Bergen city, Flåm, Borgund Stave church, Lillehammer... I think you should more than enough to explore on a 3-days drive... but, you'll quickly understand that you should add a week or two..;)

The drive is "easy" if you're used to narrow, tiny mountains roads in all kind of weather, and there's still snow in the mountains, but the roads are clear...

I would consider more around Hardangerfjord based on the good Google Maps posted in #1:

https:/…hardanger

Driving Fjord Norway is not dangerous but very intenesively and always demanding mental and physical attendance. It is very different to few hours straight motorway and takes longer time - even than Google Maps shows optmistically.

There are some things you need to be prepared for driving Norwegian, roads, tunnels, ferries, mountain passes and so on. Tips and photo examples you can find here (German website, use traslation brower plugin / add-on):

Another question. Do we have to make advanced reservations in Bergen hotels? Is it peak season there?

Yes, June is busy with festivals, tourists and still business travellers around and they all compete for the best available rooms. Last minute deals are rare, so if you know your date, why not book in advance. You can book a refundable rate if you are unsure.
