First time to norway. Itinerary help!

Hey guys

So am plnning to visit Norway on june 1st 2018. I will land in oslo at around 1 pm and my exit flight to Amsterdam is on 4th early morning, which gives me 3 full days in Norway.

I want to know where all i can go and what all i can see in this period. As per my plan, i decided to go to Stravenger and hike the pulpit rock on 2nd June. I have no idea what to do for the next 2 days but i wish to take a Fjord cruise , see the atlantic highway and fly my drone there and also see the midnight sun

Also , i love culture, museums and FOOD!

Can you give me a route plan and itinerary for this? Or do i have time to see more than what i planned ( i would love if i can )

Also should i keep Oslo as my base ?

Cheers

This is a very ambitious plan for 3 days. After Pulpit it will be June 2 afternoon or evening. All remaining is a long way driving back to OSL airport to reach your flight on june 4 morning. If you are fit you can try totake parts of scenic routes Hardanger and the Hardangervidda to drive back. But do not underestimate distances and the intensity of driving in Norway.

If you feel that this is too long just take E134 back an do a little detour of 40 km for an also scenic route.

It would be impossible to fit your wishes into a few days.

Atlantic Road is a looong way away from Stavanger and midnight sun is only in the north beyond the arctic circle. Not all days/nights are sunny, so just popping up there for an evening, you could very well find yourself with a cloudy night.

Stavanger has a fjord cruise on the Lysefjord.

It looks like you should fly into Bergen or Stavanger instead of Oslo (KLM has direct connections from Amsterdam).

Forget about the Atlantic Road, too far out of your path. If that is important to you, then Ålesund should be your base (direct connections from Amsterdam with KLM).
