Alesund , Andalsnes , Gieranger - late May

Hi All:

We have about three days in the Alesund - Andalsnes area in late May.

Roughly we are thinking about the following itinerary :

May 23. 9 AM Alesund - Drive to Atlantic Road for the day

Should we stay in Andalsnes, or Alesund ----> if trollstigen is closed then Andalsnes to Geiranger will be a longer drive, ?

May 24: Drive to Geirangerfjord and SkageFla hike?

May 25: Romsdalseggen Hike : Will this be do-able and recommended at this time of the year.If not are there are hikes you can recommend for this area and time of the year?

May 26: Back to Oslo - Is there a public transport option that will get us to Oslo by 1 pm.

Is there a way for us to do this itinerary with a car for two days and public transportation for the rest?

I think Romsdalseggen is doable, at least you can do a nice part up from Åndalsnes

Oslo is some 7 hours from Åndalsnes. So 1 pm (13:00) is difficult. Fly or drive

Thank you.

If we wanted to go to Geiranger the next day after doing the Atlantic Road drive, would you recommend that we stay in Alesund or Andalsnes?

Definitely Åndalsnes. Less backtracking, and Trollstigen should be done early before the hoardes are coming.

Yes, opened four days ago. Geiranger- Langvatn is opened, too.
