Trip Planning Question

This will be our first time in Northern Europe. We are planning a trip to visit Geiranger in early of September. We are two adults with a two years old baby will travel from Stockholm to Geiranger (not sure if we should stop at Oslo or other place to break the long trip) by train. What's the best option to get to Geiranger? Take train to Åndalsnes then take the bus to Geiranger? Is the bus still available from Åndalsnes to Geiranger? Which website to book the bus ticket?

We also have some questions regarding taking the cruise tour to geirangerfjord from Geiranger? Which companies are available in early of September? The cruise tour is a day trip? Return to the departure point?

What are the options to travel from geiranger to Stavanger? We are not going to rent a car.

Thanks a lot!

Traveling from Geiranger to Stavanger is cumbersome by land, and not very enjoyable for toddler. Take a flight from Ålesund to Stavanger. www.sas.no

For Geiranger, fly to Ålesund and rent a car. The Åndalsnes-Geiranger bus only runs in peak season.

September is actually late season and Geiranger is a dead end. If Your aim is to see one of the great Norwegian fjords consider Lysefjord at Stavanger instead, Hjørundfjord as a cruise from Ålesund or Norway in a Nutshell from Bergen.
