A shore excursion from a Viking Cruise. A scenic bus ride to some beautiful beaches (within the Arctic Circle). Interesting, but not for more than an hour.

Amazing place. The Lofotens are worth the trip in Norway alone. If you happen with bad weather they are insignificant but with the sun they are beautiful. It is worth turning them slowly, deviating from the only main road. Every corner is to be photographed...More

Gravdal. Nothing much there except the Dragon Church, a beautiful wooden building dating from about 1905 I think. Lovely, well kept wooden houses, a supermarket and a derelict hotel. If you go in on a cruise you will probably be tendered in but NOT to...More

This island has not much to see if you did not book any shore excursion, which we didn't. Luckily there is an organized local bus tour of 1.5 hours that will bring you around the island for some sight seeing. If you choose only to...More

I was on a guided tour from Hurtigruten. We started from Stamsund and drove through the nice scenery of Norwegian mountains. The scenery was amazing, but I had wanted to see the Lofoten Cathedral. We were stopped by road work at many places, so we...More

I would suggest you get to Trondheim by plane and then look at RometoRio on your browser. It will give you all the alternatives. We found it very reliable getting around Norway.
