Norway – 10 Day Itinerary
At Rampestreken viewpoint in Åndalsnes, Norway

I visited Norway in 10 days which sounds like a lot of days, depending on who you tell, but I have to say it was NOT ENOUGH.

But! It was my first time in Norway so I didn't want to take the gamble of spending more than 10 days in a place that might (or will) empty my wallet dry.

Here is a high level view of my 10 day itinerary:

  • Oslo (day 1)
  • Bergen (day 2-4)
  • Oslo (day 5-6)
  • Andalsnes (day 7-8)
  • Oslo (day 9-10)

I'll do more detailed posts of each day, but here's a little more detail of each day:
