You haven’t seen travel enthusiasm until you’ve seen karly07’s reviews from her 2008 trip to Norway. Even when one of the cars on her Flam Railway train fails, she’s cheerful: “With five brake systems, you can be sure that you are highly unlikely to start descending back down the track involuntarily.” We think it’s all the money she saved while exploring the notoriously pricey destination that kept her slap-happy.
The IgoUgo newcomer covers the Fjordlands on foot, car, and ferry, rolling with the punches and learning money-saving tips along the way. Some trip highlights include Norway’s official most beautiful town, the Troll Road and absurdly high Troll Wall, and a highly recommended bakery-turned-hotel that still serves up waffles every day at 3pm.
Those tips she picked up are wonderful as well; don’t miss her top five ideas for sticking to a budget if you, too, want to see Norway for less. It’s a beautiful thing.
