Stop off between Bergen and Oslo

We're planning a trip to Norway in February, we're doing Tromso and Bergen and then heading back to Oslo.

We've got two nights available from leaving Bergen in Wednesday morning to arriving in Oslo Friday night and looking for options to do on the way.

We were thinking of hiring a car and driving from Bergen to Olso? Are there any recommendations of places to stop along the way, either somewhere for two night that we can explore from or two places to stay and explore- we're flexible

Thanks for your help

I would not really recommend to drive long distance in winter conditions as you never know what the weather gods can bring in February and you may find yourself stuck in a blizzard. There will aslo be drop-off charges if you rent in Bergen and deliver in Oslo. My best recommendation would be to take the train between the two cities.

I agree with Klima - take the train, and consider the Norway in a Nutshell route via Voss, Gudvangen and Flåm - see http://www.fjordtours.no/ for timetables.

Out of season there is no much on the way except for the scenery, but staying in Flåm would break up a long day and mean that you could do the train journey Myrdal-Oslo the next day in daylight. Note that you can save by booking the train journey Myrdal-Oslo with minipris tickets at http://www.nsb.no/?lang=en_US. The rest of the journey is also on public transport which you won't need to book and can pay as you go.

Search the forum - this is a frequent topic.

If you really want to stop 2 nights and you are not on a tight budget then consider Finse 1222 for the second night http://www.finse1222.no/en/home.html. The station right outside the hotel is on the line Myrdal-Oslo. Highly recommended if the weather is good - you could try out some cross country skiing.
