I just booked three days in Reine, Lofoten. We will have a rental car, which we are picking at the airport in Leknes. We have to eventually end up in Eastern Norway (Lillehammer, Hedmark, Oslo) to visit relatives, but we have about three days available for some other adventure. The choices may include:
1. Keep the rental car. Drive to somewhere not so far from a Lofoten. Where? I know nothing of the area.
2. Fly from Leknes to Bergen. Drive to Lillehammer, via Sogndal, Route 55...Loma...Otta...Lillehammer. I have done this three times in the past, and will never get tired of the beautiful scenery
3. Fly from Leknes to somewhere else. Where??? We are most interested in beautiful nature...fjords and mountains. (Okay, I know there are a lot of those in Norway, but not so much in the east, where my family lives). Three days at that "somewhere else" place, then fly to Oslo and visit the relatives.
I'd greatly appreciate any opinions. We are a healthy couple in our 60s. But not really into hiking or fishing.
