Oslo trip in April 08

What would be the weather like in April? Is there still snowing and how much cloth I have to prepare.

I plan to take fjord tour (norway in a nutshell) from Oslo to Bergen but see so many hop-on, hope-off during the entire trip. Where can I keep my 24 inches bag or I should leave it at Oslo?

Should I do fjord tour myself or book the tour on website? What would be the difference?

Thanks,

You can check weather statistics and forecasts on this site:

April will be springtime, but you may have the ocassional snow - and most certainly it will still be snow in the mountain areas.

You will not face any problems in bringing your bag with you. Transfers are easy and within short distances.

In April you will be outside the season, and you will be able to book your journeys while you are here and get appropriate advice - depending upon how your itinerary is planned (do you go straight for the fjords, or do you make a stop in Oslo).

Hope this helps.

Regarding the April weather

There is a Norwegian rhyme that says that April, April doesn’t know what it will... and there's a true in that.

Some years ago there were almost summer temperatures in late April. Other years it has been snowing. You can't predict, and need to view the weather forecast. But hopefully it will be spring weather.

And as far as i know there aren’t any boats you can take to watch the fjords between Oslo and Bergen.

The fjords I think you are talking about is situated north of Bergen. But you can easily take air plain (you can often find cheap tickets at www.norwegian.no or sas.com ) and train www.nsb.no between Oslo and Bergen.

I must admit I have never seen the fjords myself...

It is possible to take fjord tours in April, but there is no boat going from Oslo-Bergen/ Bergen-Oslo. You must take bus or airplane.

I recommend you to take different Fjord tours in the different cities.
