How do I get to Nordfjordeid from Oslo or Bergen by bus?
From Oslo or Bergen you can take the express bus
Time by bus:
from Bergen – Nordfjordeid: 6 hrs
from Oslo – Nordfjordeid: 9-9,5 hrs
Tickets can be ordered online here.
From Oslo you can take the night bus directly from Oslo International Airport Gardermoen at 22.55 (10.55 pm) to Nordfjordeid with arrival there the next day at 06.53 am. This means this corresponds well with the start of the trip. It is safe to travel by bus, and because of the long summernights, if you not sleep on the bus, you will still see a lot.
How do I get to Nordfjordeid by boat?
From Bergen, you can take the boat along the Coast to Måløy. This is a very scenic 5 hr boat trip, recommended (can be booked online at Norled ).
Timetable boat on weekdays and Sunday: boat from Bergen 16:30 arrival Måløy 21:10 (or alternative departure Bergen 08:00 arrival Måløy 12:40).
MIND: on Saturdays the boat only leaves from Bergen at 14.15 with arrival in Måløy 18:50 (this is relevant for the Hiking the Fjords week that starts on July 21!), and there is no early bus on Sunday morning. Please take the bus to Nordfjordeid upon arrival, 18.50, and book an overnight stay in Nordfjordeid, see below.
Alternative 1: Stay in a hotel in Måløy and the next morning take the bus to Nordfjordeid.
Hotels in Måløy: Thon hotel Måløy or Torget hotel (website only in Norwegian, you can send them an e-mail for booking request). Take the bus the next morning at 08.15 am (on weekdays, NOT on Sunday July 21!)), arrival in Nordfjordeid 09.15 am. More information about the bus schedule: EnTur (ticket can be bought on the bus). The final bus schedule is first available 3 months before travel date.
Alternative 2: Or upon arrival in Måløy take the corresponding bus to Nordfjordeid (leaves 21.12, or on Saturdays at 18.50) the same evening. If you do this please inform the crew on the boat from Bergen that you are planning on taking the corresponding bus because they will inform the bus in case they are delayed.
Hotels in Nordfjordeid: Scandic hotel Nordfjord, or a little cheaper Bryggen hotel Nordfjordeid
You can also try Booking.com or AirBnB.
The meeting point in Nordfjordeid will be at the bus station.
How do I get to Nordfjordeid by plane?
From Oslo and Bergen you can take a domestic flight to Sandane airport with Wideroe. There is an airport shuttle taxi from Sandane to Nordfjordeid (takes appr. 45-60 minutes). Mind that upon the end of the hiking week, the timetable of the flights do not correspond seamless, so this has to be verified by us.
How do I get to Nordfjordeid by rental car?
If you prefer to rent a car we would recommend you to fly in to Bergen as the distance is much shorter.
When to leave Nordfjordeid
How do I travel from Nordfjordeid?
At the end of the trip we would not advice you to take the boat to Bergen, because of the timetables.
We would rather advice to take the bus to Bergen or Oslo (if that is where you are heading to).
The expressbusses timetables can be found on Nettbuss.
It is also possible to order a Flytaxi. To do so you can call the following phone number +47) 57 86 05 00. (NOTE: This has to be done one day before travelling with Flytaxi.
The cabins you will stay might vary per tour. Sometimes the last cabin will be closer to Stryn than Nordfjordeid, and you could look at busses from there. Please ask us for advice.

What are the meals like?
Breakfast with bread and/or cereals. Juice, milk, coffee, tea. Everybody makes their own lunch for taking on the trip and can fill their bottles with cold or hot drinks.
Dinner is a 2-course (starter or desert, and main course). Often local food like lam, deer, fish, chicken, pasta, rice, potatoes with fresh vegetables.
You can bring your own drinks and snacks if you want that.
We do not serve alcohol, but you can take it with you. Keep in mind that alcohol is very expensive in Norway. The best thing to do (so you do not have to bring it with you) to buy it taxfree (very reasonable prices) upon arrival at the airport in Ålesund (this is before you go through customs, so you have to follow the regulations. For amount of alcohol, you can bring to the country please check TOLL customs.)
