For years I have been enticed by this bucket-list country with the promise of majestic fjords, modern cities, and legends of Vikings and trolls. You will need some time to see the entire country with many of the cities separated by good distances. If you are like me and many others in corporate America, you may only have a solid week to devote to the trip before you have to return your day job. So I recommend sticking with the Western Fjord region for your first visit, and on your return visit, venture further north. So without furher ado, here it is — the best 7 day itinerary for your first trip to Norway. Get ready to experience the cosmopolitan capital, Oslo, charming Bergen, the fairytale city of Alesund, and quaint Geiranger, while taking in the unspoiled, magnificent scenery of the fjords. Day 1 and 2: Oslo — A cosmopolitan capital with Scandinavian flair. Plan to stay in the city center, as close to the train station as possible.
It may see hundreds of thousands of visitors each season arriving by cruise ship, ferry, tour bus, and car, but the town itself is quite small and sleepy with only about residents. For most people, a day in Geiranger to see the fjord would suffice. However, I think Geiranger is one of those fjord towns that is worth the overnight stay. Doing so will allow you to take in the spectacular scenery at a relaxing pace. There are quite a few ways to get to Geiranger depending on where you are coming from.

I was lucky with my TBM. I would go ahead and make boundaries with the conversation about kids and church, if that is your preference. Are there things you've had to compromise on to mutually make it work. No easy answers here. Almost everything is complicated. If you don't mind some slightly off-topic advice, I can assure you that you will meet plenty of other beautiful, interesting women going forward.
