Norway's a deceptively large country with many, many small towns and interesting regions, all of which are separated by large distances. This book scratches the surface of all of them.
I found the guide fairly weak for southwestern Norway (Stavanger & Bergen areas). While it did direct me to the more obvious tourist areas, I felt as if I had no idea about 90% of the other things I could do.
In summary, because they try to cover the whole country in one book, the coverage ... Read More
I've been recently travelling all around Norway, from South to North, including the Arctic archipelago of Svalbard. I found this guide generally very useful, but weak when it comes to talk about the Nordland, the Far North (Troms and the Finnmark) and Svalbard. For example, Lofoten is surely a fascinating place especially for hikers - like I suppose the author is - but many description are exhagerated and you might be disappointed once there - like I was. The Nordland is not sufficiently covered and ... Read More
Deanna Swaney (along with and Mark Griffith's outstanding mapping and design) have produced the definitive travel guide on Norway.
Deanna Swaney's writing is both engaging and descriptive. In my "must have" list, to qualify a guide as "excellent", are easy to read maps. This book has the best maps found in any Norway travel guide. The superb information and recommendations are reliable and though the publication date is 1999 (thus the information is pre '99). Norway is ... Read More
I went to Norway in the summers of 2000 and 2001, and both times I brought a Lonely Planet book. I found them to be very informative, and when I went from Oslo-Bergen-Trondheim-Oslo, they were very helpful in finding hostels and places to eat. Overall, it was a good buy. Compared to the Fodor's guide, this one was aimed more to budget travellers (i.e. students).
During my two-week whirlwind driving tour around southern Norway, I used both LP Norway along with Fodor's Norway, and found Lonely Planet to be much more informative and better at capturing the essence of the country. I'm basing my opinion on both this trip and my previous experience living in Stavanger for 3 years as a teenager. This year's journey covered a lot of ground, originating in Stavanger, heading south along the coast through Kristiansand, northeast through Oslo, north through Lillehammer, ... Read More
