    Driving to Bergen

    Hi all,

    We are diving out of Bergen next year

    The suggestion has been made that we drive to Bergen. This would include ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland, and from Hirtshals to Bergen. Otherwise, it seems to be motorway most of the way.

    Has anyone done this? Is it feasible? Any obvious pitfalls?

    Annie

    Yes - its a loooong drive though - you will almost certainly need to stay overnight somewhere in Germany as the drive is about 12 hours so not really feasible in a one hit unless you do shifts. We stopped in the Ruhr one way and in "can't remember" on the way back! Its pretty much motorway all the way but only two lanes in each direction (and quite an old and busy road) for quite a lot of it so can be slower than you think

    Well, the ferries are now booked, so I guess the road trip is on.

    Anyone know the best non road way to get to Bergen? Norwegian allow only 40kg, BA stop soon and SAS are not direct.

    We flew BA Business Class from Heathrow 250 with x2 32kg bags and 23kg hand luggage. Was cheaper than paying the extra for additional bag.
    There were a few in Party who's bags arrived on the later flight mind. Bob Anderson on The Halton minte be worth messaging.

    I'm flying with klm from Birmingham next year. 377 including 2x23kg cases. Best overall deal I could find.
