I will probably do the Funicular in Bergen and walk back down, and then just walk around Stavanger and Alesund. I do like a museum so maybe head there
We just kept trying online and managed to get tickets the day before - and there were 8 of us! We were chatting with a few who were literally straight off the ship as we docked and they all managed to get tickets - hope you manage to as I love the journey

So there is a website Split Ticketing which checks if your journey can be made cheaper by buying tickets in segments rather than the whole journey.

Take a look and see if it saves anything. It isn't advance prices so timing shouldn't matter.

Good news, because of your message, I kept trying, and I had success... So thankyou.
There were 2 better times available, one was 9am ish, but I went for 1.35pm, getting back to Flam 3.40pm. The cruise itinerary says arrive early morning, leave early evening, so I'm hopeful of it being ok time wise.
Fingers crossed xx

It cost 590nok which says its 51.92 but we'll see when it clears my account. Its the only thing I'm booking in advance, everything else will be nice and cheap hopefully, as I've only allowed myself 200 port money, of which over a quarter has just gone

We visit Stavanger in June and even though weve been before we had planned to just wander around but then I noticed that this place is a short bus ride away.

Its called Sverd i Fjell, the site of an ancient battle. Its on the no 16 bus route (Nkr 37 each way) and takes about 15 minutes to get there. Outbound buses depart 12 and 42 mins past the hour and return at 08 and 38 mins past the hour. Were going to give it a go.

The port of Flam has your ship arriving at 08.45 and departing 17.30.
