We are going on CMV Northern Lights cruise departing Tilbury on 10/10/17. We will be stopping at Rotterdam, Olden, Kristiansund, Alta,Honningsvag, Tromso, Trondheim, Andalsnes and Bergen. I usually prefer not to use the ships excursions but apart from Alta I am really struggling to find alternative tour providers. The ones I have found do not seem to offer tours in the Winter.
For Rotterdam and Bergen we are planning not to do any tour, just walking and exploring on our own. But I really want to go to the troll road at Andalsnes and also the Atlantic road at Kristiansund, is the cruise excusrion our only option or is there an alternative (I'm not sure about hiring a car and driving in Norway).
Any advice will be much appreciated
