Product Description

Review

Wanderlust Magazine: You've got to applaud Marco Polo's chutzpah to launch 30 new city/island guidebooks into an already pretty crowded market. Aiming to occupy the middle ground between the context-heavy luggage fillers and the context-free thinner volumes, the main USPs of these user-friendly guides are the plentiful 'Insider tips' dotted around each edition, the maps they're packaged with, and the pocket cheering price (£6.99 each). Complete with near-magazine style features, they're certainly a less intimidating proposition than some of the big wedges on offer. --Wanderlust Magazine

Great guide! I'm planning a trip to Norway and this has made me even more excited about going! Really colourful guide, fantastic pictures and tons of information. Excellent map in the back too! The best thing is the price!! For under £6 the quality is unbelievable, this is my first Marco Polo guide purchase, but it certainly won't be my last!

I bought this, and the accompanying Oslo guide, for use during a recent holiday to Norway. This is the first time I have purchased a Marco Polo product, but will certainly do so again in the future. Easy to use format, with concise, well written and well presented information and the sublime removable pull-out maps - so much better that those supplied with other guides which are permanently attached to the guide itself. Furthermore, it fits comfortably in the pocket and is thus easy to take out and about with you. One minor criticism, the map of Oslo did not show place names in English (Railway Station, etc) making a working knowledge of Norwegian virtually essential. Then again, these are, when all is said and done, internationally produced guides, which would suggest that it would be necessary to show these names in German, French, etc, as well. All in all a very good guide and well worth the five stars I have awarded it/them.

I've booked a tour of Scandinavia, so was delighted to be offered this book (plus its bigger version, the 'Travel Handbook') for review.

Bearing in mind that this smaller book is roughly half the cost, and much smaller and lighter, it still seems to contain loads of information and colour photos. A few pages of introduction, a timeline for the history, and some basic facts in the 'In a Nutshell' section (trolls, politics, fishing...) plus (maybe for the younger traveller) a couple of pages of - very interesting - "What's Hot" (staying in a lighthouse, climbing a waterfall...) I was also quite taken with the "Insider Tips" - where can you listen to classical music with seagulls in background, or play golf while watching the midnight sun...

The guide itself takes you round the country region by region (mentioning low-budget option hotels/ things to do).
Afterwards come short sections on possible tours, sports and travel with kids. Plus festivals and relevant computer links, and some basic Norwegian. And it's excellent for maps! - a street map of Oslo, a road atlas and then a full pull-out map of Norway in back pocket (1 inch =36.3 miles).
If you just want a small, light basic travel book, I absolutely can't fault it.

Full of local info for each region/county but beware the maps! The E6 does not start in Tromso as shown but connects to the E8 from Tromso. Driving around Tromso looking for the E6 at 10pm to drive south to Bardufoss was frustrating to say the least. Had to purchase map from garage in the end to guide us to our destination.

This guidebook is OK but it's difficult to find places as they are listed on the basis of their attractions. We were moving up the coast of Norway and wanted a guidebook which went from place to place. This is not it!

This was a good inexpensive guide and i am sure it will prove useful on our forthcoming Fjords cruise. A good buy me thinks.
