Client has 7 days for NIN plus 2 days for travel

I have a client wanting to do NIN in August! Two places of interest are not on the NIN. Looking for the most affordable way to figure this trip that he is not spending all his time rushing around!
He wants time to go to Hole to trace some ancestors. Then to Lillehammer.
I am thinking
Day 1: Travel US to Oslo
Day 2: Tour Oslo Viking Museum etc and drive to Hole
Day 3: Train to Lillehammer and spend the night
Day 4: Return to Oslo by train and take in dinner
Day 5: Train to Myrdal/Flam and spend the night in Flam
Day 6: Flam/Gudvagen/Voss/Bergen and spend the night in Bergen
Day 7: Tour Bergen and Hardangerfjord
Day 8: Bergen to Oslo by train
Day 9: Oslo to US

My question: Is the most affordable way to do this to purchase a EurRail? Also affordable places to stay. He's a no frills guy!

    Hi Marilyn,

    For travel from Hole to Lillehammer, your client's best option would be to go back to Oslo. He would then do a round-trip between Oslo and Lillehammer.

    For the requested itinerary, I would recommend purchasing the Eurail Norway Pass in addition to the 'Eurail Passholder Myrdal-Flåm-Gudvangen-Voss' option of another pass called the 'Norway in a Nutshell'.

    The Eurail Norway Pass covers your clients for their round-trip between Oslo and Lillehammer, their train from Oslo to Myrdal (Bergen Railway), and their train from Bergen back to Oslo (Bergen Railway).

    The 'Eurail Passholder Myrdal-Flåm-Gudvangen-Voss' option of the 'Norway in a Nutshell' covers their train from Myrdal to Flåm (Flåm Railway), the ferry from Flåm to Gudvangen, and the bus from Gudvangen to Voss. To purchase the 'Norway in a Nutshell', you would have to call us. We can be reached at 1-800-622-8600. Our current hours are 8:00 AM to 6:30 PM CT Monday to Friday.

    The trains on the Bergen Railway from Oslo to Myrdal and Bergen to Oslo will require reservations, as will trains on the Flåm Railway from Myrdal to Flåm. The reservations would be arranged when you call us.

    When you call, you can also include the Eurail Norway Pass in your order.

    I would also recommend inquiring about our city passes and tours for Oslo, including the 'Private Oslo & Viking Ship Museum Walking Tour'.
