Road trip from Oslo to Allesund, 1st time in Norway

Hello,

We're a group of 4 adults first time to Norway. We'll fly to Oslo at the end of September. Planing to get a car from Oslo, drive to Allesund and return the car in Bergen. We plan to drive for 5 days then take the train back to Oslo. Does it sound reasonable? I'm looking through the forum and still confused about how to make the best out of it within this short period of time. Very into nature and scenic drives, especially if any chance to observe the foliage (not a must). Would like to include the Trollstigen, Geirangerfjord, Atlantic road...Should we take the Norway in the nut shell from Bergen to Oslo?

Really appreciate to your advise.

Oslo - Alesund - Bergen in 5 days is nearly driving only. Do not do that. Less distance will be more experience. Also in Norway it is not the question what you do but how. Means Oslo - Bergen have many ways: from scenic to boring ones.

Tip: From your destinations mentioned. Fly on to Alesund and do a car round trip from / there. After that fly to Bergen or take Hurtigruten ship.

Be aware of surcharge for one-way car rental.

To my mind it would be much more enjoyable and far cheaper if you skip Bergen and drive back to Oslo, saving the one way charge and four rail fares. You can then visit all the other places you mention without an excessive amount of driving and include a final night somewhere in the Jotunheim mountains, or Lillehammer if your flight is in the morning..

You can skip Bergen and drive a loop Oslo (airport)-Ålesund-Oslo, cheaper and less transport. Perhaps drive roads E6 + E136 and roads 15 + 51.
