What to do in Norway with a two year old?
May 9, 2017 2:42 PM   Subscribe

9 years and 9 months ago, Mrs Unless and I got married and followed this up with a trip to Norway. We'd like to go back to celebrate 10 years, along with our 2 year old. Where should we go? What can we do?

Last time we travelled around a fair bit but we'll probably need to chose one base this time. We love beaches and walks but like things to do rather than sitting around.

I can't recommend the classic coastal voyage on Hurtigruten enough, and I think it'd be ideal for a trip with a toddler. You'd have one home base but still the chance to explore all the beautiful cities/towns and other stops, along with the educational programs and excursions. It's much much less 'sitting around' than you might imagine, if you want it to be, and very little like a typical cruise. Please feel free to memail me if you have any questions. And congratulations!

I loved this hike.. I'm not at all fit, but I made it up to the top comfortably.

Response by poster: thanks both... we did a bit of hurtigruten last time around and may wait until the little person doesn't run around as much but it is something we want to go back to one day

If you happen to be in the south of Norway, the Dyreparken (zoo, mini amusement park and water park) in Kristiansand is pretty great. I wouldn't go far out of my way to visit, but if you're in the area it's worth a day.

Our kids really like checking out the playgrounds in other countries, so we make sure to budget time for those. Pretty much every park and school in Norway has a giant basket swing, which we don't find where we live.
