This was a joint 66th Derby Scout Group trip with the Guides/Rangers in the summer of 1967. Harwich to Kristiansand on a Fred Olsen ferry then train to Oslo, Geilo and Stavanger. Ferry to Bergen (amazing Smorgasbord breakfast) and train back to Kristiansand. Stunning countryside, especially through the glaciers. rWe stayed in Youth Hostels and apart from arriving in torrential rain on the Sunday and a cloudburst suspended on a ski-lift in Geilo, the weather was pretty good.
