/ Birmingham to Norway
you might want to check march isn't to late in the season?!
We recently flew with Norwgian airlines, this was the cheapest at the time and was about £100 each then we pre booked a hire car and drove oslo to rujkan. You will have to drive or get a bus. We then stayed at http://www.rjukanhytte.com
Flying with Norwegian air we had 20kg baggage and 10kg hold allowance but for an extra few quid I would consider paying for extra baggage to take food from home and split the cost between you, included teabags and a flask of tea etc. Food is mega expensive even in the supermarket. I took a massive bag of porridge for 4 of us for breakfast as it was the best idea I think I had! We also ate together rather than individually which kept the cost down.
The accom was pretty good but showers and water where available from a seperate building. Showers required tokens and for how much it cost us to 10nok per person to shower each day.
hope some of this helps
A loaf of good bread and a lump of cheese here in Norway costs pretty much the same as it does in a supermarket in the UK.....as does a teabag!!!
We will be flying with Ryanair to Torp.
You definitely need a car. We may be staying at the Climb-inn which does allow people to camp in the garden and then warm up inside.Rather you than me!

That's not what we found at all last summer in Lofoten.
A loaf of bread (admittedly very nice bread) was £3-4 and a wedge of brie was a similar price. And that was the cheapest lunch option I could find...
Its got a reputation for being expensive but I'm a right tight arse and I'll be staying there again!
