Yes of course. You will clear immigration in Helsinki as there is no border control between Finland and Norway, both are in Schengen zone.

You should spend time in the fjord region, which is where most tourists go to in Norway. Exciting roads like the Troll road. There must be some organised tour you can join.

To get to Lofoten, it might be cheaper to fly or take train to Bodo and then take the ferry across. That puts you at the more interesting southern end. Lofoten north of Solvear is not as interesting.

I did a two weeks Norway before and I honestly think it is too much... pics from my two weeks trip in June.. mountains overload at the end

But the end I was like sick and tired of mountains. They all just look the same and Norway does not have spectacular buildings...

The drive from narvik to Lofoten was spectacular . Really I find Lofoten so much better than the rest of Norway. I think 4 nights min Lofoten plus 3 nights at the main fjord areas is good enough.

Answers to your questions can be found here:

https://www.visitnorway.com/ [Norway's official tourism website is the best I've seen anywhere. Informative and fun. I spent several days clicking through it when I was planning.]

http://catalogue.nlb.gov.sg/cgi-bin/...8598/1645602,2

Everyone is different in what they like and don't like. There's a poster above who said 2 weeks were too much, but I felt 2 weeks were insufficient. Neither of us is wrong. Best to do your own research so that you can come up with a plan that suits your tastes.

All I can say is that Norway's cities and towns are really average at best compared to most of other Europe. The beauty is in the journeys and the countryside.
