Itinerary

Arrive in Oslo according to your own itinerary. The Norwegian capital is beautifully situated at the head of the Oslo Fjord and surrounded by forested ridges. Oslo offers many well-known sights such as the Vigeland Sculpture Park, the Viking Ship Museum and the Opera House.

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will experience Norway’s most popular round trip; Norway in a Nutshell. The excursion takes you through some of the most beautiful scenery in Norway’s fjord region; you will travel by train across the Hardangervidda Mountain Plateau and the Flåm Railway will take you through wild and beautiful mountain scenery and down to the Sognefjord. There is no other adhesion railway in the world running on normal tracks that are so steep over such a long distance. From Flåm you continue by boat on the Nærøyfjord, Europe’s narrowest fjord, to Gudvangen. From here you go by coach via the steep and spectacular hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva*, before arriving in Voss, where you will board a train for the last stretch of today’s journey to Bergen, the Gateway to the Fjords. Evening arrival.

*The drive via Stalheimskleiva depends on the dates and the road conditions.

Breakfast at the hotel. Day at your own leisure in Bergen. Bergen is Norway’s second largest city and the world’s only city surrounded by 7 mountains and 7 fjords. Sights of interest are the Hanseatic Bryggen Wharf, Fløibanen Funicular, Troldhaugen, the Fish and Flower market, Bergen Aquarium and Gamle Bergen (Old Bergen Open Air Museum).

Breakfast at the hotel. A ferry from Bergen will take you to Stavanger, Norway’s fourth largest city that has a fine collection of gabled houses, cobblestone streets, winding alleys and busy markets. One of Stavanger’s highlights is the Old Town (Gamle Stavanger) with well-preserved early 18th-century whitewashed wooden houses.

Breakfast at the hotel. Day at leisure; we suggest a 3-hour mini-cruise to the Lysefjord*, with views of the Pulpit Rock 600 metres above the fjord (Preikestolen).

Breakfast at the hotel. From Stavanger you travel by train along the Southern Line to Kristiansand, southern Norway’s largest city. With its weathered old homes and pulsating summer atmosphere this is a very charming city.

Breakfast at the hotel. Today you will complete your journey by taking the Southern Line train back to Norway’s capital city – Oslo.

Breakfast at the hotel. Departure from Oslo according to your own itinerary.
