What’s included

Itinerary

Day 1 - London and Oslo

We depart London Heathrow aboard our flight to Oslo. Situated beside a fjord and surrounded by forest-covered mountains, this beautiful city is known as the green capital thanks to its lush parks and stunning scenery. Oslo is also a cultural hub with many museums, galleries and theatres - and our hotel is close to the Oslo Opera House.

Day 2 - The Bergen Railway

Travelling along the full length of Northern Europe's highest railway line, the Bergen Railway, we admire the natural landscapes of forests, fjords and snowy mountainsides as we journey towards Bergen, a harbour-based city surrounded by seven scenic mountains. Other highlights on our journey include the Trollkona tunnel, the longest on the line at 5.5 miles, the pretty Hallingdal Valley and the Hallingdalselva River, which flows to Lake Krøderen, and Norefjell mountain.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 3 - Bergen

We set out on a guided city tour, visiting the delightful Bryggen waterfront, the city's old Hanseatic trading wharf and a UNESCO World Heritage site. This historic quarter, with its charming timber houses, is the oldest part of Bergen, with some buildings dating back to the 15th century. Afterwards, we make our way to the city's time-honoured fish market. The rest of your day is free to visit one of the city's many galleries and museums. Bergen's Art Gallery exhibits a vast collection of works by local Norwegian artists, including many pieces by Edvard Munch, best known for his famous expressionist painting 'The Scream'. Meanwhile, the city's Science Muse-um provides a fascinating insight into industry and research in the area.

Includes
  • Breakfast
Day 4 – The Flåm Railway

We cross Norway's incredible fjordland region today, travelling through some of the country's most breathtaking landscapes by boat. Our cruise takes us to the shores of Aurlandsfjord, where the village of Flåm is nestled. Here, we join the Flåm Railway, taking us 12 miles to the mountain station of Myrdal, via a multitude of twists and turns. Trundling past crystal-clear waterfalls and through leafy canyons, we witness some of the finest Norwegian landscapes on offer. Running along several mountains, the Flåm Railway is an impressive feat of engineering and one of the steepest railway lines in the world, adding to the lofty views we enjoy. We cross the mighty Kjossfossen Waterfall, which plummets over 700 feet, before changing trains for the service to Voss, a beautiful town nestled between Hardangerfjord and Sognefjord.

Please Note - For departure 21/06/2024 in Voss you will stay at the Park Hotel Vossevangen.

Includes
  • Breakfast, Dinner
Day 5 – Voss

We make the short walk to the boarding point for the Voss Gondola, a cable car which takes us on a scenic ascent into the mountains to the summit station at Hangurstoppen. During the journey, we look out over the snow-capped peaks, evergreen forests and sparking waters of the fjords spread out before us. At the top, you can visit the restaurant, head out on one of the signposted walking trails or just sit and admire the views. The rest of your day is free in one of the Norway's most popular destinations for getting back to nature. Encircled by high mountains, wooded valleys, cascading waterfalls and meandering rivers, you could relax in these picturesque surroundings or take a bus to one of the nearby towns for some shopping, or a drink and snack at a local café.

Very well organised trip - rep was one step ahead of any problems - one morning we woke to pouring rain and we were walking to the port to go on a cruise to Flam. By the time we finished breakfast our rep Charles had organised and paid for taxis to make sure we arrived dry and ready to enjoy the next stage of our tour - excellent service

The Norway's Fjords and landscapes are a marvel to see, the big cities are a wonderful experience, although this tour does not allow enough time for a full exploration of the capital (in my opinion). The train rides that we were able to take were breath taking at times looking out at the scenery and mountain topped with a little ice and edges of glaciers. The schedule at times was a little full on and not scheduled for enough time at each location again in our opinion. Overall a wonderful holiday with a lot of new friends.

Wonderful tour with excellent tour guide. The only downside was the rail journey on first day from Oslo to Bergen which was replaced by a coach journey. However this did enable a journey through different scenery.

Great trip. Norway is beautiful, clean, welcoming and expensive! Our tour manager, Phil, was excellent and he handled an office admin error with ticketing very well indeed. The last day in Oslo felt a little rushed but, overall, a relaxing week away.

The whole of this experience was a joy except maybe the flight which was our choice of route. Once there the scenery the travel the food and the travel manager could not be faulted. The mix of trains boats and cable cars even most of the walking kept us interested. We even found a place to swim in a fjord. Can’t wait to go on another trip.

Excellent and knowledgeable Tour Manager, well organised with good variety of activities in cities (Oslo and Bergen), town (Voss), mountains and fjords. Went in July and the weather was perfect. Made me want to return to see more of Norway.
