Start your visit to Norway by spending a few days in the magnificent capital of Oslo. Many surprises await you such as Vigeland Sculpture Park, The National Gallery featuring Edward Munch’s paintings. The new Opera House in the shape of and iceberg, and the Viking Museum. Take a stroll to “Bryggen”, where you will find an array of restaurants and bars. This is where everyone gathers, it is vibrant and lively, the “heartbeat” of Oslo.
National Geographic has named the Norwegian Fjords as the world’s best travel destination. With limited time to spend we can arrange a 2 day tour from Oslo to Bergen, including the world famous train ride form Myrdal to Flam. This is one of the world’s steepest rail road, offering spectacular views of the mountains and water falls. From Flam you will continue to Balestrand by boat and overnight in an historic Fjord Hotel. You will be served a wonderful dinner, and after breakfast the next morning you will cruise the Sognefjord which is the deepest and longest fjord of the all, and arrive Bergen by sea, – just the way the Vikings did.
Surrounded by seven mountains and seven fjords Bergen is an old Hanseatic City and our gateway to the Fjord County. Make sure while you are there to try a traditional “fiskekake”, fish cake or a “Bergensk Fiskesuppe”, a delicious fish showder.
With more time to spend, we suggest a visit to the Hardanger Fjord and its National Park, catering to 2 of Norways largest glaciers. A journey to Alesund, famous for its Art Noveau buildings and from there visit the Geiranger Fjord.
Last but not least, the best way to take it all in is to sail with Hurtigruten along the coast line from Bergen to Kirkenes, an artic city close to the Russian border.
