Magic of The Fjords
7 Days

ITINERARY

Overview:
“Experience the best of what Norway has to offer: fjords, waterfalls, coastal and city culture, the unique Viking History, a glacier, mountains, and idyllic islands are among what you will find.

This type of tour is unique, we classify it as semi-independent. You will travel the region using railway, panoramic train route and ferries. There are no coaches included except for the sightseeing in Oslo, we therefore recommend you travel light and find your inner adventurer.

The tour only includes guiding in Oslo and Bergen. The rest of the time is at leisure to explore the region at your own pace. There will be an escort following the route of the tour from Bergen to Oslo. So don’t worry about having vouchers for hotels or trains, these will be taken care of, so you
can sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride!”
