Day 02: Oslo City Tour - Bygdoy Island - Vigeland Park - Gol - Geilo

Enjoy your first Scandinavian buffet breakfast early this morning before meeting up with a local guide at the hotel. Today you’ll board a private coach and enjoy a panoramic Oslo city tour, discovering the unique beauty of the Norwegian Viking capital. Situated on the beautiful Oslofjord, you’ll take in a refreshing view of Oslo at the Opera House before travelling to Bygdoy Island—home of the famous Scandinavian cultural exhibition, Vigeland Park.

Pass by the Royal Palace and Karl Johan, the main boulevard of Oslo, before the tour ends downtown. You’ll be able to further explore this vibrant city on your own for a period of time before we leave for the fjord region in the afternoon.

We leave Oslo in the afternoon and travel past Hønefoss and Nesbyen, enveloped in beautiful Norwegian countryside, to the striking Hallingdal Valley. Continue on to Gol and Geilo—a town famous for its ski resorts and ringed in beautiful mountains—and arrive at a hotel tucked away on the mountainside.

Dinner is at your hotel tonight.

Hotel Bardøla (155 miles)

Day 03: Geilo - Bergen City Tour - Bryggen Harbor - Voss

After we make a short visit and lunch stop at the famous Bergen fish market (lunch not included), we’ll embark on a 1.5-hour Bergen city tour, walking through the UNESCO World Heritage Site-listed Bryggen Harbor. We leave Bergen in the afternoon, tracing our way through mountains and idyllic countryside to our hotel at the foot of a mountain.

Arrive at the hotel in the evening and check in before you enjoy dinner.

Day 04: Voss - Flåm - Fjord Cruise (Optional) - Borgund Stave Church - Oslo

Breakfast is served buffet-style at the hotel early this morning. We’ll depart from the hotel and travel by private coach through charming Gudvangen to Flåm, site of the famous Flåm Railway. We’ll stop here and spend the next three hours in this historic fjordside town located next to the Sognefjord, the longest and deepest open fjord in the world. Here you’ll have the option of embarking on an optional Sognefjord ferry on the branches of the Aurlandsfjord and the UNESCO-listed Nærøyfjord: discover the mysterious beauty of the landscape and waters between Flåm and Gudvangen for two hours. Passengers who prefer to explore Flåm have approximately three hours of free time.

In the afternoon, we’ll depart Flåm through the 15-mile-long Lærdal tunnel and make a quick stop to admire the exterior of the Borgund Stave Church (est. 1100). Continue through Hemsdalen, Gol, and Hønefoss to reach Oslo in the evening.
