SMALL GROUP TOUR: Experience two of Norway’s renowned fjords and a close encounter with the breathtaking Nigardsbreen Glacier tongue on this spectacular 20-person max small group exploration!


Day 01: Arrive Bergen

Arrive in Bergen today and transfer to your hotel on your own for check in. The remainder of the day is free to explore Bergen’s lively atmosphere before you meet up with your tour leader at the evening welcome meeting. We recommend taking a journey on the Fløibanen funicular railway to the top of Mt. Fløien for spectacular panoramic views of the city far below (not included).

Overnight accommodations are at a three-star hotel located in the heart of Bergen near ancient Bryggen Harbor.

Scandic Neptun

Day 02: Bergen – Hardangerfjord – Norheimsund

Following your first Scandinavian buffet breakfast, embark on a 2-hour morning sightseeing tour of Bergen. Explore the popular fish market as well as the historical Bryggen Harbor, where the Hanseatic League—prominent from the 14th-16th centuries—held court.

After the tour, leave Bergen behind and enter the magnificent serenity of Norway’s fjord country: we’ll travel to the orchard-filled Hardangerfjord region, and then head to Norheimsund.

Accommodation and dinner tonight are at a 3-star historic hotel with a beautiful view of the Hardangerfjord.

Thon Hotel Sandven

Day 03: Norheimsund – Stalheim – Flåm – Gudvangen – Vangsnes – Balestrand

After breakfast this morning, we’ll drive to Stalheim by way of Voss. Stalheim overlooks a famously panoramic canyon, the Nærøydalen, often called Stalheim Canyon. We continue to the idyllic village of Flåm, a scenic fjordside town popular with tourists for its location at the end of the Aurlandsfjord and close proximity to the Nærøyfjord. Board a ferry in Flåm and embark on a cruise along the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord to Gudvangen, located at the far end of the Nærøyfjord.

Continue by coach to Vangsnes, crossing the Sognefjord, and arrive in Balestrand. Accommodations and dinner tonight are at a famous 4-star hotel on the banks of the fjord.

Kviknes Hotel

Day 04: Balestrand – Nigardsbreen Glacier – Balestrand

Buffet breakfast this morning is followed by a ferry across the Fjærlandsfjord, where we’ll reach the Jostedal glacier region and the Breheimsenteret Glacier Center. We’ll enjoy entrance into the museum as well as lunch. The center has a spectacular bird’s-eye view of the Nigardsbreen Glacier tongue on clear days, and from here we’ll make our way by coach to the lake at the base of the glacier.

Sail across the lake with your group and walk across the winding path leading to the glacier, small and massive stones alike worn smooth beneath your feet by the slow crawl of the Nigardsbreen Glacier over thousands of years.

Return to your hotel in Balestrand with the group for overnight accommodations and dinner.

Kviknes Hotel

Day 05: Balestrand – Flåm – Flåm Railway – Myrdal – Oslo

Enjoy buffet breakfast this morning at the hotel before checking out with your group and heading to the pier. Today we’ll re-cross the Sognefjord on our way back to Flåm via express boat, where a spectacular journey aboard the Flåm Railway—one of the most famous and beautiful in the entire world—awaits you. We’ll arrive at the mountain station of Myrdal and change over to the Bergen Line train bound for Oslo.

Arrive in Oslo in the late evening and transfer to your hotel for check in.

Scandic St. Olavs Plass Hotel

Day 06: Oslo

Following breakfast today at the hotel, the group will get the chance to experience a 3-hour Oslo city tour. Discover the famous cultural exhibit of Vigeland Park, the Holmenkollen ski jump, and a walk to the Oslo Opera House (does not include entrances).

Your final afternoon and evening in Norway is at leisure to explore the Viking capital on your own. There are numerous optional activities to engage in during your spare time, such as a local ferry to the Bygdøy Peninsula or the many popular museums that reside in Oslo.

Overnight at your hotel in Oslo.

Scandic St. Olavs Plass Hotel

Day 07: Depart Oslo

Today you’ll transfer to the airport on your own and depart Oslo.
