Tour Itinerary:

Day 1 - Oslo, Norway

Begin your journey to a land of mountains, glacial fjords, legends, and charming people, as you set off for Norway. Dive into the culture of the region, connecting with layers of Viking history, attention-grabbing nature, and a sense of refined traditions. Arrive in Oslo, Norway’s grand capital. An up-and-coming foodie destination, Oslo combines classic tastes with modern twists. Meet your fellow travellers for a hearty and delicious welcome dinner.

Day 2 - Oslo

Enjoy the morning at leisure to explore Oslo on your own and perhaps delight in some of the Norwegian Constitution Day festivities. This afternoon, join a local guide and begin your day at the mighty Viking Ship Museum, where three ancient Viking vessels are on grand display. Venture down Karl Johan Street, passing by iconic buildings such as the Royal Palace and city hall as you take in the charming heart of downtown Oslo. Make your way to Vigeland Park, home to a collection of statues and sculptures that the legendary artist Gustav Vigeland constructed during his life.

Day 3 - Oslo - Flåm

Heading north of Norway’s capital, enter the majestic and unique landscapes of the fjord region. Visit the Borgund Stave Church, an awe-inspiring building dedicated in honour of the Apostle Andrew in 1180. Continue to the quaint village of Flåm, your gateway to the grandeur of Aurlandsfjord. Traverse the terrain on the renowned Flåm Railway, one of the steepest train rides in the world, and climb 3,000 feet past rushing waterfalls, looming mountains, and picturesque valleys. Admire the scenery along the mountain plateau of Myrdal before descending into the fjord of Flåm.

Day 4 - Flåm - Loen

Immerse yourself in the striking nature of the Sognefjord before traversing the Briksdal Glacier. Surrounded by thundering waterfalls and towering mountains, the glacier is considered to be one of the most awe-inspiring in all of Norway. Climb the glacier in a traditional “troll” car (the park’s open-air vehicles), and arrive for a relaxing stay in Loen, a welcoming village situated in the heart of Norway’s fjord region.

Day 5 - Loen - Geiranger - Fjord Cruise - Loen

Find yourself immersed in the enchanting landscapes of Norway’s fjord region. Soak up the mesmerizing landscape on an exhilarating Geirangerfjord cruise in Geiranger (UNESCO). Discover Norway’s mightiest waterfalls – the Seven Sisters, the Bridal Veil, and the Suitor. Marvel at the homesteads built along the steep sides of the mountains, where farmland has endured for centuries.

Day 6 - Loen - Bergen

Norway’s impressive landscapes continue to weave their spell on you as you travel to Bergen, the portal from the fjords. The Bergen of today – charming, old-world, and scenic – is much different from when it was founded by the legendary Viking warriors of the past. Enjoy a free evening to uncover the mysteries of this former Viking seaport, nestled against the imposing mountain range.

Day 7 - Bergen

Stroll along the historic and iconic Bryggen harbour front (UNESCO) on a guided walking tour of Bergen. Enjoy an afternoon at leisure before reuniting with your fellow travellers at an atmospheric farewell dinner in the historic Bryggen neighbourhood, home to pleasant little houses stacked side-by-side against the harbour.

Day 8 - Bergen - Tour Ends

Say “ha det” to Norway and depart for home with incredible memories of your adventures.
