Best of Norway
from $4465
Duration: 9 Days
Encounter the 'King' and 'Queen' of the Fjords, Olympic triumphs and the trading heritage of the Hanseatics as you answer the call of Norway's wilderness and embrace Scandinavian sophistication.
Day 1
Arrive Oslo
Prepare for a spellbinding encounter with nature - an untamed landscape of fjords, lakes and dense forests that begins in the understated capital of Oslo, set within beautiful natural surrounds. On arrival, you are transferred to your hotel. Spend the day exploring the city's interesting architecture and exquisite open spaces, before joining your Travel Director and fellow travellers for a Welcome Reception to kick-start your journey.
Day 2
Oslo – Geilo – Hardangerfjord
We journey along the shores of the Tyrifjord to the ski resort of Geilo with its scenic location at the foot of Hallingskarvet, before continuing across the Hardanger Plateau to Voringfoss, a cascade of water that plunges impressively into the Måbødalen Canyon below. We continue to Hardangerfjord - its title as the 'Queen of the Fjords' is well deserved and you'll have an opportunity to admire its deep blue waters as you travel along part of its shoreline to your hotel in Øystese where you will dine tonight.
Day 3
Hardangerfjord – Bergen Orientation and Free Time
A scenic drive along lakes and fjords will bring us to the 'Capital of Fjords', Bergen. We'll learn about the city's Hanseatic heritage, enjoying an orientation tour past the 13th-century Haakon's Hall and bustling fish market. Enjoy some free time to explore this colourful city. This evening, 'Connect With Locals' as the Øvre-Eide family welcome us on their farm for a 'Be My Guest' dinner.
Day 4
Bergen – Voss – Sognefjord
Delving straight back into Norway's inspiring natural landscapes, we continue to the 'King of Fjords', travelling via Voss, the country's adventure capital. There's some free time to embark on an Optional Experience on the Flåm Railway, one of the most beautiful train journeys in the world.
Day 5
Sognefjord – Valldal (2 nights)
Journey from Sognefjord, Norway's longest and deepest fjord, to Valldal. See the impressive Bøyabreen glacier, part of Jostedalsbreen, Europe's largest glacier. Your road trip is filled with pinch-me moments as you skirt past three different fjords.
Day 6
Geiranger Excursion
The Geirangerfjord takes centre stage today, as we embark on an epic adventure to explore its depths. We begin our adventure by embarking on a scenic cruise past its tumbling waterfalls and snow-capped peaks. We then make the short drive to Flydalsjuvet viewpoint for a breathtaking panoramic view of the fjord below. We return to Valldal where you can enjoy the afternoon at leisure. Perhaps, join an Optional Experience to drive Norway's most famous road, the Trollstigen, with its eleven hairpin bends.
Day 7
Valldal – Lom – Lillehammer
We enjoy a scenic drive to Lom, the gateway to the Jotunheimen Mountains. Here, we will 'Dive Into Culture' and visit a 12th-century Stave church, adorned with Runic inscriptions, paintings and carved dragon figures that are said to protect it against evil. We continue through the Gudbrandsdal Valley before arriving in Lillehammer, the proud host of the 1994 Winter Olympics.
Day 8
Lillehammer – Oslo
We return to Oslo where we spend the day exploring several of the city's highlights with a 'Local Specialist', including views of the medieval fortress of Akershus, overlooking Oslo's beautiful harbour, the Opera and the 19th-century Royal Palace. We finish our tour with a visit to the fascinating Vigeland Sculpture Park, proudly displaying the life's work of Gustav Vigeland. After a magnificent encounter with Norway's epic natural landscapes, we enjoy our last evening together at a Farewell Dinner, toasting to a memorable trip.
