Details about this private guided Holiday tour:

Oslo – Ålesund – Bergen – Oslo

Oslo, the start- and endpoint of this spectacular multi-day roundtrip, is Norway’s capital and largest city. A modern city with medieval roots, Oslo offers all the comforts and venues of a vibrant, urban capital. Yet echoes from Oslo’s rich past are everywhere, ready to be explored. Situated only 20 minutes from Norway’s main international airport and home to many renowned hotels, Oslo is a popular destination for international travellers. It is also an ideal starting point for our 10-day journey which will let you experience the essence of Norway.

After exploring Oslo, we venture inland and visit the picturesque Olympic town of Lillehammer, before travelling through the fertile Gudbrands valley to the Art Nouveau city of Ålesund. We follow the coastline to beautiful Bergen, home to the UNESCO- listed quarter of Bryggen. On our way back to Oslo, we cross the high mountain plateaus next to Hallingskarvet National Park. Bask in the sight of beautiful fjords, idyllic villages and pristine nature along the route.

You will find yourself surrounded by some of Norway’s highest and most impressive peaks.

From there, we follow the beautiful Storfjord to Ålesund.

Then, we cross the winding mountain roads to visit the Kjenndal glacier, a branch of mainland Europe’s largest glacier, the Jostedalsbreen. After that, we head towards the region of Jølster.

Day 8The stunning Flåm Railway

We depart Bergen by train on the world-famous Flåmsbanen railroad. This scenic route, recently named the world’s most incredible train journey by Lonely Planet, is truly an experience you’ll remember for life. Our driver will welcome us again in the village of Flåm, ready to drive us over the high mountain plateaus bordering Hallingskarvet. This area, home to reindeer and eagles, was turned into a national park in 2006 to protect its pristine and untouched nature.

*Overnight stay in the Hallingdalen area.

Day 9The Borgund Stave Church, rugged mountains and wild forests

We start the day with a visit to the medieval stave church and museum of Borgund. Famous for its traditional carvings and “Viking style” architecture, this church has become a renowned symbol of Norwegian heritage. From Borgund, we travel across wild mountain plateaus and through lush forests, until we reach the buzzing urban area of Oslo, where we started our journey.

*Overnight stay in the city centre of Oslo.

Day 10Oslo - Farewell and safe journey home

After spending the night in a comfortable hotel in Oslo, the tour has now come to an end and time has come to say goodbye. You are free to go for some last-minute shopping or explore Oslo on your own, depending on the departure time of your flight.
