A day-by-day plan to guide your Nordic adventure.

  • Day 1: Arrival in Bergen

    After arriving at Bergen Flesland Airport, make your way to the charming Bergen city centre, where your accommodation is located. If you arrive early, we recommend spending the afternoon strolling through the city and discovering the sights. You won’t want to miss the old wharf, Bryggen. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with centuries-old houses, a vibrant fish and flower market and an interesting range of museums. For spectacular views of Bergen, we recommend taking the Floibanen funicular up the mountainside. Tonight you will meet your tour guide and group for a welcome drink at your accommodation. You will have the evening at your leisure.

    Spend the night at Zander K Hotel or similar.

    This morning your guide picks you up to start your adventure! Travel north to Norway’s adventure capital, Voss, where you’ll see the beautiful Tvindefossen waterfall. You’ll then reach the impressive Aurlandsfjord, from where you will embark on the famous Flåm Railway, or Flåmsbana. It is a steep train ride (one of the steepest in the world!) that climbs up from Flåm to Myrdal in the mountains and comes back down again.

    After the scenic ride, you will make a stop at Stegastein, to enjoy a panoramic view of the fjord below. Your journey continues to Sogndal by the Sognefjord – Norway’s longest and deepest fjord. At your accommodation for the night, dinner will be served to the group.

    In the afternoon you will board the thrilling Loen Skylift. This cable car will take you to the altitude of 1,011 metres (3,300 feet) with amazing views of the fjord below. When you reach tonight’s accommodation, you will enjoy dinner with the group.

Make sure to enjoy the spectacular views during the ferry ride, as the captain navigates the deep fjord.

    With its fairytale landscape, Geiranger has a lot to offer nature lovers. Don’t miss the snow-covered mountaintops, delicate waterfalls like the Seven Sisters and Bridal Veil, lush green vegetation and the deep blue waters.

From Eidsdal you’ll then take a short ferry to Linge. If you enjoy twists and turns, you will be very impressed by the next drive up Trollstigen, “the Troll Ladder”, which is one of the most visited spots in Norway.

    After passing towering mountains, you will reach Ålesund, nestled on the coast at the mouth of the fjords. It is a captivating city that was almost completely destroyed and rebuilt after a great fire in 1904. That means it looks very different from other Norwegian towns with its Art Nouveau architecture. The turrets, spires and beautiful ornamentation give the town its distinctive character, like something out of a fairytale.

    Here you can take the opportunity to visit the Atlantic Sea-Park or enjoy the stunning panorama from Fjellstuen viewpoint.

This charming town has historical significance as it was the centre of trading in the 16th and 17th centuries between Bergen and Trondheim.

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

A way to get a flavour of all of Norway

This trip has everything needed to get a flavour of all of Norway, from the bustling streets of Oslo & Bergen, the high seas on fjord voyages, to the quiet calm of Flåm. The tour allows for plenty of time to explore on your own or do optional activities, which I did & could have easily added a lot more at every stop. Either way, pack your walking shoes & roam the streets or hills on your own to take in the sculptures, architecture or views that are in abundance everywhere in Norway.

Wonderful experience

Entire experience was wonderful. Appreciated Jemima's suggestions and help while booking. Erla did a wonderful job working with our tour. Would recommend the Highlights of Norway. Will use Nordic Visitor again!

Well-organised tour

I think it was well done, well-organised and great overall.

Fun and memorable tour

Our 10 days in Norway were so much fun and memorable. We used various forms of transportation. The pace was doable, and adequate free time was provided. Our guide was personable, knowledgeable and helpful. We love our time together.

Excellent and memorable experience

Services provided by Nordic Visitor were excellent. Accommodation was lovely. Breakfast buffets were very good and had much to choose from. Provided meals were good with a chance to try local flavor. Transportation was seamless and very clean and comfortable. We covered a lot of distance and saw much beauty. Overall experience was excellent and memorable. This small group tour is full of nature, with some city visits and free time incorporated. I enjoyed the walking tours provided by Nordic Visitor. Although a busy trip, there was time in-between to relax on the boat and trains. Our tour leader, Erla, was excellent - informative, attentive, available and pleasant. I enjoyed travelling with the small group and met some very nice people. I would recommend Nordic Visitor and hope to travel with them again.

The tour gives you a fabulous overview of Norway!

The tour gives you a fabulous overview of Norway. We did a lot of travel in between sights but this enabled us to have a real breadth of experience, from fjords to mountain passes, railway adventures and small boats. Our tour guide was excellent and the sights and experiences outlined for us were top-notch. The materials provided about our tour were excellent and well thought out.

During the booking steps, you can choose a single or double room. Triple rooms are not available for this tour. If your group contains 3 or more people, please contact us for booking assistance.

Each guest can bring one suitcase or large bag that can be stored in the back of the minibus and one smaller item (like a small backpack) to keep inside the van for daily essentials like camera, wallet, medications, etc.

Unfortunately carry-on suitcases (cabin bags with wheels) are too large to store in the van’s overhead racks. We request that you make arrangements to store your extra luggage in Bergen during the guided portion of the tour.

Please note that drinks are not included with your dinners. Other meals will be at your leisure.

Summertime is the most stable time of year in Norway. That said, you should still be ready to experience all seasons in one day. Especially if you will be spending a lot of time outdoors, you’ll want to pack for a combination of weather conditions.
