Highlights
    What to Expect
    Begin your comprehensive self-guided tour of Norway from the Oslo Train Station. When booking, provide your hotel details, and your package of transportation tickets will be dropped off at your hotel. Departure times vary depending on the time of year. 

    Climb aboard the Bergen Railway and travel west to Myrdal, where you'll disembark and change to the  Flåm Railway. Keep your camera handy for sweeping views of Norway's wilderness and the fjords. 

    Transfer to a boat for a fjord cruise on the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. Both offer terrific views, and the Nærøyfjord is one of Europe's narrowest, included on the UNESCO World Heritage list. 

    Step off your cruise in Gudvangen, where you'll climb aboard a bus for a trip through Nærøydalen's mountain scenery and quaint villages. Seasonally (summer), the bus will take on the steep and winding Stalheimskleiva to Voss, where you'll take the Bergen Railway back to Bergen. 

    This tour is entirely self-guided, and you can move at your own pace.

    By road, by trains and one is in Bergen, a beautiful place. One can have whale, cod or shark to eat. Kiev of Bergen from top of the hill is mesmerizing.

    I only had the weekend to see the Fjords that I had missed on my last trip and this seemed like it fit the bill. The fjord tour is something that you should not miss if you visit Norway. The scenery on the Fram railway...More

    Hi there, I can't seem to find the correct page to ask this question, hope this one will do. Firstly, we are doing Bergen to Oslo. We have 2 days after getting off our cruise ship in Bergen. We have a night booked at Vatnahalsen. The second day is simple, catch the morning train from Myrdal to Oslo, arriving mid afternoon so we can explore the city a bit before flying out next morning. It is the day from Bergen to Myrdal that I would love some opinions on. We are NOT booking through Norway in a Nutshell, the rush in peak tourist time is not our cup of tea. I have 3 options for our day and would love to know what people would think would give us the most scenic and relaxing day. Option 1: Early first bus from Bergen to Flam. Fjord safari RIB boat after lunch. Last Flam train up the mountain to Myrdal, and onto Vatnahalsen. Option 2: Early first train from Bergen to Myrdal, first train down to Flam. Same as option 1 following. Option 3: Early first boat from Bergen to Flam arriving after lunch. Do we need to do a fjord safari boat after this? I doubt it! Plenty of time in Flam, last train up the mountain, same as before. Thanks SO MUCH everyone. We do not want to rush. We will have our large luggage. We know it will be crowded. We just want the best experience for our last 2 days in Norway. Cheers!

    Is it easy for Americans to drive from Oslo to Bergen or do you recommend train travel?
