About this holiday

Norway’s capital

Our adventure starts in the Norwegian capital, Oslo. Dating back to 1049, this stunning historic city is located at the northernmost end of the Oslofjord and is surrounded by green hills and mountains. Just the right size for exploring on foot, we have a day here where we include a guided walking tour to discover some of the main sights before having time to discover more at our own pace. Take your pick from many museums, and parks or grab a coffee in one of the top cafés.

Flåm and its railway

Moving on from Oslo, we head out into some of Norway’s spectacular scenery on the world famous Flåm railway. This wonderful journey takes in rivers, cutting through deep ravines, steep cliffs with majestic waterfalls and snowcapped mountains peppered with farms clinging to the slopes. This railway is one of the steepest in the world with a gradient of 55% on 80% of its route. Admire the beautiful Aurlandsfjord, a tributary of the world’s longest fjord, Sognefjord, as we arrive into Flåm in the afternoon.

Bergen

From Flåm we head out on the railway again to Myrdal, 865 meters above sea level. Here the line meets up with the Bergen Line for our connection on to one of Norway’s most recognisable cities, Bergen. Known as the ‘gateway to the fjords’ the city has a historic harbour and unique colourful architecture. Surrounded by seven mountains and fi sh-boned by seven fjords, we include a sightseeing tour of the characterful city. There is time to explore so why not take the funicular up to Mount Fløyen for some spectacular views.

Geilo before home...

From Bergen we head off once again by train to the mountain village of Geilo, known for its skiing in the winter and various outdoor pursuits during the summer. Our final day it’s back to Oslo for a bit of last minute sightseeing or a spot of shopping.
