Great excursion for those with limited time in Norway. Our great guide Artur picked us up in Oslo and drove us to Geilo to take the Geilo-Myrdal train. The panorama was splendid and the fjords were covered in snow and ice! Then we took the Flam railway: superb views. In Flam, we took a cruise on the SogneFjorden aboard an electric boat: fabulous. On the way back, our great guide stopped us at amazing places for photos and then took us back to the hotel. A day where we took full eyes! Thanks again to our guide Arturs for his good humor and professionalism.
