Self-Guided Norway Tour: Oslo to Bergen

1. Self-Guided Norway Tour: Oslo to Bergen

This legendary tour takes you through Norway’s most breathtaking UNESCO-protected fjord and mountain scenery, including Europe’s top scenic rail journeys. You will also enjoy a fjord cruise on the magnificent Aurlandsfjord and on the narrow Nærøyfjord. This is a self-guided tour, from Oslo, to Myrdal, to Flåm, to Gudvangen, to Voss, and then to Bergen. High up in Norway's mountainous “rooftop” at 866 metres (2,841 ft) above sea level is Myrdal, a remote mountain station serving as the junction between the Oslo-Bergen train line and the famous Flåm Railway. The small village of Flåm is one of the most popular destinations in Norway and Scandinavia due to its stunning scenery and location. Most have probably seen spectacular images of the landscape in Western Norway - steep, forested mountainsides that plunge into the blue fjord, waterfalls, narrow fjords and valleys. Gudvangen is a village in Aurland Municipality in Vestland county, Norway. It is a popular tourist destination and is located at the end of the Nærøyfjord where the Nærøydalselvi river empties into the fjord.

What people are saying about Oslo

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.

With very nice weather, we were able to enjoy the day. The organization was very good. There were no further delays. The boat trip with electric drive in the picturesque fjord was very nice. Value for money. I can only recommend this tour. Robert from Luxembourg

Martin, a great guide for a city like Bergen. Wrap up warm, even in the middle of July, the weather in this part of the world is harsh.

Fantastic excursion, an intertwining of services all well connected, certainly to be recommended, breathtaking landscapes.

It was once in a lifetime experience. I would recommend to everyone who are visiting Norway.
