Crossing fjords and mountains

The fjord scenery is so special it will be difficult to put your camera down - with breath taking images at every turn and wonderful memories to capture at every opportunity. From day one captivating Bergen grabs your attention and keeps you hooked, taking you on a journey through Hardangerfjord, the orchard of Norway to the Naeroyfjord, on the UNESCO World Heritage list for its beauty. Then continue to the Sognefjord, the longest and deepest in Norway, followed by a trip to Jostedalsbreen National park to see the Jostedal Glacier.

The incredible journey continues to the fjord village of Flam, before boarding one of the most spectacular rail lines in the world, the Flamsbana, taking you on a winding 20 kilometre track to the mountain station Myrdal. From here you connect with the Bergen rail line to Oslo, where you spend time exploring the Norwegian capital, with a city sightseeing tour included and the end of your magical journey.
