Day 1  : ARRIVAL IN BERGEN

Meet your fellow travelers and tour escort at 7:50 pm in the hotel lobby, right before dinner.

Dinner and accommodation at the newly renovated Clarion Hotel Admiral, located in an old warehouse building dating back to 1904, right in the heart of Bergen near the harbor.

Day 2  : BERGEN – SOGNEFJORD - BALESTRAND

After breakfast, we take a private coach to Voss, where we board the train on the spectacular Flåm Railway. From Flåm, we take a fjord cruise on the spectacular Nærøyfjord to Gudvangen and enjoy the views of the world's most beautiful landscapes, included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Continue driving through the Stalheim and the Vika Mountains to Vangsnes for the short ferry crossing to the beautiful resort of Balestrand.

Dinner and accommodation at Kvikne's Hotel, superbly located on the banks of the fjord and surrounded by mountains.

Day 3  : BALESTRAND – A DAY IN THE FJORDS

A free day in Balestrand gives you the opportunity to relax in the outstanding nature of the Norwegian fjords. You may spend the morning reading on the hotel terrace, surrounded by the fresh mountain air and spectacular views, or visit a local aquarium and art gallery. A hike to the nearest mountains is also a good option. No matter what you do, you will always remember the day in Balestrand.

Day 4  : BALESTRAND – BRIKSDAL GLACIER - GEIRANGER

Today we take a ferry Dragsvik to Hella and a scenic tour along the northern shore of the Sognefjord to Sogndal. We then proceed driving to Fjærland, below the Jostedal Glacier. On to Olden, then we visit the Briksdal Glacier in "Troll Cars" and enjoy a traditional Norwegian lunch in a local restaurant with glacier views.

In the afternoon, we drive through Loen and Stryn to the charming village of Hellesylt. From here, we take a Geirangerfjord cruise. Geirangerfjord is one of the narrowest in Norway.
