Overnight in Oslo

Day 2  : Oslo – Flam Railway – Flam

Breakfast at the hotel (please request an early breakfast). Early morning departure on the scenic Bergen Railway through the Hallingdal Valley, via Geilo and across a mountain plateau to Myrdal. Ride the famous Flåm Railway, descending 2,840 feet in 12 miles, into the wild Flåm Valley, passing spectacular scenery of waterfalls, mountain cliffs, tiny settlements and farms. Upon arrival in Flåm your afternoon is at leisure. Check in at the beautiful Fretheim Hotel located across from the Railway Station. This evening, enjoy a delicious buffet dinner at the hotel.

Overnight in Flam (B, D)

Day 3  : Flam – Voss – Bergen

Breakfast at the hotel. Morning at leisure. Flåm is the beginning of an unforgettable 2-hour boat journey along the Aurlandsfjord and Nærøyfjord. Pass the fjord villages of Aurland and Undredal with Scandinavia's smallest Stave church, dating from 1147. Shortly after the Stigen mountain farm the boat will turn into the Nærøyfjord, the narrowest, most dramatic, and yet the most beautiful of the secondary fjords to the Sognefjord. Picturesque farms and villages are nestled along the steep mountainsides, reaching peaks up to 4500 ft. The cruise ends in Gudvangen. Continue with a 1-hour bus ride up the narrow Nærøy Valley, across the steep hairpin bends of the Stalheim Canyon Road, descending to the fjord village of Voss. Here you reconnect with the Bergenbanen arriving from Oslo and Myrdal, continuing to Bergen. A short train ride brings you to the colorful Hanseatic city of Bergen.

Overnight in Bergen (B)

Day 4  : Bergen

Spend the day exploring this enchanting maritime city. Take a city tour of Bergen and enjoy the Hanseatic Museum at Bryggen, St. Mary's Church, Korskirken Church, and The Rosenkrantz Tower. Visit the famous Fish & Flower Market and purchase local shrimp or salmon for a delicious snack, and if it is a clear day, ride the funicular up to Mt. Fløien for panoramic views of the city and fjord far below. You can ride the funicular back down, or do as the locals, walk back down.
