Day 2  : OSLO - RJUKAN

Oslo sightseeing tour. Transfer to Rjukan

A local guide will narrate captivating, detailed stories about such known sights like Holmenkollen, Viking Ships Museum, and Vigeland. After the end of the bus tour, you will have time to stroll across the city on your own, visit the city’s restaurants, or purchase souvenirs for your friends and family.
At 18:00, you will get on a bus and start your way to Rjukan, a Norwegian town that is cozily nestled near Gaustatoppen. Stay overnight at the Rjukan hotel.

Day 3  : HIKING TO THE TOP OF GAUSTATOPPEN

Full day hiking to Gaustatoppen

Breakfast at your hotel.
Today, we are going to hike – you may see one sixth of Norway’s territory from its top on a clear, sunny day. The hike is not strenuous and takes about 2 hours one way. To reach to the top of Gaustatoppen, we will use Gaustabanen, a funicular way that takes you to the top of the mountain. After reaching the top, you will have enough time to shoot photos and enjoy a coffee in a café,      which is conveniently located there. Then, we will have to start descending the mountain by following a tourist trail. There is also an option of going down by the funicular way, which costs 100 NOK and allows you to spend more time at the top. Once we have descended the mountain, we will start our way to the Pulpit Rock Lodge. Stay overnight at Preikestolen Fjellstove.

Day 4  : PREIKESTOLEN HIKING

Pulpit Rock, Låtefossen waterfall

Breakfast at your hotel.
After having spent a night at the Pulpit Rock Lodge, we are going to hike Preikestolen. Usually, it takes about 3 hours to hike the Pulpit Rock (including return). Expect to see many tourists on the trail. Once you have reached the Pulpit Rock, you will have enough time to shoot photos and enjoy your time there.
As soon as you will descend the Pulpit Rock, we will start our way to Eidfjord. During this 5-hour long drive, we will make a stop near Låtefossen, a famous waterfall that consists of two separate streams. Eventually, stay overnight in Eidfjord.

Day 5  : HARDANGER

Activities and experiences in Hardanger

Breakfast at your hotel.
Today, we will have plenty of activities and experiences in Hardanger. You can start your day with a visit to the Norwegian Nature Center Hardanger, where you can see some of the amazing exhibitions and get some educational materials about the Norwegian nature. You also will have plenty of time to go on a picnic or try authentic Norwegian dishes there. The remaining activities are optional and include kayaking or rafting. If there will be enough people willing to take part in these activities, we will organize them for you. There are several different kayaking and rafting tours, all of which require no or minimum previous experience. The tours last between 2 and 6 hours, and each tour includes the assistance of an instructor. Return to hotel. Overnight in Eidfjord.

Day 6  : TROLLTUNGA - BERGEN

Trolltunga hike

Today, you will wake up very early and embark on a Trolltunga hike, which is very strenuous and takes between 8 and 12 hours. After reaching the destination, you will have enough time to shoot photos. We will do our best to reach Trolltunga as early as possible, so the queue will be shorter and the sunlight will not spoil your photos. After returning from Trolltunga, you will get aboard of a bus and head to Bergen. On your way, you will also board a ferry from Jondal to Tørvikbygd. Stay overnight in Bergen.

Day 7  : BERGEN - VOSS/STALHAIM

Stay overnight in Voss/Stalheim.

Day 8  : GUDVANGEN - FLAM - GEILO

After reaching the mountain village of Flåm, you will board our bus again and start your way to Geilo, a popular ski resort. Optionally, you may choose to embark on a famous Flåmsbana ride to Myrdal and, then, reach Geilo from there by train (subject to availability). Stay overnight in Geilo.

Day 9  : GEILO - OSLO

Exploring Oslo

Breakfast at your hotel.
Today, you will start your way from Geilo to Oslo, which is just a 3-hour drive away or so. You will have almost a full independent day in Oslo, which you can spend in any way you wish. However, we recommend you to visit the Magic Ice Bar, a place where everything is made of ice. Don’t worry, a jacket and gloves will be provided. The bar is known for its extraordinary, unusual ice sculptures and, thus, is recommended for a visit. Stay overnight in Oslo.
