2025 Tour Details 2024 Tour Details »

Deep-blue fjords, breathtaking mountains, glimmering glaciers, and flowing waterfalls… these are natural wonders you expect to see in Norway, and on this Norway tour, you’ll experience all of this and more.

A highlight of this Norway tour is a breathtaking ride on the Flåm railway, one of the world’s most scenic train rides, which passes through 20 tunnels and climbs to an elevation of 2,833 feet (864 meters). Marvel at the hypnotic waterfalls cascading down the side of steep, snowcapped mountains, rivers winding through deep gorges; farms on the side of steep slopes, and views of Sognefjord, Norway’s longest fjord.

Travel on the Hardanger National Tourist Road, carefully developed to take you through some of Norway’s most stunning scenery, and stop at Steinsdalsfossen waterfall, where you can walk behind the cascading falls without getting wet.

In addition to breathtaking scenery, Norway also offers you a country steeped in history. In the Middle Ages, Norwegians built churches out of wood. Only 28 of these stave churches now remain in Norway, and in Borgund, you’ll admire one of Norway’s best-preserved stave churches dating back to 1180. Stay two nights in Bergen, founded in 1070, where guided sightseeing features the main sights and a walking tour of Bryggen. From the magnificent scenery to the vibrant cities—including a train ride back to Oslo and an extra night—this tour through Norway will delight all of your senses.

OIVIND FURE

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

" I am a full-blooded Scandinavian who considers it a true pleasure to have you as my guest. I look forward to showing you my favorite places: the scenic roads and breathtaking beauty of Scandinavia, Finland, and Russia. Be ready for a fascinating journey from 1,000-year-old vibrant Viking cities, through ice-blue fjords surrounded by snowcapped mountains and thundering waterfalls, to colorful fjord villages and fruit farms. "Traverse the unique landscapes of Lapland in the ultimate north and experience the warm summer climate and a sun that does not set." "

Tour Director -  OIVIND FURE

RITA MARTINS

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

" I love to explain the culture, history, and traditions of Spain, Portugal, and Morocco. My goal is that by the end of a tour, the tour members have unique memories and experiences. For me, being a Tour Director is not just about the traveling, but mainly about spending time with each person. I enjoy sharing experiences, contributing toward happy memories, making dreams come true, and creating new bonds."

Tour Director -  RITA MARTINS

ANNA-LENA SODERLUND TORNELL

Escorting tours for more than 20 years

" I love to bring visitors to areas where I have lived and worked, i.e. Scandinavia, Russia and Central Europe, to give a piece of my culture to the guests, to make the clients feel at home by introducing them to all aspects of life in the area. To open our eyes and understand customs, habits and history, "what makes me tick the way I tick, and you tick differently" is my focus. How to make the best Swedish meatballs, how to sing children's songs or sharing a proverb we use a lot. When we come back home after a tour, we have a different set of 'glasses'. The knowledge of the world has changed us a bit and we are all part of it, plus we had a really great time together!"
