The one day Norway in a Nutshell might be a bit of a touristy thing to do, but it sums of a lot of action in a short period and takes you direct to some great locations Train is on time from Bergen - switch to the bus and short journey to the launch for the boat for the Fjords... More

We took the tour from Oslo to Bergen with one night stay in flam. I would say the best way to do is by taking breaks and staying in the places we want more time to see. We took the heritage fjord safari which was amazing and you get to see the fjords from close with lots of stories about... More

We left Bergen at 8am and returned (late) after 6pm. It just felt like a long day of travelling on trains, bus and boat. The weather was misty and there was a lot of time wasted at small, boring places (with only an over-priced souvenir shop open). If these pointless stops were eliminated/reduced then it would have been much nicer.

I I began the tour in Voss . Even so, the tour lasted all day. The boat passes among the most famous fjords , not apra at no. I wanted to stop at some fjord , but unfortunately it was not possible. The entire ride scenery makes up for the long trip.

I booked the day tour on Oslo train station to start from Voss. Yes it is very customizable according to your needs. It includes a majestic journey on bus from Voss (right outside the train station) to Gudvangen, a small village at the head of the Naeroyfjord. From here, we took a boat to Flam, terminal station for heritage Flam... More

The tour really does give you a magnificent day out. Both the train and boat journey are wonderful and the frozen waterfall at Flam is just otherworldly. You can easily book all the bits yourself ( pay for the boat and train on board) and save yourself a fair bit of money. Well worth doing

Hi, Thanks for your review here at Tripadvisor. Yes, it`s possible to book some parts on your own, however you are never guaranteed for availability. Therefor we have done the job for you at a very good price. In that way you can sit back and enjoy the highlights of the tour with one ticket only. I hope you will... More

It is a quite long journey, but good. You can see the fjords and the great nature. It makes a number of stops so that you can see small villages there.

Although unescorted, there were enough people for a coach load on this day trip from Bergen to Voss to Gudwangen to Flåm to Myrdal and back to Bergen. All the staff on the rail, the coach, the ship, shops and cafes were very helpful and all spoke English very well. I particularly enjoyed the ship (Lykkeper)breaking the ice on it's... More

The bus from the Voss train station was packed, there were 3 buses loads. NSB operators just pile people on but they don't bother making sure that that amount of people can fit in the ferry. Over 20 people had to be turned away from taking the ferry. The ferry ride itself to Flam was okay, but nothing exciting, it... More
