Just back from Norway. Love the country. Went on the 'Nutshell' from Bergen. Admittedly it was a Saturday but it was so CROWDED. Every portion of the journey was pushing and shoving to get a seat. This was not the leisurely outing that I had foreseen. If I had stayed in one place it would have been another two hours... More

Well worth it. You have options to do it in one day or you can hop off and sleep over at a hotel during the tour and continue the next day etc. Lots of options.

If you like to have your travel plans worked out by a tour operator, this is the business for you. We typically plan our own vacations, based on TripAdviser reviews, so this was new for us. It was difficult for me to totally enjoy this because I knew I could have done it cheaper. But for a group of 22... More

This tours are a must when visiting Norway. On summer (july), we took the train with some friends from Bergen to Myrdal, and then Flåm railway. Flåm railway is one of the most beautiful train journeys in he world, which offers the wildest panoramic views and magnificent Norwegian nature and fiord landscapes. In approximately 1 hour you will be travelling... More

Due to a landslide the train due to depart from Oslo arrived almost 2 hours late. A section was inaccessible by trains but the tour conductors accommodated us and had a taxi ready at Mydral for us. All the delay meant that instead of reaching at 9.45 pm we reached Flam at midnight! Thanks to the nutshell tours we managed... More

We were part of a coach trip touring some parts of Western Norway and were taken by coach to Voss where we boarded a train for Myrdal. Here we changed onto a vintage train, where we had carriages reserved for us, for a 12 mile train ride, two of which were through tunnels, to Flam. The ride was beautiful with... More

Overall, we enjoyed our NiN trip, though it required a lot of movement. We took the train from Bergen to Voss, the bus to Gudvangen and the boat to Flam. We then changed for the express boat to Balestrand, where we stayed for 3 nights. Some comments about Flam: They need more places to sit and relax while waiting for... More

I spent a few days in Bergin then took the 14 hour Norway in a Nutshell tour to get to Oslo where I stayed for several days. The weather was not very accommodating, so much of the trip was overcast. That said, the views and glorious waterfalls were well worth the trip, in spite of the weather. One disappointment was... More

Book this trip, be moderately competent to read travel tickets, and it will be one of the best days of your life. We did the Bergen roundtrip, and all of the connections between trains, boat and bus were clear. Each of these modes showed something spectacular. This should be called the best waterfall tour in the world. If you need... More
