I just wanted to add my 2 cents, I just did the day trip yesterday with you guys. I had an amazing time and winter just added its own beauty into the whole trip. When we got to Myrdal it was like a winter wonder land, as a matter a fact some of my friends thought I went to Siberia... More

I spent 7 days of my winter holidays in Norway. 2 days were for transportations, so I had 5 days to cover Norway as much as possible. I decided to spend 3 days in the West Coast. One day in Stavanger, half a day in Bergen and the last day with Norway in a nutshell. I started by taking a... More

Wed Nov 12, Was only in Bergen for 2 nights/ Norway for 2 nights and wanted to get out to the Fjords so I did a full day trip. Got to the train station at 8am and off to Voss we went, The tour is self guided and very independent so you do your own thing. The bus connection to... More

I booked this self guided tour through Fjord tours, and I got the round trip from Bergen. Picked up the tickets and off we went! I ws worried because I do not know Norway geography that we'll and since this is self guided I wasn't sure when to get off each mode of transport. The train driver on the train... More

I think this tour is truly Norway in a Nutshell. It is such a hassle-free way to see the different landscape of Norway. I did it in Winter (December), so I decided to break the trip into two days to maximize what I can see in the limited day light. After some research I decided to do the round trip... More

This tour started at 8am, and got us back to Bergen by 6pm. Its a brilliantly organised (but unguided) tour which takes in mountains and fjords, with travel by train(both old style and modern), coach and boat. A great way of seeing lovely parts of Norway in a short time without the hassle of organising the different tour legs individually.... More

Have just taken NiN & hereby penning down by thoughts/tips which were almost missing in all reviews/Forums. Most Imp Tip: 1. If you are coming in Winters (Oct-Feb) Pl always start from Bergen to Oslo or Bergen round trip else you will miss out on scenery. It's pitch dark till 9.30am and than again pitch dark after 4PM. If you... More

We had a fantastic day with the Norway in a NutShell tour. We started in Bergen. Scenery was great. The time in Flam was just about right in order to see around the town and have some lunch. The cruise on the fjord was made a little difficult with a rain shower as we started. So would encourage anyone that... More

It was raining when we started, raining during the trip, and raining when we returned. I am positive that in sunshine the trip would even have been better-but it was spectacular even in the rain. The scenery never stops from the start to the finish, and there are waterfalls, valleys, and beautiful pastoral scenes with amazing backdrops.

Taking this tour was one of the best decisions I've made as a traveler. This is a must-do especially if it's your first time to Norway. It was an easy introduction to the Norwegian landscapes without the hassles of having to book everything on your own. We did 2 nights in Oslo, 1 night in Flam, 1 night in Bergen... More
