We booked Norway in a Nutshell for our port stop in Flam. The boat, bus and first leg of the tour was wonderful but the last leg of the train ride was very crowded and lost the "scenic" experience. I would still recommend this tour.

The tour gives a overview of the amazing landscape which is there in Norway. The way the tour is organised gives a great peek into what Norway has to offer. It certainly is God's paradise. Highly recommended for everyone. Just consider the weather as it might get cold even in summers.

I am currently on the Norway in a Nutshell tour. Our boat to Gudvangen arrived late and we were last off the boat. Myself and 11 other people on the tour were left behind when the bus pulled away as we walked up. We are now paying 2000 kr on a taxi trying to get back to Voss. We've called... More

Our family had originally planned to drive from Oslo to Bergen before taking the ferry to Hirstals in Denmark, but after reading the various reviews and visiting the web site, we decided to try the Norway in a Nutshell one-day trip. Overall, we enjoyed the trip and are glad we did it, but let me add a note of reality... More

Picked up a boat rip from Flam after coming down on the railway. Flam itself in a beautiful location but very busy the day I was there. the mountains are spectacular, and the wild flowers stunning .Walk a little and there is a lovely wooden café, just past the hotel, away from the busy throng. The boat rip along the... More

We began our tour in Bergen. We were glad we arrived at the train station about 30 min. early as the line for the train got long quickly. The scenery was pretty, but it seemed like we were in tunnels a lot of the time. At Voss, we went straight from the train to the bus. It was a little... More

Magnificent views of a beautiful and unique country. Don't let this slip through your fingers. The day is full of excitement, including a bus trip across a mountain pass with multiple hairpin turns and beautiful waterfalls. The train and boat journeys are relaxing and equally enjoyable. Be sure to find rail-side chairs on the boat, and ask the staff for... More

This was booked as part of a self styled and tour supported week's holiday. NOTE: You do have to organise yourself as it is public transport, so be warned. Ask questions and don't get left behind. Saying all that we enjoyed the tour from Oslo to Bergen. It is a long day but you see plenty and many of the... More

I started this tour in Bergen and I have to say it is a fantastic way to see some of the best Norway has to offer. It is a self guided tour whereby the traveller is provided all the train, bus and ferry tickets to complete the round trip of four days. All you have to do is turn up... More

This trip is worth every penny spent. The trains, the bus and the boat all had spectacular views. So many waterfalls, cliffs, greenery, clear water you could see to the bottom of the stream or lake...the list could go on and on. So very glad that we did it. My only word of advice is make sure you have all... More
