We took this tour from Bergen which I understand is shorter than the Oslo version, we also took it on Easter Sunday so many attractions that may otherwise have been open were shut. The tour consists of a 2 hour train, 1 hour train, 2 hour ferry, 1 hour bus and 1 hour train. Only on the ferry and flam... More

We joined the Bergen-to-Oslo day trip tour, and the scenery was truly breath-taking. The weather was not the best, it was snowing heavily when we were on the train to Voss and the bus to Gudvangen. There was on-and-off light rain on the cruise to Flam as well. However, the scenery during the cruise was still very nice, and the... More

I absolutely loved this trip! Obviously the scenery and transport is incredible, but I also loved the organisation of the tour. Yes, it's a planned itinerary, but you are fairly free to have a little wander around at certain points, and you don't feel part of a herd. You do have to pass through some touristy shops, but there is... More

I did the Oslo to Bergen one-way trip on 8 April. It was wonderful! As you get closer to Myrdal, the landscape becomes increasingly mountainous/ elevated and at this time of year there was still a lot of snow (over a metre in places) and frozen lakes - wonderful. The views are simply stunning! The Flamsbana section is very touristy... More

I took this tour during the last week in March, 2015. I did the round-trip from Bergen, and didn't do any stopovers - I did it all in one day. The main thing I was worried about was finding the next connection at each stop, but it was very easy. Not only is your next mode of transport very close... More

We read so many raving reviews and the reviews were on point! We went and absolutely enjoyed all the different cities on all the different modes of transport. We did the full-day R/T Bergen-Voss-Gudvangen-Flam-Myrdal-back to Bergen and especially loved our time in Flam and the ride on the Flamsbana. The scenery is gorgeous, and this is a must if you...

the boat is very comfortable and there are drinks and snacks available for purchase. however, there was this huge group on board who made the boar a little too crowded. Also, I think the trip could be a little shorter. 2,5 hours is a bit too long in my view.

we did this trip in early April and it was busy so if you are planning to do it at peak times then care is probably needed. We started the trip in Bergen and although we arrived 15 minutes before departure we only just got a seat on train. You get great views either side. At Voss there is a... More

Such an amazing trip. Make sure you so it. We did the trip from Bergen and back again in the same day. Lovely train from Flam over the mountain pass, and boat ride through the fjords. Incredible views.
