Absolute must if one has time only for a day's rapture. We took the return trip starting at Bergen, a beautiful seaside town with some old merchants quarters. The train ride to Voss through the Nordic country was wonderful but the icing was the cruise from Gudvangen to Flam in the Naeroy and Aurlandsfjord. Although the ferry was packed with... More

We looked up the weather forecast and booked the trip on relatively sunny Sunday. It was worth it and every view of the landscape was beautiful. the view kept getting better and from the cruise the view of the landscape with tall green mountains with super tall waterfalls and the blue water beneath make for a picture perfect scenery!

This is the best tour if you are short on time in norway. The train views are beautiful and the ferry is a must do. Ask for student discount on it. The best way to see the fjord. Flam railway views were ordinary.

We only had one full day in Bergen and were disappointed that we had missed the early departing tour. However the tourist office was very helpful to get us the tickets to do the NiaN the "other way round" which included a train ride from Bergen to Voss, a coach ride to board a ferry to Gudvangen to view the...

We took the one day Oslo to Bergen tour, trip includes trains, boat and bus and is about 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. in length. We stayed at the Comfort Hotel Grand Central in Oslo which was right at the train station so very convenient. HIGHLY recommend that if you have luggage you use the portage service! It's worth the...

We booked this trip online. Upon our arrival in Bergen we picked up our tickets in the rail station. The train ride from Bergen to Myrdal gives you first impression but is nothing compared to rest of the trip, mainly of the many tunnels (sit on the left side). In Myrdal you change to Flam railways which is already more... More

We booked the package on their official website, and got the tickets at the Bergen train station. The tour was arranged smoothly, the scenic view is great all the way.

We first made this tour from Bergen when it was in its infancy, booked seats on the Bergen-Oslo express and the company of a few like-minded travellers on the Gudvangen to Flam sailing: all very peaceful and well organised, stimulating and spectacular. Meanwhile cruise ships and mass flights have happened. We got our tickets in the world beating Bergen Tourist... More

This can be a day tour, but we chose to overnight in Bergen. We took the train from Oslo, boarded the Fram train...smaller and older...in Myrdal, had a stop at a beautiful waterfall, and continued to Fram, where we boarded a ship for a Fjord tour ending in another town, where the bus takes you on a scenic trip to...

We took the Gerianger and Norway in a Nutshell spending an extra day in Flam. The scenery was absolutely spectacular and we would love to go back to Norway. I think our favorite parts were the ferry ride from Gudvangen to Flam and the bus ride to Alesund. The transportation is very punctual, staff providing the transport is professional and... More
