We took a train from Bryggen to Voss, a bus to Gudvangen and a ferry to Flam. We stayed in Flam for one night (loved it!) then took the train to Myrdol, and another train to Oslo. While not luxury transportation, they were fine and ran pretty efficiently. This is not a tour per se, as there is no one... More

Our family of five took the Norway in a Nutshell tour in July 2014. They have several tours and it was difficult to pick the most interesting one. With help from the tour operator we chose the one below. It is expensive and very weather dependent so we waited until we were in Bergen and then chose the best weather... More

Just came back from Norway, have done Norway in a Nutshell on my own. It was more easy than I expected. Great country, divine beauty, warm people! Feel greatly impressed. This will be memories for a lifetime.

We have recently done the Norway in a Nutshell twice this summer. Oslo to Bergen & direct train back to Oslo. 1st was back in mid-May. The weather was amazing!! & the Waterfalls were spectacular. I think early season is definitely the way to go. Less crowds & more snow on the mountains = better waterfalls. We spent 1 night... More

The 2-day round tour offered the most stunning vistas of mountains, fjords, nature, etc. However, the overbooking of the tour made for a less pleasant experience. Seating on the train and the ferry were limited. Although the tour offered wonderful photographic opportunities, the sheer number of people wanting to photograph scenes made for a shoulder to shoulder "bumping" experience. Better... More

We loved the variety - train, bus, ferry boat, - as we traveled from Oslo to Bergen. It took all day, but who cares, as it doesn't get dark and the fellow travelers are so, so nice. The countryside is, of course, a wonder to behold.

Then on a train up the mountain - scenery wonderful - we were next to snow while be roasted in the blazing... More

The tour consists of booked transport and hotel tickets. I didn't actually realise it was an unaccompanied tour until we got there. Even our travel agent didn't realise I think. Small maps would have been good for arrival at Oslo to find the first hotel,and the platform number at which to catch the train. We looked for Myrdal which is... More

We took the tour beginning at Bergen to Myrdal by train, then boarded the Myrdal to Flam hour-long train down to the fjord. While waiting to board the fjord boat we took a short hike up a hill and around Flam, a lovely setting. The 2 1/2 hour fjord cruise is breathtaking; so many waterfalls streaming down as you imagine... More
