Beautiful waterfall, Flam train stops at the station where the waterfall cascades down. You also have myths and legends of alleged maidens dancing in red dresses by the Waterfall when the train stops. Depending on when you go in the season depends on the amount of water cascading. Beautiful location and waterfall. Worth getting off the train to view it... More

Seeing the fjords was the high point of our trip to Scandinavia. They are spectacular and words cannot describe so I won't even try :-). But I do want to say that the Norway in a Nutshell tour is very easy to do. When I first started looking at the options I was a little intimated because of all the... More

My brother and I arranged a surprise weekend in Bergen for our mum's 70th birthday as she has always wanted to visit Norway, and as she can't walk too far we decided to book Norway in a Nutshell, and we were all so glad we did! We started at Bergen train station and over the course of the day saw... More

We took this daytour starting from Bergen and returning there in the evening, but one could have just as well continued to Oslo or have started from there. It's a wonderful way of seeing the beautiful Norwegian landscape, even though it is - as stated in some other reviews - most of the time from a train or bus. Still,... More

Norway in a Nutshell is fantastic overall. I agree with most of the other reviewers, so I'm only going to write about what could be improved, in the hope my experience will help others plan a smoother trip. 1. We were assigned departure times arbitrarily. I designed my trip on the Nutshell website, and took it for granted that a... More

If you like the great outdoors this is NOT for you. If you like to sit in a bus and watch nice scenary go by this IS for you. The entire day felt like we were shuffled from one mode of transport to another. Long (2 hrs?) train ride to another historic train (1 hr?) then optional stop (2-3 hrs?)... More

Get ready to take a lot of pictures, just beautiful scenery. Very nice, roomy ferry and train, well narrated. I can't think of a better way to get from Bergen to Oslo in one day. I have never seen so many waterfalls in one day. The scenery is amazing! The trip started at 8:45am from Bergen and arrived in Oslo... More

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! The... More

I visited Norway at the End of August. I looked at the Norway in a nutshell itinerary and I booked the same by myself (Day trip from Bergen and returning to Bergen). I booked the train tickets in Advance on the nsb.no website. This way I could get an earlier train out of Bergen to Myrdal than the schedules on... More
