The world worshipped fjords are not to be missed. The waterfalls on the Flam train tour are beautiful and dramatic! The air is so pure and sweet - please bottle it!

A great way to experience the wonderful scenery that Norway offers but does highlight the poor level of organisation that seems to exist in the country public transport systems Got to Bergen station 45 mins ahead of ten departure time ( after being advised to do so when collecting the tickets the day before) only to be confronted with no...

we were not sure whether to book this tour or to self drive from Bergen to Oslo. We made the right decision in booking! Organisation is faultless. We stayed in Flam hosel for two nights; also a good decision; too far to do without a break?. Some of the lesser sung parts of the trip were the best; first part... More

I was very against this tour in the beginning because I felt it was too touristy. Boy, was I wrong. The cruise is almost self-guided. This tour organizes just the transportation around the fjord area (for me it was the naeroyfjord). It's great because it allows you some freedom and you're not always surrounded by the same people, though there... More

The Norway in a Nutshell Tour is not a guided tour (although you might expect some signage for the amount you're paying), and in fact, there are no NSB staff available for much of the journey, which can lead to problems. Essentially, this 'tour' is a series of tickets for transportation that link up to take you from Oslo to... More

Trip easy to be organized also without buying the package. Take the train to Myrdal from Oslo Central, then the small train up to Flam and the boat to Bergen. We did not have good weather so we did not enjoy it particularly. The place is rich of waterfalls but the risk is that everything is grey and that water... More

What an amazing way to get a taste of Norway and the Fjords. I did the return journey from and to Oslo, which be warned, is a mighty long day starting at 6.45am. The Bergen railway takes you to Myrdal, the first stop, and is a 5 hr train ride. There are some really stunning views along the way, to... More

We took the Norway in a nutshell tour from Oslo to Bergen in one day and it was truly amazing!! We booked it on the Fjord Tours website and picked our route and received the confirmation email with our full itinerary the next day. We went to the Olso Central Train Station to pick up the tickets the day before... More

We stay in Norway for almost two weeks and spent two days in NiN Oslo-Mybral-Flåm-Gudvanger-Voss-Bergen. We arranged the tickets ourselves. We read posts about skipping the NIN when you have the time to travel other parts of Norway, I should have listened to these advice: it's like a big group of people moving from one vehicle to another, crowded, noisy...
