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.

This trip was great - relaxing enough when on board. There wad a bit of changing transport. We left bergen on a train for voss. Then straight on a bus for gudhaven. Then on a boat for flam. 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

we did this tour because it was so highly recommended everywhere. firstly, THIS IS NOT A TOUR, it is just a series of tickets to transport, there is no "tour guide", commentary or otherwise, other than the brief spiel you get on each individual transport. 1. the bergen rail was mostly tunnels and nothing special 2.the bus trip was ok,...

We have had a great time in Norway, but this trip is over priced, over crowded, and does not deliver, except for the bus ride down Stalheimskleivi. We were crowded on a commuter train - don't expect to be assigned a seat, the ride was Gorgeous, but the train windows filthy. The depot was darling in Voss, but no time... More

This is a great tour for seeing some of Norway if you have limited time. However, having lived in Norway for about six months now, I did this with my parents. For my parents, it was great for them to get to see some of the country. For me, I wouldn't recommend anyone new to the country or been here... More
