This is just too simple to not do. As I was travelling with my elderly mother I organised for a porter service to take our large bags ahead to Bergen. It was the best decision I made. To just do this with hand luggage was much easier. The 1st train ride from Oslo allows you to see the countryside and... More

Having spent a week in Norway, this day was most definitely my favourite (despite the long day). Although it's not so much a tour in the way that you have to make your own way onto the bus/ trains and boats, it's so incredibly easy as it's so well organised. The views of the waterfall, the flåm railway and the... More

The train system in Norway is very good, modern clean and well appointed. Plenty of room for bags and big comfortable seats, much better than flying, but not as fast. This is a relaxing way to travel, you can go and get something to eat or drink at your convenience, not when a cart rolls past. The train from Myrdal... More

We were really looking forward to the trip. We started by local train from Bergen, along with hundreds of other tourists. We were taken by surprise by just how many people were doing exactly the same trip. You basically go with the crowd from one form of transport to another. There is a lot of elbowing and pushing in front... More

If you want to know what Norway is all about do this trip. Its a marvelous introduction to Norwegian nature and to Norwegian culture. It is all but impossible to truly understand the Norwegians without having as a minimum done this trip.

First of all, we tackled the whole enchalada taking the trip from Bergen to Oslo. It took us 14 hours and will admit by the end we were more than a bit punchy and beat. It is the price you pay to see so much and go so far in quite an unusual experience. And please, DO NOT WORRY about... More

The entire NIN TOUR was better than expected with some incredible scenery and the trip went exactly as planned with no hiccups. We had added a night stay at Flam and were incredibly delighted we did.

This is a beautiful excursion to take frfreom Bergen or Voss, but it's a long one and it gets a bit tiresome in the end. The bustour to Gudvangen is OK, the boat trip from Gudvangen to Flam long, but relaxed. Then it's on to the Flam railway and that's where things get tiring. The landscape is gorgeous, of course,...
