I was travelling by myself and went on the Fjord tour. It was a great way to visit the country and to move easily between places. The way it is organised is very complete and everything runs in time. I really recommend it!

My wife and I have already booked 2 nights in Oslo and then by train for 2 nights in Bergen as part of a broader tour of Scandinavia. I toured with a Norwegian friend by car to both places many years ago but other than greatly enjoying the trip my memories of the specific travel routes and overnight stops have faded. Was hoping this time with my wife to do a 3 day fjord tour starting from Bergen on 1 September and returning to Oslo by evening of 4 September or possibly even by 5 September. We would have time for at least 2 overnight stays enroute. Interested in suggestions as to the best way to use the 3 days. Have looked at a range of options including the Hurtigruten to Geiranger and various Norway in a Nutshell combinations for Sognefjord with return to Oslo but we seemed to be travelling just after the main summer season closes at the end of August. We are quite active, very experienced independent but budget conscious seniors. I have considered leaving the time open and making any bookings when we are in Norway but have some concerns that at the time at the end of the season travel and accommodation options may be limited. Experienced advice on tour itinerary would be appreciated!
