Itinerary

ARRIVE IN OSLO, NORWAY. Check into your hotel. The rest of the day is free to start exploring Oslo, bustling capital of this land of fjords, mountains, glaciers, and waterfalls. Tonight, meet your Tour Director and fellow travelers.
OSLO–ARENDAL–KRISTIANSAND. Today, travel along the scenic “Norwegian Riviera”—the Sørlandet (South Land) and the Skagerrak (a strait between Norway, Sweden, and Denmark)—and visit the idyllic harbor town of Arendal. A port since the 14th century, it is known for its timber exports and its old Town Hall, the tallest wooden structure in the country. Overnight in Kristiansand, founded in 1641 and today an important industrial center. Here, you will enjoy time at the lively FISKEBRYGGA (fish market), the perfect place to watch the entertaining fishmongers or relax at one of the numerous sidewalk cafés. Breakfast and Dinner
KRISTIANSAND–STAVANGER. More ruggedly beautiful coastal scenery awaits this morning as you head into the Lista region, popular holiday area for the Norwegians and hot spot for surfers. Stop to visit some of the pristine coastal villages of whitewashed timber and lighthouses such as Mandal, Lyngdal, Flekkejord and Farsund. Overnight in Stavanger, where you could stroll through the Old Town to see a 12th-century cathedral and captivating collection of 18th- and 19th-century wooden buildings. Breakfast and Dinner
STAVANGER–HARDANGERFJORD FERRY CROSSING–BERGEN. Travel via Haugesund to board the ferry that takes you across Hardangerfjord. Have your camera ready to capture the incredible scenic vistas before arriving in pretty Bergen, the “Green Meadow Among the Mountains.” During your free time here, why not walk down to the harbor to browse the seafood stalls and sample the various salmon dishes? Breakfast and Dinner
BERGEN. Today is yours to explore Bergen at your own pace. You could spend time at Bryggen with its collection of colorful 14th-century Hanseatic buildings lining the harbor protected as UNESCO World Heritage Site; or consider joining one of our optional excursion. Breakfast and Dinner
BERGEN–FLÅM TRAIN–SOGNEFJORD AREA. A special treat today! Ride on the renowned FLÅM TRAIN and see some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery—graceful waterfalls, towering mountains, and verdant valleys. Later, CRUISE across Norway’s legendary SOGNEFJORD. Breakfast and Dinner
SOGNEFJORD AREA–LOEN. Reach the Nordfjorden region today and take a break in enchanting Loen, gateway to some of Norway's glaciers and home to some of the country’s oldest farms. Breakfast and Dinner
LOEN. EXCURSION TO DALSNIBBA AND GEIRANGER. Today, ascend above the tree line to 5,000 feet and marvel at the panoramic views of the fjord from the DALSNIBBA SKYWALK LOOKOUT. Then, reach the Geiranger fjord, one of the most spectacular sceneries in the world. Enjoy this incredible UNESCO World Heritage Site, or maybe relax with a glass of traditional mjød (honey mead) or akvavit (Scandinavian liquor flavored with caraway) and bask in Geiranger’s unforgettable ambiance. Breakfast and Dinner
LOEN–LOM–LILLEHAMMER. Stop in Lom to see its iconic wooden stave church, which dates back to the 12th century. Continue to Lillehammer, host of the 1994 Winter Olympics and home today to a lively art scene. Breakfast and Dinner
LILLEHAMMER–HAMAR–OSLO. The dynamic city of Hamar is located on the eastern shore of Miøsa, the largest lake in Norway and one of the deepest lakes in Europe. Visit the fascinating OPEN-AIR ETHNOLOGICAL MUSEUM, an active archaeological site that includes ruins of a 950-year-old cathedral enclosed in a protective glass and steel structure. Later, return to Oslo for a guided tour of the medieval Akershus Castle guarding the harbor, the soaring City Hall, National Theater, Parliament, Royal Palace, Broadcasting House, and Frogner Park with more than 200 bronze and granite sculptures by artist Gustav Vigeland.
