Introduction
There is no finer place to celebrate summer than the fjords of Norway. Whether you’re cruising the bright blue waters...walking on glaciers that carved the mind-boggling fjords...or exploring remote villages that cling to the shores, you will gain a wonderful sense of how climate and topography influence history, culture and daily life. Along the way, we feast on fish fresh from the North Sea with tart lingonberries for dessert. We wander lush wildflower meadows—and go for after-dinner strolls in the late-night sunlight. Of course, there are constant reminders of the Vikings, whose descendants are warm and supremely hospitable. Your visit includes stays in both Oslo and Bergen, cities that contain more forest than streetscape. From a 900-year-old rural church to the museum that houses the works of Edvard Munch, this week brings you in touch with an incredible array of Norwegian experiences.
Itinerary at a glance
DAY 1 - OSLO
We meet in Oslo, and start the week with a guided walk through the city center visiting City Hall and the Viking Ship Museum with 9th century vessels that were recovered from ancient burial grounds. The all-night summer sun is still bright for tonight’s dinner in one of Oslo’s finest restaurants overlooking the city.

DAYS 2-4 - HAFSLO
Nature is never far away in Norway. This morning we leave Oslo by train and connect to the famous Flåm Railway, one of the most spectacular train rides in the world. Then we board a boat to cruise through narrow Nærøyfjord and join a ferry crossing to spectacular Sognefjord, the largest in Norway. Our hotel sits right along the Hafslo river, and it’s an ideal home base for our explorations. One day, you’ll go kayaking with our outfitters on a placid glacier-fed lake and join trained professional guides to walk on Jostedal Glacier. We’ll also ride the local ferry from Solvorn to Urnes, a medieval village with a remarkable stave church that’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

DAYS 5-7 - BERGEN
A morning boat ride takes us to Bergen, where a fascinating walk takes us through the fish market, into the Hanseatic Quarter, and to the museum that houses the works of Edvard Munch, famous for “The Scream”. We’ll also take the scenic funicular ride to the top of Mt. Fløyen, where the walking trails deliver amazing panoramic views. You’ll have plenty of time to explore on your own or go shopping. Tonight, we ferry to an island for our farewell dinner in a restaurant situated right by the sea with spectacular views over the fjord. On our final day, we part company in Bergen.
