Taste of Norway

Fjord Favourites
 

This great tour combines stays in 2 of our most popular resorts - the vibrant city of Bergen with its UNESCO Bryggen Wharf and the idyllic fjordside village of Balestrand on the mighty Sognefjord - and is ideal as a taste of this beautiful country for those wishing to explore independently. Two highlights of the holiday are the 4 hour scenic express coastal boat transfer between resorts as well as a wonderful day trip to Flåm railway from Balestrand (must be pre-booked).
