Discover the Norway's spectacular landscape on our Norwegian fjords holiday.

There are some places in the world that words simply cannot do justice. There are places with landscapes, views, or an atmosphere it's hard to take in all at once. There are places you visit that you promise to return to. The fjords of Western Norway are among those places.

The image above gives you some idea of what to expect: villages of white-painted cottages surrounded by orchards, sheer mountainsides, forests, lakes and pristine Norwegian glaciers. But you have to see the location with your own eyes to really appreciate its beauty and scale.

So, if you like spending time in the great outdoors and enjoy everything that nature has to offer, you'll love this superb value holiday.

See what else awaits you on this journey to Norway.

Your Norwegian Fjords Holiday Itinerary

Every day a new experience

Day One: Fly to Bergen and transfer to your four-star hotel in Balestrand

Fly to Bergen, meet your Tour Manager and transfer, by coach, through spectacular scenery to the village of Balestrand. Settle in to your room, and acquaint yourself with your surroundings, before enjoying your first extensive buffet dinner in the hotel.

Day Two: Explore Balestrand and the shores of the Sognefjord

Today, you'll get to explore Balestrand. The village is located on the northern shore of the Sognefjord, Norway's largest and best-known fjord and the second longest in the world. The area has long attracted visitors who love the clear fresh air, enjoy the beautiful scenery and appreciate the warmth of the welcome virtually everywhere they go.

Day Three: Take a boat trip to explore Bergen

Your first included excursion is an unforgettable day trip by boat to the historic trading port of Bergen. There you'll discover a city of cobbled streets and brightly coloured medieval houses, as well as a busy harbour and open-air fish market. Stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen, and perhaps take the seven-minute trip on the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.

Day Four: An all-too-rare opportunity to visit to the Jostedal Glacier

Join us for today's optional visit to the Jostedal Glacier, mainland Europe's largest ice-floe, and you'll see why it's often described as a mesmerising sight. During the excursion you'll also be able to learn more about this slowly shifting mass at the fascinating Norwegian Glacier Museum.

Day Five: Take advantage of the Norway in a Nutshell optional excursion

Our much-loved Norway in a Nutshell optional excursion takes you on a tour of one of the world's most scenic regions. The experience-packed day includes a ride on the world-famous Flamsbana line from Myrdal to Flam, and a two-hour fjord cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.

Day Six: Explore Sognefjord and the Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger

On today's included excursion you can explore Sognefjord and visit the fascinating Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger. The museum's fine collection of fishing and 'ice' boats reflecting Norway's age-old interaction with the sea and the fjords.

Day Seven: Spend the day in Balestrand

Spend your final day relaxing in Balestrand. It's your last chance to do your own thing and make the very most of the village and its surroundings. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel and look back on the highlights of your unique holiday.

Day Eight: Return home to the UK

Transfer back to Bergen airport, and check in for your flight home from Scandinavia.

Worthing Couple
We had a lovely holiday. The flights were uneventful, the transfers were on time and comfortable, the outings were very interesting and well run and the tour manager, coach driver and all the hotel staff were extremely good and friendly. The Hotel accommodation was good, clean and the services were well run. The food was of the highest standard and was extremely good with a well varied menu. We would highly recommend this holiday.

Forres Couple
Very enjoyable-made better by the fantastic weather; Norway is such a beautiful Country but very expensive; I would suggest to anyone doing this trip to take a travel kettle and buy duty free drinks on the way out! A supply of cereal bars etc is also a good idea. The cost of food and drinks otherwise could easily equate with the cost of the holiday

Pontypool Couple
Very good hotel, warm and comfortable. The location could not have been better and Norway is a stunningly beautiful country, but very expensive. Flights were on time but we were charged for our baggage on the outward flight, despite the cost being included in the holiday price, because of some admin error. The tour manager addressed this problem for the return flight.
An enjoyable holiday and recommended for others.P

Dunphail, Forres, Moray IV36 2QH Couple
From the word go, everything was excellent - Flight from Aberdeen to Bergen and back went extremely well - no hold-ups at all - baggage waiting for us when we got off the plane. Don't mind using self check in machines but luggage labels were a bit complicated in Bergen and had to be done again - no problems at all at Aberdeen - excellent. The whole holiday was well organised and the group were very friendly - the hotel was excellent - couldn't fault it, the staff were great. Our coach driver, Anders, was also excellent - never missed a ferry yet! Anne, our courier, did very well keeping a diverse group of people in line. All the tours were very interesting and well organised. Whoever ordered the weather should be congratulated - large balls of sunshine every day! Stunning scenery.

Larbert Couple
Tour guide was a bit vague regarding whether the meal at the museum was included in the trip. On the last day we were not sure who was taking us to the airport. We assumed rightly it was Anders but it wasn't clear. The visit to the museum was a bit constrained and we did not have time to wander further than the three ones we were taken to see. These are minor points. It was a great holiday, great location and one of the best couriers we have had.

ANDREW

Couple
Very enjoyable but timing was an issue. We had only 15 minutes to look around a museum which covered 3 floors, and so this was unacceptable. We should have been told that most attractions and facilities were going to be closed down for the end of the season. This meant you could not get lunch anywhere (apart from soup). The wait at Bergen airport to collect other passengers was too long (well over 3 hours). The food in the hotel was very good quality but was virtually the same every day. Tea and coffee facilities in the rooms at the hotel would have been very welcomed.

Loved the area and the hotel. Unfortunately the guide kept getting timings wrong - maybe time for her to retire?
