Itinerary

Day One

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

Day Two

Today, get to know Balestrand. Since the late 19th Century, Sognefjord has welcomed visitors searching for clear mountain air and enchanting scenery, and whenever you go, the area's natural beauty will enchant you, as will the warmth of the welcome virtually everywhere you go.

Day Three

Your first included excursion is an unforgettable day trip by boat to the historic trading port of Bergen. Join us to discover a city of cobbled streets and medieval houses with a colourful harbour and open-air fish market. Stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and take the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.

Day Four

The Jostedal Glacier - mainland Europe's largest ice-flow - is a mesmerising sight that dominates the northern landscape beyond the fjords. Our optional visit here is a great opportunity to see the glacier itself and to explore the informative Norwegian Glacier Museum.

Day Five

Our optional Norway in a Nutshell excursion is an unmissable tour of one of the world's most scenic regions. The day includes a ride on the world-famous Flamsbana line from Myrdal to Flam - a remarkable 20km descent down the steep-sided valley - and a spectacular two-hour cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.

Day Six

Spend today's included excursion exploring beautiful Sognefjord and the fascinating Sogn Folk Museum at Kaupanger, with its fine collection of fishing and 'ice' boats that reflect Norway's age-old interaction with the sea and the fjords.

Day Seven

Spend your final day in Balestrand relaxing as you make the very most of the village and its surroundings. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel at the end of an unforgettable week in one of the world's most beautiful corners.

Day Eight

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

Although we had a bad start to the holiday (by missing the flight due to road and train disruption), when we finally arrived late at our destination, the resort and hotel were idyllic. The trips were informative and enjoyable and the coach beautifully comfortable and expertly driven. Spectacular scenery and delightful little villages and towns. Brilliant tour group - lovely people and fun to be with.
My only comment would be that the included Bergen trip , with late arrival back to the hotel(8:30 pm) was followed by an early start ( 7:40 ) the next morning for the optional excursion. Perhaps these would be better on different days.Otherwise an amazing holiday in a fabulous country. Will definitely use NewmarketTravel again, based on this experience.

Luton Couple
The included trip to Bergen was a very long day. I think that the day in Bergen should have been at the start of the holiday and then we could have travelled to Balestrand.
We stayed in the Hotel extension and found that noises from other rooms were very annoying. Room very basic - no fridge or safe.
The old part of the Hotel was lovely as was the food and the location.

MARJORIE

Amazing hotel and a great choice of lovely fresh food for breakfast and dinner. Peter, our Tour Manager, was very knowledgeable and helpful. The excursions were wonderful, but the starts were very early for a holiday and too close together, four days in a row! It might have been more restful to have two days of excursions, then a 'rest day', followed by the other excursions. Norway is a beautiful country and I loved this holiday.
As usual, Newmarket gave us lots of extras - waterfalls, stave churches, viewpoints and interesting facts and stories about the area.

Because of the spectacular scenery the 4 hour transfer went remarkably quickly. The tour guide was excellent and trips all very enjoyable. We were lucky having good weather, even in Bergen. The hotel was in a beautiful setting, food excellent and staff very friendly.
