 One of the world's most scenic corners

Journey to Western Norway's Fjord Country - one of the world's most delightful destinations. Few places can match the spectacle of this breathtaking region where sheer mountainsides plunge into the deep, dark waters of the Norwegian fjords, and where soaring peaks tower over unspoilt forests, lakes and pristine glaciers.

  • Staying in a four-star Swiss-style fjord-side hotel
  • A journey by boat through spectacular scenery to Bergen
  • Discovering the region on a fascinating Fjord-Life tour
  • Touring Norway's interior on unforgettable optional excursions to the vast Jostedal Glacier, and to Mydal, Flam and Gudvangen
  • Buffet-style meals served in a fine restaurant overlooking the Fjord
  • A warm welcome, stunning scenery and beautiful views

What does the price include?

  • Return flights from the UK to Bergen
  • Comfortable, air-conditioned coach travel and transfers
  • A cruise to Bergen
  • The full-day 'Fjord-Life' tour

Must try: Taking a refreshing dip in the still, blue waters of Sognefjord.

Fascinating fact: Bergen's Floibanen funicular incorporates two cars. Each was named by the winners of a competition and both are individually painted: Blamann is blue, and Rodhette (the Norwegian version of Little Red Riding Hood) is red.

You say: "The holiday was wonderful, interesting and Norway is a beautiful place."

Your Itinerary

Day One: Fly to Norway

Fly to Bergen, meet your Tour Manager and board our coach to travel through Norway's spectacular scenery to your hotel, in the idyllic village of Balestrand.

Day Two: Leisure day in Balestrand

Today, you'll have time to get to know Balestrand. The village is located on the northern shore of Sognefjord, Norway's longest and deepest fjord, and has a long history of welcoming British travellers searching for quiet countryside and clear mountain air. Explore its shops, cafe, historic English wooden church, neat cottages and orchards, and enjoy a warm welcome from the friendly inhabitants virtually everywhere you go.

Day Three: Included Bergen cruise excursion

Join your first excursion, today, as we board the morning express boat for a day trip to Bergen - city of cobbled streets and medieval houses, and birthplace of the composer Edvard Grieg. Visit the vibrant harbour and open-air fish market, stroll past the wooden warehouses of Bryggen and perhaps take a seven-minute trip on the Floibanen funicular up 'Mount' Floyen.

Day Four: Optional Jostedal Glacier excursion

Join us for today's optional visit to the Jostedal Glacier, mainland Europe's largest ice-floe. This mesmerising mass of ice covers 487 square kilometres in the heart of an even larger national park threaded with icy glacial rivers fed by the glacier's melt water. See the glacier up close, and learn more about its slowly shifting limbs at the fascinating Norwegian Glacier Museum.

Day Five: Optional Norway in a Nutshell excursion

The famous Norway In A Nutshell tour takes in the most stunning parts of the region. Ride the renowned Flamsbana branch line, which drops 20km down the steep-sided valley from Myrdal to Flam, and take a two-hour fjord cruise through Aurlandsfjord and Naeroyfjord to the tiny port of Gudvangen.

Day Six: Included 'Fjord-Life' excursion

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 reflects 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 soak up the tranquillity of your surroundings, and make the very most of the village. This evening, enjoy a final dinner in the hotel and look back on the highlights of your unique Norwegian fjords holiday.

Day Eight: Fly back to the UK

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