Starting from Oslo, you first set out on a westbound train journey through scenic mountain terrain on the Bergen Railway. Upon arrival in Myrdal, you disembark and change trains to the legendary Flåm Railway. The Flåm Railway offers spectacular panoramic views to some of the wildest and most magnificent nature in the Norwegian fjord landscape.

Your journey continues from Flåm with a fjord cruise on the magnificent Aurlandsfjord and on the and dramatic and narrow Nærøyfjord. The Aurlandsfjord is a picturesque fjord that offers stunning views, while the Nærøyfjord is a dramatic fjord surrounded by high mountains. Nærøyfjorden is one of the most narrow fjords in Europe and included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

After your fjord cruise you arrive in the small village of Gudvangen, nestled in the innermost part of Nærøyfjorden. From here the journey continues with a bus trip through Nærøydalen, with its charming villages and scenic nature landscape. From May-September the bus travels down the steep hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva. The bus will arrive in Voss, where you continue the tour by train on the Bergen Railway to Bergen.

This trip sets you up to give you a taste of a variety of places in Norway! Leaving Oslo, the train ride will take you up to experience the Flam railroad, one of the most scenic railroads on earth, then you'll be bussed down for a riverboat cruise through one of the fjords. Scenic is an understatement!

What an awesome trip! Got to see so many amazing landscapes. Doing it all in one day is very exhausting though, I would recommend spending one night in Flåm to break it up into a two day excursion. It’s so so beautiful there, so you wouldn’t regret it!

We really enjoyed the self guided tour. Step by step instructions were provided on email prior to arriving in Norway. I had some questions the night before and the local guide was very accommodating and went over everything with me by phone. Highly recommend this self-guided tour for people who like to manage on their own.

GREAT WAY TO SEE NORWAY IF YOU HAVE A LIMITED AMOUNT OF TIME. THE TRIP FROM GEILO TO MYRDAL WAS THE BEST. I SAT ON THE SOUTH SIDE OF THE TRAIN WHICH AFFORDED THE BEST VIEW THE LAST PART OF THE TRIP. WATERFALL FROM MYRDAL TO FLAN IS NOT TO BE MISSED.

The local tour guide in Oslo, Ivan did a great job! he did what he said he would and was responsive to my email questions. It is a LONG day and we are fit, so once you get to Bergen, if you can, stay the night. Lots of nice hotels close enough to walk from the train station or take the tram to the end of the line, which saves you a few blocks of toting bags. There are a number of 'fjords' that the tour outfits go through and this one is nice not the one that they write about in the tour book, Sognefjord, but great nonetheless.

Take this self-guided Oslo to Bergen tour if you need to get from Oslo to Bergen within a day. Ivan and Artus were excellent in arranging the tour and going out of their way to provide top-class service. Well done Ivan and Artus!! From Oslo to Flam, the scenery between Geilo to Myrdal is quite amazing - lakes, snow-capped mountains and partially frozen rivers even in early summer! If the tour allows, would recommend staying overnight at Flam before continuing to Bergen the following morning for a more leisurely journey. If staying over at Flam, a must see side trip is Stegastein Viewpoint, a half hour bus ride from Flam.

The Norway in a Nutshell trip is a delight, not to be missed, but buying these through Viator is not wise. Tickets must still be picked up at the vendor's at the train station, and their hours are limited, especially on weekends. A better approach is to buy the tickets in person previous to the day you plan to take the trip.
