Inspiration 2 – The Fjords Express Route

8 waypoints

Should you wish to tour the Fjord area, we are happy to arrange a suitable itinerary in collaboration with our partners.  We recommend spending 2-3 days. A visit to the area can be combined with one of our Oslo day tours. Our driverguide can then take you the shortest way from Oslo to the west coast fjords. This route crosses the mountains and goes through the inland valleys to the southern part of the UNESCO World Heritage Fjord landscape of Nærøy Fjord and Flåm. The drive is 5-6 hours each way, so we recommended a minimum two nights. An extra day to see Bergen is also an option.

Remember that the road itself, with its spectacular scenery, is the goal when travelling in Norway! All our suggested tours can be freely combined according to your wishes and interests. And if you wish to go particular places, to see a location of special interest to you or even to visit friends or relatives, we will be happy to take you there!

Please send us a non-binding request to get in touch and we will propose an itinerary in collaboration with our partners. If you are a travel agent or incoming operator for Norway tours in the Fjord area, we are happy to cooperate to create the best possible travel experience for your guests.

Hadeland & Hallingdal

 

Visit the Hadeland Glasswork Village with its museum and factory outlet before we enter the valley of Hallingdal which is situated midway between Bergen and Oslo.

Hallingdal offers beautiful landscapes and mountains for an active holiday; mountain lakes and rivers with unique fishing possibilities, horseback riding, climbing, mountainbiking and a superb hiking terrain in the summer.

For the youngest we recommend The Bear Park at Flå and Langedrag Nature Park which focus on providing close contact between people and animals such as bear, elk, reindeer, horses and cows.

The route passes Hemsedal, Norway’s most popular winter sport resort.

Flåm & Næröy Fjord

UNESCO World Heritage protected landscape. We recommend the very popular Fjord sightseeing with the ultra-modern ship “Vision Of The Fjord” sailing from Flåm through the narrow Næröy Fjord to Gudvangen.

The area has excellent hotels and restaurants, among them the Ægir local brewery and its Viking style pub. A ride on the spectacular railway from the fjord to mountains, Flåmsbanen, is an unforgettable experience.

Bergen - Capital of the West

Convenient transportation by the Fjord boat to Bergen where you will be picked up by your limousine. Bergen is the second largest city in Norway. The old Bryggen, which also a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the most popular attraction.  Historically, the most influence on the city’s development was by the German Hansa merchants who dominated it for 400 years from the year 1350.

A visit to the Fish Market on the pier is recommended!

Voss Village

Called the Adrenaline capital of Norway, Voss greets you with snowy mountain tops, valleys, forests, rivers, waterfalls and lakes. Perfect for river Rafting and other adventures.

But Voss also has a long food heritage and if you are looking for local traditional tastes, you should visit Smalahovetunet. Here, in a farmhouse dating from the 1700s, you will be served traditional style lamb meat (“smalahove” and “pinnakjøt”), sour cream porridge, and cured and seasoned meat, in addition to other local specialities.

Hardangervidda Highland National Park

We follow the scenic Route 7 to explore Norway’s breathtaking landscapes in Hardangervidda National Park. It is the largest plateau of its kind in Europe, with a cold year-round alpine climate, and one of Norway’s largest glaciers, Hardangerjøkulen, is situated here.

Hardangervidda is a popular tourist and leisure destination, and it is ideal for many outdoor activities. The landscape is characterized by barren, treeless moorland interrupted by numerous pools, lakes, rivers and streams.

Borgund Stave Church

The route pass close by Borgund Stave Church in Lærdal which is one of our best preserved and impressing churches from early Christianity. The church probably built late 1100 or early 1200 AD.

In the church we also find runic inscriptions (old Nordic letters). Read more of the stave churches in our UNESCO complementary article.
