Eastern Norway with Lillehammer
Our combined licensed guide and driver can take you along Norway’s largest lake to Lillehammer, site of the 1994 Winter Olympics – (and the new home for Little Steven van Zant Lilyhammer)
A visit to the Maihaugen Open Air Folk Museum with its old farm buildings and Stavechurch is recommended. For children, a trip to the Hunderfossen amusement park.
Village of Lom and Jotunheimen mountain area
The valleys with Lom and Jotunheimen mountain area. After the Möre alps, this is the driest area of Norway which has made preservation of nearly 1000-year old buildings possible.
The area is excellent for reindeer hunting and summer skiing and is close to Norway’s highest mountain Galdhöpiggen (2469 m/7095 feet). The area is also well-known for traditional gourmet dining. And a visit to the Lom Stave Church from late 1100 is a must.
Crossing from east walleys to the western fjords
Crossing the Strynefjell mountain en route to Geiranger.
This is a scenic road from 1894, later modernised and stop for a great fjord view from Dalsnibba peak where the old road leads us up to 1.476 m (4.843 feet) above sea level. Slow scenic drive descending to the tiny village of Geiranger. The historic and modern first class Hotel Union recommended
Geiranger Fjord Area
“The Geiranger Fjord is surrounded by some of the steepest mountains on the entire west coast. It is very narrow and has no habitable shore area, for the precipitous heights rise in sheer and rugged strata almost straight out of the water. Foaming waterfalls plunge into the fjord from jagged peaks. There are, however, a few mountain farms here, and of these one or two have such hazardous access, by paths that wind around steep precipices, and by bridges that are fixed to the mountain with iron bolts and rings, that they bear witness in a most striking way to the remarkable powers of invention which the challenges of nature have developed in man.” – One of the fjord farm wives living there during the last century.

Ålesund at Atlantic Coast
The tour can be enhanced with a day (and night) visit to Ålesund the great Jugend (Art Nouveau) style city. After the great fire in 1904 the town was totally rebuild in stone, brick, and mortar in the architectural style of the time.
Ålesund is named after the canal or strait which is called a “sund” in Norwegian in the shape of an Eel which is called “Ål”.

Loen & Briksdal
Guests from all over the world come to visit Loen and this famous glacier arm called Briksdalsbreen, set attractively between roaring waterfalls and high peaks. From 1200 meters (3,937 feet) the glacier plunges down into the beautiful Briksdalen Valley.
Loen Skylift is perfect for exploring the mountains by day — and pampering yourself by night. The spectacular gondola rockets you 3,315 feet/1011 m up Mount Hoven in just 5 minutes. At the top, combine fjord views from a restaurant table with an excellent lunch or dinner with local ingredients.
Just below the Skylift is the traditional Spa Hotel Alexandra
Flåm & Næröyfjord
UNESCO World Heritage protected landscape. We recommend Fjord sightseeing with the ultra-modern ship “Vision Of The Fjord” sailing from Flåm through the narrow Næröy Fjord to Gudvangen.
Hotels and restaurants in the area are excellent, among them the Ægir local brewery and its Viking style pub. A trip on the spectacular railway from the fjord to the mountains, Flåmsbanen, is unmissable.Read more
Convenient transportation by the Fjord boat to Bergen by where we can arrange for you to be picked up by your limousine. Bergen is the second largest city in Norway.
