Inspiration 4 – Southern Fjords with Stavanger, Bergen and Flåm

11 waypoints

Should you wish to tour the Southern Fjords, we are happy to arrange a suitable itinerary in collaboration with our partners.  If you wish to see the whole area, we recommend spending 3-4 days. A visit to the area can also be combined with our one-day Oslo sightseeing which gives a combination of modern and historic Oslo with the best of the southern Fjords like Lysefjord and Hardangerfjord. We visit Norway’s offshore oil capital Stavanger with a stop, for the adventurous, to climb or see from sea or air Prekestolen (the Pulpit Rock).  This tour can also continue onward to the second largest city of Norway, Bergen and the UNESCO heritage town of Flåm & Neröyfjord and then cross the Hardangervidda Highlands back to Oslo.

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 Geirangerfjord, Bergen or Flåm area, we are happy to cooperate to create the best possible travel experience for your guests.

The UNESCO Heritage town of Rjukan

The historic town of Rjukan, in its entirety, captures the lived experience of industrial workers at the beginning of the 20th century, as well as the infrastructure required to support an industrial site at that time.  Rjukan is also known for one of the most spectacular sabotage actions in World War 2. A group of men known as the Heros of Telemark blew up Hitler’s heavy water production, thus preventing the development of the nuclear bomb.

Setesdal - the most well-preserved Farming culture

We take you through Setesdal with its wild river Otra and old logged farm houses. Because of difficult access before the railway, this valley was quite isolated until late 1800, and its inhabitants were therefore able to preserve our old traditions in food, music, wood carving and rose painting.

Nowadays the municipalities are quite rich due to the export of hydroelectric power.
