Hurtigruten & Norway in a nutshell® tour from Bergen
By starting your tour in Bergen, you first embark on the popular Norway in a nutshell® tour. Here you will experience the scenic Bergen Railway, the breathtaking Flåm Railway, the Aurlandsfjord and the narrow Nærøyfjord on a fjord cruise and the steep hairpin bends of Stalheimskleiva (May-September). After one or multiple days on this first part of the journey, you arrive in Oslo where an overnight stay is required.
From Oslo you travel on either the Dovre Railway to Trondheim, or you take the Røros Railway to Røros. The Dovre Railway travels through beautiful valley and mountain terrain, while the Røros Railway takes you to Røros through rugged mountain wilderness.
Røros is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with authentic wooden structures and buildings. It is a charming and fascinating place and we highly recommend choosing the tour option that includes a visit to Røros. If you choose to include Røros to your tour, an overnight stay here is required before continuing on to Trondheim.
From Trondheim you embark on a magnificent coastal cruise with Hurtigruten along the west-coast of Norway. You spend one night on the Hurtigruten before arriving back in Bergen.
This trip takes you to Norway’s three largest cities – Oslo, Bergen and Trondheim – which have a wide range of tourist attractions, restaurants and shopping opportunities.
You can customize your own tour by adding hotels and activities of your choice along the route. By adding overnight stays, you can take your time and enjoy the beautiful scenery, or partake in varied and exciting activities. There are loads of options for activities and hotels along the route.
You travel on your own by following your travel itinerary. On the Norway in a nutshell® part of the tour, you will also receive a handy and informative "Norway in a nutshell® - Travelers Guide" booklet.
