The Norway in a nutshell® winter round trip from Flåm

Your start your tour by taking a fjord cruice from Flåm on the narrow Nærøyfjord and the magnificent Aurlandsfjord. The Aurlandsfjord is a picturesque fjord that offers stunning winter views, while the Nærøyfjord is a dramatic fjord surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Nærøyfjorden is one of the most narrow fjords in Europe and included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

By the end of the fjord cruise you arrive in the small village of Gudvangen, nestled in the innermost part of the Nærøyfjord. From here the journey continues with a bus trip through Nærøydalen, with its charming villages and scenic winter nature landscape

From Voss the tour continues with a scenic train ride on the Bergen Railway to Myrdal, where you change trains to the legendary Flåm Railway. The Flåm Railway offers spectacular panoramic views to some of the wildest and most magnificent winter nature in the Norwegian fjord landscape. The Flåm Railway will take you back to your starting point in Flåm.

Travel tip

Traveling in the winter season is highly recommended, since there are less people and more room for travelers to enjoy the view. You can complete the tour in one day, but we highly recommend that you take your time by adding overnight stays and activities along the route!

By taking your time, you can enjoy the beautiful scenery or participate in several exciting winter activities. What about a winter fjord safari or some snowshoe hiking in Flåm?

One last tip: Dress warmly and bundle up - it can get very cold in the fjords!
