Norway’s most popular & Sustainable Tour
The Norway in a nutshell® tour popularity is due to the fact that it is the best way for getting the distilled Norway experience; from cities to mountains to fjords. Travelers also have the convenience of planning for a one-day trip or putting together a multi-day itinerary. Sustainability is another important factor as travel is based on railways and electric ferries.
Using public transport (trains, ferries, and buses) on your Norway tour means safe and easy travel. You and your family will tour the country on modern, comfortable trains and buses as well as state-of-the-art electric ferries. Several of the trains also have cafes and a play area for children where they can roam about! With us you get to customize your travel plan - adding activities and accommodation that fit your itinerary, interests and budget.
