Sognefjord in a nutshell™
A relaxing journey on Norway’s longest and deepest fjord
Travel the waterway through the heart of the Norwegian fjord- and mountain landscape on the beautiful Sognefjord. This relaxing fjord experience also includes scenic train journeys with the Flåmsbana and Bergen Railway.
The Sognefjord, Norway’s longest and deepest fjord, is surrounded by exceptional natural beauty, high mountains, and roaring waterfalls. Along the fjord, you will find charming villages where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery or varied activities.
On this tour, you travel comfortably by express boat on the impressive Sognefjord. You can "hop off” along the way and spend one or more nights in the beautiful fjord villages of Balestrand or Flåm. While taking a fjord break you can explore the landscape, taste the local cuisine or join in on an exciting activity.
In addition to the fjord cruise on the Sognefjord, you get to experience 2 amazing train rides. The spectacular Flåmsbana offers panoramic views of wild and magnificent nature, and has been named "the world's most beautiful train ride". The Bergen Railway takes you on a comfortable journey, where you can relax and enjoy the fjord- and highland landscape passing by your window.
Starting points and travel options
You can start your tour from Oslo, Bergen, or Voss and the tour can be taken as a one-way trip or a round trip with a return to your starting point.
The Sognefjord in a nutshell trip can be taken as a day trip, but we highly recommend that you take the trip as a longer experience over several days. Feel free to spend a few nights in one of the small villages along the route to find peace and relaxation in the inspiring landscape.
Have a great trip!
