Tour Highlights

The spectacular Trollstigen Road

The Trollstigen Road (or Troll's Path) is a spectacular mountain road and one of Norway's most popular National Scenic Routes. You travel by bus between Geiranger and Åndalsnes via Trollstigen Road, and there are several installations and viewpoints along the route. There will be a 25 minutes photo stop at Trollstigen viewpoint. The bus trip is a comfortable and exciting experience that also includes audio guiding, so while listening to the fascinating history of the road, you can enjoy sensational views from your window. 

Cruising the Geirangerfjord

One of the many highlights of this tour is cruising the UNESCO-protected Geirangerfjord, one of Norway's most spectacular fjords. Along the fjord, there are a number of abandoned mountain farms and impressive waterfalls, including the Seven Sisters and the Suitor. If you look up towards the towering mountains surrounding the fjord, you will see mountain farms clinging to the cliffs. It's hard to believe that people actually lived there not too long ago! Enjoy a cup of coffee or maybe even a waffle, as the boat slides slowly past the magnificent landscapes between the charming coastal town of Ålesund and the idyllic Geiranger.

The Art Nouveau City of Ålesund

Ålesund is a truly stunning town! It is beautifully located on the western coast of Norway, where the mountains and fjords meet the Atlantic Ocean. The city is known for its Art Noveau architecture and wide selection of exciting activities. Here, you will find a variety of towers, spires, and buildings with beautiful decorations, and just taking a quick stroll through the city can be quite an adventure. Did you know that Ålesund is even a part of the Réseau Art Nouveau Network, a European network of Jugend-style cities, including cities like Barcelona, Brussels, Vienna, Riga, and Glasgow?

The Raumabanen Railway

On the Raumabanen Railway, you will experience one of Norway's most beautiful and wild stretches of railway. The train ride between Dombås and Åndalsnes gives you a unique opportunity to enjoy a journey through contrasting, wild and magnificent scenery. From the comfort of your seat, you can admire the impending and majestic Trollveggen (The Troll Wall), spectacular waterfalls at the Kylling Bridge, and the emerald green Rauma River.

The Dovre Railway

The Dovre Railway makes its way through some of Norway’s best national parks, mountains, and scenic attractions. The comfortable train ride takes you through the stunning Gudbrandsdalen valley and across the mighty Dovrefjell mountain range. This area is said to be the home of the mountain Troll King Dovregubben, known from both Ibsen's literature and Grieg's music. The train also runs along the Lågen river, with its turquoise meltwater from the mountain glaciers.
