Norway in a nutshell® Winter Tour
This legendary tour takes you through Norway’s most breathtaking UNESCO-protected fjord and mountain scenery, as well as a trip on Europe’s top scenic rail journey.
The Norway in a nutshell® winter tour can be taken as a round trip with return to your starting destination or as a one-way trip. You can start your tour in Oslo, Bergen, Flåm or Voss. You customize your own trip to include overnight stays and activities before, after or along the route!
On the tour you will travel through some of Norway's most beautiful fjord scenery. You will experience the scenic Bergen Railway and the breathtaking Flåm Railway. Traveling on the different railway lines during winter is a special and memorable experience. On the Flåm and Bergen Railway you can sit back and enjoy spectacular panoramic views of the white, wild and wonderful winter landscape.
You will also get to experience the Aurlandsfjord and the narrow and dramatic UNESCO-protected Nærøyfjord. 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.
You travel on your own by following your travel itinerary. When booking a tour, you will also gain access to the Fjord Tours Travel Guide APP which is a "digital guidebook" for your tour. Read more about the app HERE.
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!
