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, Geilo or Voss. You customize your own trip to include overnight stays and activities before, after, or along the route!
During the tour, 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 is included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.
Traveling in the winter season is highly recommended since there are fewer 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!
One last tip: Dress warmly and bundle up - it can get very cold in the fjords!
