The Norway in a nutshell® winter round trip from Voss

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.
After your fjord cruise you arrive in the small village of Flåm, nestled in the innermost part of the Aurlandsfjord, where your tour continues by taking the legendary Flåm Railway. The Flåm Railway offers spectacular panoramicviews to some of the wildest and most magnificent winter nature in the Norwegian fjord landscape.

There are different ways of completing this tour. You can for instance start your tour by train and travel in the opposite direction as described above. You decide which option suits you best during an easy booking process. 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 with viking dinner or some snowshoe hiking in Flåm?
One last tip: Dress warmly and bundle up - it can get very cold in the fjords!
