Your Itinerary —
Fly from UK to Oslo’s Gardermoen airport, transferring on arrival by high speed rail to the city centre. Stay for 2 nights at the Scandic Vulkan.
2nd Day - Oslo
You have all day to discover the Viking Capital - look at the haunting image of Edvard Munch’s Scream at the National Gallery, take in the Viking Ship Museum, Nansen’s Fram or the open air Folk Museums on Bygdøy; hang out down by Aker Brygge or walk on the roof of the Opera House. At night you’re spoilt for choice with an eclectic bar & restaurant scene running the gamut from retro cocktail Bar Boca to Bent Stiansen’s Michelin starred Statholdergaarden.
Leave early on the Bergensbanen climbing high into the mountains to Myrdal in Aurland where you join the eponymous mountain railway down to Flam village at the head of the Aurlandsfjord. The railway descends 20 metres past rivers cutting through deep ravines and snow-capped mountains with mountain farms clinging to their sides and waterfalls plunging from their peaks.
Please note: prior to May 1st this journey will invariably be by main road because of winter road conditions.
The Gateway to the Fjords is filled with attractions; take the funicular up Mount Fløyen for a walk on one of the many marked paths, stroll around the fish market, take a fast ferry into the fjords.
5th Day - Bergen to UK
Morning at leisure before return scheduled flight to the UK
