4.4 / 5

based on 61 reviews

It is a spectacular journey and one that would be hard to organize on your own. The one part that was chaotic was getting on the ferry, and then getting on the bus. There were multiple ferries at the dock and it was unclear which to get on. Then, getting on the bus, there was chaos--there were 4 buses there, but we didn't know that and no one told us. But the top of the mountain, the trip down to Flam by rail, and then the boat on the fjord are all fantastic.

Trip was very long and can get quite exhausting. Itinerary was super well-organised from train, railway, cruise to bus. I personally thought the cruise could be omitted if anyone planned to do this on their own. The tour is a fantastic way to do Oslo to Bergen. I would recommend hiking / cycling after the Flam railway which is just GREAT!

This trip is wonderful, because we could see Norwegian landscape in full. Whether it was from car or from the ship. We have also opportunity to taste goat cheese and goat salami. Frode was excellent guide. He knows a lot about every part of our way. We spent wonderful 11 hours with him. We recommend this trip to every one.

Fantastic experience that gave so much! All information came as it should and easy to follow! I can warmly recommend this trip

Agnis was amazing. He was very accommodating and even took me to see two stave churches.
